2015 was THE year of the Beauty Vlogger. I know it can seem a little vapid to sit and watch beautiful girls applying make-up over and over – and I’ll admit I was skeptical at first. But I, like thousands of beauty lovers around the world, have embraced this phenomenon and are happy to be a part of the online beauty community. Whether you’re after tips and tricks, tutorials, hauls or product reviews there is a video, or a YouTube personality to suit you. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a background in beauty, if you’re a true lover of beauty products, or you’re just starting out – online beauty vlogs are the best place for accurate information, in depth descriptions and honest reviews. In the last year we’ve seen the likes of Lauren Curtis, Chloe Morello, Jaclyn Hill, Nicole Guerriero & Michelle Phan dominate the internet with several million subscribers each. But with 2016 now in full force, you might be looking for some further inspo.
Without further ado, here are the Best Up and Coming Beauty Vloggers in 2016.
This blonde bombshell is not only gorgeous and bubbly but BFF of Chloe Morello – every girls dream! Rachael’s story is an interesting one – after witness a workshop from Makeup Artist Rae Morris in primary school she begged to drop out and work with her.
