7 highlights from YouTube’s first-ever Beauty Festival

A quick recap of #BeautyFest

Attention: Beauty-lovers! We just wrapped YouTube’s first-ever Beauty Festival, presented by YouTube Originals. If you weren’t able to tune-in and see Pharrell, Selena, Gwyneth, Addison, Emma, Hyram and more live… don’t fret! You can still catch the event anytime, right here!

Now that the finishing spray is set on #BeautyFest, let’s bask in the glow of a few of our favorite moments. 


When we asked folks like Jessica Alba, Ashley Graham and Shalom Blac to read their favorite YouTube comments. (The one from Kandee Johnson was a real tear-jerker, too.) We also asked some of the pros (like MissRemiAshten and Rachhloves) to tell us their greatest beauty hacks ever. 


Jen Atkin blindly coached Noah Beck through a haircut, which he nailed (As if he wouldn’t, sheeeeeesh!).
