Up and coming YouTube channels worth your time

The Emmy’s have recently brought attention to the small screen, but there’s an even smaller screen that has a variety of talented personalities.

Make-up tutorials and fashion hauls are considered typical beauty vlogger videos, but Gabriella makes her videos interesting by giving them fun themes. Seasonal oriented videos and Disney themed videos have helped her gain loyal subscribers. One of her make-up tutorials is a how-to makeup video featuring characters from the show “Pretty Little Liars.” Her cover of Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do,” is a fresh duet take on the popular movie soundtrack single.

His latest video upload is a surprisingly soulful mash-up tribute to Taylor Swift, which is reason enough to visit his channel page.
