Let’s face it, most everyday women are hacks at applying their own makeup.
From the plethora of products available to understanding how to best use and apply it, the task of makeup application can be overwhelmingly daunting for your average makeup user.
Here is where the fabulous makeup blogger/vlogger enters the scene ready to assist.
Not only do they do all the work of researching the best products on the market, but they painstakingly show the makeup novice how to best apply the product through countless amazing makeup tutorials, all from the comfort of your own home.
What Makes A Good Makeup Blogger?
The best makeup bloggers provide easy to follow practical advice, usually through step by step vlogs (that’s video blogs for anyone born before 1995). As they apply the makeup, usually to themselves, they show you how much of each product they use, what tool is best for that product and the best technique to achieve the desired look.
The greatest makeup bloggers are passionate about what they do and show their creativity and personality not only in the look they are creating but also in the way they teach the art of makeup.
Here are some of Australia’s best makeup bloggers on Youtube.
Australia’s Best Youtube Makeup Channels
A hilarious personality mixed with excellent makeup techniques sums up Chloe Morello’s Youtube channel. Chloe is right up there with the best of Australia’s makeup vloggers with over 2.2 million subscribers. From how to get the ‘I’m not wearing makeup’ makeup look, to the ‘Glittery party look’ and everything in between, Chloe has you covered with her talented makeup tutorials.
Another household name in the makeup blogger industry is the well known (close to four million subscribers) blonde bombshell, Lauren Curtis. With clever product reviews, makeup and hair tutorials, Lauren is all about making you look and feel the most beautiful ‘you’ possible. Some of Lauren’s most viewed vlogs are for ‘natural but glam looks’. But her enormous channel covers every possible beauty topic you can think of and more.
A sensational Melbourne based makeup artist, Heidi has made a name for herself inspiring and educating young women and men to become great makeup artists. She is also passionate about giving confidence to everyday women so that they can look and feel amazing. A true artist in every sense of the word, and a great cook, Heidi creates visions and turns them into masterpieces.
Yet another great Australian makeup vlogger, Karima is all about style and sophistication in every aspect of makeup. Her educational vlogs are all about endeavoring to teach the best techniques with emphasis on blending and colour placement. One of Karima’s stand out vlogs is her ‘Easiest Winged Eyeliner Tutorial’ with a simple and easy to follow approach to makeup application.
Nikki is best known for her everyday makeup routine for dark skin. Originally from Sudan but now calling Australia home, Nikki is an ex-model and has recently had a baby. An aesthetically stunning woman with glowing skin to match, Nikki is sought after not only for the best application for darker skinned women but her excellent pregnancy advice.
Besides helping women all over the world understand makeup products and helping them to create the best version of themselves, these makeup gurus are making a living doing what they love. Not a bad career choice for women who are passionate about makeup. Of course, these outstanding makeup vloggers first had to become outstanding makeup artists.
