Top Ten Most Annoying Things Beauty Gurus On YouTube Do

I love watching beauty videos, I really do. But the members could use some criticism. Since YouTube is such a fan-content creator relationship, its understandable that I would tell them how to make their videos more pleasant to watch. I've seen the same formula for every big beauty vlogger and I do not want to hate. But I'm simply tired of some of these trends.

The Top Ten

1 Overdo the cutesy

This fake personality however is what most youtube bloggers or other you tubers do in general. Not all of them, but most have this either super-duper loud and excited personality and talk none stop, than there's this as it is here mentioned the overdue cutesy, and also I really do not like those who can over exaggerate their seriousness and "angry personality" that it doesn't even necessary seem like it's just a character that they do on youtube (like Spechie for an instance)

I don't mind a naturally bubbly personality, but there is something very off about people who just overdo the teeny-bopper, cutesy thing. I find it thoroughly impossible that 70% of beauty vloggers happen to have the same personality. A lot of YouTubers are difficult to watch because they just seem so false. Truth be told, it puts up a wall between the content creator and the fan. Be yourself in the videos, I'd really embrace the diversity. - keycha1n

It is the same with anything. You need a genuine, relatable personality. - gemcloben

All they ever is try to be cute. Well, they aren't cute at all. - EpicJake

2 Talk for five minutes before giving you the information the video promised

I just skip the intros. They're usually rambles of them being overly ditsy. I'm not saying you can't interact with fans by talking to them, but these are wholly unnecessary. Especially considering they spend five or more minutes explaining what they're going to do in the video despite knowing you just read the title and know exactly what they're going to be doing in the video. - keycha1n

I skip the talking in the begining. I'm not going to waist 2 mins of u talking about what u did today.

Youtuber: "How to get laid and still look pretty and not fat from it"
5 minutes later ", this protein shake is so good, like, it's made from cauliflower and butt juice. I just got my weave done and colored and I got these starbucks nutella ugg boots iphone 7 from shamazon, yay! So fun! Should I cut my hairrr or naw, post your opinions in the comment section below"

3 Make too many sponsored videos

I know I know, you have to get paid. I really get that. After all, its your job. But NEVER try to hide sponsors or deceive us. Because it will not work. Ever. And please only endorse products you truly like. I remember I used to be able to watch a video or review without having to scroll through the description to see if it was sponsored. I miss reliable opinions, basically. - keycha1n

Its great that you're so great of a YouTuber that big corporations want to advertise with you, but please just know that we don't want you to just be another advert.

4 Not put effort into their videos

Either by uploading once a month or having bland and quickly thrown together videos. I think that the continued spark is essential if you wish to draw in viewers because they will be subconsciously attracted to that. - keycha1n

Gaming videos are of much higher quality. People laugh at YouTube gamers but they all work so hard on their videos, but beauty gurus see not to. Concidence?

5 Have the same, generic outfits

Some of them consider themselves beauty gurus but they make videos that hardly relate to beauty. They use the same songs that only occur on the iTunes most downloaded list and have the same style like crop tops high waisted shorts sneakers, drink Starbucks and try to be awkward and quirky. - HappyFlower

My main problem with the beauty community on YouTube is that fact that so many of them are just carbon clones of the trends going on and of each other. It's why I appreciate YouTubers like iamkareno; they don't wear outfits, they style them. Have your own unique tastes because there's nothing more valuable you can offer to the public. Trust me. I want to see YOU when I see what you wear. - keycha1n

They all dress exactly the same! It's just some Brandy Melville crap, white converse, and 400 bracelets

6 Try too hard to be "dorky" or "nerdy"

I get pretty annoyed when they're like, "I'm such a nerd! Lol." - theevilsquiddancer

Straight up annoying. You can easily sort the fake fans from the people that genuinly enjoy certain "nerdy" stuff. Most beauty gurus fake it to the point that they look awkward.

Oh I am so tired of this. I just... Agh. Its annoying. I'm sorry. It just comes off awkward and forced. - keycha1n

And this is why I watch genuine nerds *cough cough dan and phil

7 Use and wear only wildly expensive brands

As a student with no income it's hard to afford these products, but I'm still into fashion and make up and all things pink. It's extremely disappointing when you think you've found someone honest you can look up to who can give you real advice with affordable products. It seems to me that they aren't trying to sell anything because they know a lot of these products are expensive, but rather advertise with a hidden agenda.

I really hate when they do that.

I despise how they pimp out a glamous expensive lifestyle knowing their fans are usually poor or cannot afford to buy those products

Brandy Melville, Cottonon, Vs pink, Nasty gal etc. All of those clothing stores are highly expensive, most middle class people can't afford it.

