Your fave YouTubers' first ever makeup tutorials

2009 wasn't a good year for brows.

Most Popular

Watching YouTube tutorials nowadays, you would be forgiven for thinking that all YouTubers came out of the womb blessed with highlighted cheeks from the gods and brows that are permanently on fleek. Well, we went back and watched their first ever makeup tutorials, and all we can say is, wow. Time really is a healer…when it comes to brows anyway.

1. Tanya Burr

Where were you on 16th October 2009? We know where Tanya Burr was, she was sitting in Pixiwoo's studio filming a Blake Lively Gossip Girl tutorial and you know what, it's actually not bad. Those eyebrows tho…

2. Zoella

So Zoella's first actual makeup tutorial was with Sprinkle of Glitter. Their 'Spiffing Makeup Tutorial' isn't exactly an everyday look, but it's certainly different we'll give them that.

3. Jaclyn Hill

Do you remember when all YouTube tutorials used to have those cringy intros set to that same slightly techno beat? Well Jaclyn was no different. We're glad she learnt to zoom her camera out a bit though following her 'Kim Kardashian Holiday Makeup Tutorial'.

4. NikkieTutorials

Nikkie's 8 year old video actually comes with a disclaimer now. "This is my first video, and I was REALLY camera shy, and different from now." As dark as her lighting is, that bright green eyeshadow still manages to 'pop'.

5. Kandee Johnson

Kandee is the original Queen of YouTube and you have to go back 8 years to find her very first, very grainy video. As much as we love her, we really wouldnt recommend following her 'Defining your Eyebrows' video. Yep, those brows are definitely defined.

6. Fleur de Force

We love that Fleur both channeled her inner emo and supported her brother, by naming her first video after a Fightstar song. "She Smokes Like An Amethyst" is every bit as MySpace as you can imagine.

7. Velvetgh0st

The worst thing about being a YouTuber must be having a video documentary of your teenage brows. You, or your brows have come a long way from your 'Every Day Makeup Routine' Gabs.

8. Pixiwoo

Pixiwoo are professional makeup artists, so their makeup is never gonna be horrific but Sam's 'Barbie loves MAC makeup demo' is pretty intense. With the hyperlapse style and thumping techno beat, it honestly puts us a bit on edge.

9. Lucy and Lydia

We love the double L twins, but ngl the intro to their "Beyoncé makeup tutorial - Mrs Carter World Tour" TOTALLY CREEPED US OUT. That intro music is creepy AF and combined with the zoom too.

10. Samantha Maria

Our favourite thing about Sam's "Silver and Black Makeup Tutorial" is that in the description she adds that this could be a daytime, or a nighttime look. I mean gurl…really?
