My Top 5 YouTubers!

20 Sep

hey girlies!!

so recently i’ve really got into the whole YouTube craze! there’s been nothing on the tele!! lol! 90210, glee and gossip girl seasons have started now tho.. excited! anyway back to the topic.. seriously, i’ve learnt so much. there are some great YouTube ‘gurus’  and there’s also some totally rubbish 1s! (what’s with all the teenagers trying to teach you how to put make-up on when they don’t have a clue!? i can’t believe some of them are so popular!) anyway the really great 1s  can inspire and teach you loads. honestly, people are always asking me about certain ways i’ve done my hair or make-up and my secret is YouTube! oh and BOYS  (i know there’s some of you reading this..) scroll down to number 4.. there’s a bit for you too!

My taste in makeup/fashion probably is not to everyones taste. i like to be quite quirky and like to experiment with both. i believe everyone is beautiful (however corny that sounds lol!) and make-up is there to enhance that natural beauty and not mask it. sometimes girls are so beautiful but u can’t tell because the natural part gets hidden which is such a shame. i think however trendy or colourful make-up is, you can still look effortless. it’s so much ‘cooler’!’

that’s why my first favourite is:

  1. Lisa Eldridge i love how she uses foundation to even out skin tone rather than cover it. that’s wat concealer is there for girls!! Lisa Eldridge is a professional make-up artist to the stars. she does make-up for magazine shoots and also makes videos for chanel on their website. i love her style and admire all her work. i wish i was half as talented.  i don’t need to say much as Lisa’s channel speaks for itself. even if you don’t watch any of the other YouTube channels (if you haven’t done so already) i’d urge you to watch hers! highly highly recommended!
  2. next is Goss Makeupartist. he’s a male make-up artist and i think the amazing thing that brings, is his unique way of thinking. he thinks outside the box. i’ve learnt some great tips and tricks from his quick videos. although many things contradict with things other make-up artists say and what i have been taught, its great to see a different perspective and give  them a try.
  3. moving away from make-up my next fave is LuxyHair. they’re two sisters from canada. i used to be rubbish at hair and never experimented till i started to watch their videos. they explain things really easily even for me! my hair look is usually messy and volumised but again i like it to look more effortless so adapt the styles to suit me. for a few of the mendhi’s i went to in the summer i did a rope braid and entwined a chain through. i got the idea from them, its soo easy n a change to the usual side plait. this eid just gone i did the 5 strand braid. and for all my relatives who asked me how i did it – luxy hair is defo my secret! SShhhh 😉
  4. hmmm there’s so many channels i love.. so im gunna cheat a lil and tell you about a YouTube family and pretend they count as 1! 😛  i think the whole family is fab! i’ll start with PIXIWOO. They’re two extremely talented sisters who are professional make-up artists. Pixiwoo were actually one of the first channels i subscribed to, they’re now the youtube version of A list celebs! then there is  J1MMYB0BBA their brother. <<<<< this is the one for the GUYS! whether it be the guy reading this or ur significant other, brother etc? don’t ask me why i watch it.. i have no idea, his videos always just look so interesting! Jims great ‘cos hes a proper guy! u wont feel like ur any less manly for watching it boys-trust me! lol! 😛  he talks about alsorts from shaving to fitness and eye creams, skincare, and hair products. its the stuff most guys are interested in or want to know about but tend to ignore. im always telling my little brother about stuff i learn from watching his videos and surprisingly he actually seems interested! guys, start looking after ur skin or u’ll regret it later! finally there is Jims girlfriend PIXI2WOO. she’s very down to earth and girl next door. i love her reviews of products and she does lotsa fab celebrity inspired looks.
  5. finally fashion related! i love Amenakin. she does amazing hijab tutorials,  and is a talented business women with her own very succesful online shopping website. i don’t wear a hijab regularly but when i do, i love getting ideas from her videos. shes very inspiring. also check out these girls with great style. honestly teenagers are so fashion forward these days! i thought i was fashion forward back then but thinking back, i really had no idea! lol and im pretty sure most people in our 20’s were like that! so here they are ThePersianBabe, ClothesEncounters, beautycrush.

i really do hope you find them interesting and helpful. ooo and a couple more i have to squeeeze in are hudaheidik and AModelRecommends i love their beauty related videos. soo sorry i didn’t keep tothe  top 5 title! those are my top 5 but i also think the others are great and really wanted to share them all with you!

hope ur all well and get inspired by these videos. who are your faves? and what do u think of mine? would love to hear from you so make sure you subscribe and leave feedback! let me know if you have any problems with any of the links etc, hopefully you shouldn’t but im new to all this so bare with me plz!

keep smiling 🙂
