Current Beauty & Lifestyle Favorites + A Quick Update.

It has been a long time since I did a favorites video because for the most part I have been sticking to the same products for the past few months. I realized that some of those “same” products that I have been using non stop, I actually have never talked about on here or on Youtube. Therefore, I decided to film a current favorites video. The difference between this one and all of my other favorites videos is that I included lifestyle favorites as well.

As I mentioned previously on this blog, I am incorporating more lifestyle and hopefully fitness to my blog and Youtube channel so I am excited to finally start putting my words into action!

Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette | Winter Glam ♥

For Christmas I was gifted the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette. Lord knows I’ve been wanting this palette since it first came out! Now, I know there are two other Vice Palette’s but this one is perfect. Urban Decay has become one of my favorite brands throughout the years, so whenever they come out with new palettes I’m usually right on it! This one was a little more on the pricier side and it was out when other beauty products that I wanted more were being released, so unfortunately it fell on the back burner. My boyfriend was kind enough to remember how much I wanted it and purchased it for me as a Christmas gift and I love him forever for that!

With that said, I wanted to do a tutorial using this fabulous palette! the colors are so creamy and so easy to blend, Ugh! you have to try these palettes (or any Urban Decay eye shadow/palette for that matter) if you haven’t already!

I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial, If you do please like my video and share it with your friends. Also, don’t forget to subscribe if you want to stay updated, I plan on staying consistent this year 😉
