And I loved Lipgunk but she's been MIA for 6 months now.
Hudaheidik (The best projection a makeup artist can possess when vlogging.)
Makeupholicliz (One of the best makeup artists to walk on planet earth.)
Gossmakeupartist (He is incredibly talented.)
Eily311 (She vlogs an array of makeup tutorials that not many others vlog about.)
Panacea81 (She is one of the original makeup artists that I enjoy.)
In no particular order.
Yaz - she's a Muslim makeup artists in England, I believe, and stunningly gorgeous. She always wears the hijab in her videos, which is how you can easily tell her apart. The eyes and skin on that woman are to die for and none of the other TouTube gurus come close to comparing to her. Definitely my number 1 favorite of all time. She is sometimes criticized by other Muslim women, which makes her even more a favorite of mine. The woman has guts AND is really good at what she does.
Pursebuzz - one of the first I came across when I started watching YouTube MUAs
Pixiwoo - but they occasionally annoy me and can sometimes seem pretentious as well
Makeup Geek - to me she seems like she would be genuinely nice in person, but I could be wrong. Not the 'plaster on a smile and pretend to be nice' BS, but really a nice person deep down.
Kandee Johnson - my 6th one
My top favorites are (in order):
5.) Promise Phan
Seriously, there are too many to mention. I would include Pixiwoo and they're blog site because they manage to recreate some of the most rememberable makeup looks. Some makeup gurus have turned to the dark side when it comes to company product reviews or constantly plugs a pay-per-link service. But these makeup artists stayed true to their intentions.
I just started a makeup channel :) these girls inspired me! Maybe you guys can check it out & give me feedback!!! LOL my link is http://www.youtube.com/nellyslookbook ! I am trying to upload great content :D
I'm just going to list the only ones I care to watch anymore even though it's more than 5 because they're all fantastic:
and my favorite YouTuber of all time: DailyGrace (who is now on a brand new Bobbi Brown beauty channel: "I love makeup.")
Thank you for sharing the first two YouTubers. I have always had a hard time finding good, consistency makeup videos from women of color (esp. darker tones). I browsed through and found some cool tutorials!
