A Parent’s Guide to SaraBeautyCorner – DIY, Comedy, Makeup, Nail Art (Youtube Channel)

IMPORTANT: I have not watched every video on this channel, but I have watched several. This article was made to get a general feel of the channel, and probably does not record everything that specifically happens on the channel.

SaraBeautyCorner – DIY, Comedy, Makeup, Nail Art

Type: DIY, Lifestyle

Video Types: Sara does a lot of DIY videos, with the occasional comedy video that parodies life as a girl.

Quality

Acting and Composure: 3/5 Average: Sara portrays herself as cheerful and enthusiastic and seems genuine in her persona. Her comedy and introductory are a little cheezy but are not painfully so, and she still seems to be truly enjoying her work.

DIY Usefulness and Ease: 4/5 Well Done: The DIY are pretty simple and easy to understand, with the occasional crafting tool, but rarely anything too complex. Also, most of the products would be useful for something or do would do what the video says they would do.

Camera and Microphone Quality: 4½/5 Amazing: While old videos have about an average quality, the current has good sound and beautiful, clear images.

Overall: 3½/5 Well Done: The quality of the DIY and comedy videos is pretty good and helpful if one want to make a home made Halloween costume or phone case, even if the themes are juvenile. I think girls six to thirteen would enjoy the channel best, though someone older may find something useful on it.

Moral Content

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: 1/5 Slightly Suggestive Clothing: Sara wears shorts, shows her midriff, and is sometimes in the shower wearing a swim suit top that shows cleavage. In a skit, she gets ready for a date and shaves her legs. She sometimes kisses at the screen.

Violence: ½/5 Light Violence: Characters get hit with snowballs.

Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 1/5 Light Swearing: “OMG” is in a video title. God’s name is taken in vain rarely, and “kick-ass” is used at least once on the channel. Slang like “pimp you up” or “pimped out” is used.

Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: ½/5 Some Lightly Disturbing Content: In a comedy video, fake blood comes out when a girl cuts her leg while shaving it and pops a pimple. A woman looks at a magazine with soldiers and burning stuff. Some pranks show you how to make fake blood.

Religious Issues: ½/5 Light Mention: Sara wears devil horns in a Halloween video.

Magic: 1/5 Brief Magic Mentions: There are videos with Halloween costumes and pranks. One video tells a fairy tale and a fairy saves a girl and makes water. Unicorn decorations are sometimes used. “Magically” is used for descriptive purposes.

Others: Some videos show children how to sneak food and makeup into the classroom. Most music in the videos has a beat to it. Dancing is mentioned and Sara sometimes dances a little. Sara sometimes wears shirts with famous characters in movies on them, such as the Trolls movie. Sometimes other Youtubers channels are mentioned, such SoCraftastic and Gillian Bower. one showing a picture of the Simpsons on the Youtubers page. There are occasional references to social media such as Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. BB-8 shows up in one video. She once says “You shall not pass!” which may be a reference to The Lord of the Rings.

Overall: 2/5 Child Appropriate: Most DIY videos are probably appropriate for all ages, but parents may want to wait for their children to be a little older before they watch the skits, which sometimes include light cursing and topics such as dating. The only videos you may want your kids skipping out on are the ones that show your kids how to sneak things into class like food and makeup.
