Once upon a time, YouTube musician Meghan Tonjes (commonly known as the #BootyRevolution girl) posted a Halloween makeup tutorial that made me laugh, cry, and pray. Literally. "Please God," I said, "Let this woman make more glorious makeup related videos so my soul can be happy." And lo! Nearly a year later, my prayers were answered. Meghan created a brand new beauty channel called LifesizeBeauty (paying homage to her former colab channel Project Lifesize) and in the short time her channel has been active she has covered a wide array of topics; she's done unboxings, makeup tutorials, product reviews, hauls, and she's talked about body positivity, haircare, plastic surgery, and MUCH MORE. Meghan has always been one of the most genuine, positive influences in the YouTube community, and it's so refreshing to see her expand her brand into the beauty world. I'm mildly obsessed with her - you should be too!
I first heard of Claire Marshall through my ultimate favorite beauty guru, essiebutton. Estee described her as "that cool LA girl we all wish we could be," and that's definitely a good description of her. I was skeptical as to whether or not I would like her videos because our styles are SO different (she's really punk, covered in tattoos, and contours her face like Kim Kardashian) but after watching her channel, I was taught a good lesson on not judging a book by it's cover. If you're looking for well-produced videos and quality content from a super cool chick, Claire is right for you!
Arden is yet ANOTHER recommendation from the lovely essiebutton, and she continually makes me laugh hysterically. I first started watching her after she visited Estee in London, and I've been completely hooked on her videos ever since. Arden's channel is a healthy mix of traditional beauty videos, outside-the-box beauty videos, and videos that have nothing to do with beauty at all. Regardless of what topics she covers, she never stops being herself! I regularly marathon through her videos and re-watch ones I've watched ten times before because I just can't get enough of her. Come into her garden. ;)
