Type the phrase 'beauty tutorial' into YouTube and you'll find thousands of beauty buffs on hand showing you how to create everything from celebrity make-up looks to sharing their opinions on the latest skincare products. Want to know which beauty gurus really know their stuff? We've rounded up some of our favourite UK beauty YouTubers whose tips and tricks will make you sit up and take notice.

Tanya Burr: Pixie2Woo

Trained make-up artist Tanya Burr has quickly become something of a YouTube mega star with the likes of Grazia and Elle magazine featuring her amongst their beauty pages. The 23-year-old has created hundreds of videos showing you how to recreate the make-up looks of a host of famous faces from Kim Kardashian's smoky eyes and chiselled cheekbones to Lana Del Rey's signature 1960s inspired look. We love her day to night make-up tutorial where she creates an easy but glamorous look using high street beauty products.

Lisa Eldridge

You'll probably recogonise Lisa Eldridge from her appearances on television shows such as Ten Years Younger. Listing Kate Moss, Emma Watson, Katy Perry and Carey Mulligan as some of her celebrity clients Lisa really knows her stuff. Make-up newbie? Check out her back to basics tutorials which feature videos such as How to Contour and Highlight and Acne/Blemish Covering Make-up.


Sam and Nic: Pixiwoo

Make-up artist sisters Sam and Nic have over 1 million subscribers to their beauty YouTube channel. Between them the two celebrity make-up artists run their own online magazine TWO, write a column for The Mirror and create regular make-up tutorial videos. Two years ago they were asked to teach a friend how to create "smoky eye" and rather than explain the steps over the telephone they uploaded a video to YouTube demonstrating the look in easy to digest steps. Their videos are sprinkled with tips, product suggestions and advice on how to adapt each look to suit different skin types. Struggle with eyeliner? Check out their Guide to the Best Eyeliner (waterproof, long lasting, glitter, easiest) video.

Vivianna Does Make-up

Self-confessed make-up maven Anna Gardner may not be a trained make-up artist but she is a beauty product obsessive. With a particular focus on skincare, Anna's channel features a range of hauls, reviews and musings. If flawless skin and natural-looking make-up is your beauty thang, you'll adore Vivianna Does Make-up. Check out her Spring Edit video for her recommendations on the best make-up products to try out this season.

Ruth Crilly: A Model Recommends

Working fashion model Ruth Crilly shares all of her top tips, secret tricks and insider knowledge on her beauty and fashion channel A Model Recommends. Ruth not only films product reviews but she also takes you behind the scenes on some of her fashion shoots, like in her My Fashion Shoot Beauty Essentials video, giving a behind the scenes insight into the industry.
