MY TOP 5: BEAUTY YOUTUBERS – INTERNATIONAL EDITION

Today, I’m in the mood for something different. This is a very popular topic in the beauty community – which Youtube beauty vloggers do we watch, who has the scoop on the newest items in the market, who is lying and who is telling the truth, whom do we trust and why. I don’t like repeating myself too often so here they are – my top 5 foreign beauty Youtubers. I’m also planning a post about my favorite Slovenian beauty Youtubers very soon. Hopefully, you’ll find someone new to enjoy in my top picks.

Danes mi diši malo drugačna objava. Tema najljubših Youtube ustvarjalcev je v lepotni skupnosti dokaj popularna – katere gledamo, kdo ima vedno objave o najnovejših izdelkih, kdo laže in kdo govori resnico, komu zaupamo in zakaj. Ker se nerada prepogosto pojavljam, raje vse skupaj spravim v lep blog zapis. Tu je torej mojih pet najljubših Youtube ustvarjalcev, pričakuješ pa lahko še objavo o mojih najljubših slovenskih – red mora biti! Upam, da ti bo moj izbor všeč in boš svoje naročnine obogatila s kakšnim izmed njih.

5th place: Zabrena

This beautiful redhead provides great make-up looks, especially ON POINT eyeshadows. She also provides I believe are honest reviews of trendy make-up products. You should also check out her Frugal Fridays series for some great tips to save money. Zabrena’s videos are never too long and rarely exceed 10 minutes, so she’s often my little make-up fix while I’m waiting for the pasta to cook.

Čudovita rdečelaska ustvarja krasne make-up videze, še posebej čudovit je njen očesni make-up. Njenim ocenam resnično zaupam Preveri tudi njeno serijo Frugal Fridays, v kateri lahko najdeš ogromno namigov, kako prihraniti kakšen evro. Zabrenini videi nikoli niso predolgi in le redko presežejo 10 minut, zato si njene najnovejše stvaritve pogosto pogledam kar med tem, ko čakam, da zavre voda za špagete.

4th place: Gothamista

Gothamista is nothing but serious when it comes to skincare. She had problems with skin in her youth and since then, she’s been on the hunt for the best (luxury and drugstore) skincare products. She’s the one I trust the most on reviews for new skincare and Korean beauty. Throw a bit of DIY in the skincare department in there and voila – you’ve got a channel you should definitely check out before investing in that 70€ moisturizer.

Gothamista je ženska, ki se nege obraza loteva smrtno resno. V mladosti je imela problematično kožo in od takrat dalje išče najboljše drage (in poceni) izdelke za nego kože. Je Youtuberka, ki ji najbolj zaupam za ocene novih linij negovalne kozmetike in korejskih lepotnih izdelkov. Če k temu dodamo še zanimive DIY videe za domače žavbice, nastane čudovita mešanica in kanal, ki ga vsekakor moraš preveriti, preden kupiš tisto oh-in-sploh kremico za 70€.

3rd place aaand bronze medal: Raw Beauty Kristi

Kristi was in top six in last year’s NYX Face Awards but for some reason or another, she didn’t stick in my head back then. I discovered her a few months ago and I’m about half way through her entire channel history. She is funny as F (also, should sometimes be PG rated) and not the average beauty queen of Youtube we’re all used to, but beautiful nevertheless. She carries her heart on her sleeve and I feel that she can’t really pretend, so I trust her opinions 100 %. Also, never click out of her videos early – you’ll be sorry if you miss the bloopers! The video below speaks volumes about her character.

Kristi je bila lansko leto med finalisti NYX Face Awards, vendar mi iz neznanega razloga takrat ni ostala v spominu. Njen kanal sem odkrila nekaj mesecev nazaj in v tem času pregledala že dobro polovico vsega, kar je objavila v preteklosti. Je noro smešna (vendar morda ne najbolj primerna za mlade gledalce). Ni standardna lepotna kraljica, kot smo jih vajeni na Youtubu, vendar pa je meni kljub temu čudovita. Srce nosi na dlani in čutim, da se ne zna pretvarjati, zato 100 % zaupam njenim ocenam. Predlagam ti, da njenih videov ne prenehaš gledati pred koncem, saj boš zamudila ekstra zabavne “blooperje”. Video spodaj ti pove veliko o njenem karakterju.

2nd place, earning the silver:  Wayne Goss

Well, I guess that one really big Youtuber is bound to make this list, right? What I love, love, love about Wayne is his no-nonsense approach to make-up and beauty. He’s big on criticizing trends which should be illegal and first to point out what you can do to enhance your natural beauty without wearing a ton of make-up. I trust his reviews 100 % as I’ve tried many of his recommendations and I haven’t been disappointed so far. He’s also super funny, so there.  I’ve probably watched this video below 10 times before and it still makes me laugh out loud.

