Spring is finally here!! But you wouldn’t be able to tell that with the weather we’ve had in Bay lately. It’s cold, rainy, and gloomy. To help cheer myself up, I painted my nails a bright shimmery pink :-) I wanted to try out zebra stripes but they turned out tiger stripes. lol. Oh Well. I tried and I still love how they turned out. It’s pretty with attitude. I look forward to playing with more bright colors for the Spring season and I hope the weather brightens up too.
I know alot of us watch YouTube. I didn’t really get into it until about a year ago. And now I’m hooked. There is just something addictive about YouTube. I started watching one makeup video, then another and another. I saw a lot of makeup gurus and follow quite a few now. We all have our favorites and here are mine:
This is no particular order – but these are the gurus that I watch the most and look forward to watching.
angeec03 – Better known as Mommagee. Of all the gurus, I watch, I relate to her the most. She’s a mom with two boys, lives in the bay area and kicks ass in makeup. Most of the looks she’s done, I would wear and I’ve tried quite a few of her looks out. I also got a chance to meet her in person and she is just as sweet as I thought she’d be.
mzmakeupartizt – Alondra is raw and a true artist. She can create a masterpiece with makeup. It would take me lots and lots of practice to even get close to pulling off one of her looks. She’s also done very wearable looks that are just so beautiful. I am mesmerized by her. I love how bold she is.
EnkoreMakeup: Koren is who I look to for advice and tips. I’ve learned so much from him. One day, I will have enough money to go one of his classes.
manwomanfilm: I just recently discovered her and I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to. She is amazing, cute, and funny.
petrilude: Josh is gorgeous and I love watching his videos. He is so talented and I love how to the point he is on his videos.
vintageortacky – Cora is fabulous with makeup. I love her personality and her attitude.
exoticmimi921: Love this girl. She is very talented. Not only in makeup, but she has amazing drawing skills. Plan on hitting her up for a drawing of my kids and family.
stillglamorous: Kasey is beautiful and I love her makeup line. Her looks are gorgeous. I also watch her StillGlamMom channel for meal ideas and to watch her pregnancy blogs. I am very happy for her and her family.
pursebuzz: Elsa is just so sweet and she always has neat tips and tricks. I like watching her reviews.
makeupgeektv: Marlena is very sincere and sweet. I love how brave she is for sharing some of her personal life. Love watching her tutorials and I love how her blog has alternatives to the high end makeup she uses for some of her looks.
andreaschoice: Andrea has great hair tips. My hair is similar to hers so a lot of her tips and tricks work great for me. I’ve also come to love my naturally frizzy, wavy, and curly hair by watching her.
michellephan: Michelle is one of the first ones I started watching. I like all her tips and DIY videos.
bubzbeauty: Bubbi was also one of first gurus I started watching. She had hair and makeup tutorials that were easy to try. I love her clothing line.
I am subscribed to many more and I know that there are many many more talented gurus on YouTube. I am not saying that these are the best. I am saying that these are my favorite and I am sure that I will find other talented beauty gurus that I will be adding to my list.
So who are your favorites?
