For this week’s 5 Things Friday, I have a list of some of the people I think you guys might like to check out. Some are pretty popular, but nowhere near the levels of Estée, Ingrid, Anna, et al. I was going to include some bloggers I’d been enjoying recently, too, but I thought it was better to go with videos for now, just because it might be a bit of an overload. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
I found Karima McKimmie (or Shameless Fripperies) through a tutorial for the SUQQU Sumiredama quad, which I linked below, and have been hooked ever since. Her looks are beautiful and elegant—she calls them “conceptual”—and she favors luxury brands and her makeup taste is on the pricier, hard-to-find side. I love all her looks and her face is stunning!

I’m not even sure how I found Katy, but I really enjoy watching her videos. Her type of makeup is a little bit more heavy-handed and adventurous than what I would normally wear, but they’re fun to watch as she’s pretty silly but also informative. Subscribe
OK, so here’s the kicker: I don’t understand any of her videos. That’s because Coline is French. I found her when I was looking for video reviews for Kjaer Weis, and I was pretty much hooked. (I studied a bit of French in college… so I understand very, very little.) Her style is cool & effortless and I WANT TO BE HER. Subscribe
OK, so. LOL. Taylor doesn’t technically make “beauty videos,” but her tutorials—”Friendzone Tutorial” or “Feminist Makeup Tutorial”—are hilarious. “Then, using the ashes of the bridge you’re burning, create an elongated cat eye shape that follows the natural contours of your eye.” They’re pretty useful, too, to be honest.

Ashley’s videos are well-edited, thorough, and informative. Her style and demeanor is really, really mellow, but I like her taste for everyday, work-appropriate makeup, with a mix of high-end, drugstore, and natural/green products. Subscribe
