Drugstore Series- NYC!

This year I have started a Drugstore series featuring drugstore products of course. The main goal of the series is not the actual technique of the tutorial but instead just featuring the products and showing that we can apply on a face of makeup from start to finish using drugstore products which I love.

There will be a new video each month for the series and it will feature a new brand from the drugstore. For the month of January I am featuring NYC products. Everything from my foundation to my lipgloss is a product from the NYC brand. I hope you enjoy it and maybe discover some products you may want to try.

FIRST Blog!!!

I am super excited!!! I finally decided to make a blog in addition to my YouTube beauty channel. I've only been making videos on YouTube for about three months but I already love it. I was eager to start a blog because it seems like an easier way to do reviews and share information about different products that I am trying. I've really learned a lot from the YouTube beauty community and I want to continue to expand on that and also hopefully contribute some of my thoughts.

On my blog I will post pics of daily makeup looks I use and let you know everything that I am wearing. Most importantly I will utilize this to post reviews of products I like, and even the ones I don't. I hope to give you a better idea of what's worth your money and what's not.

Again I am super excited and I will be updating my blog on a regular basis to keep up with the products I am using.

Thanks for stopping by.

Keep Smiling!!!
