Uploading Palette Collection!!

Hello All!
I am uploading my Palette Collection video to YouTube right at this moment. For some reason though now, it takes AGES for a video to upload.. last night it took All Night Long. Literally. I started it while I was awake and it went until like 5 this morning. Luckily for me, I was sleeping for most of it. I thought I would try uploading into a different format today, but it is still taking an unbelievably long time to process and upload. Maybe it's my internet connection?
Anyway! As I did with my Peacock Eye Shadow Tutorial, I will post the video here once it is uploaded (So probably tomorrow morning).
Here is some information on my palettes that I currently have until my ELF order comes in (which will HOPEFULLY be tomorrow, weather permitting). 

The first Palette is a 24 color Profusion Palette. The colors are very vibrant and pigmented, but I would recommend a primer and setting spray, as they do tend to wear off easily.
The Next palette is a 15 Color Concealer Palette. I bought this product from Amazon. I love love love these concealers. The coverage is great, and the colors are easily blend-able and turn almost powdery once set.
The next THREE palettes were all one in the same. The same Palette in different shades. The ELF 36 Color Eye Shadow Palette. These come in three different varieties, Everyday, Brights and Natural, I show all three in my video. I love ELF shadows, and I love the company. It's one of my favorites!
The Next palette is a 66 Color Lip Palette. This palette has every color under the sun in it, and all the colors are great. it does have a very weird smell to it, but it does not bother me. If you are one of those people which smell bothers you, then I wouldn't recommend this product.
Next up is a 6 Color Contour Palette. I love this palette. They are all matte colors, and easily build-able for an everyday or dramatic look!
The next palette is a Blush Palette. I couldn't find the exact palette that I purchased, but this one is similar. I love the colors in this palette! There is a perfect tone for everyone, from the lightest to the brightest shade. 
In my video I show 2 other eye shadow palettes- One that I made, and one that was given to me as a gift. As I don't know the brand or where it was purchased, I can't give you guys a link :( The profusion palette is similar, so you could purchase one of those. The colors are great and very pigmented.
The last palette is (I remembered the brand) A Color Workshop (at least I am fairly certain) Palette. i sadly, could not find a link to this product as I think it was some sort of limited edition palette. It's your basic 96 color eye shadow palette that you can find anywhere. 

And those are my palettes as of right now... I'm super excited to get my other three in the mail soon! As well as the other products I ordered... Hopefully I remember to film the unboxing, before I rip everything open like a kid on Christmas morning. 

Again- Thanks for listening to my rambles. Have a great day!!

Peacock Eye Shadow Tutorial!

This is the Eye Shadow tutorial I filmed yesterday! As I type this i am also working on editing my palette Collection video :D YouTube literally took AGES to upload this video, so I'm going to try and play around with file formats... blah blah blah. Anyway! I hope you all have a great and wonderful day!!

Cover Photo For YouTube! Contest?

Hello All-
I forgot to leave a note in my previous post... my YouTube channel doesn't have a cover photo! I am not the most creative person in the world, and it is such a weird size... I thought it would be fun if we had a "contest". I was thinking that if one of my viewers wanted to create a cover photo for my channel that would be AWESOME! Just make sure to credit yourself in one of the corners, so that everyone who visits my channel knows that you made it. I would like it to be beauty related (obviously), but I have no color preference or anything else. If you would like you could include the information directing people to this blog, but that is completely up to the creator. If you can leave pictures in the comments here, that would be great. Otherwise, here is the link to my Facebook page, and you can leave your entries there! Remember to like and share with your friends!

Thanks again for taking the time to listen to my ramblings, and i hope to be getting lots of cover photos :D This will be an ongoing process, if I get more than one I might save them all and switch them out frequently, so SHARE SHARE SHARE your creations!!

I have been away!!

Hello Folks!
I have been away for SO long! Life took hold of the reins there for a while... I was helping raise a set of twins when their mom wasn't in the best place in life, also trying to balance a house and a husband... BUT! Now I'm back!!!

I thought I would jump right into it. Today I filmed 3 videos! The first was a foundation routine... that well... let's just say my computer ate it.. I can't find the files because of the recording software I was using...! So I lost hours of editing and filming. The second video I said screw it, and just went back to filming on my webcam. I have gotten a new laptop since my last posts so this webcam is way better in quality, it records in 480p, instead of 140. That being said, the next video I filmed was something I have never actually done before! I filmed a Peacock Eye Shadow Tutorial, which I am currently in the process of uploading to my YouTube Channel. The final video that I filmed today was my current Palette Collection. I still have to edit this video, but it will be up shortly.

Later in the week or early next week, I will receive my shipment of ELF products that I ordered late last week. I hit an awesome sale! I will either film an unboxing or Haul video of that :)

Thank you for visiting my blog and listening to my rambles for the day!
Visit my youtube channel, and continue to check back in with this blog. I will be updating frequently.
