It seems like almost every weekend I have a new obsession! Whether it’s full cap wigs, lace front wigs, half wigs, to MAC makeup, to NYX Cosmetics, Coastal Scents…you name it, once I find out about it, then I have a weekend obsession with it. I go to the website and then I’m all over youtube trying to find reviews and tutorials on the said product. So last week as you can see, it was NYX Cosmetics…not just last week, it’s been a couple of weeks for them. This week I’ve been watching a lot of vids about creating my own hair extensions. I already know how to glue in tracts of hair, I’ve done that since highschool. But I hate glue. It’s messy and never comes out well without taking some hair out. I won’t glue any of my wigs either. So I’ve always wanted to try clip-ins like celebs use, but those can be upwards of $100 a pack!! What’s the solution? Buying your own tracts from online or your BSS and buying wigclips, hair thread, and a needle and voila! you have your own clip-in extensions for much much less than you would have spent had you bought them pre-made.
So everytime that I’m on these mission/obsessions I find these great new Gurus to subscribe to on youtube! So I figured I would share some of my favorite newest finds with you guys…
http://www.youtube.com/user/lilpumpkinpie05–definitely my newest addiction! She’s a MAC artist and I’m loving loving loving her eye looks!
Ok so that was just a few of my latest additions. Mostly women of color bc although I’ve followed many based on hair reasons, I’ve just stumbled upon a few when I was looking up NYX Cosmetics and then when I was looking up clip-in extensions, I found these fab makeup channels!!! And here are a few of my favorite ladies on youtube…how could I possibly make up a list w/o including my absolute favorites!!!
http://www.youtube.com/user/DulceCandy87–i think she’s my absolute favorite! she’s sooo pretty and down to earth and bubbly! unfortunately my hubby likes her too! but it’s all good, she’s young but bc she’s been to Iraq she much more mature. I also follow her fashion blog on here too, her link is to your left hand side I believe.
http://www.youtube.com/user/MakeupByTiffanyD–I learn so much from her! love her lots!
http://www.youtube.com/user/MakeupByLeinaBaaaby –i enjoy her vids a lot. i love that she likes to re-create looks from popular music videos.
Yes I’m subscribed to a tons more peeps on youtube. But these are the latest ladies I’ve come across. I have to really like your vids to wanna subscribe! I usually tend to stay away from the younger ladies…maybe it makes me feel too old? idk, but i just don’t like to follow the young young crowd…Dulce Candy and Leina Baaaby are kinda young, but they’re over 20 and I think are the youngest that I follow. So if you’d like to learn more about makeup and fashion
then I highly recommend taking a look at these channels. I’m all about spreading the knowledge! x♥x♥
