EXPOSED: You Need to Unfollow Any Beauty Guru Who Does This.

Published on Nov 15, 2018
I hope I don’t regret making this… in this video I’m exposing shady behavior that I see beauty gurus and influencers partaking in. It makes me so frustrated, because in my opinion, if you are purposely deceiving your subscribers and followers you don’t deserve ANY of them. I know I’ll probably receive backlash from people who don’t know me or what I’m about, but I really feel like someone needs to speak up, ‘spill the tea’ and let you guys know what’s going on. I love you x

  • I always reverse google image search giveaways pictures..You'd be surprised of the scams

  • Can you do a makeup tutorial without any filters or special lighting?

  • You are so dang pretty! This makeup is fabulous on you! I have similar colors and they are so flattering on light eyes. I personally don't chase giveaways, such a pain in the a$$. If I want it that badly, I'll go buy it. Influencers can absolutely be genius advertisers for a product. Who doesn't want something that someone puts on so beautifully, looks fabulous, makes it fun and makes people feel that they are involved in a "community"? Describes most commercials we see. I'm in it for the entertainment value. Although, Marlena did get me. I tried and liked MUG after watching her videos for a while, but not before seeking out reviews. That's the only purchase I can say came straight from You Tube. I think it can be a good thing if consumers are smart about their purchases.

  • With the whole charity thing, even if an US-tv personality is trying to do damage control, even if their motives aren’t pure, someone who is in need is still getting help. I agree with other posters on here, there is a ton of good here and maybe focus on them with your next video. Spread some love around, give some shoutouts! ❤️ US-tv is an amazing tool! I’ve learned stuff from makeup tips, to fixing my Shark Vacuum cleaner! I don’t know what I’d do without all the tutorials on here. :)

  • People saying Jeffree Star is a good guy because he donates to charity without telling people. If that's true, how would you know if he doesn't tell anyone? Hmm.

  • What bugs me is how white your hands look versus your foundation. Lets all unfollow beauty gurus that don’t know how to foundation match.

  • Is this lady a MUA/guru? Bc sorry but her makeup is atrocious

  • You are correct ... I have followed quiet a few doing this xx

  • Thank you for being honest. Everything you said is so true. Love your channel.

  • Mmmhmmm m. Laura Leech, take note.

  • I was dozing off till I watched your video, it made me wide awake as it's so true, especially the charity part.

  • Names: Laura Lee, Manny MUA, Jeffree Star, Jaclyn Hill, Gabriel Zamora, Thomas Halbert, James Charles and most of the Morphe Oysters. Plus Jackie Aina and Alissa Ashley and Arnell.

  • So I guess she's talking about Laura Lee when she said the bit about charity...

  • @lilith.chan had a photo for a "follow train". It said follow these 9 people, i think it was 9, like all of their follow train photos and comment done, and we will follow you back. I did all the steps. The next day the post was deleted and none of them followed me. I commented on one of her photos asking what happened and she replied "oh we always delete the photo after"

    • I unfollowed all of them

  • You look fab but your suit blonde soo much more

  • I think that there’s a difference between influencers trying to look good and gain back a following after a scandal and influencers recognising they did something wrong and want to show that they’ve learned and in order to make up for the mistakes they’ve made they donate and work with a charity

  • That’s why I don’t enter any giveaways

  • I've honestly never seen one of those loop giveaways. They sound like something I would know was a scam the second I saw one.

  • Any publicity is good publicity for you making this video though.. 🍵

  • Are they ALWAYS trying to use charities? How do U know?

  • I've NEVER heard of someone asking for you to follow all amounts of Insta pages. Only like subscribe to the channel and comment. ?

  • Hunny this video is shady behavior. I'm certified in sociology. Think of the Real reason you made this video.....

  • I love Manny MUA He's not racist he's fucking Spanish. Lmao. Everyone has said a racial slur they now regret. C'mon and be human. I would live for Jeffree and Manny's reconciliation 2019!🕊🖤

  • Isn't that what your doing by posting this and causing drama from other US-tvrs??? Your being part of the drama by doing this.. let it work it's self out,.. some might have issues with you after this

    • +Em 12344 thanks Em ...they all need to stop and just worry about themselves, nothing's "fair" on US-tv......

    • Nayla Leifson well said !!

  • I’ve seen cosmetic companies do that on Instagram with competition

  • Queen Tati would never

  • Wayne Goss is the true make up Guro.

  • Your eye makeup is stunning.

  • I unfollowed JWOWW for that loop scam.


  • Yes wow. Loop giveaways drive me crazy. Why do I want to follow random people I don't care about? Ugh.

  • Ive wondered this before. Like u can get a bunch of followers but how do we know anyone really wins. So dumb

  • Want straight up honesty and class....tati westwood!!!!!

  • You look very drag.

  • True that Stephanie!! I have learnt Makeup from some honest Makeup Gurus like #WayneGoss, he is a legend and a beautiful Soul!!

  • I applaud you for making this video. You’re exactly right. The drama in the beauty community is getting out of hand. It makes me sick! Instead of singling people out in the comments we should all just ignore the people who do these sort of things. They don’t deserve to have their names mentioned, causing more people to follow them just to see the drama unfold. Let’s not give them more “fame & glory” that’s not deserved.

