3. Jeffree Star
Most Watched Video: Full Face of Brands That Hate Me with 36 million views.
Star’s internet fame began when he became the most followed Myspace profile. This internet celebrity status led him to YouTube in 2006.

Nowadays, you’ll see Star uses his YouTube platform to talk about the beauty industry. He often “spills the tea” about make-up brands and big names in the business.
If you’re into beauty gossip and love trying new make-up trends, you need to give Star a follow. Remember, he might be a bit biased as he has his own make-up company now. But we like to think he’s still fair when reviewing other brands.
