Updated on June 2015
I think everyone knows what Youtube is. We all watched and shared funny or cute videos with our friends, some of us even have pretty cool channels, but there are people whose life has changed completely by Youtube. People, who managed to turn their hobby and passion for creating videos into successful online business, whose Youtube nicknames became their brand names, who travel the world, who made their dreams come true and became rich and famous.
When I read or hear about Youtube stars, I always feel deep respect for them. Not only they are not afraid to broadcast themselves, not only these people are very creative, brave and can find and share unique ideas with the rest of the world, but these people created their own life, own destiny. They didn’t wait to be discovered, or for someone to come and help them become an actor or singer or makeup artist, they just started creating videos, alone in their rooms with their camera (not always the best one) and laptop, sharing their talent and ideas with the world.
They dared to be different. But they also worked hard! Have you ever tried to record 400 videos?!
Although the majority of Youtube Huge Stars are men/guys, there are also girls in all time top most subscribed list on Youtube. There are more than 11 Youtube girls in the list, but I decided to limit my list with 11. I simply like this number :) Also, I didn’t take into account channels by major music stars and tv shows, because they were not discovered with the help of Youtube and their channels were made by PR companies and not by the girls themselves.
So, here is the list of most successful and most subscribed Youtube channels created, managed and owned by the girls. Read about these extraordinary, rich and yet simple girls and maybe it will inspire you to start something of your own!
JennaMarbles joined Youtube on February 16, 2010 and by almost five years of vlogging managed to build her subscriber base to a whopping number of 15 139 327!! Can you imagine that more than 14 million of people around the globe are watching what Jenna has to say every week. It’s incredible. Her videos are always very funny and cover various aspects of everyday life. One of the most popular videos by JennaMarbles – “How to trick people into thinking you’re good looking” – was viewed more than 60 million times. How awesome is that?!
2 – Yuya
Yuya joined Youtube on September 20, 2009 and up to date her Youtube Channel has 10 350 888 subscribers!! Yuya is a very cute Mexican girl, who speaks very very fast (or maybe it seems so to me, because my knowledge of Spanish language is pretty basic) and has amazing quality of videos. In her videos Yuya shows how to apply makeup, some DIY projects, fashion, hair and everything girls are interested in. It is a pure pleasure to watch her videos and if you speak Spanish you should definitely become her subscriber.
Not so far from Yuya in terms of Youtube subscribers is a super cute teenage girl from California – Bethany Mota. She also has videos about everything girls are interested in: hair, makeup, fashion, DIY projects, and basically anything that she loves. Bethany joined Youtube on June 8, 2009 and up to date her channel has 8 815 926 subscribers. Beth’s videos are of a very high quality, she smiles a lot and has a very nice personality. Bethany is a very beautiful girl (this screenshot doesn’t make her justice), so I really encourage you to check out her Youtube channel.
4 – Zoella
Zoella is another beautiful lifestyle blogger and vlogger from UK. Unlike other Youtube stars she started with a regular blog and after it gained a lot of followers Zoella decided to created her own channel. She uploaded her fist video 5 years ago and now has 8 363 228. Zoella shares great tips on hair, makeup, fashion and style. Just an interesting fact, Zoella’s Youtube channel only from January this year till June (during just 6 months!!) gained 1 194 809 subscribers! Rising from 7 168 419 to 8 363 228 subscribers and pushing MichellePhan from the 4th place to the fifth on our list. It is such an incredible result, don’t you think?
5 – Michelle Phan aka MichellePhan
Michelle Phan joined Youtube on July 18, 2006 and up to date her Youtube Channel has 7 760 163 subscribers, which by the way is roughly by 100 000 subscribers more than Beyonce’s (beyonceVEVO – 7 698 686) channel. How cool is that? Michelle was the first to upload makeup tutorials and it proved to be a very successful idea. She inspired a lot of girls to start their own beauty channels and thanks to her online popularity Michelle was hired by Lancome as their official video makeup artist and spokesperson. In 2013 she created her line of make-up for L’Oreal. Michelle was recently honored with the first ever Streamy ICON award, as well as Forbes 30 Under 30 list in the category of Art and Style. Michelle is also the Founder & Executive Producer for FAWN (For All Women Network) – a women’s lifestyle network specializing in the development of female-focused premium content. She also co-founded ipsy.com, a destination for beauty devotees to network, try new products, and watch and upload beauty tutorials.
