95% of people searching for beauty content head to Youtube to watch makeup-related videos and get beauty advice. Since Youtube contributed to the extreme success of the first ever beauty blogger, Michelle Phan, local makeup gurus have rushed to get in front of the camera, and amateurs have rushed to learn.

Actually, 97% of all beauty-related content on Youtube are made by beauty vloggers and “haul girls,” (girls that go on extreme makeup shopping sprees and explain in front of the camera what everything is while giving a review), causing brand-led and controlled content to contribute only 3% of the 15 billion beauty related videos. If brands know these types of videos are the most successful, why aren’t they hopping on the vlog/haul train? if single haul girls are finding more success than an entire brand, how can marketers use that to their advantage? Influencers are very important in the makeup industry, specifically on youtube. In fact, the top 25% of beauty bloggers have 115x more subscribers than big beauty channels, increasing a brand’s desire to work with these already-youtube-famous makeup artists.
Jaclyn Hill, a Youtuber with over 3 million subscribers, teamed up with BECCA Cosmetics to create a “Shimmering Skin Perfector” called “Champagne Pop”. Champagne Pop generated 4 million dollars in the first 4 days it was released. Stores sold out, and her subscribers flocked to Ebay and other sites to buy it for even more than the $38 it was sold for. The success of Champagne Pop can be traced back to the popularity of Jaclyn Hill and her extreme influence in the beauty product world.
