Have you ever been bored with your beauty look or unsure how to wear your hair? Or have you ever wanted to find out whether a new product actually works before you buy it? If any of the former are true, or if you’re just into hair and makeup, YouTube is a great resource for both answers to your beauty questions and entertainment.

Unsure where to begin? This post highlights five of YouTube’s best and brightest stars of the beauty world: these lovely ladies will provide makeup tutorials, product reviews, and hairstyle how-tos, all in the form of vlogs. Just think of them as your super knowledgeable, beauty-conscious new friends!

* Michelle Phan (MichellePhan)

Michelle Phan on Youtube

Michelle Phan is one of YouTube’s most well-known beauty personalities. Her videos are extremely professional and perfectly edited, focusing almost exclusively on makeup. Michelle’s tips and tutorials range from basic, like a fresh, five-minute face, to specific and wild, like her Lady GaGa-inspired transformation. If you’re wondering what makeup to wear to that special event, check out Michelle’s channel–chances are she has a video on it! And she gets bonus points for her soothing voice!

Noteworthy Videos: Airplane Makeup Tutorial, Makeup for Glasses, Lady GaGa Poker Face Tutorial.

* Elle Fowler (AllThatGlitters21)

Allthatglitters21 on Youtube

Elle’s channel is very beauty-focused. She talks makeup, beauty products, and nail polish. The great thing about Elle is that the looks she features on her channel range from experimental and crazy (think rainbow and emerald eye shadow!) to neutral and classy. Her most recent video is the perfect lead-in to summer: a bonfire on the beach tutorial. Elle’s channel is full of practical, pertinent tips, perfect for any college girl.

Noteworthy Videos: Back to Class Look, Products I Regret Buying, Color Mania – Bright Rainbow Eyes.

* Samantha Maria (BeautyCrush)

BeautyCrush on Youtube

There’s only one word to describe Samantha Maria, aka Beauty Crush: adorable. From her British accent to her sweet, bubbly personality, Samantha and her videos will pull you in! Though she’s most definitely a beauty maven, her channel is very diverse in terms of content. Sam will teach you how to do your makeup like some of today’s hottest celebrities–her videos are always up to date and on-trend, usually featuring looks from music videos, but she also touches on fashion trends, hairstyles, and product reviews.

Noteworthy Videos: How To: Foundation, Contour & Highlight, Rihanna Series – ‘Hard’ Video Makeup Tutorial, Get Pretty Quick Tips.

* Imogen (FoxyLocksExtensions)

FoxyLocksExtensions on YouTube

Not surprisingly, Imogen of Foxy Locks Extensions features a plethora of hair how-tos in her YouTube vids. Imogen sells her own line of hair extensions online, so there are a variety of videos on clipping in, caring for, and styling extensions and long hair. Yearning for Blake Lively’s loose, glamourous waves? Imogen has a tutorial on getting Blake’s, as well as other celebrities’ hair and makeup looks just right. It’s not all about hair though! The FoxyLocksExtensions channel also has videos on nail care and design.

Noteworthy Videos: How To: Grow, Care, & Paint Your Nails, My Hair Care Secrets, Tips, and Products, Quick, Easy Beyonce ‘Single Ladies’ Hair Tutorial.

* Trish (BritPopPrincess)

BritPopPrincess on Youtube

Trish’s channel is more fashion-focused than those of the previous gurus on this list, but her advice is equally invaluable. She still offers archived hair and makeup tutorials, but also gives specific fashion advice and provides peeks at her adorable wardrobe. If you want some new ideas on how to put outfits together, suggestions for what to wear to events, or just want a look at some non-American fashion trends, turn to BritPopPrincess!

    Oh boy. I love some of the youtube beauty tips, but I get fed up with how shallow a lot of the girls seem. Of course, if the only way you know someone is through the makeup tips that they give, they’re bound to seem one-dimensional.

    But I love this list-I’m actually not subscribed to three of the girls on here. I definitely have entertainment for my lunch break today, haha.

