The Tag Quadrant: My Beauty Community

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe. I am back with a new post!

My Beauty Community Tag!

This was created by Kara C which was made after Shane Awesome posted on Twitter about how all beauty creators are “toxic.” Yes, I put that in quotes but I did talk about this on our podcast, Nerdy Shique Transmissions, that we are not all toxic since we are not like the problematic ones. So, this tag was made to shout out the ones that we love and enjoy since I have been someone who watched YouTube from 2008 onward and have missed the Beauty Space for some time. Let’s get into this but first…

Disclaimer: The YouTube people I am talking about is based on my own thoughts and opinions and the ones I chose are based on who fits what. Please respect my choices.

The YouTuber That Makes You Laugh: First is someone that makes you laugh and I have to give it to Teresa Is Dead. I just got into her recently because so many people have recommended her and finally got to watch her stuff and man she does crack me up. I also want to give it to Nappy Headed Hahoba which she doesn’t do many beauty stuff but she is also entertaining. I got into her all thanks to Jen Luv’s Reviews interviewing her and it was pretty funny and I did watch one of her videos or two or maybe three but she is pretty funny and I do love her catch phrase at the end.
The Person That Teaches You: I have to give it to Jen Luv’s Reviews! I got into her all thanks to watching monthly Ipsy videos when I wanted to know who else got what and then knew about her weekly live chats and her group, what’s up in Makeup. I love how she does her makeup videos because she breaks down a lot of products when it comes to ingredients and how they work, how high up it is in the list and so on and what I also like about her is that she does mention what skin type won’t like the product. It does help me since I do have a lot of sensitive and dry skin especially when she points out the alcohol being drying even denatured alcohol over time. I will admit I used to use alcohol for acne and it did dry my skin and ever since I moved from Orlando to the coast I have a better skin regimen now then I had before. Plus, she makes me think when it comes to the topics she talks about on her chat because we hardly think about it until she explains what she sees and how she observes. Also, she does mention she is not perfect in her edits and I am happy that she is not. We always want the perfect person on YouTube but we do make mistakes and glad Jen does do her edits and say that she messed up or explains something better. One video I do want to recommend is the one on lip balms which is a two part video because it explains the ingredients especially the bad ones and I think that should be something everyone should know when it comes to taking care of the lips.
A Creator That Lifts Others Up: I give it to Jen again because she always shouts out so many people on YouTube and tells everyone to check their channel out and of course Smoky Glow too since she is always a sweetheart and honestly talks about different topics. I rather watch someone who lifts other YouTubers and say what it is when it comes to products and all thanks to Smoky Glow she did mention Smashbox when it came to brands being forgotten and that is my next episode on my channel for Beauty Forgotten.
A Creator You Respect: This is an interesting category but one I do respect is 90s Love Child. I came onto her with the deconstruction of Kat Von D and how honest she is when it came to how much the brand changed within the past few years and she does give a lot of honesty in her Anti-Hauls, her Beauty Regrets, and so on and it is one of those channels should be watched when it comes to not buying anything.
Someone’s Collection You Love: I have to give it to both Young Wild & Polished and Angelica Nyquist! Reason being is that I have watched these two and I am impressed with what they have. Young Wild & Polished is mostly into nail colors but she does love eye shadows and she got me interested in Makeup Geek which I am trying to explore a little more and her hauls have been something I have enjoyed. I rarely see her post but I think so many people post so many videos in my subscription feed that it’s hard to keep up. While Angelica, I do love how she does her Makeup Going On the Wish List or Nah videos because like me she is trying to curb the purchasing and I like how honest she is towards what gets released with the brands she already buys from. I do find it interesting that Sweden does get some releases that we don’t or they get it first before we get it and I also find it interesting that Glossy Box was originally from Sweden and they get different items in their boxes. I also want to add and forgot about this creator and that is Spooky Lips & Fat Hips because she has a huge trunk for her pallets and makeup! I wonder how heavy that is since she and her boyfriend did move to an apartment in New York and she has talked about brands that she has been eyeing so many things on but also wants to go through a Low Buy which the struggles are real.
