These 5 are my favorite MUA’s on YouTube I have learned a great deal about makeup from them, from casual back to school look tonight out party look, you can find every look on their channels. They have also taught me which products to go for according to the type of skin and skin tone and because of that, I was able to invest on good products without wasting my money on products that were not suitable for my skin. Along with makeup tutorials, they have videos about skincare regime for daytime and nighttime as well following them has improved my skin texture and appearance. Whenever the new product is launched I do watch their product reviews first to ensure if the new launch is worth the purchase. Also when I go for makeup shopping I try to use more and more their discount codes to save some bucks on my purchase and I have saved a lot through these codes on cosmetic items and skin care items as well.
