YouTube has become our go-to place for beauty tips and tricks. But with thousands of video tutorials to choose from, it can be difficult to sift the good from the bad. Thankfully, we’ve done the work for you and rounded up the six best makeup tutorials on YouTube.
How to use liquid liner
Michelle Phan is the YouTube beauty queen. With over 4.5 million subscribers, her channel is one of our favourites for the best beauty and fashion tips. Though she has a huge roster of incredible tutorials, we especially love her video on using liquid liner. With extremely detailed instructions on a few different techniques, you’ll be able to create that perfect cat eye in no time.
How to conceal dark circles
Dark circles are the bane of our existence…especially on the days where we neglected to get enough sleep. But with so many concealing products on the market, it almost seems like a science to figure out which product works best. That’s where Tiffany D of MakeupbyTiffanyD comes in handy. In this video she gives an extremely in-depth explanation of the different types of concealers available, and which one you should choose, depending on your skin tone. The result? Brighter-looking eyes that aren’t cakey.
How to apply false eyelashes
Applying false eyelashes can be pretty intimidating, especially if you’ve never done it before. Thankfully, Leesha of xsparkage has created this quick tutorial on how to apply your falsies so they’ll look natural and super flattering.
How to contour and highlight
Wayne of gossmakeup artist says it best in this video: Kim Kardashian is most famous for her contouring and highlighting – at least when it comes to her makeup. Wayne creates those harsh lines that Kim famously posted a pic of on Twitter, and shows that with the proper blending techniques, you too can have a perfectly contoured face. Bonus points for also including the eye and lip area — something that isn’t covered by most contouring tutorials.
How to cover up acne
Cassandra Bankson of DiamondsandHeels14 shot to fame after posting this video on covering up her severe cystic acne. Bankson has become an inspiration to women all over the world for bravely showing off her makeup-free face and for her ability to create what appears to be a flawless complexion. Since posting this video, Bankson has become an international sensation appearing on TV and in magazines, and modeling for Sephora, Hourglass Cosmetics and CHI.
Simple 5-minute makeup tutorial
Lisa Eldridge is another one of our favourite beauty gurus on YouTube. The professional makeup artist has worked with top celebrities and models and shares her tips and tricks via her channel. We love this quick and easy 5-minute makeup tutorial. Perfect for days when we hit that snooze button too many times.