  • Also I should point out that your makeup tips are really helpful and... Actually I have never seen anyone doing something like this before. Everyone is just using the same tips that never work for me like USE A PORE MINIMIZING PRIMER BAKE EVERYTHING YOU CAN BAKE I thought that maybe something is wrong with me, maybe I have crooked arms so that I can't achieve that flawless look. You was the first person to say that these techniques do not necessarily work on everyone

  • When I look at Wayne Goss channel, I see makeup tutorials, tips and lifehacks When I look at your channel, I see again tips and life hacks, and sometimes such videos like this where you address your subscribers. When I look at the random beauty guru's channel, I see: 1) full face of stupid random shit 2) challenge 3) full face of stupid random shit 4) challenge 5) challenge 6) challenge From this point it's clear for me who is actually a beauty blogger. Of course doing challenges and full face of whatever doesn't mean that the person's channel doesn't worth paying attention. The main thing is, this should not be the main part of your content, and this is why I like you

  • Omgggg this ?!!!! This video is EVERYTHING- I’ve backed off beauty videos on my channel because of this junk didn’t want to be associated with the drama

  • Amen amen!!!!! Loved this video.

  • Think Laura Lee and working with the homeless! Like she really cares? Nope she wanted buff out the shady image. Girl preach! I have unsubbed from many YTbers for all these behaviours

  • i feel same on the follow to win thing sadly they all have done this i have seen in last 6 years so just best to not and ignore them all it is sad shouldnt have to share to win" is nuts lol but thats just me 💎

  • Stephanie, we just adore you! Thank you for your love!

  • Cough... Cough... Laura lee... So fake

  • You guys correct me if I'm wrong but didn't James Charles just do this? I think he said we had to go back and like ALL of his previious videos and follow a bunch of people.

  • Uhhhhh Laura lee??? Lol disingenuous bitch

  • Got rid of most of my social media because of the fake lives people live out on there. Thank you so much for this!!!! You’re very talented btw!

  • One of the most important value in my life is honesty. That is why I respect you as a person.

  • I was just telling my husband how i follow several gurus and you’re by far my favorite. I hope you get more followers because you deserve it. Stay humble, girl. We all love you!!

  • I am small blogger. just started, being so genuine as I can! PLEASE support me . I post twice a week. I suck :D but I study and learn and try. my instagram has 5k followers :)

  • Omg such a important and informative video! It’s so true! I’m from Denmark and I can tell you it’s not only in other countries it’s also happening here - a lot!

  • My biggest pet peeve is this - when beauty gurus "donate their makeup to homeless women" I'm like - b!tch - they don't need your makeup - they need a home; food; etc LMFAO

  • Follow these beauty’s @SamanthaMarch ( you will find many lovely ladies from her community playlist of a Will I buy it series) @AngelicaNyqvist @AmyLovesMakeup @PaulinaBeauty @SamanthaRavndahl @RawBeautyKristi @KathleenLights 💜💜💜💜 You will find honest opinions and no drama, fun makeup with color or natural depending what you love 💗

  • Stephanie, you always seem so genuine and kind and I really appreciate that about you. You are one of the very few beauty gurus I will subscribe to. Thank you for keeping it real.

  • I just unsubscribed to Jaclyn after watching this....

  • Tammy Hembrow Michael Finch

  • This beauty make tutorial thing is madness. I’ve seen girls of 11 years making tutorials with adult make up together with foundation, eyelashes, mascara etc etc… Just Crazy!

  • I dont follow beauty gurus anymore

  • seeing a beauty guru work with a charity to recover from a PR issue - #paginglauralee

  • Like Laura lee when she got into shit over Twitter she done that charity video. Sooooo fake x

  • I’m totally so done with the beauty community. It’s full of lies, fake people, money hungry people and they’re so shady. I’m all for small you tubers now and totally support them. Xx

  • Brutally honest. Hahahaha.

  • Good video, you make a lot of good points Steph. Unfortunately there are a lot of fake people out there, using charity is a bit of a low move. You make US-tv a better platform 👍 xx However I cannot believe the people dropping on Jeffree Star.... goes to show that people really do only remember mistakes from ten years ago.... and the people throwing shade obviously have never made a mistake before or said something they later regret 🙄🙄 Jeffree gets dragged into drama.. you cannot expect someone to jump on him in order to make a name for themselves by calling him out and for him to sit there quietly and take it?

  • So happy I found your channel ❤

  • How about Gabbie Hanna promoting Kenza cosmetics to her followers (mostly comprised of young impressionable people smh) and not even addressing it?

  • "Using charity as a way to recover from drama or controversy." *COUGH COUCH HATCHIIIIIIIIII LAURA LEE COUGH COUGH BRAH*

  • you couldn't possibly re-make this video but just make it 5 seconds long and just answer the question you posed in your video title, could ya?

    • I don’t make videos for people who want to be spoon fed in 5 seconds or less.

