After looking through YouTube’s wide variety of content and blogs, there was one channel that stood out in the sense that it targets two kinds of audiences — those who appreciate cosmetics and those who enjoy horror.
Mykie, a professional beauty and special effects makeup artist from Los Angeles, started the YouTube channel Glam&Gore. With makeup tutorials that are both glamorous and gory, Glam&Gore’s content reflects exactly what the channel’s name suggests. Throughout her four years on YouTube, she has gained over 3 million subscribers, or “zombaes” as she calls them.
Mykie is always up for new and interesting tutorials. For example, in one of her videos she goes on the dating app Tinder and has the men she matches with choose the style of makeup she’s going to do.
Aside from finding uncommon ways to get content, she also works with surrounding makeup artists. Glam&Gore, in its most interesting and realistic makeup collaboration, transformed renowned makeup artist Jeffree Star into Lord Voldemort from the “Harry Potter” films.
If you’re particularly interested in special effects makeup or want to see a gruesome twist on some of your favorite characters, Glam&Gore is the YouTube channel for you. Mykie is funny, talkative and not afraid to improvise if the makeup isn’t going the way she expected it to. Glam&Gore provides an entertaining makeup tutorial experience and leaves viewers with several ideas for Halloween.
