{Makeup Monday} My FIRST Youtube Video: Perfect Red Lips for Valentine's Day

I can't believe that Valentine's Day is tomorrow... 2017 is moving so fast! I guess that makes today Galentine's Day (read: a fictional "holiday" created by Leslie Knope of Parks & Rec). Galentine's Day is a day to celebrate the ladies (preferably over breakfast). Due to my perpetual singledom, for me, every day is Galentine's Day (more about this on the blog this week). Although, today I made it *extra* special by making myself a scrumptious breakfast before heading out. 

Last week, I spent an afternoon at the DubLoft in Toronto. The DubLoft is a studio space owned by DubDub (they have locations in Toronto & Montreal - and are expanding to NYC) where I was able to curate, film, and edit video content, all in a few hours. I decided to participate in their #RedLipCampaign by filming a review the best 'reds' to achieve the perfect Valentine's Day look. The content was then edited with DubSuite - which is free on the iOS App Store. Anyone can download, and use the video editor-- it's actually pretty easy to use! I plan on shooting many more videos with the DubSuite team in the upcoming weeks! They were so knowledgeable and supportive during the filming of my first video (read: I was pretty darn nervous!).

ALSO, I just launched my Youtube Channel, which you can check out here
My hope is to create and share interesting and engaging videos, on the regular. What you can expect to see on YouTube if you follow me: interviews, rants, tutorials, hauls and reviews. Maybe I'll even do some Astrology segments.. we'll see! 
Watch my video here and on YouTube! Let me know what you think in the comments - I'd love to create more video content for you! 

In my *first ever* video, I compared five red lipsticks in pursuit of uncovering the perfect Valentine's Day Red Lip. Here is a list of the five products I tested and where to find them:
1. YSL Vinyl Creme in 402 Rouge Remix (available here) - $42
2. Anastasia Beverly Hills in Serafine (available here) - $26
3. Maybelline Liquid Matte in Rebel Red (available here) - $8
4. Huda Beauty in Famous (available here) - $26
5. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw (available here) - $24

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day tomorrow. Whether you are taken or single, don't forget that you are worthy of love and kindness (especially from yourself). I will be sharing some of my self-care strategies, pictures from a recent self-love inspired photoshoot, and some of my dating misadventures this week on the blog - it's a big week FULL of content.
