Sick of the drama in the beauty community? We found 10 new accounts for you to follow

The beauty community can be toxic—as we've learned from some of our favorite beauty gurus on Youtube. So it didn't catch us by surprise when beef started up between Shane Dawson, Jeffree Star, Tati Westbrook and James Charles. It's hard to even remember what the drama is about because new information is constantly being posted.

The last we heard, Tati feels that Shane and Jeffree manipulated her into making the Bye Sister video last year which insulted and accused James of various *horrible* things. This video along with Jeffrees video titled Never doing this again turned the whole beauty community against James Charles, causing him to lose a bunch of subscribers. Then James *clapped back* with his No more lies video proving all the beauty gurus wrong! Tati has since deleted the video and ironically uploaded a new one titled BREAKING MY SILENCE where she apologized to James for saying those horrible things Shane and Jeffree claimed to be true about him. Everyone was *shook*! Neither Jeffree nor James has come out with statements or videos addressing Tatis recent 40-minute video, or the situation as a whole. 

If you're just as sick of the ups and downs as we are, dive into these 10 accounts to get the beauty tutorials, hacks and reviews that you *love* watching so much—hold the drama.
