YouTube Now Has Live Streaming

YouTube Now Has Live Streaming by barbies beauty bits

Video is all the rage right now and going live is the biggest trend on Social Media! With Facebook Live, Snapchat, and Instagram stories, this approach has proven to be a successful add to those social media platforms! And this is why Youtube has decided to jump on this bandwagon as well, and it’s about time.  Honestly, I would have thought this is something they would have done long ago, but it is now available through your YouTube Mobile App. But unfortunately not to everyone.  That’s right. Currently, it is only available to people with 10,000 plus subscribers, bummer I know, but I did read in a blog post that the feature would soon be available to everyone.

How Does YouTube Live Streaming Work

  • First YouTube needs to make sure your account is in good standing and verify your identity with a phone number.
  • Once that happens you can enable live streaming from the Creator Studio tools, with a URL similar to
  • Once your channel is enabled, you have two options to start your live stream:
  • Option 1: "Stream now" is a quick and easy way to go live. Start sending content and YouTube will automatically start and stop the stream for you at the right time.
  • Option 2: "Events" gives you greater control of the live stream. You can preview before you go live, you have backup redundancy streams, and you can start and stop the stream when you want to.
  • You have the option to take a picture and use it as the cover of your live video.
  • Now you are ready to record.
  • Once you’re complete, the live broadcast video will automatically be added to your playlist; privacy options do apply to these as well.

A Touchdown With Itcosmetics Confidence In A Compact SPF 50+

Itcosmetics Confidence In A Compact SPF 50+ review by Barbies Beauty Bits

Well, today is the super big game day and what a great way to “kick off” this super day than with some super great makeup, by Itcosmetics!

Itcosmetics is my favorite team, so to speak when it comes to foundation and coverage. Developed with plastic surgeons, not only does it provide an incredible coverage it is also great at “tackling” some of your skincare issues!

And their new Itcosmetics Confidence in a Compact SPF 50+  is no different, it is truly a foundation game changer. It is the first ever solid skincare serum, infused with full coverage and SPF 50.  The groundbreaking serum technology is combined with an anti-aging hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, squalane, antioxidants and a super ceramide cream that can transform your complexion, the way Itcosmetics makeup does!

The Great Players
There are many different components that make up this compact! It serves as…
  • An anti-aging serum that has helped with improving my skin texture
  • Full coverage foundation that helps to even out your skin tone
  • An SPF 50
  • And while it is a compact, it has an airtight lid protector, so the makeup does not get all over the mirror or the sponge.  I like that you can keep the sponge separate from the foundation itself, helping it to stay fresher and cleaner, longer.

The Line Up
The Itcosmetics Confidence in a Compact is perfect for all skin types, not only does it apply smoothly, but it also helps boost your skin’s natural regenerative cycle. Per the Itcosmetics website, the proprietary Anti-Aging Armour Regenerative Concentrate™ in the serum foundation is activated upon contact to immerse your skin's moisture, restores visible radiance, helps reduce the look of pores, discoloration, lines and wrinkles, and improving the look of firmness.

How To Put Your Game Face On
For an “Extra Point” this compact comes with a sponge that you can use, while it sure is a kicker, I prefer to use my Itcosmetics Heavenly Skin™ Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush, for my makeup score! Simply swirl the brush into the solid foundation and buff onto your face for the winning point! The formula transforms into an ultra-lightweight serum foundation for a mess-free, weightless coverage that is not heavy on the skin! I also noticed that it gave my skin a dewy appearance as well, which is a plus as I am not a fan of a matte product!

The Team Colors
As will all Itcosmetics products, they have a color for any skin.  There are seven team colors to choose from!
  • Fair (Porcelain)
  • Light (Fair-Light)
  • Medium (Light-Medium)
  • Medium-Tan (Warm Medium)
  • Tan (Rich Medium)
  • Rich (Deep Tan)
  • Deep (Rich-Tan)

Just like the super game that for the first time went into overtime, Itcosmetics has done something for the first time as well.  Itcosmetics is known for their makeup, and while tons of us have wanted a skincare cream, it was a while before they developed one.  It took them seven years to develop this product I'm about to share with you.  Itcosmetics believes that great skin starts with confidence and that is why they named this SUPER cream, Confidence in a Cream™.

 Itcosmetics Confidence in a Cream review by barbies beauty bits

Itcosmetics Confidence in a Cream™ is a quick-absorbing cream that transforms your skin with each application by boosting your skins natural regenerative cycle giving you a more supple, healthier, younger-looking appearance.