    You’ve missed my favourite! JulieG713 has some great makeup and nail tutorials! She also seems to be really down-to-earth and approachable which makes her easier to watch than some of the snobby girls on youtube….

    I’m a fan of Michelle already, and I’ve watched some of Elle’s videos but the others are new to me, so I’ll have to check them out! :)

    What about panacea81 aka Lauren Luke? She’s gotten over 10 million hits on her vids and has gotten so well known that she has her own makeup line. She also comes off as very sweet and down to earth in her vids.

    What a cool post! Unlike the other girls, I don’t really watch YouTube tutorials, but I’ve always been curious. Now in case I need to watch some, I have lots of options. Thanks!

    what about Blair (juicystar07)? she is younger than any of us(17) but she is also one of the best youtube gurus too and famous too.

    I’ve been a Michelle Phan fan since last year! I was wondering when she was going to appear here on CF :)
    Great list!

    May 13th, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    Tanya Burr pixi2woo!!

    I watch her videos all the time. She’s so cute! My favorites are her Emma Watson and Ashley Olsen makeup tutorials.

    May 13th, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    Omg this was going to be my next post for College Fashion because I LOVE watching the Youtube makeup gurus. I’m obsessed with some of their videos.

    Personally, my favorites are Michelle Phan like you listed because her makeup is always creative yet chic. She actually makes makeup an art and never look what I got in my “haul” video.

    I also like the Pixiwoo sisters because they really understand makeup. They’re professional makeup artists and some of their work is just a-m-a-z-i-n-g.

    Both of the girls I just listed were featured in Nylon Magazine too! The Youtube beauty guru trend is really starting to become popular. Great post! Absolutely love it!

    One of my favorite channels is BeautyByAmy. She has really easy-going styles and great advice on make up and fashion.

  15. 15
    May 13th, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    petrilude does amazing costume makeup, as well as some practical makeup.

    May 13th, 2010 at 3:02 pm

    Bubzbeauty is my favourite! Trust me, you have to watch her videos.

    Michelle Phan taught me how to apply liquid eyeliner, so I’m thankful to her.

    May 13th, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    Hey ladies! I’m glad you’re into this post and the beauty guru trend! These are just some of my favorite beauty vloggers–not by any means a comprehensive list! I’m super excited to check out your recommendations, too! I hadn’t heard of a bunch of them, so it will be super fun to watch their videos!

  21. 21
    May 13th, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    i actually really like meganheartsmakeup
    shes a little younger (like 14, 15 i think?) but she posts looks i actually USE
    and i have the same style as her, which is a plus :)

  22. 22
    May 13th, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    I’ve watched Michelle a few times, but my ultimate favorite is Pursebuzz!

  23. 23
    May 13th, 2010 at 4:24 pm

    I read an article that the girl who is juicystar07 is now home schooled bc she makes so much money from endorsements that her vlog and haul videos are a full time job for her. She is pulling in 5 figures from her haul videos. I really like her sister Elle though. She did a beauty review of the new OPI gel nail treatments. SO helpful because I had heard about the product for so long but none of my friends had tried it yet. I am excited to check out the others!

  24. 24
    May 13th, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    I love EmilyNoel83! she is awesome and down to earth and the products in her video are so affordable! She is a morning new anchor too and she uses her drugstore products for her on camera looks too which is refreshing. Its nice to know I can look camera ready like her without having to use very expensive products.

    I recommend checking her out!

  25. 25
    May 13th, 2010 at 5:00 pm

    I can’t believe noone has yet mentioned xsparkage, aka Leesha!

    She is amazing at what she does, and even though I’m not that into makeup, I watch her videos for her bubbly personality.

  26. 26
    May 13th, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    Kandee Johnson is, by far, the best make-up artist on YouTube.

  27. 27
    May 13th, 2010 at 5:30 pm

    Everyone should check out:
    1. missglamorazzi
    2. fleurdeforce
    3. ebee228

    all of them are very sweet, genuine and have great videos!

  28. 28
    May 13th, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    Don’t forget paneaca1 (Lauren Luke). She has amazing tutorials with really fun and unique looks!

