Link Roundup: my Favorite YouTube Tutorials

Hey everyone, if you have been reading my blog for a while you know I am a total makeup junkie and it is about 3am and I thought I would do a fun link roundup and share with you guys some of my favorite YouTube makeup tutorials. So here we go!

So this first one isn't even really a beauty tutorial, but one of my favorite makeup artists Klaire DeLys who did this incredible, badass look inspired by the Ghost of Christmas Future.

These next three are my FAVORITE old school Jaclyn Hill tutorials. My go-to look is from her bridal makeup tutorial but I wear it for my every day! Haha

And because who doesn't love Michelle Phan and Tim Burton...
I really love Michelle Phan, Kandee Johnson, and Jaclyn Hill's older tutorials from when I first subscribed to their channels.

I wear this look ALL the time!

I am seriously subscribed to way too many people on YouTube but some of my favorites are: Kathleenlights and Thataylaa are newer loves (as in only been subscribed for about 2 ish years) Jaclyn Hill, Michelle Phan, Kandee Johnson, and Makeup Medic (who sadly stopped posting) are the beauty YouTubers I have been subscribed to for like over 5 years!

Hope you guys enjoyed my super random link roundup!

Tips for Community College Students

Hey guys, since we are in the first couple weeks of back to school, I thought I would make a post dedicated to my fellow community college students. After two years of community and starting on my third, I have come up with three tips for you guys that have really helped me. Hope you enjoy!

1. If you weren't able to register for a class, don't let that deter you. If you are waitlisted, or even not, try and sit in on a couple of different sections of the class. One problem with community college is how over crowded they can be so general ed classes are difficult to snag. Still try for them. Don't underestimate the power of sitting in on a class, I have gotten into several classes by sitting in and talking to the teachers. They will typically help you out and let you know of open sections.

2. Invest in the parking pass. Also, make sure to arrive at least 15 minutes before your class, because parking can be hell! Especially on the first week or two of school when everyone is trying to get classes and before some people drop. Another tip would be to locate the best parking areas relative to your classes so you don't have to go way out of your way.

3. Create a road map. One of the biggest problems I have seen causing students to get caught in the "community college trap" is many don't know what they need to do to graduate or get distracted. Make sure you sit down with a counselor and find out what you need to do to transfer. Even if you still are unsure of a major, start working off of the IGETC transfer plan and go from there.

Hope these tips helped you guys, let me know anything that has really helped you through community college, or just college in general. Hugs from my computer to yours,
