Until then, Claire’s videos started getting more popular, and she gained a steady fanbase. She made several videos like the first one because of her eye shape. Her makeup tutorials helped a lot of people learn how to work with their own facial structures and shapes.

Other than makeup, Claire filmed some vlogs, where she would talk about her life as an adopted child and how it was growing up in another country.

Why did Claire Marshall leave YouTube?

Although she had a steady fanbase and a successful YouTube channel, Claire started to feel like she had grown up from it. She didn’t enjoy making videos so much and started to neglect her page in order to focus on her own life. In 2022 she left YouTube for good. What shocked her fans was the fact that she completely deleted her whole channel along with hundreds of videos. She later explained that she felt burnt out, and her YouTube channel reminded her of an old diary, which was there for everyone to see. Although her audience mostly understood her intentions, a lot of them are sad that they can’t watch Claire’s old videos out of nostalgia.
