Beauty YouTubers Everyone Should Watch
Being an older woman in a society dominated by active youth can be depressing. People seem to have a general idea of how an older woman should look or act. Most will expect you to wear what is regarded as ‘old people’s clothes’, a plain face to enforce your age and lack of concern for things such as makeup, and more importantly, stay out of online hubs like YouTube. It has gotten so bad that anti-aging or wrinkle removal creams are branded using younger women less than 30 years old.
YouTube is a prime platform for beauty vloggers to reveal themselves and thrive with a multitude of followers. And as you can guess, it is believed to be a no-go zone for older women. Thankfully, some brave and beautiful women have broken through those obstacles. They take to YouTube regularly, to show others like themselves how to be old and love makeup. If you want to live by your own rules and know who these beauty YouTubers are, read on to meet our top choices.
