3 More Must-Watch YouTube Beauty Vloggers

I have a confession to make: I am one of those people that loves tutorials. Whether it’s a makeup how-to or a DIY project, I can’t get enough… and I know many of you feel the same.

As you probably know, one of the best tutorial sources on the web is YouTube’s How To & Style section, thanks to the “beauty experts” that reside there. We’ve covered our 5 favorite YouTube beauty vloggers in the past, but today I wanted to share 3 more amazing YouTube beauty vloggers that you need to check out.

Each of these guys and gals has such awesome ways of making your appearance (as well as your life) more beautiful – I hope you enjoy their videos. Check them out below!

1. Goss Makeup Artist (gossmakeupartist)

If you like short and honest makeup videos, then GossMakeupArtist is the man to watch! He’s one of my favorite makeup vloggers to date; I always learn something new from him. (It’s no surprise his videos are so good – he’s been a makeup artist for around fifteen years!)

His videos are more about breaking down the misconceptions of makeup and showing his audience simple makeup tips and tricks that the pros use (and that you don’t need to have a makeup team to look amazing).

Some of his more popular videos are How to Conceal Under Eye Bags, Kim Kardashian and the Magic Line, and a personal favorite, The Top 5 Foundations You Must Own. Check him out if you are looking for some awesome makeup tricks described in a lovely British accent!

2. Bubz Beauty (bubzbeauty)

BubzBeauty was the first channel I ever subscribed to on YouTube. Once you see her channel, you will subscribe too; it’s absolutely impossible not to fall in love with her videos.

Bubz’s videos are not only for your physical appearance but also for the inner beauty; after all, you need both to be truly beautiful, right?

Some of her videos for your inner beauty include how to deal with negative people and how to get over a breakup – pretty unheard of for a YouTube beauty guru, but such a refreshing change! On the other hand, she also has beauty videos like how to do a simple bohemian hairstyle, and her monthly beauty favorites roundup is always popular.

I highly recommend watching her videos if you are looking for a quick pick-me-up or just some cute and fun ways to jazz up your look. Interestingly enough she has a slight Irish accent, anyone noticing a trend here?

3. Pixiwoo (pixiwoo)

And for the last of my favorite beauty vloggers (more like favorite European beauty vloggers), there’s Sam and Nic, the two sisters of Pixiwoo!

This sister team is a true powerhouse: They do everything from celebrity looks (How to get Adele’s Grammy look, for example) to foundation guides. (I love the Chanel foundation guide video, there is also one on the best drugstore brands!) Funny enough, their most popular video is how to do drag makeup (which turns out fabulous, by the way).

They speak in a laid back and conversational tone, while showing viewers how to get that perfect look, step by step. (I died over the Kristen Stewart W Magazine tutorial, flawless!) They do a lot of viewer requests, so if you want to know how a certain celebrity does their makeup, let them know and they may cover it next!

What do you think?

Now I want to hear from you – do you have any favorite beauty masters we haven’t mentioned on CF yet? Have you heard of these beauty vloggers before? Which of their videos would you recommend to CF readers? Let us know in the comments!

    I’m so glad you featured bubzbeauty. Both bubzbeauty and MichellePhan are the reason I got into makeup, and it makes me incredibly happy to see them featured on CF.

    You should also check out Michelle’s sister-in-law, Promise (youtube: dope2111). Her makeup transformations are incredibly amazing.

    while I love pixiwoo and their videos (I really, realy do) there’s just nothing out there that compares to the genuis of Lisa Eldridge ( Her tutorials are super helpful and so chic and fashion forward. I check her website daily to make sure I don’t miss anything. She really is that good, check her out :)

    MichellePhan is also great! She’s very popular though on YouTube, I wanted to do some less unheard of beauty YouTubers. I’ve seen some of Promise’s videos, they are quite entertaining! I love Bubz so much, she’s so adorable. I want her puppies, have you seen her new poodle? I just about melt it’s so ridiculously cute.

    February 21st, 2012 at 11:23 am

    I absolutely LOVE pixiwoo, they’re videos are addicting to watch. I’ll third Lisa Eldridge, she has really great lighting, uses a wide variety of make up brands, from high to low, and knows her stuff!

    I totally recommend Lisa Eldridge’s channel!

