I have been watching YouTube since 2010, I remember being at my friends beach house in Southern California and waking up and watching it. So it has been a long time! This kind of blogpost/video has been floating around the internet quite recently and I thought I would get involved. I feel like I can be very influence by others, what they have I tend to want which is such a bad thing! Because that means I end up wanting and buying everything even if I don’t need it. I have picked out the beauty items out of my collection which were 100% influenced by a video I watched on YouTube over the past 6 years!
Let’s start with eye shadow palettes, I never used to like eye shadow, I couldn’t do it on myself but for some reason I kept buying it. When I really started getting into makeup I went out and bought Urban Decay Naked 3 from Debenhams on the whim, even though at that point I still had no idea what I was doing with eyeshadow. That being said, I feel like have a really good palette really allows you to experiment and gives you the motivation to learn.
The next palette that was majorly influenced by YouTube was the Shaaanxo palette when she collaborated with BHCosmetics. When this palette came out I didn’t really think anything of it, but a few months later I came across it online and when I realised they shipped the the U.K I bought it along with the Carly Bybel one.
And the final palette is influenced by Tanya Burr, ofcourse she is in my top 3 YouTubers and so I had to buy one of her palettes and this one is my favourite. Plus this one is affordable and really good quality.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer has been raved about by so many bristling YouTubers that you can’t not know about it. Even though I only bought it a couple of months ago I kind of didn’t want to give into the hype, but I’m glad I did.
Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, this is pretty much a cult mascara and it is 100% amazing! I love wearing it on special occasions as you get full black lashes.
These two highlighters are probally two of the most popular and well known. Highlighters are a great product to invest in because they are going to last such a long time! Mac Soft and Gentle is a shimmery pink shade where The Balm Mary Lou Manizer is a golden shade, which I do prefer.
I had seen everyone going on about Mac lipsticks and at the point I had never even been in a Mac shop. I started collecting Mac lipsticks 2 years ago and bought my first ones on the way to Greece. Since then I havnt been able to stop myself. The shades above are probally two of the most well know, Ruby Woo and Velvet Teddy.
With regards to blush and bronzer without me even telling you I bet you can guess what shades the Nars ones are. Out of these three I’ve had Bahama Mama by The Balm the longest and it’s such a good product for travelling as it’s really compact and really light. And then ofcourse YouTube made me buy Nars Laguna Bronzer and Nars Orgasm Blush.
Let me know what products you’ve bought because of YouTube!
