A lot of people ask me where I learned to to makeup. Admittedly, I think I'm still in the lower end, perhaps lower middle, of the learning curve as far as makeup goes. I know a bit but I am definitely getting better every day. But the way I get better is to practice and watch youtube gurus. So, here is a list of my top ten makeup gurus! I'm going to try to grade them by how much I like them but I really do love all these ladies (and men).

A lot of people bash these girls but I find them sweet. No, they don't do crazy looks but they can and do show you the basics. And they are sisters! Pretty sweet.

Now, people may think I'd hate her because anyone who wants to make fun of me says I'm just trying to be her, but I don't. She's great! I put her low on my list because her personality (at least what is portrayed in videos) is sort of boring. I'm sure she a fun, vibrant girl but her videos are sort of impersonal which doesn't suit me very much. BUT she is beautiful, skilled and professional. And that is something to definitely be admired.

It grieves me to put him not in the top five because I am a HUGE fan of Nickie's other channels ( soundlyawake and stillsoundlyawake) but it's only low because the channel is relatively new. He does great! And he is hysterical! Check him (and his other channels) out.

I LOVE HIM. He is TOO funny and his makeup is flawless. If I could even be HALF as gorgeous as this man I would be happy.
6. goldiestarling ( [link]
I'm not sure what to say about her. She is great, has some really really cool Halloween tutorials. She has a cute personality. Very nice girl. I love her.

She is sort of similar to goldiestarling without the Halloween tutorials. Her particular looks just tend to appeal to me slightly more. She's really sweet!

I don't do nail art, but she is one of my favorite gurus because she blows my freaking MIND. LOOK AT HER! SO BAD ASS!

He does really really impressive costume makeup. He also does drag so he is good at highlighting the most feminine features of the face.
2. grav3yardgirl ( [link]
This one is a total cheat because the main reason I love her isn't her makeup videos, she is just an amazing person. But I like how she admits that she is still learning about makeup like everyone else and her looks inspire me. Give her a watch, she is one of my favorite youtubers ever.

She is why I started doing makeup. Lately she has been doing less tutorials but I don't care. I have watched her old ones time and time again. She is where I got the idea to take something like Pokemon and do makeup with it because she has done that with Harry Potter, candy, Princesses, The Hunger Games, ect. If you like me, you will LOVE Lisha.
