5 Types of Beauty YouTuber Videos I Hate

I commonly do these posts when things get a little monotonous and/or product heavy on FiercePaint. Seems like over the past month and half or so, it has been too much about products. So here we go!

Enjoy!

I am subscribed to 363 channels on YouTube and they are predominantly beauty YouTubers. So I feel like I’ve seen my fair share of beauty videos. I have been watching YouTube since 2007, and after following beauty videos rather actively since 2012, I am really, REALLY sick of some type of videos. Especially by beauty YouTubers.

I have already expressed my disdain over some beauty “YouTuberisms” (if you would indulge me with that word) in a previous post. Should you want a laugh or a reality check, you can take a look (link here).

Let’s, as I usually do, go from the least annoying to the most.

#5 Sneaking in paid reviews

“…………..so in this tutorial, I’ll be using the brand X, miracle product Y…………………………”

Seriously, we KNOW you’re being paid to mention and use it. Why the pretense????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I prefer someone disclose that it is a paid review and be upfront about it. Worse still, if you keep doing it video after video! Honestly, we’re not dumb! Uggghhh!!!

#4 Eye makeup tutorials that are filmed about a kilometer away from the camera (oh, for those of you, unaware of the metric system, it is approximately 0.6214 miles).

An eye makeup tutorial NEEDS to be shot up close to show viewers how it is properly done. It’s not that difficult, unless of course you’re insecure of your capacity to properly blend out eyeshadow! In which case, just stick to reviews darling!

#3 Makeup channel with absolutely no variety

This is actually sad… Formulaic makeup videos with the same kind of makeup looks. Even sadder is when they claim to change up their look but end up with a shade of darker lipstick with everything else almost copied from their previous video. There are SO many halo eyes tutorials out there, why would you want 10 halo eyes makeup tutorials on your channel??? WHY???????

#2 Videos with unnecessarily long intros of just poses

Here’s where I actually start to get angry! 5 seconds of 5 of your poses is alright… 124853024803 poses at the beginning of your video is FUCKING STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously! I get it! It’s a properly executed smokey eye, with pink cut crease, double winged, red polka dot, unicorn land, ice cream, witchcraft level, ultimate perfection fantasy look! I GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get on with the damn tutorial already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#1 I’m back videos

Just imagine me rolling my eyes now… A long, absolutely disgusted eye roll.

If you can’t upload, don’t, and just pick up where you left off. Do a Q&A video, a GRWM or something of that manner so you can talk about your absence. In fact it was a recent, “I’m back” (yes, you should totally imagine me holding up air quote and gesturing it really slowly with eyebrows raised to my hairline) video that prompted this entire post!

You see, there’s something on top of it that totally pisses me off (yes, more than the video itself!!!); the reasons. Uggghhhh!!!!!!!

Uhm, I’m so sorry guys but I had some things going on the past couple of months, life, relationships…

Uhm, I’m so sorry guys but I was SOOOOO busy the past couple of months.

Uhm, I’m so sorry guys but I chipped my nail and it took me three whole months to deal with it!!!!!!!!!!

Uhm, I’m so sorry guys but my mascara ran out and I was looking for one for the past 6 months!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

PS: If you take offense, then that is your problem, not mine! Have a nice day!!!

  1. I thought that there are regulations around disclosing if the products are provided and if the content is sponsored?
    Aww your #1. Are you talking about Claire Marshall? 😛 She did an “I’m back” video recently! And haha, the excuses you listed! 😆

    • Yes, I guess if a video is entirely sponsored they need to mention it in their video but when they get paid to mention products then they can sort of sneak it in their description box. I remember getting this information from another YouTuber. I know of a Malaysian YouTuber who got a lot of heat from the comment section because she kept doing this in her videos; back to back to back.
      Hahaha, I don’t know Claire Marshall. It was actually a Malaysian beauty YouTuber.

  2. I love your attitude, lol. Okay so that last one I agree with 150%. I can’t STAND “I’m back” videos and/or blog posts. I have lots of blogs/YouTubers I love and I’ve made many friends through it… but I honestly just don’t give a shit if someone doesn’t upload or post for a month. There is a very good chance that I haven’t even noticed they weren’t there to begin with cause like you I just follow everyone and their mama! I don’t care so much about tutorials that look the same. There are only so many “normal” looking eyeshadow looks someone can do, and I think it’s nice to see how different palettes apply 🙂 Then again, I don’t really follow anyone who does tutorials though cause I just don’t enjoy them that much.

    • Hahaha! True that! When you upload, you upload, I’ll watch nevertheless.
      I kind of understand if someone is doing a look based on a palette that they review. That’s totally justified! MannyMUA is a prime example of the repeated makeup look offense. And like he said, if you don’t like it don’t fucking watch, so I went ahead and unsubscribed!!!
      I’d rather subscribe to someone like Nikkie because although, let’s be honest, she is another monotonous makeup video offender, she does the ever so successful funny and/or poignant videos that I love watching. I am actually on an unsubscribe stint. Whenever I see a video in my subscription that makes me think “Why the fuck is this the same as the last” OR “Why am I never watching your videos” I hit UNSUBSCRIBE!

      • I totally understand. YouTube is supposed to be relaxing, so if you’re getting stressed out just trying to find a video to watch it kinda takes the fun out of it. I usually go through and unsub from a butt-load of people every few months. OMG DIEEEEDD at your “so I went ahead and unsubscribed” comment, lol. I unsubbed from him a longgg time ago too. I never watched his makeup looks, it was the drama that was too much for me.

    • I don’t really care for YouTubers and/or any kind of star because I’d only ever fangirl for odissi dance gurus. So I don’t really care for them as people but I like Tati’s channel because a lot of her recommendations have worked for me. I love her for that… Does that make sense?

  3. 363… woahhh… I’ve followed almost the same exact peeps since day one and my no. 1 fave now is Tati.. she was actually the last on my list for quite sometime until she finally climb up to the top of my list.

    • Thank God I am usually a very zen person. So everything is good!
      I was actually subscribed to Tati when she had only about 40k subscribers. I hated her when I first subscribed but she has climbed to the top of my list too.

      • Haha glad your all good now.. And yeah Tati is really good.. Ingrid used to be my no.1 but now it seemed like she makes vids just because.. She doesn’t seem that dedicated as she used to. Well.. You might add 2 more on your list the you will have one channel a day for the entire year.. Haha
