I mentioned in my post from Friday that I started a Youtube channel with my friend Emily. Over the past year, I've really gotten into watching Youtube videos, especially beauty videos. This is perhaps what has led me to explore makeup a little more (lol i sound like such a loser right now), but for the most part, I'm really drawn to these personalities. My favorite Youtubers are Estee Lalonde, Kathleen Fuentes of KathleenLights, Adriene Mishler of Yoga with Adriene, and Emily of Beauty with Emily Fox.
Yoga with Adriene is the outlier here, but in terms of the beauty videos, I'll most likely never use even half of the products that these Youtubers are featuring, but I like just knowing about them. There's also something strangely relaxing about makeup tutorials. Go figure.
I love Estee. She's easily my favorite Youtuber because her videos are, from a technical perspective, SO well done. Her boyfriend Aslan is a bit of a gear head with cameras and rigs, so he knows how to make the most beautiful video possible and as a person who literally makes videos for a living, I appreciate things like this. The video above is a perfect example of this. I also really like that Estee doesn't pack on the makeup. As I've said before: makeup is something I'm new to because I've pushed it away and rejected it for so long (I was too lazy, cheap, etc to deal with it). Now I happen to like the way I look with mascara on and I like to try out a few new things from time to time. But I have to say: the full face of primerfoundationconcealerpowderhighlighterbronzerblushthisthatwhatever is NOT for me. It's too much for me. Estee keeps it minimal and honestly, her makeup looks are my own makeup goals.
Kathleen Lights is one of my other favorites because I really like her honest opinions about products she likes or doesn't like. She uses both drug store and high end products and doesn't discriminate. This is her most recent empties video and I happen to really like empties videos because beauty gurus/youtubers have so many products and use so many, that it's interesting to see what they actually finished entirely (or not). She's also hysterical.
Beauty with Emily Fox
Her name is Emily and she's French Canadian, what else could I ask for? I love all of Emily's lip swatch videos and I feel like we could be friends if we actually knew each other IRL. Emily also keeps it pretty low key with her makeup looks, and I like to think that she tends to highlight different products that other Youtubers don't give as much attention to.
Yoga with Adriene
I have to admit that I've only actually done a few of Adriene's sessions, but again, I'm drawn to her personality. I love her "Find what feels good" tagline, and that she's not too serious. She keeps it light and not too "hippie dippie" (that's the best way i can figure out how to describe it). I've done yoga at home a few times and Adriene is always my go-to.
