1. Mikaela Long
Mikaela is a very entertaining ex-Viner who had a lot of popularity in her Vine days. She makes all types of videos including ones that involve her Kylie Lip Kit and Lipstick obsession, funny makeup challenges, and other random content. Oh, and she includes the best Vine references, which is great if you’re still missing the app (me too!).

3. Cody Ko
Cody is one of the funniest people I have ever watched, and is also an ex-Viner. Whether he’s reacting to cringe-worthy content with his friend Noel Miller in a series called “THAT’S CRINGE”, or commenting on problematic instagram videos and other YouTubers, you won’t be able to stop laughing at his content.

4. Jackie Aina
Even if you’re not into makeup videos, Jackie will win you over with her dazzling personality! There is never a dull moment when watching her unbiased makeup reviews or tutorials, and you will learn so much just from one video! She is a strong advocate for women of color’s representation in the beauty industry, and makes her opinions clear on brands who don’t sell diverse products. She even created her own foundation shades along-side Too Faced, which filled in what was missing from the Born This Way foundation line.

5. Danielle Marie Carolan
Danielle is someone to watch if you’re looking to get motivated when you’re feeling lazy. She mostly posts vlog-style videos that show her life as a college student, YouTuber, sorority member, and exercise queen. Somehow she’s always moving, and has perfected the art of managing time. She also posts monthly favorites, beauty tutorials, and advice videos as an additional bonus!

7. Aleigha Nicole
Aleigha has the most upbeat personality, and I discovered her when I was freaking out about going away to college for the first time. A lot of her videos cater to college freshman, or people who haven’t been to college yet, but she also has a lot of great videos for the older viewer, such as “How to Plan Your Day Effectively” and “20 Forgotten Ways to Manage Stress in College”.

Thataylaa is your go to girl for foundation recommendations. She has been through it all with her skin, experiencing oily skin, severe acne, Accutane, and dry skin post-Accutane, so she knows which foundations will make you feel your best. She does #FoundationFriday every Friday, and 15 Days of Foundation every few months where she posts a foundation review for fifteen days straight, so she’s tried everything!
