I LIVE for YouTube videos in my copious amounts of spare time. Here are the top five makeup influencers I follow religiously, as should you. They're hilarious, inspirational, creative and fun, amongst other adjectives I could think of to describe them. Check them out the next time you have some downtime or want to change up your going-out look!

1. Jeffree Star

Jeffree is hilarious, boujee AF, and he knows how to apply a mean contour. Also, he's honest in his opinions of brands, and he's conscientious that not everyone has like $5 million and can't afford super expensive makeup. His videos range from product testing to techniques, and he's definitely someone to check out if you want a laugh!

2. James Charles

OK come on now, how perfect is he? He's funny, kind, genuine with his followers and bomb at makeup. He's creative in looks like this, and he brings out his artistic side in his shoots. Plus, uh, HELLO, SISTERS, he's so fun and gives great advice. 10/10 recommend watching him.

3. Huda Kattan

If you've ever heard of HudaBeauty, then you know who Huda Kattan is. She's absolutely gorgeous, as is her makeup, and she gives bomb tutorials of how to do pretty much anything you've ever wanted to. She still runs her blog, as well as her YouTube channel, and she owns her business!

4. Rihanna

While Rihanna was known first for her music, her new makeup line Fenty is taking the world by storm. Her highlighter is especially pigmented, and her lip gloss is known for being one of the best on the market for the price. From personal experience, I can attest to the quality of her brand — it's the real deal.

5. Nikkie de Jager

Based in the Netherlands, Nikkie de Jager has a huge fan base, and her YouTube videos are highly influential. She does some crazy, wild tutorials, but she's entertaining, and she also gives reviews of products as well. Check her out if you don't know who she is!

    12 Tips Before Getting Your First Eyelash Extensions

    I know you are in the middle of making your appointment, but here are a few pointers.

    3944

    If you are like me, you are super hesitant about trying new things in the beauty realm. I have finally tried lash extensions and can easily say I am obsessed. 10/10 recommend! If you are considering getting yours done, here are a few pointers!

    1. Shower before your appointment.

    This seems logical, but I wasn't aware. Luckily, I did shower before my appointment and wasn't shocked when my lash tech said, "don't get them wet for 24 hours."

    2. Not all extensions are over the top. There are lash extensions for EVERYONE. 

    I was super worried my lashes were going to be crazy over the top and I would look crazy during my runs. I asked my lash tech and she gave me a set of natural lashes. You get to pick the style of lashes you want! You can get them for fuller volume or just a natural look. There is a style of lashes for everyone!

    3. Yes, they are SO much better than mascara and strip lashes.

    I was already a firm hater of mascara, so lash extensions didn't have to work hard to win me over. As for strip lashes, I use to love putting them on for a night out or date night. It seemed as if a makeup look was not complete without them. Now, I wear less makeup on a night out because I feel as if my lashes really just pull the simplest of looks together.

    4. Not all lash techs will charge you an arm and a leg.

    One of my favorite nail salons offers lash extensions, STARTING at $100. Luckily, if you live near a college campus, the chances are high that a student is certified to do them and charges well under $100. I get mine done for $60 and leave happy with the work done every time.

    5. You can go bare-faced and still feel flawless.

    I have never woken up and felt so gorgeous right after stumbling out of bed. Lash extensions really give you an extra boost of confidence in feeling like you don't even want to bother with putting on makeup for the day.

    6. You will need to wash your face in the sink, not the shower. 

    You can get your lashes wet, but water coming forcefully out of a showerhead directly onto your lashes is not good for them. Makeup wipes and a careful face cleaning in the sink will take care of all your facial needs while avoiding causing damage to your lashes. I still use face masks when I have mine done!

    7. Check the ingredients in your makeup removing products. 

    To remove makeup, I LOVE using coconut oil. If you have lash extensions you should NOT use coconut oil. In fact, when your down to the last few lashes and are ready for them to come off, use coconut oil on a cotton ball and gently rub it along your lash line. Certain oils breakdown the glue used for lash extensions, so be aware of them before using them on your eye makeup.

    8. Some people will truly believe they are your natural lashes. 

    Here are some responses for their inquiries:

    "I wish."

    "Lash extensions, 10/10 recommend."

    "I woke up like this."

    9. You will need to sleep pretty. 

    I have a tendency to sleep on my face. A tendency which I soon broke after getting lash extensions. You will have to learn to stay on your side or lay on your back so you don't rub all of your extensions out in the night.

    WARNING: Be extra cautious on a night out where adult beverages were consumed. Ruining your lashes by drunkenly rubbing or sleeping on your face may cause heavy lash-loss.

    10. They last about two to three weeks.

    I have found that mine stay in pretty thick up until about 2.5 weeks. If you are careful, they could definitely still look flawless pushing week three.

    11. They aren't damaging to your real lashes.

    As long as you go to a licensed lash tech and aren't rubbing your face or pulling your lashes out, your natural lashes are safe and sound!

    12. Once you get them done, you'll be going back for more.

    It's not an addiction. And if it is, I don't think there is an issue to being addicted to feeling great about your lashes!

    Making your lash appointment now? I figured.
