Whether you’re a YouTube star making endless makeup tutorials or one the ones watching from the comfort of your bed (all fingers point to us), something that connects us all is our undying love of makeup and willingness to try any new products that hit the market. Unfortunately, though, buying and trying new makeup goodies can get a little pricey. That’s why we decided to stalk the channels of some of our favorite male beauty vloggers, who are currently killing it in the beauty space, to help us stay informed about what products are actually worth buying, learn how we should be applying them for the best results and what the final look should resemble (even though it always feels like a little bit of a struggle to make our look as perfect as a professional YouTuber). Naturally, we watched way more video tutorials than we originally intended to find out what cult-fave beauty products male beauty vloggers are obsessed with. See all six product suggestions, ahead.
Male Beauty Vlogger #1: Gabriel Zamora
At the start of the new year, Gabriel Zamora blessed us with a 2017 review featuring a recap of makeup faves. Gabriel walks us through a fun copper eyeshadow makeup routine, which includes the NYX Professional Makeup Slide on Pencil, which he loves for its shiny, highly pigmented formula.
Male Beauty Vlogger #2: Thomas Halbert
In a current favorites (and most hated) makeup review, Thomas Halbert gushes about how much he loves Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover. “This is the best makeup removing thing in the world. It just melts down all of my makeup and all of the glitter I put on. I can’t say enough good things about it — it’s literally legendary.”
Male Beauty Vlogger #3: James Charles
For a back-to-school makeup tutorial Makeup.com editors wish they experienced sooner, James Charles walks us through a quick, subtle-glam, 10-minute drugstore makeup routine. After helping us achieve the glow of our dreams with the NYX Professional Makeup Highlight & Contour Palette, Charles finishes the look with the cult-fave NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream in the neutral shade of London.
Male Beauty Vlogger #4: Manny MUA
In a video we can all appreciate — “The Top 10 Makeup Products at the Drugstore” — Manny MUA walks us through all the affordable products he’s in love with, including Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer. “This concealer is a nice medium coverage, but you can build it up to be more full coverage. It blends out so nicely and doesn’t crazy-crase on me.”
Male Beauty Vlogger #5: The Beauty Boy
Jake-Jamie, AKA, The Beauty Boy, partnered with L’Oréal Paris to create a flawless, full-coverage base tutorial for both men and women. In the video, he uses L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation after priming with the L’Oreal Paris Mattifying Base and concealing with the Infallible Total Cover Correcting Kit.
Male Beauty Vlogger #6: Ryan Potter
Makeup lover Ryan Potter shade some of his faves in his “Full Face of Drugstore Makeup” video. One product he mentions is the E.l.f Cosmetics Luminous Blush in Glowy Rose. “That’s really really pretty. That’s like a super glowy blush,” he says in awe of his own look. The best part? You can score it for six bucks.
