Influencers are taking over the world, so much so that an “influencer” is a thing.
We use to consider celebrities influencers, but there are a few new kids in town.
Youtube isn’t new and a lot of the more popular faces aren’t new either.
In fact, tons of black female YouTubers have put in years of work to build up their platform and reach thousands or millions of followers.
We’re trying to big up a lot of these people who are grindin’ and hustlin’, while also giving you entertainment.
So when you catch yourself wandering over to YouTube, these are the black YouTubers you need to follow.
Black Female Youtubers
Is there a YouTuber who is more known than Jackie Aina right now?
A proud army vet, Jackie has enlisted herself in “changing the standard of beauty, one video at a time.”
From makeup reviews to unpopular opinions to self-roasts, she is the new standard for the all around package.
“Is you okay? Is you?” Do you need a little comedy in your life?
GloZell is the one to do it.
This YouTuber’s fame has taken her way beyond the walls of her channel.
After starting her channel back in 2008, she’s since interviewed our forever president, Barack Obama.
From that bright green lipstick to her hilarious cinnamon challenge, get your laughs in while you can.
If you need a little wit packaged into a beautiful, melanin woman, your girl is Patricia Bright.
Straight from across the pond, once you stop admiring her accent, you’ll fall in love with her personality.
Honest, blunt, and unafraid to make fun of herself, Ms. Bright will have phrases like “nipples to the wind” becoming a part of your own vocabulary.
Come through, queen!
If you’re looking for rich melanin and a total sweetheart, that’s Nyma Tang.
An important part of YouTube’s beauty community, Nyma is okay with taking L’s in the name of her melanin-infused sisters.
From drugstore to high end brands, she’s ready to call out the brands who lack in inclusivity.
Do you ever get to that point where you’re sick of watching YouTubers make the same videos over and over again?
Alissa Ashley is a breath of fresh air!
A true expert in her craft, she dedicates herself to finding new ways to keep her followers interested, even if this means allowing a wheel to choose her makeup tools.
Come thru, Raye! Raye Boyce, better known as ItsMyRayeRaye is a beautiful presence over there on the ‘Tube.
A new mother, she’s known for her skincare and bomb makeup.
Plus, she’s never one to fake the funk. With popular collaborations with BH Cosmetics and Colourpop, this queen is on top of the world.
Fashion? Check! Makeup?
When it comes to Alyssa Forever, she’s giving her subscribers a taste of her lifestyle.
Not only is she coming through with content we all need, she’s also trying to help us save a buck.
Whether she’s styling one shoe nine ways or crafting her own designer shoes, she’s got everything.
Bougee meets real.
If you need a mix of bad and bougee, Makeupshayla is “zoin’ it, boo boo.”
Another staple in the beauty community, she’s going to bring reviews and hot fire looks.
While she’ll mostly stick to beauty videos, she might toss a bone or two with how she got her snatched body – naturally.
Are you looking for the real feel into someone’s life?
A lot of YouTubers craft a “vibe” for their online lives and others like Shameless Maya do it authentically.
Having spent 7 years on YouTube, she has grown to content about beauty, health, and travel.
Plus, as someone in her 30’s, she’s a fresh face as compared to some of these problematic teens (and even adults)!
If you feel like you’re constantly trying to step your wardrobe up, you need to take some tips from The Notorious KIA.
Want to know how to find amazing pieces at a thrift store?

Need some ideas for a first date?

Another thing she has – amazing hair and beautiful skin.
