There are a lot of successful beauty gurus on YouTube. If you like beauty too, and want to become a beauty guru on youtube, read this article to find out how.
Make an account. Pick a good username. Pick something catchy, that is easy to remember. (Avoid long strings of numbers.) Err on the side of being not too silly. When you get a little older (or get more subscribers) you might regret it. You can never go wrong with using your first name and then something that describes your channel, such as BeautyByRachel or TiffanyNails.
Jazz up your channel page. Add a nice background, and modules like recent activity. A good way to get views is to set the video on your channel to autoplay.
Start subscribing to other gurus! Watching other guru’s videos is a great way to learn about what types of videos are successful.
Start making videos. Start with easy tutorials and keep them short and sweet! Then edit them using iMovie (Mac) Or Windows Movie Maker (PC). Make sure to have good lighting (sunlight or a bright inside light) and good audio. Speak clearly and loudly. Plan your videos out ahead of time. Keep them at around 6-8 minutes (or shorter), and try not to ramble, but instead be to the point and discuss the video topic. Try to make a new video every one to two weeks.
Tag your videos when you upload them, and fill in the description box. This is how new viewers will find your videos, because they will find them through searching YouTube. Use a descriptive title as well. So instead of “My Hair Routine,” you should use, “My Curly Hair Wet Styling Routine for Shiny, Defined Curls.”
Add your videos as ‘Video Responses’ to videos that are similar in topics and have lots of view.
