Beauty content on YouTube

In 2018, beauty-related content on YouTube generated more than 169 billion video views, up from 59 billion views just two years prior. The most popular types of beauty content videos on YouTube are campaign films, favorites/reviews, and tutorials. Despite the popularity of campaign films, it is actually user-generated content by beauty vloggers and influencers that drives the views: As of August 2018, influencer views accounted for 60 percent of beauty content views on the video platform, while brands and publishers only generated 39 and one percent of views respectively. For female consumers, YouTube ranks higher than TV in terms of its appeal for inspirational beauty content and a third of female consumers also reported to watching YouTube beauty tutorial videos at least occasionally.
