Top Ten Most Annoying Things Beauty Gurus Do On YouTube

I love watching beauty videos, I really do. But the members could use some criticism. Since YouTube is such a fan-content creator relationship, it's 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

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.

Here's an average beauty YouTuber:
"Hey guys! How are you doing? LOL! You can't talk to me! Haha, well I guess we'll start the tutorial! So here we have some ADORABLE pink lipstick that I LOVE because it is sooo pink! Anyway you apply it to your lips, and here we go with that *flashes across the screen* now we will put on some foundation, ha-ha I recommend *product placement* now lets put on the eyeliner I just LOVE because it is super adorable! And that's it for our tutorial! I love you guys, like and subscribe for next week's video! " *crappy photos come across the screen

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

7 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.

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

These people are as deep as a dried up puddle.

8 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.

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

9 Wear too much makeup and call it "natural"

10 Repeat the same video ideas

Almost all beauty gurus do the same type of videos like how I do my makeup,expectations vs reality,or my morning routine crap. How these people have millions of subs is crazy considering a lot of people are somehow good at makeup nowadays. It's like you get the same generic makeup look. I mean understand it's hard to come up with new ideas since old and new people come in all the time with different stuff,but trying to apply makeup with random objects and these same videos is just the same.

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!,

The Contenders
11 Think they are so attractive when they aren't

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.

12 Use unprofessional background music

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.

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

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 an end all
16 Expectation vs. reality videos

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!

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

17 Copy other videos

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

18 Beg for subscribers

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

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 Be dumb on purpose
21 Talk too fast
22 Look at themselves in the view finder all the time

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?

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

23 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.