    February 21st, 2012 at 11:52 am

    I am subscribed to all the beauty gurus you mentioned, I especially love Goss and the Pixiwoo sisters, but like many people in the comments are saying: definitely check out Lisa Eldridge!

    I like Klaire de Lys, she does some very good special effects makeup. :)

    February 21st, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    I know of the Pixiwoo sisters, but the one I follow is pixi2woo: their friend Tanya Burr. She is fabulous, her videos are amazing, and she has the sweetest personality. I believe she is dating Sam and Nic’s brother. I love her so much!

    Just FYI, it’s cultural appropriation to call anyone a guru unless you’re referring to someone of a Hindu and/or Indian background. If you don’t know what cultural appropriation is, you can look it up. In the meantime, I suggest that you replace “guru” with “expert” or another word with similar meaning.

    I think it’s sad that you didn’t mention Klaire De Lys or Lisa Eldridge.
    Lisa’s videos are truly the most professional and useful videos on YouTube, and Klaire’s are the most artistic ones!
    Their videos are straight to the point and show proper technique.
    Klaire only uses cheaper brands that do not test on animals.
    Lisa has been in make-up business for years, she has worked on so many celebrities and she has also worked for many famous cosmetics houses!

    February 21st, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    These artists are ones that I personally subscribe to and might not be as popular or well-known as other YouTubers like Klaire De Lys or Lisa Eldridge. I am sure both of them are fantastic even though I did not mention them in this post.

    what about KANDEE JOHNSON?! I love her and she is so much more than makeup, with nail, accessory, and clothing tutorials. She has a very unique sense of style and is just so gosh darn nice and inspirational. She makes me so happy when I’m down, definitately one of the best makeup artists on youtube now :) <3

    February 21st, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    Thanks for all the suggestions, guys! Definitely some new ones that we’ll have to check out!

    Cristy – We know what cultural appropriation is, and while we do see your point, we didn’t originate the term “YouTube Beauty Gurus”; it’s the most popular way to refer to these makeup YouTubers. (It’s even widely used enough that a popular message board dedicated to discussing these girls is called Guru Gossip.) Definitely don’t want to offend anyone, however I’m not sure how we can re-phrase this to make it more PC while still getting the point across.

  28. 28
    February 21st, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    Lisa Eldridge. Something for everyone.

  29. 29
    February 21st, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    I’d like to suggest emilynoel83. Her makeup tutorials are nice, but she reviews EVERYTHING. Especially focusing on drugstore makeup for those of us college girls with a slimmer budget! I definitely recommend her, she’s fun to watch and so adorable!

    Thanks for this post, I go to Youtube to learn how to do just about everything.

    I am /obsessed/ with Bubz – she’s inspired me for years! I enjoy watching her follow her dreams and encourage other people to follow theirs.

  32. 32
    February 21st, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Love bubzbeauty! Gurus with short and easy videos are easier to watch.

  33. 33
    February 21st, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Wow, I just spent well over an hour watching Goss’s videos! I am a fan! I love his positivity and acceptance of all face shapes, eye shapes, etc. I’ve been following bubzbeauty for years, I love her.

  34. 34
    February 21st, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    I remember the first beauty video I watched on YT was Michelle Phan’s Lady Gaga video…. and after that, I was hooked into the YT beauty community! I love all of your picks! I’ve heard of Goss Makeup Artist before but I’ve never seen any of his videos, but I’ll be sure to check it out now. His tutorials look amazing!

    I definitely agree with everyone here, Lisa Eldridge is my personal favorite. I also love Tanya Burr of Pixi2Woo (pretty sure she is Sam and Nic’s brother’s girlfriend), FleurDeForce, Carly Cristman, Miss Glamorazzi and BeautyCrush.

  35. 35
    February 21st, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    Fleurdeforce is the best.

    February 21st, 2012 at 9:18 pm

    I LOVE Bubz. She’s so sweet and has both awesome makeup and hair looks. PLus her makeup brushes are all awesome.

    My all time favorite Youtube Beauty Guru is fashionista804. Her tutorials are all over the board, from classic neutral looks to crazy colors. Girl knows how to do makeup. Plus, her Holy Grail of blending eyeshadow color from MAC has turned into mine as well. (Soft Brown, if you were wondering).

