THINGS I DO DIFFERENTLY & LEARNED BECAUSE OF YOUTUBE - UD DETOUR GRWM




When I begin to film for youtube, I often think about the things I do differently now that I've spent a couple of years on camera.  Why not talk about them for my channel while doing a Get Ready With Me with the new Urban Decay On The Run Detour palette, ($25) ?   Urban Decay came out with three snack sized palettes that are so cute, so wearable and so creamy smooth!!!  The first one I filmed is Detour and oh do the hubs and I love it!

swatches

Switchback is a really cool transformer shade that is iridescent to green and doesn't show it's brilliance in a flat picture as most iridescent shades don't.  Off The Grid is the best light creamy brow bone accent I've ever used.   It will probably be the first shade I go through in the palette.

swatches

A couple other new and cool products I used are the Pixi Beauty GlowCakes, ($28).  They each bear a gradient of color from highlight to bronzer in nude and pink formats.  The nude is GildedBare and the pink is PinkChampagne.

I also used the new Smith Cosmetics Sculpting Series brushes that I'd won in a giveaway!!  Bliss!!!  I'll be covering these in a dedicated video in the future.  Just know some of these became fast favorites.

Here's the video to see my thoughts and the product in use.  Have you ever wondered if you'd change because of being on youtube?  Check it out!
