A Beginner’s Guide To Video Beauty Tutorials

Remember the contouring frenzy of last year? If you're like most women (in other words, not a celebrity with your own beauty team) then you may even have attempted the look yourself and more likely than not, ended up with war paint on your face. Experimenting with different make-up looks is meant to be fun but with so many new products and techniques out there (what is ​strobing, anyway?), it can be a little daunting. And trying to find the answer on the internet is equally stressful. But don't fret – we've uncovered the best and most straighforward make-up tutorials on the internet from professional make-up artists and beauty gurus.

From beauty tips that are a must-know for every season and occasion (like picking the perfect foundation) to bang-on-trend tricks (like contouring and the eyeliner flick), these how-tos will transform your look. And yes, we've even got one to explain what strobing is and how to achieve it! The best part about these beauty videos is that you can learn how to re-create the look from the comfort of your own home, and the tutorials all come with product recommendations so that you can find exactly what's right for you.
