Top 5 Favorite YouTube Beauty Gurus

I spend copious amounts of my time watching beauty videos on YouTube and over the years I have found my favorites so I thought I'd share them!

5. Alison Henry (Alisonlovesjb)

Alison is a 20 year old with strong beliefs and amazing makeup skills. Her blending technique is flawless. She has some of the most unique Halloween tutorials, one I used this Halloween on myself! She is very down to earth and she opens up a lot to viewers telling them about her personal life and her beliefs. She has a strong love for all different animals and has lots of pets. She's definitely a channel you should check out!

4. Karissa Pukas

Karissa is a Canadian girl currently living in Australia. She has a quirky personality and is not afraid to speak her mind. I love her TMI Tuesdays where she answers questions from her fans. She doesn’t sensor herself and she’s not afraid to be goofy. She’ll easily tell you she’s a huge Star Wars nerd! She uses a bunch of colors in her makeup tutorials and she has some great vlogs too!

3. Lauren Cutris

Lauren is also from Australia! She give the best tips, not only does she give you tips but she shows you how people generally do it wrong. I think her videos are the best for people just starting in makeup. She really shows you the dos and don'ts of applying makeup.

2. Jaclyn Hill

Jaclyn is a former MAC makeup artist. She does great reviews and she really tells you if the product works or not. Her tutorials are spot on ah-mazing. Every single one of her makeup looks are beautiful and I just wish I could recreate them perfectly! She is super goofy and you can see that in her bloopers at the end. 

1. Tess Christine (TessChristine123) 

Tess is a recent college graduate from Minnesota. A main reason why she is my number one is because she is so down to earth. Her makeup tutorials are neutral but they’re all a little different. They’re all eye looks that people would actually do everyday, not all colorful and crazy! Tess has great style and she makes amazing look books in which she provides link to the items she’s styling, which when you’re watching her wearing them you’re going to want to go out and buy everything for yourself! Her “Get the Look” series is where she takes a celebrity and find their exact outfits / hair / makeup looks, she gets the looks so spot on! She doesn't have a huge makeup collection but I love that! She hits pan on almost all of her makeup and she really shows you that she's a real small town girl like me! If I got to meet/befriend any YouTuber I would definitely pick Tess! So go check her out!

P.S. If you like The Vampire Diaries like I do, you're really going to love her!
