Ever wondered how your favorite Youtube beauty blogger make a living? AdAge ranked YouTube’s top bloggers, estimated their monthly income, and well, the numbers are insane.
22-year-old Mexican beauty blogger Yuya (lady16makeup) topped the list after raking in over 35 million page views on her channel in March. It’s estimated that she earns over 41 thousand dollars monthly—that’s around 1.8 million pesos, JSYK. No big deal, really.
Coming in second place is Bunny (grav3yardgirl) with over 27 thousand views and 32 thousand dollars. In third place is Zoella (zoella280390), whose videos received over 23 thousand views and who is estimated to earn 27 thousand dollars a month.
But if you think the style and beauty girls made serious bank, know that Youtube’s number one food channel, charliscraftykitchen received over 29 million views last month and raked in a total of 127 thousand dollars. (That’s 5.6 million pesos!)
Where does the money come from, you ask? From advertisers, guest appearances, endorsement deals, and more. Many of these bloggers gain so much attention that they end up becoming celebrities themselves; Zoella released her first novel last year (with a second one in the works), Michelle Phan has her own makeup line, Em Cosmetics, and Bethany Mota has her own clothing collection for Aerpostale.
