3 amazing makeup tutorials from Black YouTubers we love

YouTube pretty much raises us these days. It shows us how to cook, how to fix that leaky faucet, and everything there is to know about fashion and beauty. When it comes to makeup, it’s so much better to watch someone demonstrate a technique than trying to figure it out yourself. The beauty associates in stores are usually willing to help, but you don’t want to hit them up every time you want to try a new look.

That’s why makeup YouTubers are so great. You can watch from the comfort of your own home and follow along with someone who knows what they are doing. Let’s check out three amazing Black YouTubers who have some of the best basic makeup tutorials out there.

The first YouTuber you need to check out is Andrea Renee. Her support of Black makeup brands is awesome. Plus, she also loves to give advice that will work with any budget. Sometimes when all you can afford is the dollar store, she has you covered.

Andrea shows you how to look natural and achieve a minimalistic look. We love the less is more approach and letting your natural beauty shine. Her page breakdown is really nice and easy to find what you want.

What we love

  • Beauty Hauls

She breaks down her beauty hauls, showing off the awesome finds so that you can get them, too.

  • Chill time

Her section “chill with me” is a nice touch. Who doesn’t love to watch people more relaxed and at ease in their own space? These segments go beyond makeup where she shows you how she does her videos, organizes her beauty spaces, cleans beauty tools, and more.

  • Beginner palette

Our absolute favorite is when Renee shows you how to do looks with just one palette. Needing fewer tools and items keeps things simple and saves on money. Plus, these segments are beginner-friendly!

We love that she tries products first in front of your eyes. Real-time reactions and unscripted feelings help people understand how the product will actually work for them.

  • Get to know her

You always see the face, but how much do you know about the person behind it? Nyma has a section dedicated to letting you get to know her, not just her beautiful face. We love that personal aspect.
