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!!!