  37. 37
    February 21st, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    So far I’ve just watched Goss, and what a charming man! Usually I don’t like a lot of makeup tutorials because they seem a little clunky and slow, but he seems lovely!

    As for the “Guru” cultural appropriation thing, @Christy, I’m Indian and Hindu and spiritual and I’m not offended by the use of the term at all.
    It’s the English language, what word hasn’t been “culturally appropriated?” So it strays from its cultural roots and it’s used in hyperbole, but it’s just how language evolves.
    You should hear some English words and how they’re used in Hindi, you’d get a kick out of it!

  38. 38
    February 21st, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    I agree Dee. Kandee Johnson is another great youtube makeup artist.

    February 21st, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    @Zephyr: I understand that, but just because it’s popular doesn’t mean it’s right. That would be like saying that it’s okay to use any and all racial slurs/derogatory terms simply because you didn’t invent them and because they’re commonly used. I don’t see how “expert” is any less effective than “guru” in communicating your point that these makeup guides are well-versed in makeup usage.

    @Shmee: I’m glad that the appropriation of such words doesn’t offend you, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s still wrong for white people to do and say certain things that might offend certain minority groups. I know that for me, as a Chinese American, I would be offended by a number of things that non-Chinese people, especially white people (because they are the dominant population in the US), assume, say, or do with regard to the Chinese, regardless of their intentions.

    White people have the privilege of not having to care how they make us feel, and many of them tend to explain why they’re innocent and didn’t mean badly instead of apologizing and trying to fix the problem. I don’t know how else to explain all of this to anyone who might be reading my comments, but I hope I have gotten through somehow. If not, well, it’s not the job of minorities to educate the dominant party/parties on these kinds of issues.

    February 21st, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    First of all, great post, Kendra! Love a good tutorial!
    I’d say there’s a substantial difference between cultural appropriation, which has a negative connotation, and learning from another culture. Adopting the word “guru” to describe makeup experts doesn’t really have any malicious intent, and as far as I can tell, follows the definition of a guru as “one who is regarded as having great knowledge, wisdom, and authority in a certain area, and who uses it to guide others.”
    These days, we’re more exposed to other cultures, and there’s bound to be some exchange between them. Culture is meant to be celebrated and shared, and I think it’d be wrong to claim rigid boundaries or ownership. For instance, is it wrong for people in other countries to use American English slang words like “okay”? Previous obstacles to worldwide communication are shrinking, and it’s inevitable that sharing and borrowing between cultures will occur.
    Also, I’m Taiwanese American, but I find your blanket description of all Caucasians as privileged and callous towards other cultures to be rather offensive. I know Caucasians who are genuinely interested in and respectful of my culture, and I also know minorities who display extreme bigotry against other ethnic groups. There will always be a few bad eggs in any group, but they don’t define the group as a whole.

    I absolutely love Rachel or Icallitambrosia on youtube. She does a bunch of beauty videos but also does other types of videos as well. She is gorgeous and is just a normal college gal who has incredible makeup skills!

  43. 43
    February 22nd, 2012 at 12:52 am

    Shannon, I couldn’t have said it better myself. I think people are getting a little too offended over nothing…

    Anyway, my favorite makeup guru is emilynoel83. I’m so glad someone else mentioned her. Her reviews are so good, and she focuses on tons of different things! She’s fun, but still remains professional to some degree. I also like makeupgeek because she seems really sweet.

    I don’t consider her a “guru” in makeup but I love ciaoobelllaxo’s videos a lot. She’s cute and fun, but also shows a lot of her real personality in videos. Sometimes I feel like most of the popular young gurus put on this fake act to make their lives seem more perfect and glamorous than they really are…

    February 22nd, 2012 at 12:57 am

    @ Christy:

    not trying to step on toes here, but your “white people” comment was highly offensive, rude, and judgemental. Not only are you making a blanket statement about all whites, but who said any of us were white? why jump to that conclusion? When discuss respecting other cultures you should practice what you preach.

    Anyway, back on topic!

    I really like Bubzbeauty! I was so happy to see she was mentioned!

