Makeup Tutorials to Recreate


The first YouTube tutorial I ever watched was also Tanya Burr’s first foray into the online video space – I searched for a Serena Van Der Woodsen makeup [Gossip Girl forever], and up popped Tanya. Ever since then, I have come to YouTube for inspiration, and the wonderful gurus out there never let me down.

Today I wanted to share my favorite tutorials that I love to recreate and try out with products I already have laying around. Some are old favorites that I have continued to reference over the past year or so, and some are very new, and very perfect for spring. I’ve broken them up into day and night looks, but they are all still very wearable to me, and very my style.

Enjoy and let me know your favorite makeup tutorials in the comments!

    Tanya was one of the first people I watched on YouTube for makeup tutorials. Shortly after, I discovered Pixiwoo. I love their tutorials!

    Great list! I know I’ve seen many of these because I’m subscribed to most, but I do love to go back and rewatch some of my favourites. Another great MA on youtube is Sharon Farrell – she does everything from really wearable to glam!
