New Youtube Beauty Gurus: Advice & Tips to Succeed!

Friday night I had a HUGE conversation with a lot of you on advice for New Youtubers, and a little backstory on the things I think help make a Beauty Youtuber successful. I got motivated to make a video about it, and wanted to share some of the things you guys mentioned!

I don’t want to make this a 100 tweet long post, but if you have something to add, post a tweet and add #newguru at the end of it, and then people can search for that term and find it :)

    OMG, I’m one of the tweets you screenshotted! Hi, me! (And for the record, the vid wasn’t preachy at all. It hit all the right notes, at least in my opinion!)

    • Vijaya

      I meant to say that it’s never constructive criticism, not ‘not never’. Double negative fail. xP

  • Renske

    OMG, This is the best video ever I have seen about this subject! Thank you very much!

  • jessie

    Yor hair looks awsome in this vid. Something new you’ve done?

    Tnx for this vid!!

  • Connie De Alwis

    Excellent video! It’s definitely saddening that many new bloggers or youtubers out there are in it for free stuff.
    Anyway, you look gorgeous! Love your skin :)

    Totally off topic… I love the color(s) on your eyes. What are you wearing. It is so perfect for summer. Natural yet shimmery.

    Well, thank u Leesha! I´m from Brazil… and the brazilians gurus only wants to be famous and be better than others… and it really sucks! I´m really happy to see a real good guru talking like u did and helping the new gurus.
    I´ve started mt YT channel inspired by you. And someday i wish i can be as talented as u.

    (Sorry for the bad english!)

    This was a great video! I watched it last night as soon as you tweeted it :) Just this morning I got one of those comments on my blog and was like, woah. LOL Never thought I’d have to look out for that, but I guess even blogs with only a few readers will have attention whores!

  • Michelle Tiu

    So true!!! I hate that a lot of new vloggers and bloggers can be bought.

  • Mandy

    Hi Leesha!!! What you did at your wall? Is awsome!

  • Max McQueen

    Loved the tips! <3

    hi leesha,
    I wany to say that I like you interenet show and I learned a lot from how you made, and one of the things it was the smoky eye (I always wanted to wear makeup like that style and I did not know how).
    so I have an idea: do a tutorial on Make Up as a Barbie, I thought about it last night and it would be lovely.
    hope you can do that,

  • Emily

    AHH! I’m so excited that you’ve posted all of this advice. I totally just signed up for Beautylish and will make a channel sooooon! =D

  • sarah x

    hey im starting out my own beauty blog, with reviews on nail/hair products, nail designs, makeup looks, and all things beauty related! would really love it anyone could take the time and check out my tumblr and follow me :)

  • Pretty Gossip

    I’m totally late to the party, but LOVED the video. You are wise beyond your years pretty lady!~

    Hey Leesha,

    I think its also important to share the editing software a NewTuber (could) should use. I, myself, have a MacBook Pro so the Apple Gods already nicely preloaded wonderful editing software. iMovie is an awesome application to edit and add effects. What do you suggest for those who do not have a MAC?
