It’s no secret—when it comes to beauty content, having someone who looks like you showing you the ropes around makeup helps a GREAT deal—especially when you have dark skin. Techniques may be similar but when it comes to things like foundation, concealer, and figuring out which colors work best on you, having a list of gurus who look like you is ideal. I often hear things like “there aren’t a lot of youtube makeup gurus with dark skin” and that’s just not true. We may not be in the majority, but we’re here!
So I nosed around and started to compile a list of Youtube makeup gurus with dark skin. I started out with obvious choices like Jackie Aina and Beauty by JJ but thankfully Youtube has some really good algorithms that once I clicked on a video that featured someone with dark skin, it suggested even more.
Now by NO means am I saying these are the ONLY Youtube makeup gurus with dark skin out there—I will add to this list as I find more and please feel free to add suggestions in the comments. This is just a start to help you find and support more Youtube makeup gurus with dark skin :)
Only order these are in are alphabetical order—these ladies have different makeup styles and video styles which is great because I’m sure you’ll find many to love.
Ha! I had to add myself to this list. I focused so much on the blog for so long because creating content for a blog and for video are two totally different beasts, but this year I carved out time to create videos for my channel. Now that I’ve gotten the swing of things with filming, editing, etc, expect more from me coming soon :)

Again, these are in alphabetical order and to save time and be able to add as many as possible, I’m listing a link to their channel along with their Youtube banner. You can click over and check them out and subscribe :)
Have any Youtube makeup gurus with dark skin to add? Tell me in the comments!
I’m so happy this post is getting shared so much! Thank you so much for the love and enthusiasm. I also love the comments with suggestions but please note that while I LOVE Black Youtubers like Ms Rosh Posh and Shirley B. Eniang, I wanted to specifically highlight Youtubers with dark skin. In no way do I want to take away from the amazing contributions those beauties have made over the years, but I wanted to make this list to show that there are SO many Youtube makeup gurus with dark skin out there. I often get comments saying “there aren’t a lot of people my complexion who offer makeup tips” so I made this list to be a guide for those with dark skin. Please also check the comments others have left as they have made suggestions for great Youtube makeup gurus to watch. Thanks for reading!
