What I've Learned From Beauty Gurus

I started watching Zoella about five months ago and discovered I really liked her videos. Then, in December I started watching missglamorazzi. This brought a slight obsession in recent weeks with beauty videos. So I decided to share with you everything I've learned about how to make my life better and self prettier from all these wonderful "beauty gurus" on YouTube.

1. Scented candles are necessary in every room, especially those from Bath and Body Works
2. Rooms should be clean, organized and nicely decorated with candles and flowers
3. Lush is an amazing place
4. So is The Body Shop
5. As well as Bath & Body Works

Besides that amazing life advice, beauty gurus have many suggestions for good face/body/hair products. Since I really only watch missglamorazzi and Zoella on a regular basis I am going to summarize the products they rave about most and products I see everywhere on blogs and Youtube in general. I have yet to try one of these products, though. I'm just hoping these beauty gurus know what they're talking about. 

Missglamorazzi's (Ingrid Nilsen's) most talked about products:

LUSH's Cupcake Face Mask

LUSH's Whipstick Lip Balm. I did see a video where Tanya Burr talked about this product, I believe. It smells like chocolate orange apparently which sounds amazing.

LUSH's Ocean Salt Scrub. Joey Graceffa has also talked about this in his What Makes Me Beautiful! video.

LUSH's Solid Shampoo.

LUSH's Soap (She talks about the Miranda soap in almost all of her LUSH Hauls.) I actually smelled this the last time I went to LUSH and I really liked it, plus it's really colourful.

Neutrogena's Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask. This is another Joey Graceffa suggestion and being honest, he has the most beautiful skin I have ever seen. Ingrid always has nice skin too so I think I'll have to try this stuff. Ingrid doesn't talk about this product a lot, but she said it's an old favourite of hers from when she had very acne prone skin and she still uses it occasionally if she happens to break out.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

Origins' Face washes

Jouer's Tinted Moisturizer and Bronzers. She talks about this brand a lot and the tinted moisturizer was her favourite foundation/face covering product of 2013. She's mentioned it in a few of her videos whilst
she was wearing it and her skin looked absolutely flawless.

NYC's Bronzer. I actually have a peachy bronzer/cheek colour from NYC and I'm always very impressed with it. Ingrid always says they're the best drugstore bronzer and they are really cheap (like $3-5).

MAC Naked Pigment Eyeshadow. This was one of her favourite products of 2013 and she raves about it constantly.

Body Shop's Honey Bronzer. Essiebutton also suggested this and I believe that is where Ingrid first heard of it.

Nars eye primer. She uses this almost everyday and has for a long time.

Maybelline Color Whispers Lipsticks/butters/lip thingy.

Nars Orgasm/Laguna Blush/Bronzer Duo.

Bobbi Brown's Apricot Blush

NYX Lipglosses

Macadamia Nut hair products (especially the deep conditioning hair mask thing)

NuMe hair stylers

Zoella's Faves:

LUSH's bath products and massage bars.

Nars blush, bronzer, concealer and lipgloss. She uses a lot of Nars products

Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation and concealer

Products that every Beauty Guru Raves About:

Covergirl's 3-in-1 foundation. I've seen so many blog posts about this stuff and also Ingrid has talked about it.

Maybelline Color Tattoos. Especially in Bad to the Bronze as both Ingrid and Essiebutton have talked about this.

Urban Decay's Naked Palettes. I haven't seen one bad thing about these eyeshadows on the internet. They are like the holy grails of eyeshadow

Revlon Lip Butters. Everyone has talked about them.

Nars Creamy Concealer. I know I mentioned it already in Zoella's list. Zoe is very particular about concealer and you will see why in the Everyday Makeup Routine video above. I put this in both lists just because Zoe talks about it a lot but other beauty gurus really love this.

These are just things I've noticed on beauty blogs and vlogs in general and products that are raved about specifically on Zoe and Ingrid's channels. These are just my observations, there are other products that they rave about a lot and I got the information of these products the best I could so some of them may be incorrect.

I hope you all enjoyed this summary of all these products that are all over beauty blogs and vlogs and ones that are raved about intensively on specific channels. I always really didn't think I would like the whole beauty guru scene but I'm so in love with all these YouTubers' and bloggers' content, so I really suggest you check them out, even if you're unsure about it.
