Best-of-the-Week: YouTube Makeup Videos

Happy Friday, everyone! Let’s just take a moment to flashback to last Friday when I was in beautiful Miami, FL. The weather was PERFECTION – low 80s, no humidity, sunny with a light breeze. Mr. Brighter Darling and I enjoyed the beach, pool and lots of yummy Cuban/Spanish food.  Upon our return, I had lots of time to catch up on some really great content for this week’s best YouTube makeup videos. We have some beauty favorites for spring, a collection of medical grade skin care for oily/acne prone skin (yassss) and *THE* Adele makeup tutorial (done by her actual MUA).

Alex points out a couple of new-to-me products for the spring – particularly that throwback TooFaced liquid bronzer product (so pretty)! I love Alex’s makeup style so obviously, I pay close attention to her favorite things. Anything else catch your eye from her recommendations?

If you’ve been following my Best-of YouTube series, you have seen Brianna before. She owns a medical grade skin care shopping site in conjunction with a dermatologist’s office she [used to?] works for. I’ve ordered from the site before and had no issues – affordable/free and fast shipping. But regardless, I have dehydrated yet oily/acne prone skin so this video was RIGHT UP MY ALLEY. I’m really eyeing the Epionce Lytic products. I’ve heard Azelaic Acid is incredible for adult acne (and it’s pregnancy safe for my mommies-to-be!), but it can be hard to find without a prescription, so that product sounds ideal.

Get yourself a snack and cocktail for this video because it’s a bit longer (22 minutes), but just so. stunning. Who’s going to be practicing that ridiculously perfect cat eye this weekend?!
