9 Up-&-Coming Beauty Vloggers To Watch Right Now

I've been obsessively watching YouTube beauty tutorials for the last three years now. And in my time perusing the inner workings of the site's beauty community, I always notice the same big names pop up: Michelle Phan, Bethany Mota, and Ingrid Nilsen, to name a few.

All of their channels are incredible, of course — hence the insane followings — but there are plenty of YouTubers creating kick-ass content for slighter smaller fanbases who also deserve some love. So, for your viewing pleasure, we've rounded up nine of our favorite under-the-radar YouTubers and the gateway videos we think you should watch to get started. There's no doubt these bloggers (many of whom already have thousands of followers) will be hitting the million-subbie mark soon. So get ready for some serious binge-watching, ahead.

I Am Karen O

Subscribers: 446K

What To Watch First: If you're looking for a YouTuber with top-notch editing skills, look no further than Karen O. The vlogger's attention to detail can be seen in just about every video, but we especially love her tutorial on dying your hair pastel, which, we must admit, is inspiring us to reach for the lavender hair dye.

What To Watch First:
If you love Lisa Eldridge's soothing and addictive beauty videos, you'll also be a fan of Harry Makes It Up. Professional makeup artist Harriet Hadfield creates tutorials using her own face (as well as the faces of models) while sharing expert tips from years of working in the beauty industry. We especially love this Twiggy-esque tutorial on English singer and songwriter, Foxes.

Aja Dang

Subscriber Count: 105K

What To Watch First:
Dang admits that although she loves makeup, she's no expert when it comes to applying it. (And we love her honesty.) So in many of her makeup tutorials, she enlists the help of her friend, professional makeup artist Ermahn Ospina, who teaches Dang how to perfect her look while her viewers follow along with her.