  29. 29
    May 13th, 2010 at 6:03 pm

    i love love LOVE xteeener! her makeup is especially great for me since we have similarly shaped eyes (almond asian eyes with tiny lids). and whats especially great is that she uses a lot of cheaper products! and she seems much more down to earth!

    and ive only recently discovered pixiwoo. they really really know makeup, and translate that knowledge into something non-makeup artists can understand easily and use! love them too!

  30. 30
    May 13th, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    I love Michelle & Elle also! =)

    But I really love ahanhbarbie & juicystar07 & bubzbeauty! :]
    their tutorials are like, my life. (:

    xoooxoxoxo

    May 13th, 2010 at 6:22 pm

    Don’t forget Marlena from makeupgeek! I love how bubbly and positive she is. She’s not really college age, but her makeup (and few hair) tutorials are beautiful. Also, her website (makeupgeek.com) is more comprehensive with reviews, reader contributions, a store etc.

  32. 32
    May 13th, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    THANK YOU for posting this. I have been watching videos all day! My favorite is Elle because she has coloring similar to mine. Awesome post!

  33. 33
    May 13th, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    juicystar07 and meganheartsmakeup are two other amazing gurus! i also love allthatgliters21! i’ve watched all of their videos!

  34. 34
    May 13th, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    elle? seriously? if you’re reading this blog, she can’t teach you anything. very mediocre, all of her tutorials look like something a thirteen year old did. there are SO many really great gurus on youtube, i can’t believe you’d pick elle lol. try makeupgeektv, pixiwoo, makeupbytiffanyd, petrilude, ect.

  35. 35
    May 13th, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    I’m a Kandee Johnson fan myself :) You guys should check her out!

  36. 36
    May 13th, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    totally shocked you didn’t include kandee johnson.. she’s amazing. so bubbly and positive, i love her attitude. and she REALLY knows what she’s doing!

  37. 37
    May 13th, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    what about Dulce Candy? I know she’s more into fashion but I was a big fan of her make -up tutorials

  38. 38
    May 13th, 2010 at 10:39 pm

    Agree w/ everyone except Elle. SO FAKE ! Try fafinettex3 or BiancaBLovesU or even Pursebuzz .

  39. 39
    May 13th, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    Lalalina, that’s completely untrue. yes, Blair is homeschooled but it is not, i repeat, NOT because of youtube. she chose to be homeschooled before she got ‘youtube-famous’. i don’t know why she chose it; she hasn’t disclosed that information on youtube yet. the Good Morning America segment that featured her and her sister (and any articles of the like) made that part of her life out to be controversial than it actually is.
    in fact, she does way more schoolwork than anyone in an actual high school setting does. she does her regular 6-hour school day, 2 hours of required reading outside of that, plus all the time she spends on her homework. yes, even homeschoolers have homework. and you know, she’s actually graduating a year earlier than most of her friends. she’s a junior but she’s graduating this year :)

    Also, QueenBeeuty is one of my favourites. she’s a total sweetheart, and is amazing with hair tutorials.

    May 13th, 2010 at 11:20 pm

    I agree with comment #25!

    How come no one has mentioned xsparkage! I simply love her videos, she is funny. she explains things clearly and simply, her makeup tutorials go from everyday look to crazy colorful ones. I also love the fact that she does “themes”.

  41. 41
    May 13th, 2010 at 11:21 pm

    Stephanie, do not get all worked up, I was merely discussing what I had read. I was not passing judgment on those that are home schooled. I just remember that article saying she needed a more flexible schedule to keep up with her youtube activities, that’s all. She was also interviewed for the article. So I am just going by what I read.

  42. 42
    May 13th, 2010 at 11:47 pm

    @Carolanne, I like xteeener too! She gives really practical advice

  43. 43
    May 14th, 2010 at 12:54 am

    Is this a joke? You really included Lisa(Allthatglitters21) in this list? In my opinion and the opinion of many others, her and her even more annoying sister ruined the beauty community. All they do is lie to make a quick buck.

