My Top10 Aussie YouTubers of 2012

2012 was the year that I really 'discovered' YouTube. I have enjoyed following a number of Beauty Gurus from around the world, however my absolute favourites have been the Aussie Beauty Gurus. I wanted to share with you my Top10 Aussie YouTubers of 2012, in the hopes that you can check them out and fall in love with these amazingly talented ladies, just as I have. These Gurus have inspired me, introduced me to countless exceptional products and taught me more than I ever could have imagined. If you haven't yet seen their videos I highly recommend that you follow the links below and check them out; trust me, you wont regret it.

1 - Jodi at Goo Roo Beauty

Jodi is such a beautiful soul, who is just so incredibly talented. Her videos are some of the best researched I have ever watched; I always trust her opinions, she is honest, thorough and she has never led me astray. Jodi has a make-up collection to die for!!! Her hauls are amongst the very best on YouTube and she provides brilliant explanations about each product. Jodi is based in Perth, where she lives with her gorgeous family, you have to check out her recent video starring her two daughters, I have never seen anything more adorable in my life! In my opinion Jodi is one of the most knowledgable Beauty Gurus on YouTube and her channel is definitely my favourite of 2012. I encourage you to check it out, she is well worth the visit! 

2 - Brittney at Beautybybrittneyx

I absolutely LOVE this girl!! She is hilarious and has me in stitches ever single video! She is a true blue Aussie gal who creates great quality videos and best of all, she uploads frequently!!! I get so excited when one of her vids pops up in my sub box; her videos range from OOTD, tutorials, tags, reviews and so on. Brittney's recent YouTube Story inspired me to really commit to this blog and I plan to start making my own YouTube videos in 2013. Brittney has reached over 27,000 subscribers this year and I believe her popularity will continue to grow throughout 2013. Recently, Brittney moved to Brisbane to live with her Bestie Shellbarbie, and their collab videos are not to be missed, espescially the Day to Night Makeup Tutorial.  Be sure to check out her channel and tell her EsteemBeautyxo sent you!

3 - Shell at Shellbarbie

It's very easy to see why Shell and Brittney are BFFs. This chick is an absolute champ. She is so extremely talented and honestly she deserve to have triple the subscribers she has. I have loved seeing her popularity grow throughout 2012 and I can confidently say that her channel will continue to gain momentum in 2013. Once again she is so honest and tells it how it is, which I love. Probably one of my favourite things about Shell is how real she is; it's rare to find such a gorgeous girl, not just on YouTube but in life in general. I urge you to pop over to Shell's channel, I know you will fall in love with her! I recommend checking out her Day to Night Makeup Tutorial with Brittney, you'll never laugh so hard!

4 - Dominique at DOMMsmiles

Dom!!! She Rocks!!!! I first discovered Dominique in an IMATS vlog, she kept popping up and making me laugh out loud and I thought I'd better check her out! i've been obsessed ever since. I get so excited when I see her vids pop up, they never disappoint. She has a great sense of style and her haul videos are always worth a watch; as mentioned in my Top12 of 2012 Dom introduced me to Essence and sparked a new brand obsession for me. Dom's videos are of high quality and how she keeps her room so clean I will never know!!! If you're looking for a great YouTuber who is guaranteed to make you smile, pop over to Dom's Channel.

5 - Rachael at Rachaeljadee

Rachael was actually the VERY FIRST Aussie YouTuber that I discovered. She does great haul videos, tutorials, Vlogs and updates; Rachael introduced me to one of my favourite new book series, McCarthy's of Gansett Island. I have really enjoyed Rachaels recent Vlogmas on her second channel RachaelLikesToRamble. One of the first things you  will notice about Rachael is her gorgeous hair and amazing smile, I definitely recommend that you check it out.

6 - Renee at WinterRose84

First of all, that Nail Polish Collection... WOW!!! Renee is beautifully spoken, knowledgable, trustworthy and has a lot to offer. She offers a wide variety of videos on her channel and her Truth or Dare Tuesdays are not to be missed. Her name is quite apt as Renee sort of reminds me of a Rose; she is very elegant and sophisticated. Do pop over and check out her channel, she is an absolute delight.

7 - Ashleigh  at Ash4makeup

I credit Ashleigh with my addiction to Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains. I have been following Ash since about mid-way through 2012 and I thoroughly enjoy all of her vids. Her tutorials are awesome, she is a really, really talented Makeup Artist. I believe she is currently working at Mecca and I am green with envy!! One of my favourite videos is her October Favs, she's definitely worth a look and I suggest you subscribe because this girl is set to take YouTube by storm!

8 - Poppy at Makeupwithpoppy

It's Poppy!!! With the most amazing backdrop on YouTube and sporting a new fab shorter hair-do, I can't go past a video by Poppy. Her videos are always really informative and of high quality and content. Poppy has been a real inspiration to me in 2012 because she is at Uni studying, but she is also undertaking a makeup course at the Academy of Makeup (i believe). I love that she is following her passion and sharing her love of all things beauty and makeup with the world through YouTube. She is a very talented up and coming YouTuber and I can't say enough great things about her, you absolutely HAVE to check her out!

9 - Ella at Smileycitrus

With a catch phrase of "Peace, Love and Guacamole" how can you not love and adore Ella from smileycitrus??? I recently stumbled upon Ella and I have been obsessed with her videos ever since. She's living in Adelaide, originally from the UK, her accent is the best!!! Being born and raised in Adelaide, Ella holds a special place in my heart and she always manages to cheer me up. Ella is quite a humorous person and her editing adds to the entertainment value of her vids.  Her recent What I Got For Christmas Video is worth a view for sure!

10 - Mel at MissTango2

MissTango2 introduced me to Australis Finishing Spritz and for that alone I will be forever grateful. She is extremely talented and absolutely gorgeous!! I love that she posts a variety of videos to her channel, ensuring that there is something for everyone. Her How To: Glowing Skin video is probably one of my favourite videos of 2012. Mel is a great example of what Australia has to offer the YouTube community and I strongly recommend you check her out ASAP!!
