YouTube Beauty Videos I Specifically Avoid

YouTube Beauty Videos I Specifically Avoid

  Recently I went over my thoughts about Why I Don’t Watch Beauty Videos on YouTube anymore. But this doesn’t necessicarily mean I have gone and unsubcribed to everyone I used to love. In truth, I have unsubscribed from several, but there are a lot of YouTubers I still follow […]