  44. 44
    May 14th, 2010 at 12:58 am

    Well I’ve heard of Elle because I’m a fan of hers but her sister Blair is even better! I have not heard of the others though

  45. 45
    May 14th, 2010 at 1:01 am

    lol “Elle” seriously? wow. I can’t stand either of the Fowler sisters they are sellouts with a capital S. All they do are paid commercials they have no talent other then being good salespeople. If you enjoy watching home shopping networks then you will enjoy them.

  46. 46
    May 14th, 2010 at 1:04 am

    Ugh I wish you had don’t more research. Elle is one of the worst people in the beauty community. She has threatened to sue people, lied about being paid….the list goes on and on.

    Just check this video out of her acting dumb on purpose

    May 14th, 2010 at 1:08 am

    uve missed the super positive influence of KANDEE JOHNSON…she’s amazing and works for TV, and she promotes diversity, and good self-image. and confidence.

    also, MakeupbyTiffanyD (tiffany) she’s amazing and features current/affordable/department store brands and looks

    PLUS… Tanya Burr (pixi2woo) she works for the british tv show, The Clothes Show and London Fashion Week. she’s friendly and bubbly and she has ‘a day in the life’ videos that are fun and very REAL.

    May 14th, 2010 at 1:12 am

    Elle is a money hungrey self centered lady who is only out to get rich quick and try and get famous. Both her and Blair have a hollywood agent and only mention products if they get a payment from the company.

    Read this article it was in the NY Times Newspaper the other day. Elle receieved a payment of $4000 from SUNLOVE tanning to give them a review.

    The NY Times confirmed all of the rumours about them. They were also in contact with a company who showed emails exchanged between their hollywood agent which basically said that they DO NOT do reviews for a product or mention a product in a tutorial UNLESS they get PAID.

    They are FAKE FAKE FAKE.

    here is a link to that newpaper article from the NY Times.

    blair has wayyyyyy more subbies then elle too because shes wayyyyy better and so much prettier then elle and actually has a fun personality!
    elle should just retire from youtube really. I think ppl are only subbed to her because shes blairs sister.

  51. 51
    May 14th, 2010 at 1:25 am

    I love MakeupbyTiffanyD! She is just so down to earth and helpful!! EmilyNoel83 is also great! So professional and has so many great beauty tips! Also, xteeener!!! So nice and down to earth! So many great beauty gurus, it’s hard to pick just one!

  52. 52
    May 14th, 2010 at 1:28 am

    One of my fav YT gurus is budgetbeautiful….i think she is newer to YT but she has amazing videos on how to save money on makeup, which is great for college gals like us!! She does videos every week about all the sales at drugstores too which is awesome!!! LINK

    http://www.youtube.com/budgetbeautiful

    Also loving xteeener as someone else mentioned! Love YT gurus…learned so much from them

  53. 53
    May 14th, 2010 at 1:36 am

    I agree with Elle from All that glitters 21, & Michelle Phan. But I think Blair from Juicy Star 07 should be on there too! I also like Chanel Blue Satin.

  54. 54
    May 14th, 2010 at 1:39 am

    I don’t know why anyone watches Elle/Blair
    It’s like supporting a sleazy telemarketer or a used car salesmen.
    All they care about is shoving products down your throat and cashing in. It was in the news that Elle and her sister each make over ten thousand dollars a month from this and that they only do tutorials and stuff if they get paid alot of money by the product sponsering them. Also, their store glitzyglam is so overpriced and a rip off. You can buy the exact same stuff elsewhere such as on Etsy for about 1/2 price.

  57. 57
    May 14th, 2010 at 4:23 am

    I love Tiffany (makeupbytiffanyd) and Mel (makeupbymel) they’re both freakin hilarious and have great tips to share!

    Xsparkage – Leesha, as well, her tutorials are really good

    I’ve recently started watching JulieG713, she is so sweet!

