Top 5 Youtube Gurus for Asian Makeup

Updated on October 10, 2012

There are tons of Youtube "beauty gurus" out there. Some are awesome and some are not so great, but definitely props to them for putting their videos out there and providing those tips to the rest of us! I've posted my top 5 Youtube Gurus for Asian beauty, with an emphasis on those who help girls with monolids or hooded eyelids with eye makeup application. Enjoy!

2NE1 "Can't Nobody" CL Monolid Makeup Tutorial


Jen is a designer/freelance make up artisit who turned her attention to Youtube in 2008. She has small double eyelids which sometimes turns into monolids when they feel like it (I know how she feels!). She has a number of videos on applying monolid makeup including videos on how to reproduce the looks from K-Pop (Korean pop music) videos, in addition to a lot of other videos on general makeup tips. She updates frequently and her videos are always high quality and very clear. She does tend to use more higher end makeup and Asian brands in her videos.

YunaKim - Bulletproof Makeup


Yes, all her videos are in Korean, but they are excellent videos for the Asian ladies who want to know how to emulate that Korean glow that so many of those K-Pop stars have. She has a large number of videos on how to makeup application and hairstyles. She also applies makeup very carefully and slowly so it's easy to follow along even if you don't understand Korean.

Quick Everyday Look (Less than 10 Minutes!)


She is a makeup artist who has made a name for herself on Youtube. She specializes in using drugstore makeup products which is beneficial for those of us who cannot afford high end department store or Sephora makeup. Her videos are really clear and concise and she has a fun personality that makes you want to like her! She has many makeup videos focused on easy makeup looks for those who don't have a lot of time to dedicate to makeup.

Simple Smokey Brown Eyes (For Monolids)


The introduction to her videos are always very interesting and can be quite amusing. Hilarity aside, she has monolids and hence, most of her videos are focused on monolid eye makeup. Eyeliner are a staple in her makeup arsenal and you will see her using eyeliner in almost every video. She doesn't update as frequently as some of the other Youtube gurus, but it's definitely worth checking out if you have eyes similar to her.

Eyeshadow Techniques for Asian Eyes


Although she doesn't update frequently, the videos that she has posted are extremely helpful in understanding your eye shape. She goes over the different eye shapes present in all ethnicities and provides eye shadow application techniques that are most suited to your eye shape. Before you look at other makeup videos, take a look at her eye shapes video first!

About Me
