Like most beauty lovers, binge-ing YouTube makeup tutorials is our guilty pleasure. In fact, we have YouTube to thank for everything from our obsession with DIY nail art to overnight hairstyles. Plus, watching beauty vloggers on repeat has helped us master winged eyeliner, perfect our complexion and become experts on doing a full face in five minutes or less. Considering there are thousands (millions? zillions?) of videos on YouTube, we wanted to take a minute to highlight some of our current favorites. These makeup tutorials for beginners cover all the basics.