  58. 58

    I mostly love Michelle Phan’s video tutorials and tips because it’s really helpful. I also like Elle’s channel and her sister’s channel too, juicystar07 (Blair)

  61. 61
    May 14th, 2010 at 8:59 am

    May 14th, 2010 at 10:58 am

    All of my favourites have been mentioned, except hollyannaeree. She does excellent makeup tutorials and she isn’t snobby or irritating as some of the others are.

    I had no idea about all this Elle and Blair stuff, very interesting..

  63. 63
    May 14th, 2010 at 1:06 pm

    Everyone should read the New York Times article about Elle and Blair.
    They charge companies for reviews and tutorials! How can their reviews and opinions about products be honest if they are getting paid thousands from the company for a review?
    One company the New York Times spoke to wanted to send Blair some free products to test and review. They received an email back from Blairs Los Angeles Agent who said they would have to pay her to do that they can’t just send free products.

    I was already skeptical about both of them when they started doing commercials for toothbrushes and deoderant on their youtube channels.

    Both of them used to say before the new FTC guidelines that they have NEVER been paid. They have been lying the whole time I guess about that since the New York Times tells us the truth. Elle did that Sunlove review almost a year ago and she used to say she has never been paid. Here in this article we see that she was paid thousands for it.

    What bugs me so bad is that their viewers are mainly very young and believe and trust these girls. They have no ide its all just a huge marketing gimmick and that they have an agent and get paid 6 figures a year to do these commercials n their channels.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/06/fashion/06skin.html?pagewanted=2&hpw

    “Two of the most successful haulers are Blair and Elle Fowler, sisters from Tennessee who have a combined half-million subscribers to their two YouTube channels. Reports say Blair is 16; Elle, 21. They are represented by an agent in Los Angeles, Shelly Marchetti.

    A representative of a British accessories company, Secret Conquest, said by e-mail that Ms. Marchetti had asked that a “large reimbursement” be paid to Blair Fowler in exchange for a review. The review did not happen. The e-mail negotiations were posted on a Web site, which shows the amount was $500.

    Darian Braun, the owner of a spray tan company called SunLove, said by telephone that he had paid Elle Fowler $4,000 for a review on the understanding that the payment was meant to cover editing costs. After a dispute, he said, Ms. Fowler took down the video.

    Ms. Marchetti denied a request for an interview with the Fowlers and did not respond to a request for comment on SunLove or Secret Conquest.”

    Where is Lauren Luke????? She’s the best!!! I love her :D

  67. 67
    May 14th, 2010 at 4:21 pm

    Haha Nicole & Liza, I also wanted to do a post about youtube vloggers! I’ve loved Blair (juicystar07) but after reading the NYT article I’m not quite sure anymore. Love your list Liza!! I agree about Lauren Luke- I’m a huge fan of hers. Also, MakeupGeek is really awesome for eyeshadow tutorials. Lollipop26 is great for product reviews.

    Great Post!

  68. 68
    May 14th, 2010 at 5:18 pm

    What about JulieG713, Petrilude, xsparkage, MakeupByRisa, GiulianaMUA, pixiwoo, MakeupByTiffanyD?????

  69. 69
    May 14th, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    Kandee the makeup artist is my favorite for tutorials all of her advice has really helped me develop a solid day to day routine, she also has crazy stuff like an avatar makeup tutorial.

    May 15th, 2010 at 1:46 am

    My current favs are frmheadtotoe and ekilove! :D

    I don’t hear much about them on articles like this but they do have quite a few followers from youtube. They are both so genuine and I think they make great tutorials and reviews.

    http://www.ekilove.com/ –> Eki also does reviews on special Japanese snacks which I love! haha. :) Plus shes a crafter and makes really cute jewelry and pouches.

    http://www.frmheadtotoe.com/ –> she just did a video with a completely bare face and talked about “Bloggers with No Makeup Day” and I really like her message about beauty bloggers, makeup, and inner beauty.

    DO NOT forget about how Kandee JOhnson is either! I”m tired of people supporting her too!

    Johnson, 31, was charged with a gross misdemeanor, accused of leaving her 12-year-old son unsupervised in November in a house one deputy described as “borderline unsanitary.”

