The Youtube beauty community can be a sea of sponsorships, endorsements and bombardment of numerous products making it difficult to navigate. Ideally, we all want to purchase things which are good quality, will enhance our best features or be of benefit to our daily routines. Mostly, we all want to be conscious consumers don’t we? So here we have compiled a list of our favourite beauty bloggers who are here to show us the best products and brands which do just that.
Jasmine is so varied with the content she posts, from how to achieve stunning metallic face makeup to hair care videos specifically for women of colour. Making the switch to veganism in 2016 means that all the products Jasmine chooses to show are vegan and cruelty free. As well as her beauty and hair care tutorials, Jasmine shares her need-to-know know beauty hacks and entertaining life updates.
