YouTube’s beauty vloggers are the modern day… Well, there’s nothing that you can compare them with besides, perhaps alchemists. So when a YouTuber puts their name on a product and tries their hand at developing something with both form and function, we like to sit up and pay attention.
Here are our top 10 YouTuber makeup collabs you need to know about!
To start this list off, we’ve chosen a YouTuber who’s doing a whole lot with a little bit of time. As an active member of the US military, Lynn combines her passion for utility and fashion, so it makes sense that she has over half-a-million subscribers, earning her a collaboration with BH Cosmetics. There’s nothing more unique than a beauty guru in the military. Missy Lynn embodies that wholeheartedly. Missy Lynn x BH Cosmetics is a palette that suits girls with medium to deep skin tones and has two highlighters as well as six eyeshadows.

Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and Angel is the embodiment of that fact! His clients include models like Chanel Iman and Tinashe amongst others.

She and Angel Merino teamed up with PUR Cosmetics in order to create and later launch an amazingly ambitious project; a cruelty-free collection called Royalty which will officially launch on the 28th of November.
Good taste can actually take you to places you’ve never dreamed of; at least that’s the case with Lights. ColourPop and Lights have collaborated before, but this collabo is one of her best. The shadows are more buttery and the colors seem to just glide on the skin.
