2013 is coming to an end so I decided to dedicate each Friday in December to some favorites that I’ve developed over 2013. Today’s topic will be YouTube MakeUp Gurus!
Confession: I used to hate makeup with a burning passion. I did not like how foundation felt on my face, but then I discovered these ladies and fell in love!
Emily Eddington (emilynoel83)
I talk to her on Twitter all the time and I feel cool when I do. Weird? Maybe. She is just great. Her relationship with her husband (mother and sister as well) are so adorable and very inspirational. She is not afraid to be herself and her cat, Cupcake, is quite the character.
Melissa Raymond (melmphs)
Just watch one of her videos. You’re going to crack up! Her southern accent, the love she has for her baby and her ability to nail each product is just amazing! I wrote about her adoption story here and her relationship with her husband is pretty hilarious too! I found Melissa because of a swap she did with Emily.
I actually found Tati because YouTube recommended that I check her videos out. I rarely trust their recommendations but she was so pretty in the thumbnail that I had to watch one of her videos. I was hooked thirty seconds into it. Her engagement video is one of my favorites! She has the sweetest voice and she loves Melissa…so points!
Jersey girl accent, young and fresh ideas, girly to the max and the most positive person in the world. She is always motivating girls on her Instagram and whatnot. She not only does makeup, but clothing ideas as well which is great.
Lauren Curtis (lozcurtis)
Australian girl! She is so adorable and she follows my personal Twitter! Love, love, love her. So down to earth and so funny. She makes mistakes on camera and keeps going.
There are obviously more YouTube gurus that I absolutely love but these are my go-t0 girls. Or as they’d say, “HOLY GRAIL.” They are all down-to-earth and very self-confident. I love that they are not afraid to admit that they enjoy saving money and how supportive their families are.
*Disclaimer: None of these girls asked me to do this. I did this because they are my favorites and I wanted to do this for my blog. They’ve helped me improve my make-up skills and skin.*
God Bless & Be Happy!
