Though many of us know that gurus are hard pressed for time it does feel as if you become "friends", like you know them because you have watched them for so long. And of course it would hurt to feel as if you were ignored by a friend. Maybe people should not feel that way but it doesn't mean they don't. I do think people should expect less of gurus but I do think gurus should try a little harder as well. So I can't say I am on either side of this one. But that's not the reason I am writing today.
The biggest reason YouTube has kind of been put on the back burner for me as of late is the subject of originality. I feel as if the YouTube makeup community has become very uninspired and repetitive.
For example: One week "Guru X" posts a video about a certain brand of makeup, soap, nail polish...anything really...and the next week every video you see will be of that particular thing. I just feel as if people have become very uninspired therefore have shifted to hopping on any and all bandwagons that may pass by. Whether it be a certain palette that is all the rage or what.
It really bothers me. I guess that is where my artistic spirit jumps into high gear because I don't like being the same as anyone else. I hate being compared. I pride myself as being a very original person. Not to say that just because one guru gets something others cant but it seems as if YouTube videos these days are a repetition of a select few brands and companies over and over. No variety.
Maybe I am the only one who feels this way...maybe not but I ask you my dear readers... If you would like to see reviews for some other brands you are interested in please, PLEASE!, leave me a comment below with a link or a brand name. I am desperate to get out of this makeup rut and will gladly give them a try.
Thanks for listening to my crazy musings at 4 in the morning.
