The Best Makeup YouTube Channels For Each Skin Type

Beginning makeup can be overwhelming. If you want to begin makeup and don't know where to start then don't worry because I, too, have been lost in the crazy world of makeup. And if you have been doing makeup and just never knew the meaning behind some descriptions on foundations like Normal to Dry foundation, for example, I've found you help for that. Starting makeup is not something you can jump into without some preparation. I would not suggest doing this unless you want to have all of your makeup slide/ flake off of your face. I am guilty of this! 

When I started doing makeup, my foundation made me look like a honey bun, and in high school, a big makeup problem that I had was making sure that my foundation lasted all day. Having been a beginner with my makeup, I didn't know that you had to choose foundations for your particular skin type. There are many because everyone's skin is different but to narrow it down there are Normal to Dry, Dry, Oily and Combination skin types. My skin type is oily, so I can't use foundations that are dewy or have oils in them because then I will look like a greasy hot dog 2-3 hours after I apply my makeup. My friend Katherine, on the other hand, who has dry skin would love a foundation that has oils to hydrate her skin because foundations that suit my skin type would crust and cake up on the dry patches on her face. My roommate Kierra's skin is Combination, which means that her skin can be dry and oily in many random spots on her face. Many people will have their T-Zone very oily, and then their cheeks are covered in dry skin. 

Still, need some more information to seal the deal on what skin type you may be? Have no fear, I am here, and I'm going to give you the best YouTubers, in my opinion, for each skin type. Below are some amazingly talented YouTuber’s whose channels give you tips for challenges you may have regarding your skin type and what foundations you should purchase. Not to mention any struggles they have regarding their skin type that you can relate to and how to fix them. Don't hesitate to check out the other talented YouTubers that may not have your skin type. They are all exceptional individuals to take a break and watch!