    She pled guilty after asking for money online from her fans, and was shopping and showing everyone online the whole time. A court appointed lawyer always happens if you don’t have the money and of course these gurus get paid a ton. But like i said, even if not, she could get one free, she got money from her subs, she shopped the whole time, and plead guilty. So, that’s that!

    Douglas County Sheriff’s Office
    Staff Reports

    Makeup artist Kandee Johnson, accused of leaving her 12-year-old son alone in Minden while she worked in Los Angeles, appeared in court Wednesday with her lawyer to hear a new allegation.

    Johnson, 31, has been charged additionally with contributing to her son’s “educational neglect” from Nov. 20 through Jan. 27 by permitting him to become a “habitual truant” from Carson Valley Middle School.

    According to the complaint, Johnson allowed him to fail to receive credit for the fall semester due to excessive absence.

    EricaLeigh777 is definately my favorite. She is real, sweet, honest, crazy talented, and down to earth. She also isn’t “too good” to use drugstore products which I like.

    binosusume s one of my favorites when it comes to hair. she NEVER shows her face, EVER, so you know she’s CONCENTRATING MORE ON THE TECHNIQUE ISNTEAD OF GETTING HERSELF NOTICED. She hasn’t updated in a couple months, but she has quite a few tutorials up that are very neat! If it weren’t for her I never would have learned how to do french braids!

    Reading the comments, I haven’t seen any love for my girl Sammi Marie..
    Really, the girl’s amazing.
    She doesn’t put on 5 pounds of makeup for every single product review or haul, she seems more real than many girls I’ve seen, I love her fashion sense, and she’s just the sweetest thing!:)

    What about the sisters who are Pixiwoo??…real make up artists…not little girls who copy pics in adult magazines and then are mistakenly called gurus. Make-up application is NOT a personality contest. You can have any personality you want; just don’t advocate that everyone look like a paint-by-number painting b/c the “so-called” guru is “so sweet” and “down-to-earth”. It’s about quality, girls, not quantity.

    I’m a popular beauty guru,and YES we get paid for doing reviews that we LIKE, not just to make money off of anything. People misunderstand that. We help market products and by creating a video and all the time that goes into it, OF COURSE we get paid! This is our JOB! I only talk about products that I like, and turn down the ones I don’t. People who complain about this are only ignorant and JEALOUS of us, and wish they were doing it. And yes, we are called BEAUTY GURUS. That’s the fun of it. We don’t call ourselves MAKEUP ARTISTS, we are just having fun with makeup and showing others how to use it. Hence the name BEAUTY GURU!

    I really like Ask Me Makeup with Amy B. She’s really good at explaining how to do the looks and easy to relate to. Some of the girls who are on Youtube are ritzy and seem snooty. I’m am not rich nor can I afford some of the products they use. Ask Me Makeup usually will talk about alternative products you can substitute for the expensive ones.

    Pixiewoo is BY FAR the most *high-end and professional*, meaning their work could be in Vogue. They are SO incredibly diverse, and their videos teach you how to wear the high-end runway makeup as well as more “normal” looks, and their looks work for all ages, not just the teen/college crowd. No wonder they book so many gigs all over the world, have worked with celebrities, major magazines, have their own line of brushes, have a column with the Daily Mail (huge in the UK) and have appeared on television. And they are so down to earth.

    Of course, there are other wonderful YouTube gurus, including Phan, but a lot of her popularity is based on her pretty face, her personality, the editing of the videos, her soothing voice, etc. Judging by her work as a makeup artist ALONE, she is good but nothing your average makeup fanatic with some experience in front of a mirror can’t do on her own. Another downside is that it seems her work appeals mainly to young, light skinned people (her crowd) . There are few videos dealing makeup for dry, older, wrinkled skin, black skin etc.

    My favorites of course are Pixiewoo, followed by Kandee Johnson. Her looks tend to be quite heavy, with a lot of product to achieve a result which can be done with a lot less, BUT the girl knows what she is doing and can do a lot of different looks and address different cosmetic problems.
