5 Beauty Youtubers You Should Follow

5 Beauty Youtubers to Follow

Hey Everyone! I unexpectedly came down with a really bad cold yesterday, so my original post for today sort of went down the drain. Instead, I’ll be sharing with you a post I’ve had in my drafts for a couple weeks now.

For years I’ve been following along with these 5 Beauty Youtubers, and I just love their channels. If you’re looking for awesome makeup and hair tutorials, makeup inspiration, and all around great on-camera personalities, all of these ladies bring that to the table and much more! I highly encourage you to give their channel a follow!

Also, before we get started I just wanted to say that due to my extremely busy work schedule and all of the things I have going on in my life right now, I will most likely only be postingย to the blog 2 times a week from this point forward, until things start settling down.

Although I would love to say that blogging is my full-time gig, unfortunately that is not yet the case, and it’s becoming insanely difficult to manage everything right now.ย I hope you all will understand, and will continue to still follow along with me. I truly appreciate each and every one of you!ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Now, onto my favorite hair/beauty Youtubers!

5. Shannon- Shaanxo

Glam Date Night Makeover! โ™ก Pamper Routine; Skin, Makeup & Hair!
Watch this video on YouTube.

Shannon is a gorgeous New Zealander with such an amazing, bubbly personality. I started following along with her several years ago because she has such a fun, down-to-earth personality, and she always gives 100% honest feedback on hair and beauty products. I also really like the fact that she takes the time to go through each and every step in her videos, so that you fully understand how to create a certain makeup look.

4. Missy Sue

Watch this video on YouTube.

Missy Sue is hands down the best hair braider on earth. Seriously. Just take a moment and look through all of her extensive videos with every braid imaginable, under the sun. Before I started watching her Youtube videos, I could literally only do a simple braid. Now thanks to her, I’ve been able to learn how to create so many cute, braided looks. She does an awesome job of carefully going through each step, and all around just seems like she is such a sweet person. If you ever want to know how to create any type of braid, Missy Sue is your girl.

3. Lauren Curtisย 

MY BEAUTY TRICKS: Massive lashes, defined brows, flawless skin!
Watch this video on YouTube.

Lauren Curtis is notably Australia’s number 1 beauty vlogger, and rightfully so. Since launching her channel in 2011, Lauren has stolen the hearts of many out there with her sweet personality and extreme makeup artistry skills. While I was initially drawn in by her makeup tutorials, I quickly realized Lauren is not just a pretty face and frequently shares inspirational advice in her videos. As someone who was bullied in school, Lauren tries to encourage other girls that it is okay to be different and look different, and I love and appreciate that so much.

2. Jaclyn Hill

Bright Eyes + Bold Lips - Makeup Look For Small / Tired Eyes | Jaclyn Hill
Watch this video on YouTube.

If you haven’t heard of Jaclyn Hill by now, you’ve probably been living under a rock. Not only is Jaclyn gorgeous, but she always keeps you laughing with her fun personality in her videos. For years now, Jaclyn has beenย my go-to girl when it comes to makeup tutorials, and she is the reason I started using makeup brushes to apply makeup. (Thanks Jaclyn!) One of the things I also really like about her channelย is the fact that she features a variety of makeup products including both high end and drugstore products.

1. ย Emily Noel- Beauty Broadcast

NEW Drugstore Makeup: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
Watch this video on YouTube.

My top beauty youtuber is the beautiful Emily Noel with Beauty Broadcast. Formerly a news broadcaster, Emily first began creating makeup tutorials, product reviews, and beauty advice videos ย as a side hobby, but after quickly gaining a huge following decided to pursue a beauty Youtube career full-time.ย As a beauty Youtuber, Emily is one-of-a-kind, and has built an extremely credible reputation in the beauty industry for offering honest feedback on products and never being afraid to say when a product isn’t worth it, which I love.

As a drugstore makeup junkie, Emily also always tries to offer her fans more economical beauty options from the higher end products out there, and frequently shares drugstore dupes. If I had to choose one favorite beauty vlogger out there, Emily Noel would definitely be it-hands down.


So there you have it- 5 amazingly gorgeous Beauty Youtubers that I encourage you to watch,ย and give them a follow if you like their feed! Are there other beauty Youtubers you love? Please share them with me and I’d love to check them out!

Thanks for stopping by!- Cara

    I love that Emily features drugstore products! I feel like there are so many out there that I don’t know which ones are great and which are duds. Plus with drugstore makeup you can’t return it, so it’s nice to know ahead of time if it’s good or bad!

    Posted 5.9.16 Reply
    • I completely agree! Plus, who can really afford to buy a $100 palette every other week- not me, that’s for sure ๐Ÿ˜‰

I find I’m rarely wanting to skip their new videos.