  45. 45
    February 22nd, 2012 at 3:19 am

    @Cristy does have a point. The article could have been called ‘ 3 more must watched Youtube beauty vloggers’. White people do have a tendency to hijack other peoples culture, without any regard for how others ( minorities might feel). That fact has been proven throughout history.
    But, Shannon also has a point Cristy. I’m sure there was no intention to offend anyone. It’s important that we as ” minorities” not take everything so personally.
    Some people are ignorant but I doubt Shannon, Kendra or anyone at Collegefashion are ignorant. Sometimes we just have to except things for what the are: JUST WORDS, NOTHING MORE AND NOTHING LESS.

    Shannon: culture is to shared and celebrated but that doesn’t mean that there can’t be boundaries the should be respected.

    Open any dictionary. “Guru” has more than one definition.

  47. 47
    February 22nd, 2012 at 11:46 am

    Cristy – You’re right, popular usage is never an excuse for ignorance/racism; I completely agree with you on that. However, I don’t think the word “guru” is anywhere near equivalent to a racial slur in connotation or intent, so I’m not sure why you took it there.

    My original comment was meant to point out that A. We did not mean any harm by our use of “guru” (nor had we ever heard that the term was offensive before you commented), and B. We may have used the term on two posts out of thousands (which we’re happy to change), however if you really want the usage of this term to stop, I hope you will bring it up with the people who are really using it on a regular basis, naming popular websites with it, etc.

    Anyway, College Fashion is a positive place and I want to make sure all of our readers feel accepted here. Therefore, I’m happy to change the the post(s) to remove the uses of “guru”. Regardless of the arguments over whether the word is acceptable to use or not, if it offends someone this much, we’ll change it – we don’t want anyone to feel bad when reading our site.

    February 22nd, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    “VLOG”…ugh…that word is so hard to say. There is nothing wrong with “guru”! Look it up in the dictionary! Good grief! >.<

    February 22nd, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    I love how this whole conversation has become anti-white people.

  51. 51
    February 22nd, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Conversations about difficult, controversial issues like this wouldn’t have to be so long if the offender could realize they were wrong, apologize for and correct their mistakes, and avoid making those kinds of mistakes in the future. If a person of color is trying that hard to explain why they’re that bothered by something, don’t tell them to calm down or look up a definition, because chances are that they know it all too well. And, yes, I could consult the Oxford English Dictionary, but guess who decides the words and definitions in there, and in other respected dictionaries? The same white people who hold the power in the society I am trying to educate for the better even though I shouldn’t have to justify my upset and experiences as a minority in America.

  52. 52
    February 22nd, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    To the original blogger, thank you for understanding and accommodating my request; I appreciate that at least one person here got what I was trying to communicate.

  53. 53
    February 22nd, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Hahaha. There is nothing offensive about using the word. Get a grip. I’m African American and even though “guru” has nothing to do with my race or religion, I think it’s kind of melodramatic to get upset about something so small in comparison to what people say and misconceive about my race on a daily basis. There’s hardly anything about black women as it relates to fashion. We’re either left out or being disparaged. I’m not complaining, I’m just saying to you that it could be MUCH worse. Heck, this comment probably won’t even get posted by the moderators. Typical.
    Besides, “guru” here is used in a positive light. It’s been adapted into a colloquial way of speaking like SO many other words. Way to make something out of nothing. So embarrassing for you.

  54. 54
    February 23rd, 2012 at 1:01 am

    @Christy – If you want others to apologize for the comments that offended you then why are you so opposed to apologizing for your offensive comments about ‘white people’. It’s comments like the ones that you have made that segregate the population. If you keep going through your life with an ‘us’ and ‘them’ mentality your going to constantly feel discriminated against.

  55. 55
    February 23rd, 2012 at 1:08 am

    @Camille: I’m sorry to hear that black women are often left out of fashion discussions, but this isn’t a contest where we can definitively say that one minority group’s struggles are worse than another’s. If anything questionable about black, Hispanic, Native American, or Asian people were posted on this site, I still would have requested for it to be edited out.

    Going by that, I should also be okay with it when other people tell me I must be good at math, and should even feel flattered they think so, because that’s a positive stereotype about Asian Americans. But the “model minority” myth is damaging to many Asian Americans who may not be good at it, and who could even view themselves negatively because they can’t fulfill the expectation that society tends to hold them to. Sure, that might not seem as bad as the struggles that other racial minorities go through, but that doesn’t mean I should just stay silent about something that has impacted me and my community, and I won’t remain passive about issues that affect other minorities either.

