Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

I'm sure y'all watch YT tutorials and even have some of your own favorite gurus you always turn to.

 

What's the one (or more than one) thing that those gurus do that you can never do in your day-to-day makeup routine?

 

For me, I simply cannot use a "pea-sized" amount of primer or foundation to cover my entire face like the gurus can, even when I'm going for a lighter coverage.

eyeliner, eye shadow and false lashes.  I really need help with my eye makeup skills lol

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

OMG, I struggle with putting on falsies, it's pathetic!

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

Oddly, while I can almost put lashes on clients with my eyes closed, putting them on myself is ridiculous!  I've succumbed to half lashes at this point Smiley Sad

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

A lot of gurus are pretty basic & consistent, so I'm kind of with Janine, that my skills are on par, if not a little more advanced than your regular run of the mill guru.  The one that I do love & is way more advanced & technical than most, would be Promise Phan.  She can transform into just about ANYONE, and that is one thing I cant do Smiley Wink  She def has my respect!

 

xo, Mia

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

I agree! I wish she posted videos more frequently.

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

My favorite to watch is Makeupbyalli.com! >(8D) 

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

I like how she doesn't push Sigma products in every video! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

my skills are on the good to better side, BUT one thing i can not do is a cream concealer contour!

they bascially use a full coverage concealer to cover and contour the face and then a brownish foundation on the cheekbones, sides of nose, and around the face but i tried it and i looked like i had a white mask with brown edges!

 

i wish i could learn an easy way to do this 

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

That's quite difficult, and I'm not sure if it'll work with my oily skin. Let us know when you perfect it Smiley Happy

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

I also agree with Janine and Mia. To me, youtube beauty gurus are ones that actually teach you and do tutorials or how to's. Not the ones who just do hauls, ootds, etc. Defiantly agree on how talented Promise Phan on YT is. She can do so many transformations that is so great. True talent there Smiley Happy I have learned tons from her!

 

So what can't I do that actual gurus can? Probably just special FX makeup. 

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

Promise is amazing! she does so many amazing transformations!

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

Have you seen Michelle Phan's Lady Gaga transformation? Quite impressive as well!

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

Yeah loved that video!

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

I agree with you sephoralovex.  Anyone can make a video of what they bought at Sephora, outfits, or a first impression of a product.  I have learned so much more from watching a few that I actually consider gurus.  I really like watching Wayne Goss's videos.  He is a genius.  He has so many tips and tricks.  He also will give you comparable products to higher ends products.  He has videos where he will show you all the things you can do with a MAC 217 brush.  He is amazing and I've learned so much from him.  I also really like Jaclyn Hill and Lauren Curtis.  Both beautiful ladies with lots of product and technique knowledge.  To get back to the question though...  I wish I could get my under eye area to "glow".  Maybe it's because I'm so fair that it just never looks like it does in the videos. 

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

It also helps that he's quite easy on the eyes and those winks... ahh! Smiley Wink Jaclyn Hill is definitely one underrated guru!

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

OMG Wayne Goss is amazing! If I could wish for one artist to make my skin look flawless everyday it would him hands down. 

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

i can not use a small compact mirror to do my whole face, maybe for lipstick touch ups but i don't see how they do it.

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

Good one! I didn't even think about it!

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

eye liner from afar, i need to be all up in my mirror lol

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

I'm always up close to my mirror with eyeliner and mascara -- also with my mouth half open! lol

Re: Things Youtube Beauty Gurus Do That I Can't

lol I'm usually 3 inches from my mirror when applying eyeliner and mascara, but my vision is bad without my glassess
