I've watched several of her makeup videos, and they are indeed remarkable. She is a very talented makeup artist. Here's one of her transformations:

you get a small percentage of the ad revenue but its such a very tiny amount that unless you getting tons of views a day it really doesnt amount to more than just small pocket change, plus more and more people now have ad block anyway.

in the old days of Youtube the renumeration was mostly in the form of revenue-sharing by becoming a Youtube "partner", but based on what some agents in the industry out here in LA have told me they've actually switched to contracts with their bigger stars and have a big hand in channel development & content creation, almost like a cable network. Depending on the number of subscribers and view count some of these "actors" can pull in $20~50k+ a yr, enough incentive for them to put in some effort in their videos, but not enough to buy a home & raise a family, which is why they all tend to be under 30 yrs old.

That isn't her. This is her...she has 4.7 million subscribers on her channel...she has her own blog, site, etc...she had mentioned about her mother not having to work anymore as a result of youtube. I believe alot of other gals followed suit to create their own online makeup tips afterwards...Michelle was doing this back in 2006 when youtube was in its infancy. She does different looks(Vampire, Games of Thrones, Lady Gaga, Barbie, Snow White, etc) as well as other looks that many fans request.

I read somewhere the guy who was providing all the machine guns and stuff for the FPS Russia videos got murdered.
I think professional Russian is making videos with some woman under a different pseudonym now.

Default not much money

Its like talking about entertainers, for every band that sells a million cd's there are thousands that sell just a few thousand , for every actor who makes a millions dollars an episode or 20 million a movie there are thousands that make less than that kid working at mcdonalds.The problem is that there a millions of videos on youtube ,unless there is something unique about yours and people start to talk about it. its just part of the background noise.for example I made a video about turning a large jawbreaker on my wood lathe. Initially I got the usual 1 or 2 views a day then some website talked about it and then another and then another and I was up to 20k views a day. It didnt last long and iteventually settlded down to a few dozen views a day after a few weeks, but it shows you when something that catches the views attention you can get a big blast of views.If I'm right you only get $1 per 1000 views and now finally after 6 years I hit my one millionth view on my youtube site.Thats $166 a year , I guess I wont be ordering that periwinkle blue rolls royce anytime soon.
