Rae of The RaeView is the proof there's life and good taste on YouTube beyond Lisa Eldridge. Furthermore, this talented 22 years old woman also reminds us that age is not necessarily a factor when it comes to makeup techniques and understating of quality and style. Her reviews are thorough and precise, and makeup tutorials are pretty, wearable and practical.
Rae is a very beautiful woman and it certainly increases her appeal, but as far as I'm concerned, a vlogger who doesn't make me want to pelt her with a thesaurus, a dictionary and a grammar guide is priceless. The YouTube beauty community is a very different universe from what established old school bloggers are used to. It's full of social interactions that would have me not just cranky but also a true homicidal misanthrope. Rae deals with it with a level of grace I can't hope to find even when I'm twice my current age.
And she gives some really good advice.
Here's Rae's review of some Le Metier de Beaute products and a tutorial of using the Splendid Frost Kaleidoscope. There's a lot more on her blog and in her YouTube channel.
