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.
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 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'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.