  56. 56
    February 23rd, 2012 at 1:19 am

    Apparently, most people here do not realize that the US runs on a system of institutionalized racism. If you don’t know what that is, the Wiki page is a good starting point: Also, please stop derailing the conversation. (Not because I think anyone here is dumb; the link is just titled that way).

    I do not have a “me vs. them” mentality; it’s white people who created it in the first place. Look up the Chinese Exclusion Act, Vincent Chin’s murder, Danny Chen’s death, and how recently the Chinese Exclusion Act was lifted. They were all racially motivated. There were laws passed to keep my ancestors out of this country. To this day, Asian Americans still have to deal with people, many of them white, who ask them where they’re from, how their English is so good, if they can speak another language, and go “ni hao” and “ching chong” because they assume Asian-looking people must be foreigners. I myself have experienced most of the examples I just listed, mostly because of white people. So, no, don’t tell me I’m complaining for no reason and embarrassing myself, or that I’m the reason why this society is the way it is.

  57. 57
    February 23rd, 2012 at 1:44 am

    @Cristy: Girl, you are seriously racist. You obviously dislike “white people”. Making those sort of statements is going to seriously put people off and not listen to what you have to say.

    And for the record, the Oxford English Dictionary is a historical and complete guide to the English language (spoken by ALL races) not just “white people”. You have some anger issues.

    I’ll keep enjoying the awesome beauty GURUs’ videos.

  58. 58
    February 23rd, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    I think that we CAN say that the struggles of African Americans in this country are MUCH WORSE, JUST SO MUCH WORSE, than what Asians are facing. We both have terrible histories with the United States that are similar and tragic, but the CURRENT state of African Americans versus the CURRENT state of Asian Americans in this country is SOOOOO different.
    Wow, people assume you should be smart. That must be SO hard. Try having to grow up in a school system that constantly thinks you’re stupid, doesn’t challenge you, doesn’t believe in you, etc. The education system and political system in this country has screwed up African Americans so badly and will continue to do so. It’s a trans-generational issue with is. Slavery has RUINED so many lives–lives that haven’t even come into this world yet. The same cannot be said for Asians.
    Try growing up in an America where people think your skin is dirty, your nose is too wide, your closest ancestor is an ape, you’ll never graduate college, people deem you ugly, you’re classless, you speak in an unintelligent manner, and then when you DON’T live up to these subpar standards and go beyond them, you’re automatically acting “white.” There are hardly any positive stereotypes about African Americans except that we are good at sports, and even that stems from the fact that we are only physically intelligent rather than mentally. And then when we talk about it, we’re considered angry and have a chip on our shoulder, blah blah blah as if we should just shut up and forget about it.

    I mean, I’m so sorry to go on this rant and tarnish this post with such a sensitive subject but Cristy is so wrong here. You have no idea what the black struggle is like and that’s the only reason why you think Asian American struggles compare. THEY DON’T EVEN COME CLOSE. You will never know what it’s like to walk around this world as a black person. It’s an everyday struggle. EVERY DAY.

    And all this over the use of the word “guru” HA!
    Fashion magazines regularly make snide comments about black people, and one even went as far as to call us the the N-word.

    Man, shut up. You are not wrong in your opinion, but it doesn’t belong here. It just doesn’t.

  59. 59
    February 23rd, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    I have throughly enjoyed reading these comments. Who would have thought a post on the youtube beauty community would spur this much debate about race? But, honestly, I think any discussions about race are insightful. Regardless of how misguided one party things the other is, learning about people’s feelings on race is really helpful in understanding racial relationships. It’s certainly much better than suppressing those feelings and pretending as though we live in a “post-racial” era, which is obviously a fiction.

    Personally, I could careless what a person’s skin color is, but unfortunately most people haven’t gotten there. We now have a different kind of racism, too. Before people spoke openly about racism, then we had a time when it was “politically incorrect” to say anything that could possibly be construed as racist, so people suppressed the racism and by doing so racism didn’t go away, instead it grew. Now if someone “plays the race card” everyone gets upset; most people are much happier pretending racism does’t exist and when a person points racisms out, it disrupts people’s peace… But that’s exactly what we should be doing. Stop pretending racism is gone, and deal with racism and stereotypes head on.

