It seems like every other girl with a webcam is trying their hand at vlogging nowadays. This means that’s it’s both a good, and bad thing – you can end up following someone’s step-by-step tutorial and end up looking like an extra from the Creature From The Black Lagoon when Halloween’s long over, or you could possibly get Sofia Vergara’s hair. Lucky for you, I’ve done my research so and found the best make-up, fashion and fitness tutorials on YouTube, ranging from the easiest five minute make-up look to a morning yoga session to keep you bright and bubbly.
The Smoky Eye
Like the perfect push up bra, a good smoky eye’s something that every girl needs in her beauty repertoire. Promise Phan’s put a sexy spin on hers by using black stick on rhinestones for a slight sparkle, however you can skip this step if you can’t get your hands on any for a classic smokey eyed look. Va-va-voom, ladies!
Five Minute Make-Up
We know how it is ladies, you wake up in the morning, roll out of bed and, before you’ve even sat down for breakfast, you’re already late for work. Northern lass Emma Pickles has come up with a pretty (and thankfully simple) look that will have you looking dewy and fresh-faced all the way to the office. We’ve sorted out the beauty side of things for you, you’ll have to figure out a way to beat the MRT rush yourselves…
This one’s a bit more of a subtle look, but it really adds an insane amount of depth to your make-up. SoothingSista’s short and sweet tutorial is just so easy to follow and I personally would love to experiment with different lipsticks as well; a peach into coral, a bubblegum pink into magenta – the possibilities are endless!
Bronze and Berried
I love this gorgeous golden look and I’m secretly hoping that the dark berry lip becomes the next modern classic. Zoella’s super down-to-earth and her tutorial’s really easy to follow, I could see myself rocking this look at a sophisticated cocktail party or, jumping ahead in the future, at a Christmas Eve do. Be right back, just trawling through Beauty Bay for the perfect lipstick…
This is officially one the cutest videos ever. Kandee Johnson, a beauty vlogger more renowned for her awesome costume looks, sat down with her sister to get her ready for prom. This 20s inspired look is a very understated one perfect for a lunch date or even just the regular day to day if you’ve got a bit of time. (Gosh, how cute does this girl look in her prom dress?)
Making Sense of the Maxi Skirt
Maxi skirts and dresses have made a comeback in a big way, though it’s always difficult wrapping your head around how to style them. Let The Thrifter’s Closet do the work for you in their styling session below with a seemingly endless range of looks, whether you’re gunning for sexy chic with a sheer maxi skirt or slouchy cool with a grey jersey one.
How to Dress for the Heat
There’s no escaping the Singapore humidity ladies, but at least you can try your best to prepare for it. Clothesencounters has come up with a number of easy breezy looks to help you beat the heat – think ripped boyfriend jeans, slouchy shirts and bright chiffon. Can I have everything in her closet please?
Headscarf Bow Tutorial
I’ve been a massive fan of Zukreat’s make-up tutorials for a while, but I’ve just recently stumbled across her super fun scarf tying tutorials aimed at ladies wanting a flair on the standard hijab. This is such a fun look for anyone to wear if you want your hair up and out of the way on those typical humid Singaporean days.

Strong is the new sexy ladies and nobody knows that better than the ladies over at Popsugar. With a 40 minute workout designed to make you sweat, this upbeat routine is full of all the pep and colour that takes us back to the fitness videos of the 90s. I personally would like this lady to be my personal cheerleader.
Morning Yoga Sequence
Yoga guru Adrienne’s heard your cry for a morning routine and she’s definitely delivered. Designed to give you that hit of energy 7am starts always seem to be lacking, this easy to follow yoga tutorial is perfect for newbies and will still give veterans a reason to sweat. Forego the coffee this time round ladies, it’s time for a sunrise salutation!