6 – Lindsey Stirling
Lindsey Stirling joined Youtube in May 20, 2007 and up to date she has a whopping 6 699 343 subscribers. Lindsey is not a regular Youtuber, but definitely a self-made woman. She is an American violinist, dancer, performance artist, and composer. If you like violin music, then you will definitely should check out Lindsey’s Youtube channel. You will be amazed by the beautifully choreographed violin performances that Lindsey Stirling shares on her YouTube channel.
7 – IISuperwomanII
Lilly Singh the girl behind IISuperwomanII is a Canadian YouTube Celebrity, stand up-comedian and vlogger of Indian descent. She joined Youtube in Oct 28, 2010 and has more than 5 817 370 subscribers.
8 – CutiePieMarzia
CutiePieMarzia (real name Marzia Zofia Bisognin) is a UK-based Italian YouTube fashion & beauty vlogger. As her Youtube channel name subtly suggests, Marzia is a very cute young girl with to-die-for long hair. CutiePieMarzia has 5 435 565 subscribers and she started her channel in Jan 16, 2012. It definitely helps gain fast popularity when your boyfriend is famous Youtuber PewDiePie, who has 37 185 983 subscribers and features his girlfriend from time to time in his videos.
9 – Grav3yardgirl
Grav3yardgirl real name Rachel Marie Meyer joined Youtube in Dec 2, 2010 and has 5 126 580 subscribers. I think that Grav3yardgirl is one of the coolest and most unique girl Youtubers at the moment. Her “Does This Thing Really Work?!” video series where she takes a product that is most likely ‘As Seen On TV’ and then tests it out, are both entertaining and very useful. No wonder why she has so many devoted fans.
10 – CaELiKe
CaELiKe is a popular vlogger from Mexico, who joined Youtube on Sep 22, 2010 and now has more than 4 645 638 subscribers. CaELiKe is a beautiful girl and her videos are in Spanish.
11 – Miranda Sings
Miranda Sings is a comic personality created by Colleen Ballinger on Jan 30, 2008 and up-to-date her Youtube channel has 4 199 847 subscribers. May I not comment this channel? Let me know if you are the fan of Miranda Sings and maybe you can tell me more about her.
+ Bonus Girl Youtuber
And as a bonus I would like to add to the list of most subscribed Youtube girls a super cute and “delicious” vlogger – Rosanna Pansino. I love her hit YouTube cooking show “Nerdy Nummies”, which she started in 2011. Although Rosanna joined Youtube on Apr 7, 2010, she gained huge success and as a result 4 037 558 subscribers with her super fun “Nerdy Nummies” show. I really enjoy watching these videos, they are both entertaining and, if you love baking, useful.
So, here is the list of the most subscribed and famous Youtube star girls at the moment (as of June 2015). But when I first published this blog post in August 2011 the most subscribed Youtube girls list looked differently. Only Michelle Phan managed to stay among the most subscribed girls, although in 2011 she was the first and now only the 5th. The other below listed girls either stopped vlogging or stayed almost on the same level of subscribers as in 2011. Its a pity, because these girls had amazing and interesting channels. But I guess times change and people move on with their lives.
2 – Justine Ezarik aka ijustine
Justine Ezarik joined Youtube on May 6, 2006 and back in 2011 her Youtube channel had 1 212 275 subscribers and now in June 2015 she has 2 258 804 subscribers. So Justine is doing great, she doubled her fan base in 4 years. I really admire Justine’s commitment and consistency! Great work. She gained respect as well as work assignments from such huge companies as General Electric, Mattel and Intel. In December 2009, USA Today reported that Ezarik earns about $75,000 annually from YouTube alone.
Justine Ezarik is not just smart and entrepreneurial girl, she is also very attractive and sexy. She was listed as 97th in Maxim’s “Hot 100” list for the year 2010. In April 2011, she was nominated for the Webby Award for Best Web Personality/Host and won the People’s Voice Award in this category.