    I had never heard anyone be offended by the term “guru” in this context, and I am sure no one at CF meant any disrespect by it. However, I’m actually really glad Christy pointed out how it could be offensive (and I’m also glad she made comments on her feelings about “white people” because though I agree they are racist – racism won’t go away unless we say those things to other people and hopefully see how crazy it is to feel a certain way about an entire race made up of billions of people worldwide).

    I think we need to return to holding open discussions about matters regarding race, so that hopefully one day we can learn to judge people by the “content of their character and not the color of their skin.”

    ANYWAY, I love youtube beauty videos. But I REALLY love fashion videos! You should do a post on “must watch youtube fashion vloggers.” I would love to discover new people with great fashion on youtube! Thanks for this post!

    I’m sorry, but Cristy, you are insane. You are ruining everyone’s day by going off on a racist rant. This is a beauty and fashion blog. Leave your bigoted, self-righteous remarks to yourself–or at the very least, a history class.

    You really think this is the time and place to talk about institutionalized racism? You must really have too much free time. I have some weird feeling that you are secretly the angry girl who lives in my apartment complex with the “GO AWAY” doormat.

    Why do discussion boards/comment forums always get like this? Something as innocent as eyeshadow gets turned into a discussion about racial segregation and genocide. Go troll somewhere else! Or write in a diary. You are killing with your negativity.

    Jenna, you said it best:

    “Man, shut up. You are not wrong in your opinion, but it doesn’t belong here. It just doesn’t.”

    Cristy: So, you are Chinese, and you are offended by the word “guru”. Wow. That makes no sense.

    I am “white”. So every problem you have is my fault, right? Well I hate to break it to you Cristy, but I’m also Jewish. So, is this the time and the place for me to launch into a dramatic rant about the holocaust? Or how I’m a minority? Blah blah blah. No. It isn’t.

    I agree with other posters. You are crazy. Go away and be angry somewhere else. Now back to fashion! ;)

    Er, um…Cristy doesn’t seem to know about the atrocities that the Chinese government has committed against others, or how oppressive they are to their own people, etc. No one listen. This is a happy blog! Happy time!! :D

    Cristy darling, don’t you realize that everyone is discriminated against?
    I’m white, and ironically, a model.

    I’ve had complete strangers call me fat, call me skinny, stare at me, ask what race I am, ask why I’m so pale, and tell me I have a big nose. It’s how people are.

    It sucks. But get over it.

    Hello everyone, I just wanted to take a minute and respond to all of the comments in one swoop!
    First off, I never meant to offend anyone by using the term “guru”. I don’t consider myself ignorant, but I believed in this positive context it would not be taken as offensive. I do apologize to anyone who felt that this was inappropriate.
    As well, I do appreciate everyone’s comments on the matter, whether they were positive or negative. However, I think it is important to keep everything in a positive light and to respect each others opinions, no matter what they are.
    Thank you to everyone for sharing their own favorite beauty masters and for contributing to the discussion.
    I will also think about doing a post in the future about must watch fashion vloggers (Thank you Alicia!). If you have any other requests, then please let me know either through my Twitter, kendraelise, or through this discussion board. Thanks again my lovely ladies!

    Have you ever watched any Lisa Eldridge make up videos? She is absolutely phenomenal and she’s always working with big name clients for the covers of Elle, Vogue, etc. Anyways my favorite videos of hers include the history of cosmetics, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Marilyn Monroe. She does quite an in depth explanation about how the look comes together and why each and every little thing is so important.

    anyways, go check her out!!

    I love Goss! I could never get into Pixiwoo, though, because they’re a bit boring. I really love emilynoel83, though, especially because she’s so good at talking about makeup and because she uses drugstore products. Sineady Cady from the makeup chair is also pretty good.

    2 great up and coming beauty vloggers I love to watch:

    Rachel Talbott (former singer and Disney actress) is GREAT at beautly vlogging…you can find her under checkinthemirror on YT.

    Also, young…but pretty amazing tips and great personality is Megan of meganheartsmakeup on YT.

    I am 40, and I get tips all the time from these two ladies. LOVE them and they seem a bit less commercialized than the Fowler sisters who seem to have had everything handed to them on a silver platter. I like the Fowlers channels, but sometimes get a little turned off by what seems to be an assumption that everyone can afford to have a $1,000 makeup brush collection.

    beautysplurge on YT.
