My Top 3 Beauty Videos on YouTube this Week

Friday 20 January 2012

Here it is, my first instalment of my new weekly feature!

There were a lot of good ones to choose from this week, Saturday 13th January, to Friday 20th, with office or daytime makeup, nail polish reviews and Golden Globes makeup tutorials among the most popular uploads. It was a tough choice, but I narrowed it down to these three, which stood out above the crowd!

1. Lisa Eldridge - lisaeldridgedotcom - Marilyn Monroe Iconic Makeup Look

This video has been receiving universal praise since it was uploaded on Wednesday 18th, and already has over 100,000 views - and rightly so. The video is not only highly informative, giving you the step by step guide to the perfect Marilyn makeup, but is also beautifully filmed, and highlights just how knowledgeable Lisa is as a makeup artist. She gives detailed and fascinatin accounts of Marilyn's makeup routine, and the end result on her lovely model is stunning! Definitely one to watch, and hard to miss - the video has been being retweeted and shared on facebook over and over again since it appeared on her youtube channel 2 days ago!

2. Wayne Goss - gossmakeupartist - Makeup Secrets!!! Makeup Tips!!!

The brilliant thing about Wayne Goss's videos is that they are always to the point! And he (and other youtubers) should definitely make more videos like this one! In just seven minutes, he throws several great makeup tips at his viewers, giving clear instructions for really easy to do tricks that can improve your makeup application and the way you use products, simple things that really can make you look and feel great! He's as charming as ever, and this is definitely a must watch for anyone looking for a few easy ways to change up their makeup routine!

3. Tanya Burr - Pixi2woo - Cara Delevingne Burberry Makeup for Pale Skin

I love all of Tanya's videos, but I think makeup tutorials for pale skin are always helpful to watch - for makeup artists as well as people with pale skin. Drug store/high street foundation colour ranges are often criticized for not catering for darker skin tones (Sleek is a brand which succeeds here where others fail!) but it is equally as difficult for some of us really pale skinned people! So this video is not only a lovely makeup look, but it is also really useful for anyone with pale skin who is looking for a new way to wear their makeup, and embrace the planess! Thumbs up for the lovely Tanya, a really great choice of tutorial!

Extra video of the week...

As I said I'm going to include an extra video of the week every Friday, and this week is happens to ba makeup related too! I'm going to try to make sure I vary this one week to week as there are so many amazing vloggers and singer etc out there on YouTube who I love, and who deserve to be mentioned! This week, however, the honour goes to one of my favourite YouTubers, Kandee Johnson!

4. Kandee Johnson - kandeejohnson - Kim Kardashian and Red Carpet Makeup

Since it was Golden Globes week and I didn't include a GGs tutorial, I figured I would include Kandee's GGs experience video! She was invited along to the HBO luxury Lounge, and Loreal Beauty Suits and she discusses in this video, in her ever bubbly and friendly style, some of the makeup trends she noticed at the event, and some of the exciting behind the scenes hair and makeup secrets! Can you believe there were vases of Loreal lipglosses and mascaras in the toilets at the after party for guests to take as many as they liked!? And that there were two professional makeup artists there to touch up your makeup at any time!? Ahh the glamorous life of celebrity parties! A totally nude makeup look with nude eyes and lips, see Reese Witherspoon for a gorgeous example, a few standard smokey eyes or a simple black eyeliner and bold coloured mouth were the top trends our intrepid reporter noticed on the many gorgeous celebrities at the event!

Hope you enjoyed that guys, and I'll be back with my second installment next Friday! Hopefully it will help you find some of the best videos to watch each week if you don't have time to sit through the very many wonderful videos which are uploaded to the YouTube beauty community every day! For some reason the links keep messing up the post, hence the reason I included channel names and video titles instead, so you can find them easily on YouTube!