Chrisitina started her rise to internet fame by posting her videos with cover versions of popular songs and then she released her first single ‘Advice’ and music video. Christina was touring with Selena Gomez & the Scene. In June 2015 she has doubled her subscribers base and now has 2 947 431 fans.
4 – Jodie Rivera aka VenetianPrincess
Jodie joined Youtube on September 14, 2006 and in 2008 she introduced at that time new online video genre – music video parodies. Since then in 2011 her Youtube channel has reached 1 031 787 subscribers. In April 2009, she won the title of Miss YouTube. Jodie truly loved what she was doing, here is what she says on her official website: “I can’t express how grateful I am to have a career that I truly love. I get to connect with people all around the world. People watch me in their offices, schools, homes, etc. I am truly blessed to have such a large platform to reach people.” She stopped doing videos though and lost some of her subscribers.

Natalie vblogs from Sydney, Australia and her videos are usually monologues in front of a camera, interrupted by different funny skits acted out by herself. Natalie was one of the Australian YouTube celebrities who talked about the site at the launch of YouTube Australia in 2007.
According to analytics company TubeMogul Natalie Tran earned $101,000 in 2010 from YouTube advertising. And speaking of dreams come true, in November 2010, Natalie Tran started her global odyssey sponsored by Lonely Planet. How cool is that?
6 – Brittani Louise Taylor
I personally don’t even know what this girls videos are about, because I couldn’t watch them for more than 30 seconds. Sorry! But again, this is just me, because Brittani’s channel has now in June 2015 1 260 723 subscribers!
7 – Tessa Violet aka meekakitty
Tessa Violet (meekakitty) is a vlogger, actress, singer, and former model. Tessa’s videos are mostly humorous with fast cuts and recently she also started creating music videos. She joined Youtube on July 16, 2006 and at the moment her Youtube channel has 1 004 546 subscribers. In 2009 meekakitty won $100,000 in a YouTube competition, where the most commented video would win.
As she writes on her Youtube channel: “Sometimes I turn on the camera. Then stuff happens.”

Incredible! One of the bubzbeauty quotes, which I like is: “Never underestimate yourself. Have faith and Hope in yourself and others.”
10 – Christine Gambito aka HappySlip
Christine’s channel was actually one of the rare channels I watched on Youtube two or three years ago. I think her videos are funny and very creative. Christine is a Filipino American internet personality, actress, and comedian. She joined Youtube on August 31, 2006 and in 2011 her channel had 762 155 subscribers. In January 2008, HappySlip became an ambassador of the Department of Tourism of the Philippines and her travel videos were included in the “Experience Philippines!” campaign and recognized with a Silver Boomerang Award and two Anvil Awards. Christine has also been in video projects for Apple, YouTube, and Intel, and has produced videos for SanDisk, Kodak, and Western Union to name a few. Christine has a successful internet career as well as two sons Micah and Ian, and a lucky husband.
11 – Lisa Donovan ana LisaNova
Lisa was one of my favorite Youtube girls comedians, I really loved her funny and witty videos. She is great and she looks amazing, her videos were always so fun to watch! LisaNova uploaded her first Youtube video on June 7, 2006 and in 2011 she had 709 665 subscribers. She parodied such celebrities as Keira Knightley, Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, Lindsay Lohan, Heidi Montag, Lauren Conrad and Kim Kardashian as well as her Youtube fellow starts such as Hotforwords and Juicystar07. LisaNova founded Zappin Productions, a production company specializing in viral videos and is currently in charge of Creative Development. Unfortunately she stopped uploading videos and her subscriber numbers dropped to 559 033. Hopefully she will be back. Or maybe she has a better career I don’t know about. Anyway, she is a very smart and talented girl, so I am sure that she is successful whatever she does.
So, rich girls, what do you think about these Youtube girls? I think their success stories are really inspiring! And as I have spent almost a full day writing and researching for this article (and continue to update it twice a year since), I realized that it is so great when someone actually writes about you :) I hope one day I will also make it to someone’s Successful Girls List with inspiring story of my own.
Live to inspire, my lovely rich girls!
