How To Become a Beauty Guru On YouTube

Being a beauty Guru is so much fun. Anybody can do it, all you need is a little patience and passion. In this lens, we will go through what you'll need to make a quality YouTube video and advice on how you can succeed.

I encourage all of you with a passion for beauty or anything else to try, it can be the beginning of a new chapter in your life.

Best Camera for filming a Makeup Tutorial On YouTube

The camera that DulceCandy, Allthatglitters21 and other popular beauty gurus use

It is important to make quality videos because watching a video with poor lighting and bad sound is annoying and people won't bother watching. So you'll need a decent camera. starting with a beginner camera like the Canon T4i is a very good option. Cameras from computers make crappy videos.

Best Camera For Filming Youtube Videos - CanonT4i Rebel Camera

This is perfect for filming makeup tutorials because you can look at yourself while you are filming with the flip sreen. This is the best camera for beginners because it is easy to use and gives amazing quality videos. Many popular gurus still use the previous one, the T3i. It is the one I have and I am very happy with it and will not get another one

Vixia Camcorders - Elle Fowler's Camera on YouTube

This is the one that Elle from Allthatglitters21 use and i love the quality of her videos.

Lights you will need to film a YouTube Video

This is even more important than the camera. You need proper lighting for good quality videos. I bought mine here on Amazon. I did a lot of research about this and this was the cheapest option I found for a professional product.

How To Set Up For A Youtube Video

Set the camera on a tripod.The lights must be facing you, no lights coming from behind you. If you make a makeup tutorial, you will need a little lighted mirror in front of you. just so that the camera does not show the mirror.

A backdrop behind you for a clean effect.

Make Your YouTube Beauty Video

Reviews, Outfit of the day ,makeup collections, room tour, makeup tutorials, hauls, hair tutorials, fitness advice, anything, you just need a little imagination and a fun personnality. Keep in touch with the latest fashion trends.

Watch other beauty gurus to see how they make their videos and what they talk about.

Always look nice for filming, don't give too much personal information away.

You have to be tough because you will get haters as you grow.

Advertize you videos but don't spam or sub4sub it will not get you anywhere.

Be patient, it can take a year at least to get a decent amount of subscribers.

Learn a little about CEO for tagging properly so that people will find your videos.

Be yourself and have fun

      It's on my bucket list to piece together a home photography and music recording studio where I could freelance in both photography and sound editing/engineering. Great tools and tips here!
