If you're like us, you've been feeling the social distancing anxiety and all the recent news in a major way. Luckily, there is an entire genre of art dedicated to dissolving all of your worries and woes away through the use of ASMR techniques. Some are visual-based, some are sound-based, others touch both senses. Allow these ASMR beauty videos to soothe you, through the artists' use of color swirls, interesting textures, and of course, voices whispering directly into a microphone. You'll be sleeping like a baby in no time.

Emily Dougherty is a New York-based ASMR artist who specializes in lipstick smashing. Yes, I said lipstick smashing. She takes brand new tubes of lipsticks and mashes them with a flat serrated knife — the visual aspect of the soft material is what makes her videos so inviting.

I'm intensely soothed by Pat McGrath Labs' Instagram page. Specifically, I love watching the brand's tutorials — they are all silent, making it visual ASMR bait — featuring lip products and eye shadows being applied perfectly every single time.

This video, from artist Laurel Driskill, will have your spine tingling. Driskill whispers sweet nothings at you, as she simulates the experience of applying makeup to your face. Who knew that the sound of taking makeup wipes out of their container could be so satisfying?

ASMR Glow

With over 1 million subscribers on YouTube, ASMR Glow is one of the most popular ASMR artists out there, and many of her videos have beauty/wellness themes. In this video, she gets creative with microphones, eyebrow tweezers, cotton balls, and her own whispers.

ASMR Darling

ASMR Darling is one of my personal favorite YouTube ASMR accounts. Her whispers are easier to understand, and she has a few different roleplay personas that she uses in her videos. In the above video, she pretends to be a bitchy makeup artist, in case you need a bit of masochism with your ASMR.

Fenty Beauty

Fenty Beauty's YouTube channel usually features Rihanna — whose speaking voice is totally blissful — applying makeup. But in this video, the brand enlisted actress Amandla Stenberg to take us through new Fenty launches, ASMR-style.

Ana is a Pittsburgh-based beauty Instagrammer who documents her radical eye makeup looks with quiet videos. You can almost hear the makeup leaving the brush as it touches her skin, and watching the colors swirl together will have you napping in bliss.
