Let’s face it: we’re hopelessly—and sometimes secretly—addicted to their YouTube videos. They’re the oh-so-beautifully flawed, relatable and skin-savvy ladies that everyone wants to befriend and learn beauty tricks from. We love their confident honesty to show it as real as it gets, with 100% no Photoshop or makeup. They’ve tried it all—and they’re eager to share every last little detail of their experiences with us. And this combination of being engaging yet marvelously instructive is why we included them in this list.
Melissa may not be the biggest beauty guru, but she sure leads by example: at 61, she looks 40! This Beauty Vlogger, mother of 2 and grandmother of 7 has a couple of skincare secrets that simply work and keep her looking ageless. She’s certainly not afraid to share it all on her popular vlog My Skincare Journey and that’s why we just had to include her in our list of top YouTube skincare and beauty queens.
#6 Ingrid Nilsen
Tired of acne and hyperpigmentation? Checkout Ingrid’s My Skin Story video. Is super-dry, thirsty, flaky skin driving you nuts? She’s got you covered with her Tips For Healthy Hydrated Skin. The curious-minded 20-year-old YouTube skincare queen has millions of views because she simply gets it: she’s been through it all and has earned her spot as one of the most honest beauty gurus out there.
#5 Carli Bybel
If you can get passed her stunning beautiful blue eyes, you will notice Carli’s China doll-like skin. But this doesn’t come easy, as this beauty YouTuber shares on her Skincare Favorites + Dealing with Eczema video.
#4 Nicole Guerriero
Nicole is almost 30, but we wouldn’t be able to tell. She has certainly taken care of her poreless skin consistently and shows her millions of subscribers how she does it from her very own bathroom on her highly popular talk through Skincare Routine video.

She may be from the Netherlands, but she is HUGE in the U.S. and worldwide. This skincare queen may be only 20, but she’s been beauty vlogging for over a decade. She’s famous for mastering the art of perfecting one’s skin with makeup like no other Youtube beauty guru, but she will not hesitate to show her bare face. Nikkie won’t keep any of her skincare secrets from you—and she reveals them all on her Skincare Routine 2016 video.
#2 Tati Westbrook
Also known as GlamLifeGuru, Tati is famous for her tough tests of the most luxurious products in the beauty industry and sharing the results with her millions of YouTube fans. And what you get from Tati is the honest—and sometimes harsh—truth about these products in her video reviews. She is also a firm believer that skincare comes first and way above using any cosmetics. This 30-something YouTube celebrity and product expert is admired for both her wealth of knowledge and her even-toned complexion. That’s why any videos on her skincare routine or skincare tips such as Better Skin Overnight are so highly viewed.
#1 Michelle Phan
This young, successful makeup artist turned online entrepreneur generously shares her best advice with more than 8 million subscribers of her YouTube channel. Two of her most popular skincare videos include her Skincare Routine and her How to Get Rid of Dark Circles video. She just HAD TO be at the top. After all, it would be safe to say Michelle Phan almost founded the YouTube beauty community!
