What could YouTube do for you? Well, lots of things! For one, help you waste a lot of time! But if you actually want to learn some things or just get some inspiration, YouTube can be a great tool. Here are some of my favorite beauty guru’s on YouTube. A beauty guru is someone who posts videos, often about makeup, hair, style etc. Some guru’s actually impart some really great tips and others just give good ideas for new makeup looks. Here are some of my favorites:
GossMakeupArtist: Also known as Wayne Goss, imparts lots of awesome tips and product reviews. I am not such a fan of his makeup looks since it kind of wierds me out to see makeup on a man’s face but in regards to everything else, he really knows his stuff!
Lisaeldridgedotcom: Also known as Lisa Eldridge, is a world famous make up artist. She has a website Lisaeldridge.com which showcases her latest work and videos and also an extensive portfolio. Her videos are very crisp and clear and feature lots of new makeup trends and ideas. She also has some great instructional videos. One of my favorites is http://goo.gl/B3D0M.
KandeeJohnson: Also known as Kandee Johnson is one of the most varied Beauty Guru’s that I watch. She features lots of awesome costume looks, beauty reviews, makeup looks, tips and tricks and she also has a blog that she calls her “mommy blog” that has lots of cute baby ideas and crafts. Her mommy blog is kandeeland.com and her beauty blog is kandeej.com.
MichellePhan: Also known as Michelle Phan, was actually one of the first beauty gurus I watched. She is also one of the first pioneers to make beauty tutorials get famous on youtube. Her older videos had some awesome costume videos and beautiful makeup looks, but her more recent stuff has been lots of natural looks and videos that are exclusively made for Lancome (she is their spokesperson).
Dope2111: Also known as Promise Phan, I originally discovered her as the sister in law of Michelle Phan. She almost exclusively does transformation videos which are incredible! She is great for inspiration, costume ideas or just plain entertainment!
LuxyHair: Also known as the Luxy sisters Mimi and Leyla, they are two sisters whose channel is mostly about hair (as you can tell by the name). They actually own a hair extension company and make lots of really great tutorials. They have a second channel which I enjoy as well that features things from their personal lives, outfit ideas, etc. called EverythingLuxy.
Of course there are a ton more people who have beauty channels but the above ones are my favorite for being the most talented, well edited and creative guru’s. Check them out if you’d like and I hope you enjoy seeing some of my inspiration!