Creator Whose Creativity Inspires You: Wow, this is hard because so many people have given me ideas for doing tags and I’ve seen so many who have done so many makeup looks but I would say Danielle Schmidt and Nicole Quinn. Danielle is a very peppy personality and when she had her divorce I’ve noticed how she limited her makeup purchasing and I think she inspired me in doing a Low Buy because I notice that my bank account goes pretty low after buying something from Ipsy sometimes or Ulta and so on. I do have to say is that all thanks to her doing one tag which is What Would I Grab from a Fire? I show her my post and she replied and was impressed with what I chose since she does reply to her comments. With Nicole Quinn, on the other hand, I do love how she does her many looks videos which I want to do something like that with some of my pallets I don’t always have the time to do but she does inspire me into looking at the colors and know what to work with in that pallet. I also have bought some of the Urban Decay releases all thanks to her videos that deal with looks, I even saw her Naked Ultraviolet Review and I am looking forward to this pallet since it is going to be released on Ulta’s website and app tomorrow and she did point out some of the shades she had some good use of. I can’t wait to do my video on it.
Creators You Want to Be Friends with in Real Life: Jen Luv’s Reviews, Hot Mess Mama MD and Spooky Lips & Fat Hips! Reasons with Jen is that she is very nice and she always loves to talk to people when it comes to giving makeup advice, also talking about new releases, and of course she has been starting to do things to interact with the audience more like making one of her live shows more of a radio show recently which was really cool. Not only that, she does look out for people even has her community mods looking out for her group and YouTube. Back in 2018 when I started working I got a message from one of the mods about how one of my makeup pictures was posted in a makeup bullying group where they roast your looks and they kicked the girl out for it because it is a huge no-no in the group. So I got home and did a live video saying not to be the makeup bully because I was devastated about it and even told everyone on the post that was talking about these groups that have been popping up that I was a victim. I talked about my video and they asked for the link and I did and Jen was one of the people who commented on it and I was happy and it did cheer me up. With Hot Mess Mama MD, I would love to be friends with her in real life because of how she accepts herself as a makeup addict. The addiction is real and you can get caught up in it very quickly where you can buy a lot of makeup without realizing it and I have done that when I first opened my Ulta card and I am working on getting it paid which is harder than I thought. I also love how she does videos with her kids especially the Mother vs. Daughter with Ipsy and she used to do chats as well. And finally Spooky Lips, she is a total nerd and I can talk with her about our favorite fandoms all day. I even love how she does her chats or used to do them but rarely see any posts, I guess due to the amount of people I subscribe to but she has a very awesome personality and I would love to visit New York and visit her.
Creators I Want to See Grow: I would have to see us! As in Nerdy SHique Universe! Even though we started just doing convention related content but we do want to keep stuff going up in between conventions because we don’t attend all of them like we used to and you know some reasons why and other reasons is due to funds and we have to sometimes choose wisely. Yes, I am keeping an eye out for RangerStop 8 because we had a blast and I want to keep going because it is small and people are fun and friendly to hang with. Plus I am among the blind creators and I do get to sit down with people and interview and of course we do have our podcast now which I want to grow that as well. Another person I want to see grow is Porcelain because I love how she is honest with her thoughts on makeup even the products she has used and how well they worked and how much they didn’t work. Plus YouTube is her full time job which she did have a retail job that didn’t go well due to her mental health but I want to see her grow as a channel and I love her personality as in she is Goth but she is so happy all the time in her videos. She does go serious sometimes but most of the time she is all smiles!
A Creator That Gives Off Good Vibes: There are so many but I would have to give it to Hot Mess Mama MD because like I said she accepts who she is and she doesn’t have to fake it. I also give it to Elizabeth Wolf because she talks about BoxyCharm and any spoilers to look out for. And finally Self Taught Beauty, I love this woman’s personality because of how she says it best that she likes to not only do beauty content but other things sometimes.

Well guys that is it for this tag post! Man there were a lot! I do have to say is check out these creators because they need some love on YouTube especially now since everything has become one nuclear mess due to what is going on. We need to support the smaller creators since they can get there and still stay true to themselves without getting an expensive car and other things. If we would, we would so have the Supernatural Jeep due to our nerd sides but we already have a car that we deem the Tartus. Anyways, next will be that book review since I am wrapping up in reading it. I am so sorry about that since June was a bit of a crazy month for me, especially before going into it. Stay tuned guys!
