Fashion- and beauty-related content such as makeup and skincare tutorials, cosmetics hauls and product recommendations are among the most popular content on YouTube. Campaign films accounted for the biggest share of beauty content video views on YouTube, generating more than a third of views as of August 2018. Favorites or reviews and tutorials were ranked second and third with 15 and 14 percent of views respectively. The most popular beauty and makeup YouTubers have millions of followers – in April 2019, Mexican beauty blogger Yuya was the most subscribed beauty content creator on the video platform with 23.59 million subscribers to her channel.
