Dark-Skinned Beauty Gurus You Need to Follow

Who to Follow...

With the overwhelming amount of beauty gurus on YouTube these days, it's a surprise that some of us ladies still get left out! Beauty gurus with very dark skin tones typically haven't met that 1 million follower mark (except for a select few). And googling 'dark-skinned makeup tutorials' doesn't always give us videos where the vlogger is actually dark-skinned.

Considering the talent, social presence, and charisma of these five ladies, we feel they deserve to go well beyond a million subscribers. This is not an exhaustive list of all dark-skinned beauty vloggers on YouTube. This is a post dedicated to a few ladies that really stand out, yet don't seem to get the exposure on YouTube that they deserve! Keep reading to see the list of lovely ladies.

*The following list is not in ranking order*

This Nigerian-based makeup artist is gorgeous and is a total sweetheart!
