Not only is YouTube is the most popular video-sharing and streaming website but also the second largest search engine in the world — beaten only by Google.
While the channels might cover the same topics (comedy, games, food, tutorials, etc.), each YouTuber gives their videos a unique style, which makes it one of the best platforms for people from all ages to spend their free time browsing.
Even though the most popular video creators are young bloggers, some older women have attracted a lot of attention with their content that ranges from makeup tutorials to playing video games.

One of the most striking aspects of her videos is that the models who try the makeup are older than 50, emphasizing her pro-age message.
