Best Beauty Youtube Channels 600x899 I remember when I became addicted to watching beauty videos on Youtube. Over the holidays last year, I was bored and browsing the internet. Normally when one of the blogs I read posts a video, I mark it to ‘read later’ because there’s more of a time commitment with video. Well, I had nothing to do that afternoon, so I decided to go back and watch a couple of videos I’d saved. Then I fell down the rabbit hole. Once I’d started, I just kept going and going for hours.

I’m still such a newb when it comes to makeup and beauty, so I feel like I can learn a lot from the tips and tricks that these ladies share. I was discussing my addiction with a friend recently and we swapped recommendations of beauty channels that we like to watch. Here are my favorite beauty youtubers at the moment:

- Shirley B. Eniang: When I’m researching a new beauty product, I try searching for images of people with a similar skin color as mine and I don’t often find a lot of results. I love Shirley’s channel because she has darker skin like me, so I feel like I can really rely on her recommendations. Plus, she’s so gorgeous!

- Essie Button: I think Estée has an awesome personality- she’s fun, engaging and approachable. Watching her videos kind of feels like I’m getting beauty recommendations from a friend.

- Lily Pebbles: Another British beauty blogger that I like. I believe Lily focuses on more affordable makeup which is great because I know that the products she recommends won’t be super, crazy-expensive.

- Lisa Aldridge: Lisa is a well-known makeup artist and it’s clear that she has tons of experience. She always seems so classy and elegant and I really enjoy watching her videos.

And here are a few other channels that I’ve checked out: Michelle PhanFleur de Force, Zoella, Miss Glamorazzi, Tanya Burr, Hello October, Rach Martino, and I Covet Thee. Looking at my list, I can see that I’m really into the British beauty bloggers. What can I say, I love a British accent! Are there any American beauty youtube channels that you think I should watch?

Tell me: Do you watch beauty videos? Who’s your favorite?

    I’m really not much of a YouTuber, to be honest, but years ago I was all about vintage and I loved LisaFreemontStreet and Candice Deville’s Super Kawaii Mama (she does great outfit posts on her blog, too!). I remember their hair tutorials specifically – Candice taught me how to do a beehive!
