If you are interested in starting your own channel, there are a variety of videos that you can make. Listed below are some that you can start with along with items to help you achieve it.
What’s In My Bag?
For a what’s in my bag video, YouTubers talk about the current handbag they have been using and the things in it. Here they show makeup products, every day essentials, and sometimes the receipts that pile up at the bottom. For this type of video, you can use this Rode mic that you can mount to your camera. It cancels out any noise coming from the side, focusing on what’s in front.
A vlog it a type of video where you take viewers around with you on a daily basis. It’s a more casual and conversational kind of setup.

In haul videos, you show items you bought from a big shopping trip. This can be under different categories like fashion, beauty, and home. You can also combine them all in one video to give it variety. For this, you can opt to use a GorillaPod. It is a small, portable tripod that has flexible legs. You can set this on your table or wrap it around something sturdy.
YouTubers who are into fashion usually make lookbook videos. This can be based on a season or an event like Coachella. They put together outfits that they plan to wear so viewers can get inspiration.
