I bloody love YouTube, don’t you? There are few ways I prefer to spend my time than settling down on the sofa with a cup of tea and a blanket pulled over my legs to catch up on my subscriptions. I mostly follow makeup tutorial and ASMR channels, but in the last few months I’ve also discovered some wonderful vegan creators, advocating a cruelty-free lifestyle through kick ass content. I thought I’d share the love and let you in on the 12 vegan YouTube channels I think you should subscribe to right now.
You may be thinking that 12 is an odd number to choose. As it happens, 12 is the number of vegan YouTubers I am currently subscribed to! I love each channels’ content and had to include them all. If you have any suggestions for channels I’d like, please let me know in the comments!
For the purpose of this post, I’ve used categories. However, these channels all cover varied subjects and certainly don’t stick to these areas!

As I mentioned, I love watching makeup tutorials. I truly appreciate the artistry in a popping highlight, on fleek brows or a killer cut crease and love watching talented individuals make it look so easy. Although not all of the beauty channels I’m subscribed to are cruelty-free (wahhh), most are. Wife Life by Rhian HY is up there as one of my faves; I love Rhian’s sparky personality and fabulous tattoos, and the makeup looks she creates are always varied and suitable to differing tastes. Logical Harmony by Tashina is another firm favourite; I can always count on Tashina for honest reviews of internationally available brands such as e.l.f., Too Faced and Pacifica.

Kiera Rose’s channel is one I’m really glad I discovered. It’s a mix of personal-style vlogs, What I Eat videos and beautifully shot LUSH hauls, among other things. And she has pet rats! If you like watching videos with stunning production value, I’d definitely give Jenny Mustard and LaMadelynn’s channels a look in. Jenny’s minimalist videos cover everything from style tips to life advice and food ideas. Maddie’s channel features whimsical fashion and beauty shoots accompanied by quirky pop songs by bands you’ve never heard of but always end up googling.
If anyone knows how to promote conscious living, it’s Sarah. Her fairly new YouTube channel, The V Nice Life, promises taste tests, shopping trip vlogs, cosy af home tours and cruelty-free favourite videos, among plenty of other content. I love Sarah’s bright personality and always enjoy settling down to watch one of her videos, especially if it features the adorable snorting and snuffling noises her dogs make!
Two other lifestyle channels I really enjoy are Kicki Yang Zhang and Aniqa Dreams. Both channels promote an easy vegan lifestyle presented in a bright, cool way. Kicki’s channel features low-key makeup tutorials and chatty vlogs, all decorated with her signature drawings and designs. Aniqa’s channel offers short videos covering fun food ideas, style look books and tips on living an animal-friendly life.

This is kind of a weird pairing up of two categories, but there you have it! In fact, these two channels do both combine their love of travelling and eating to provide us with entertaining, informative content. Christina’s channel, City Loveee, is perfect if you’re planning a trip and want to make sure you can stick to a vegan diet whilst abroad; she also posts regular lifestyle videos such as What I Eat In A Day vlogs and cruelty-free favourite roundups.
Last but not least, Rose’s channel – Cheap Lazy Vegan – is one of my absolutely faves and the first vegan YouTube channel I subscribed to. Rose’s kooky personality makes her a joy to watch, whether she’s ranting about how shitty Seaworld is, addressing moral questions or vlogging her way around Europe. This channel really lives up to its name, too; Rose has done several eating cheap challenges to prove that a vegan diet is healthy, varied and affordable.
I hope these suggestions give you some great new channels to subscribe to on YouTube! If you have any recommendations for me, please let me know in the comments.