Verjetno ni presentljivo, da se je med mojimi najljubšimi ustvarjalci znašel tudi en res velik Youtuber. Pri Waynu mi je noro všeč njegov praktičen pristop k make-upu in lepoti. Brez težave kritizira trende, ki bi morali po njegovem mnenju izginiti z obličja zemlje in je velik zagovornik naravne lepote brez tone ličil. Njegovim priporočilom stoodstotno zaupam, ker sem mnogo izdelkov že preizkusila in me niso razočarali. Poleg vsega naštetega pa je Wayne tudi izredno smešen. Video spodaj sem verjento gledala že vsaj desetkrat in še vedno me nasmeji. Vreden ogleda!

First place and GOLD medal goes to: STEPHANIE NICOLE

It’s simple with Stephanie – you’ll either love her to death or hate her. I fall into the first category and while her videos often go well over 30 minutes, they’re still too short for my liking. She is the queen of detailed reviews – if there is something you wanted to know about a certain palette or lipstick – cost per gram, ingredients, packaging, dupes and so forth – Stephanie has you covered. Just to make an example – I would say that an average review of an eyeshadow palette is 30 minutes long and you won’t even see the swatches until 15 minutes in. I’ve learned a lot from her and as a beauty industry insider, she always amazes me with her eye for detail. She also speaks her mind about the ethical side of the beauty industry which I’m a big fan of (in case you missed my post about that – you can find it *here*). Overall, 6/5 for Steph, she’s a must watch for every beauty lover. As an example of an excellent review I’m linking her video about Morphe, since I know that many of you are interested in that brand.

S Stephanie je v resnici zelo enostavno – ali ti bo izredno všeč, ali pa sploh ne. Sama padem v prvo kategorijo in čeprav večina njenih videov traja več kot 30 minut, ne bi imela nič proti, če bi bili še daljši. Stephanie je moja kraljica natančnih ocen. Če o določeni paleti senčil ali šminki želiš vedeti prav vse podrobnosti – cena na gram, sestavine, pakiranje, podobni odtenki in tako naprej – boš pri Stephanie vse to tudi našla. Kot primer ti lahko povem, da je njena povprečna ocena palete senčil dolga 30 minut, pri čemer s swatchi začne šele po kakšnih 15 minutah. Ker tudi sama dela v lepotni industriji, sem se od nje resnično veliko naučila, poleg tega pa je izredno natančna, kar cenim. Zelo pogosto govori tudi o etičnih vidikih lepotne industrije, kar mi je zelo všeč (če te zanima, kaj sama menim o tem, najdeš objavo *tu*). Na splošno ji lahko podelim le najvišje ocene in mislim, da bi morala biti na seznamu prav vsakega, ki ga zanima lepota. Kot dober primer spodaj pripenjam njen video o znamki Morphe, saj je to znamka, ki privlači tudi mnogo slovenk.

Honorary mention for the most unique one in my subscription box goes to Pompberry. She is an incredibly talented MUA who’s been in the Top 12 for the US NYX face awards for two years running now. If you want to relax and see some magic happen in front of your eyes, click on the video below. And until next time, stay beautiful!

Častna ocena za najbolj unikatno vlogerko v mojih naročninah gre Pompberry. Je neverjetno nadarjena umetnica ličenja, ki je bila že dvakrat zapored izbrana med 12 najboljših na NYX Face awards. Če se želiš za trenutek odpočiti in si ogledati malo čarovnije, klikni na video spodaj. Do naslednjič, ostani čudovita!

    STEPHANIE NICOLE je res carica in njene ocene so res zakon. 🙂 Zdaj že nekaj časa nisem pogledala nobenega njenega videa, ampak vidim da jo moram spet malo prečekirat. 🙂

      Jaz dobesedno VSE spustim iz rok, če le lahko, in tečem gledat, ko mi piska opozorilo za novo objavo. Edina, za katero imam nastavljen notification! 🙂

    Na mojem seznamu najbljubših so skoraj vsi, ki si jih omenila tudi ti, zame pa sta novi Gothamista in Zabrena. Grem počekirat 🙂

    Super objava!

    • Maša Muster 20. 9. 2017 / 21:23

      Hvala Sara 🙂 Zabrena je res tak quick fix, Gothamisto pa jaz gledam z mojim “skincare” zvezkom in kulijem v roki. Sem se ogromno naučila od nje, tako da če te zanima nega, resnično priporočam!

    Si mi dala nekaj idej za nove Youtube kanale! Super objava! xx

    • Maša Muster 20. 9. 2017 / 21:22

      Čisto vsi so super, res priporočam (samo da ne bom potem jaz kriva, ko boš preveč časa na YT) 😀

    Gothamisto in Gossa spremljam tudi sama. Čeprav Gossa vedno manj. Se mi zdi, da se mu določene tematike videev stalno ponavljajo. Mi je pa všeč njegov sarkazem in kratki videi :).