  • I'm late commenting as usual..... I've unsubscribed to so many beauty influencers, beauty whatevers. And the ones I've unfollowed, not gonna actually name names, but the ones that are just so fake, only about making money and having more followers (followers they dont even care about, only the number) ....I wanna watch someone that actually loves makeup, actually loves trying new makeup, is honest about if the makeup is good or not, and not worried about how many subscribers and followers they have, not worried about how much money they make, they do it because they love it..... another thing that bothers me is people getting all this free makeup, showing off their "collections" those aren't collections, they didn't go out and buy and collect that stuff! It was gave to them! And then regular people watch it and think that's the kinda makeup collection they need to have. And I'm not hating because people get free makeup, that's good for them. But I dont like for anyone to brag about what they have, how much they have, how much money they have, what kinda house they have, how many and what kinda cars they have, that sickens me! There are people, children who dont have homes, dont have food to eat, cloths to wear, let alone makeup, or private jets or what ever. If some one is so well off, they could MAYBE brag about how hard they have worked, how far they have came, and HELP OTHER PEOPLE! Not brag and show off about how much they have! I've unfollowed several people I use to be subscribed to simply because of that. I dont watch these videos to see what all they have, how much money they have, or other stuff they have...... I've also stopped watching people that are racists! And I dont think there is an excuse for that! That's who they are, no matter how many apologies, once it's been said or done, it's been said or done and I'm done with those people. And I dont think it's right or fair for one person to be ridiculed for it and then another do it and say "oops, did I say that, sorry" and everyone be ok with it! ....... I think stephanie is genuine, she is who she is, what ya see is what ya get, but shes also caring and respectful!!! There are some others, again trying not to name names, but try n come across as just being honest, or blunt and they are just ignorant and disrespectful! Unfollowed them too........ ok I may have the biggest rant on here, I'm kinda all over the place, but said what I wanted to say (ok there is more but I'm gonna stop)

  • Ugly bitch

  • If you go out and do charity work and go out of your way to film it and show how amazing you are, the only charity work your doing is for yourself

  • You should also unfollow any guru that has a "code" with a scamming company. Smh

  • I’ve started to really like you and your channel.

  • Yes and unfortunately, all of the above that you've been talking about WORKS. It works and it keeps them relevant and gets them followers. They keep being toxic because it benefits them and it continues to work.

  • I am here to support smaller channels that are laid back and down to earth people. I am sick and tired of this drama, PR hauls and huge 1000+ $£ hauls and flashy extravagant life. I want someone to relate to. Here are some channels I really enjoy and are relaxing actually :D RawBeautyKristi, Jessica Braun |JAMbeauty89, nicolerenee, Samantha Ravndahl, PopLux and RachhLoves. Share yours :)

  • Elle Loves Tea made a video about this video and she really dragged Stephanie the whole time. I don't get it, I don't feel like this is just for attention. So sick and tired of people hating her, she's dope.

  • Well said! ... you go girl ...

  • Now subscribed I love people like you Wayne goss xsparkage and bubzbeauty

  • Side note: Your face & hand are WAY far apart in skin tone! Foundation shade too dark?

  • I truly love you!!!!!

  • Trisha paytas just did this!

  • I love shani but she has 100% done one of those loop giveaways before when she went to Mykonos with tana mongeu and a bunch of other people

  • lol shots fired! Laura lee !!!!!!!

  • Gal you have some good points however it took you 7 minutes to say about 3 things 😂

  • omg i felt the same way abt the charity thing THANK YOU subscribed

  • Omgggg girllllll you took these words righttt out of my mouth!!!!!

  • You are not "beauty guru", you are drama channel.

  • Honestly this is the content i want to make! xxxx

  • 100% agree. I actually unfollow when I can tell they have sold out. This happens when you see all the bigger influencers all humping the same product - usually an expensive one (Tatcha comes to mind as does Farsali). They don't tell you they are paid for, but let's face it - you know. and, once someone becomes involved in drama, I'm out as well. It's sad this country seems to want big, ugly gossip and bad behavior to be part of their lives. It's a big reason there is so much turmoil. Too many people with no life live for ugly behavior.

  • Yups

  • I've seen COUNTLESS companies on instagram selling baby products doing the exact same !! It's not just limited to beauty gurus. I never knew it was fake! Thank you for bringing light to this!

  • Sub to PewDiePie instead


  • I’ve received so many e-mails asking me to be a part of a loop giveaway for a trip/cash prize etc and they always ask you to put in money and promise that your ig will grow. It’s super super sus.

  • Why has no one said Dani Mansutti??

  • Couldn't stop looking at the white lines under her brows...

  • Yes to all you said! Subscribing after watching this. Keep doing YOU girl! 👏🏼👏🏼

  • you know what annoys me though? Taking one picture as "before" then photoshoping the same picture and claiming it as "aFtER". Yeah.

  • Whats with the tranny make up this is like the emperors new clothes where no one says anything 🤨

  • Did a lot of talking but didnt really say anything.

  • Wayne Goss Hindash Sineady Cady Lisa Eldridge Sona Gasparian Tati are some of the most genuine beauty gurus I've seen on US-tv
