Day 15 - YouTuber Photo Bomb | The YouTuber Challenge

My favorite picture of YouTubers together (so far, anyways) has got to be this one.


Okay, so once you've stopped staring at this epicness, let's break this down. From left to right, back row-middle row-to front row, we have Jenna Ezarik (ItsMeJennaE), Joey Graceffa, Marcus Butler, Jim Chapman, Tanya Burr, Alfie Deyes (PointlessBlog), Tyler Oakley, Louis Cole (FoodForLouis and FunForLouis), Louise (Sprinkle of Glitter), Justine Ezarik  (iJustine), and Zoe (Zoella).

Now, let's break this down even further. There are a few general categories these YouTubers could be separated into. Beauty, Comedy, Vlogs, and Sassy. Some fit into more than one category, haha.

Beauty/Cosmetics
The lovely Tanya, Louise, and Zoe make up the Beauty YouTubers in this picture. As besties and young women who've loved makeup since they were teenagers, I tend to trust their recommendations and one day strive to be able to do makeup as well as these three.

Comedy
For comedy, we have Marcus, Alfie, and Jim. And, more than occasionally, the fabulous Tyler Oakley. Each has his own style of comedy. For instance, Marcus likes to play different characters in some of his videos (Miss Margaret comes to mind). 
Alfie tells awkward stories and rants (without being over the top about it). 
Jim uses his intelligence and wit to uppercut viewers into a frenzy of "Wait-what-did-I-Just-Hear-Him-Say" but in a purely comical way - kind of like a British Ryan Higa? I don't know. You Decide. 
Then , finally, Tyler. His sassy self is just so cute that your cheeks hurt after every one of his videos. He throws shade, fangirls, THE WORKS! I've really been enjoying his "SPECIAL AUGUEST" videos, and if you don't know what that is, I'd recommend you click that link. If you haven't figured it out yet, Tyler Oakley is also the Sassy YouTuber of this crew.

Vlogs
While there are a ton of vloggers out there, the best few (I'd say) are these daily vloggers Joey, Louis, and iJustine. Louis, a guy who loves to travel, started his daily vlogging when he, Sam Pepper, and Maz took a road trip across the U.K. Ever since, he's uploaded a video each day about his adventures there, then in the United States, and wherever else he travels.
Joey's vlogs can be more topical. Sometimes he uploads unboxing videos of him opening fanmail. Sometimes he has a nice little tag or collab for us. Other times, it's him walking around in his every day life. Fun, fun!
iJustine is probably one of my favorite female vloggers. She has so many channels that I probably couldn't even list them all here off the top of my head. But, basically, she uploads a video every day from one of her channels (sometimes more than that). I really admire her because of her skill and diligence as a pro YouTuber.

So that's my lengthy rambling on my favorite picture of YouTubers.