This  cream also helps to...
  • Moisturizes the skin
  • Give your complextion a smoother texture
  • Enhance firmness
  • Reduces the look of pores and discoloration

The Key Ingredients
Ingredients are important when it comes to skincare if you want the best results. And this product has been impressive so far for me.

The Confidence in a cream contains…
  • Super ceramide complex
  • Collagen
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Rich in antioxidants
  • Colloidal Oatmeal
  • Peptide Infused
  • AND You can use this cream to help your makeup to last longer!
So, there you have it beauties, my way of showing my Super Team Spirit, with some super great products by Itcosmetics!

Top 10 Ways To Pamper Yourself On Valentine's Day

Top 10 Ways To Pamper Yourself On Valentine's Day By Barbie's Beauty Bits.
Valentine’s Day offers the perfect excuse for a little pampering. Whether you are single or have a significant other, you have no reason to be bummed out on Valentine’s Day. A little pampering will contribute to improving your mood, motivating you and helping to avoid burnout, so what are you waiting for?

There are so many ways to treat yourself, and I am here to share my top 10 Ways to pamper yourself on Valentine's Day.

Love Is In The Hair
What girl doesn't LOVE getting her hair done? Therefore, I always make a hair appointment on Valentine’s Day at my favorite salon Dupres Salon and Day Spa.  This is an excellent way to look HAIRtastic on V-Day, whether for yourself, to impress your sweetie or if Valentines is a fun girl’s night out! Many salons have specials on this day, so check with yours to see what they have!

A Spa Day
I’m a big proponent of having some me time.  We all like to feel like a princess, so why not treat yourself to a Me Day! So, grab your favorite fleece robe and slippers, like this cute set from Adore Me and enjoy a day of pampering with quality makeup, a manicure, and pedicure and let’s not forget about skincare ladies!  Speaking about skincare that leads me to my next way to spoil yourself…

Show Your Skin Some TLC
Properly exfoliating your skin is a must if you want healthy, glowing skin.  As we get older, the process of cell regeneration slows down. Therefore, the body is slower at shedding dead skin cells and generating new ones. Proper exfoliation removes the old skin and uncovers the new beautiful you below the surface! So, if you have wanted to indulge in some great skincare products, go and splurge.  A company that I recommend if you want to show your skin some TLC is Michael Todd Beauty and their Soniclear.

Wine A Bit, You'll Feel Better
You noticed I said WINE not WHINE.  No need to cry on Valentine’s Day.  Instead get with the girls and enjoy a wine tasting! Each of you can bring a bottle of wine and celebrate your loving friendship.  My favorite place for wine is Trader Joe’s, as they have an incredible selection of wine for a fantastic price.

Don’t Forget The Chocolate
As Forest Gump, would say “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.” Or maybe in this case you do since you will be buying the chocolate.  And, chocolate goes great with wine, so you can bring this to your wine tasting or save it for yourself, don’t worry we won’t tell if you do!

Get Your Beauty Sleep
Oh, how do we all wish we could be sleeping beauty at one time.  But, the importance of having a good night sleep affects us both mentally and physically, so why not sleep a little more on this day.

Another element of getting a good night sleep is wearing something comfortable! And Adore Me has some great items made for lounging and sleeping.

Snuggle Up With A Great Movie
For this, snuggle up in your comfy Pj's and can grab your man or your cat and watch a FUNNY movie. Laughing can have an incredible effect on your well-being, so make sure that you are laughing on Valentine’s Day! And Don't Forget The Popcorn!

Treat Yourself To A New Bra And Pantie Set
Now some of you may be thinking, what?? How is this pampering if I am single?  But the truth for me there’s nothing like a matching bra and pantie set to make me feel amazing.   It’s the kind of thing we don’t treat ourselves too often enough, but knowing you’re wearing something pretty underneath your clothes can really make you feel great about yourself.

These gorgeous sets can be purchased at such reasonable price too, this is why I like to do all of my shopping at Adore Me.
  • 1 set for $19.95 
  • 2 sets for $49.95 
  • 3 sets for $79.95

From demure push-ups to seamless strapless bras, you’ll want their bras & panties to be the foundation to every one of your outfits, Valentines or not, I know I sure do!

Ladies, if you want to look beautiful, you need to feel beautiful.   It is no secret that beauty is more than what is on the outside.  My grandma always used to say,  “If you  don’t feel good about yourself you won’t look good.”  And I agree with her! Beauty is more than our physical appearance; it is a state mind! There are many great things that we all can be doing, not just on Valentine's Day that will help us to look and feel beautiful from the inside out.

Until next time!