8 Come off as extremely shallow

Its simply true; a good portion come off really basic. I get it, the bubbly personality sells and looks good, but I know there's something below the surface and I'm sure your viewers would respect you if you spoke more intimately. - keycha1n

That's because they are shallow. It boggles the mind how much people can blabber over so little. - PositronWildhawk

9 Wear too much makeup and call it 'natural'

Most beauty gurus

how to do an effortless, everyday, messy, lazy bun in 75 steps

How to poop in 48383 steps.
Step 1: Die
Step 2:... - AlphaQ

10 Repeat the same video ideas

I agree one youtuber LITERALLY DOES THE EXACT SAME MAKEUP LOOK EVERY SINGLE DAMN VIDEO AND HAS ABOUT 4 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS! like what. I'm sure she is talented but wont make any videos of doing anything original, that is why I like to watch nikkie and james (and probably other people that I can remember rn lmao) because they do creative things and new challenges and that is what makes it interesting.

You know.. The "morning routine"'s and the "everyday makeup"'s. I'd like to see something fresh and original-maybe it'll click!

This is not to say I don't enjoy those videos-I do-but just that those are not the confines. Think outside the box!, - keycha1n

This is like the most accurate one. Most of them even have more than 1 million subs or at least 300k subs. That doesn't make sense.

The Contenders

11 Use unprofessional background music

A lot of them use that annoying "happy" tunes. You know, the ones that have a ukulele and happy whistling that promotes unicorns, rainbows and all things girly fluffy. Utterly nauseating

I swear the playlist for every video is stuff on the top 40's hit charts. I don't mind particularly since it fits the traditional format of flashy, energetic videos, but its just that it makes it seem unprofessional. A classy, subdued soundtrack (electronic songs tend to be the best for background music) would be very pleasant every now and again. - keycha1n

Yes, agreed. The background music that they use in their videos just makes me cringe. I'm like: "Wow. Is THAT music? "

Play something like Panda or 679 or 2016 rap songs. - AlphaQ

12 Think they are so attractive when they aren't

Disgusting gurus like James Charles, Jeffree star

IKR? There's a beauty guru that I really hate. She's so egoist and thinks her style is the best. She talks bad about people who doesn't like her. She thinks she's so special.

I totally agree. I have 1 in mind 2

13 Make their videos really bright

They all have the same bright, pastel/popping colour and lighting scheme. I'm getting headaches from it

14 Act spoiled

Yeah, it's really annoying. I want to slap them when they do that.

Yes, I also see 'spolit-behaviour' amongst these grown ADULT people! And just *so much make-up! *

15 Talk about going back to drugstore products like it's a bad thing or a end all.
16 Expectation vs. reality videos

I think that some of them are entertaining, but they shouldn't have 6 different ones. It just gets annoying after awhile.

These videos get on my nerves. Almost every beauty guru does this, especially the ones about high school like most these girls are in their twenties. Grow Up!

17 Beg for subscribers

And sadly, that's what they get. Subscribers that they don't need! - kaitlynrad11

18 Copy other videos

Some of them also steal ideas. Ugh, hate that.

Yeah. Their collabs are the same

19 Put on way too much makeup!

A lot of the time these girls are crazy pretty, and they spoil their faces with tons of makeup piled on to their poor faces.

20 Talk too fast
21 Look at themselves in the view finder all the time

Yes! They get so caught up looking at themselves, that they stop speaking for some time.

I find it so annoying that you're watching a video of this person on YouTube and they just can't stop looking in their view finder, common now, who are you adressing

Why are they always messing around with their “hair”, oops what I really mean’t was their hair extensions? Some of these girls forget what they were talking about, because they were distracted by their hair. Is it insecurity?

22 Talking in 3rd person
23 Be dumb on purpose

I hate it

24 Poorly edit
25 Try to act goofy/funny to seem interesting

Have you ever noticed that they do random goofy things while they're putting on makeup? Like singing or wiggling their makeup brush and making a quirky face quickly before using it. That bothers me so much.

Ikr? They're not funny at all...

26 Little poses or dances

Like when they start the video, you just spend a minute of watching them pose with the look. They try to act serious and sexy with it and it's hard to take serious

Every time they do the next toppic they have to shoot a full clip of them using it, I get why your showing you using it, but then they do the head bob thing where they pose like get on with the video

27 Make stupid faces into the camera

Sticking there tongue out and dragging their lips with there finger is seriously really annoying, like put on the lipstick and go

28 Overuse of same adverbs

Saying "really really" in every sentence. We get that you like something but if you use it multiple times in your video, it loses value and it's annoying. Find a new adverb or just give a basic description.

29 Make fun of other people


30 Get full when they eat a salad and a cute little Starbucks drink
31 Being super loud randomly! it hurts your ears
32 Whine about a wrong Starbucks order

James Charles be like dat...

33 Think their life is so great

True... Hate that

34 Pretending to love dumb items.

Whenever they're doing a tutorial, there seems to be an obscure object that they use 'everyday' and 'need to have'. When no one in their right minds would ACTUALLY have it.

Example: guys I use this satin galaxy beauty blender EVERYDAY. It's one of my all time favorites.
