My top 3 favourite makeup gurus

During my free time, I like to browse youtube. This is when I can find talented people who are willing to share their expertise such as these three makeup gurus who I am going to talk about below. I really admire them as they are really good at demonstrating their makeup skills in their youtube videos and they have nice and interesting personalities as well!:) So here it goes!^_^

Michelle Phan is a professional makeup artist and a spokeperson for Lancome. She is based in United States and I think she is also studying in an art school. I really like her because she's so creative and hands-on. To me, her makeup style is sophisticated and somewhat edgy. Her youtube tutorials are quite pleasant to watch as she always uses nice songs for the background music and she also explains with her soothing voice. Occasionally, she will teach her audience how to diy cosmetic products such as facial masks, paper hair curler,etc. However, I think her tutorials are more suitable for people who have some makeup experience.
The following is her antique smokey eyes tutorial that I really like.:)

Next is Lindy Tsang.
Better known as Bubzbeauty, she is currently based in Hong Kong and she also has a clothing line sold via her website. Her makeup style is more cutesy but nonetheless, pleasant-looking as well. She is also pretty good at hairstyling such as braiding hair with a bendable wire ribbon as shown above in her picture. I think her makeup tutorials are really suitable for Asian females in general. Especially for those who love cute Japanese/Korean lady look.:) Here's one of my favourite videos of hers on how to achieve a clear skin. 

Last but not least is Blair Fowler.
Like Michelle, she is also based in United States. She is the youngest out of the three gurus mentioned as she still attends high school. I really like how she does the makeup on her eyes and I think she has a nice room as well.:) She also has a very good tutorial video on how to do the big,soft Victoria Secret inspired hair as shown below.

Ah...overall, I really love what they are doing. It inspires me to take better care of my skin and teaches me how to style myself better as well.:) Hope this information will be useful to some of you girls out there as well! =)



I used to have this type of favourite person on YT but I lost track of her. She is from HK, but instead of a make up guru, she is more of a shopping guru esp on skincare products. I love her because she always bought a lot of things and made review on them.

Sigh, I can't even remember her name :(

Ah ic2..I think Bubzbeauty also does reviews on skincare products now and then. I think it'll be fun to do such videos.:P
