You Tube Favourites

For the past year now I have been obsessed with watching fashion and beauty videos on You Tube. I one day would love to start up my own channel and hopefully have a more interactive connection with my readers. Until then, I will live this goal vicariously through my favourite ladies.

These talented and entertaining girls have made such a strong name for themselves across the web. They have created their own make up lines with various make up brands, travelled the world with other bloggers and turned what they do into an amazing career.

Jaclyn Hill:

Probably one of the most successful You Tube channels, Jaclyn has over two million subscribers tuning in each week. Her outrageous and vibrant personality isn’t for everyone but I find her massively entertaining. She is an incredible make up artist who lives in Florida, and she can create pretty much any look. She loves a strong smoky eye and can pose in front of a camera like it’s no ones business. Jaclyn also collaborated with Becca Cosmetics to created a stunning highlighter called, Champagne Pop. You can read my post on it here.

In The Frow:

UK blogger, Victoria has really came into the limelight for her blog and You Tube channel within the past two years. She is a lover of tattoos, colourful hair and designer brands. Until recently she had purple ombre hair but she has opted for a more muted grey for Autumn. Her style also features on her channel and she creates look books along with haul videos.

Beauty Life Michelle:

This Irish beauty has been busy living it up at NYFW last week as she was giving the opportunity to attend some shows curiosity of Tresemme. Her channel is growing stronger every day and her make up looks are so pretty. I could spend hours just watching her create different looks. The Aussie based beauty is definitely one of my favourites and I actually think she was the first ever You Tube channel I started watching.

Vivianna Does Make Up:

A classic English girl, Anna is that girl next door. She comes across as a bit of a good girl with a very natural look. She is best friends with Lily Pebbles and the two often collaborate together on their channels and more recently have held some workshops at Space NK. She features a mixture of drugstore and high end products on her channel and creates very soft and sweet looks.

Kathleen Lights:

This quirky Latino from Miami is one of the funniest girls around who actually has no idea just how hilarious she is. Her story is quite inspirational, she is 23 years old and is married to a military man so she lives on base. She has such beautiful porcelain skin and she enjoys the drugstore products overall so she is perfect for those of you who like to shop on a budget. I was lucky enough to get my hands on her quartz shadow palette that she created with Colour Pop Cosmetics. It is so beautifully pigmented and I can’t wait to use it this season.

Within the next year I really want to get into the swing of starting up my own channel. It’s definitely on my bucket list but I’m just not sure how the Belfast accent will sound on camera. Haha!

Inspirational Blogger || Vivianna Does Make Up

Ever look at a girl and think that she would be the funnest person to be friends with? This is exactly how I feel when I watch Vivianna Does Make Up. She seems like such a cool girl and looks completely effortless. Anna is a UK blogger based in London and has established herself as a beauty blogger. Her euthusiam for life is quite sweet and she always remains true to herself no matter how well her blog is doing.

What I love most about Anna is how she is not afraid to go in front of the camera without any make up on. Now I will admit that I’m not sure if I could do that. I have such horrible dark circles around my eyes and I’m always conscious of them. However, Anna has incredible skin, perhaps this makes it a little easier for her to go bare for her blog and YouTube Channel. Her looks are often quite simple and natural looking. Now and then Anna will incorporate a more glamorous make up style into her videos.

Anna knows a thing or do about all things beauty and is always on trend with the latest make up releases. I would love to see her entire make up and beauty collection as I’m sure it is huge. Simplistic often springs to mind when I think of Anna, this also translates into her social media and blog images. Being a huge fan of both drugstore and high end brands, she caters to all audiences.

By the way, have I mentioned that Anna is friends with beauty blogger extraordinaire, Lily Pebbles. The two best friends share their love of beauty and work together on several projects and YouTube videos. Imagine working closely with your best friend in the world, how amazing would that be?! Having a genuine group of friends within your work setting and blogging community is the best feeling in the world. It must feel like you’re in a bubble talking make up and sharing this with them, perfect job eh?

Remember I was saying earlier about looking at a person and wanting to be friends with them? Here’s another reason why, the laid back Anna is not afraid to laugh at herself. For Halloween you will never see her in a cliché girly costume. Nope, she’ll be the one dresses up as a massive pumpkin. My kind of girl! She also incorporates the two ff’s into her blog – fashion and food. A girl who loves their grub is a favourite of mine, combined with a chic style and the odd chocolate chip recipe then I’m in heaven.

How was everyone’s weekend? Have you all started your Christmas shopping yet? I treated myself to an upgrade yesterday and purchased the HTC One in rose gold. I have not stopped playing with the phone. I love it.
