Who knew you could learn valuable makeup skills without even leaving the house?
Over the last 10 years, YouTube has proven to be a valuable platform for the makeup community, with thousands of tutorials, reviews and hauls being posted each day. We share just some of our favourite YouTube gurus who can teach us all a thing or two about makeup.
Lets just face it… YouTube is nothing without makeup artist, Lisa Eldridge. With over 20 years of experience in the makeup industry including collaborations with Shiseido, creative director for boots, freelancing for various magazines, and now the newest creative director for Lancome – there’s nothing she hasn’t mastered in her career.
With a book on its way later this year, Lisa Eldridge should be in everyone’s subscription box – with good reason.
The girls behind the successful YouTube channel, Pixiwoo have been around for perhaps the longest. Sisters Nic and Sam Chapman and UK based makeup artists with a knack for recreating celebrity looks which everyone is sure to enjoy.
Through their recent success, Real Techniques was released as an affordable way to apply your makeup. Available at Priceline, Ulta, Boots, and even online.
Want to recreate those signature looks some of your favourite celebrities such as Rosie Huntington-Whitley have been sporting? Monika Blunder is a celebrity makeup artist who posts how-to videos to help you get that look for less.
One of the most popular makeup demonstrators to come out of the United States has to be Michelle Phan. With over 7 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, she posts a variety of makeup, skincare, and beauty looks which are presented in a cute and fashionable way.
Finally we’re finishing off this list with makeup artist, Wayne Goss. While it might seem a little odd taking makeup tips off a man – he really knows his stuff! From simple makeup to skincare hacks, Wayne tackles it all with humour, professionalism and a cheeky smile to boot.
