Robert Welsh (b. March 12, 1989) is probably not a new name in the makeup industry, but he is also not the most famous makeup artist out there. He is, however, working diligently to change that, and so far, his hard work surely had paid off as he has managed to collaborate with the most loved makeup brand, Rare Beauty, and its creator Selena Gomez.
Born in Surrey, England, Welsh is an English makeup expert and YouTuber who has been in the makeup field for the last 15 years. However, he started getting recognized for his in-depth tutorials and routine videos only through his channel, Robert Welsh with 949K subscribers. He has an older brother named Marcus Welsh and an identical twin named James Welsh, a skincare expert and YouTuber.
How Much Is The Net Worth of Robert Welsh? More on His Collab With Selena Gomez, The Double Cleanse Podcast, Welsh Merch.
As per estimating sources, Robert Welsh holds a net worth of around $300,000 thanks to his 15-year career as a make-up professional. His income is not only limited to it as he also earns good bucks from YouTube AdSense as well as social media sponsorships and brand endeavors. Besides, he also launched merchandise with his brother James Welsh as Welsh Merch.
Robert, who is originally from Surrey, England, resided in London in order to pursue his dream to become a makeup artist at the age of 18. Coming from a financially not-so-strong background, he could not afford to study in a make-up school, so he worked as a make-up artist aka MUA for MAC Cosmetics in London. There, he worked for over seven years in three different stores.

Following his brother's success in social media, Robert also tried his luck and launched his eponymous YouTube channel, Robert Welsh in May 2015. He now has over 949K subscribers on his channel from which he makes an average of $600 per video. Besides, he has collaborated with numerous beauty brands like Sigma Beauty, ColourPop, and Illamasqua.

Among all the videos, his GHOST SERIES AND MAKE UP series is the most popular among the fans where he recites different ghost stories while doing make-up every Monday. This make-up series was inspired by another YouTuber and make-up artist, Bailey Sarian, who is known for her Murder, Mystery & Makeup series on YouTube.
To carry forward his YouTube fame, he then launched into other social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok. With over 307K followers on his Instagram page ROBERT WELSH (@robertwlsh), he makes around $1,200 per sponsored post. Similarly, he has over 202.4K followers on his TikTok page (@robertwelshmua) where he posts make-up tutorials and hacks.
Besides, he also has another collaborative YouTube channel, The Welsh Twins, which he runs with his twin brother James. They have garnered over 279K subscribers on their channel from which they earn around $800 per video via ad revenue and sponsorships, and they have posted 85 videos.
Meanwhile, the Welsh twins also host the podcast called The Double Cleanse where they try to discuss everything about skincare problems, how to perfect your makeup and the realities of social media influencing and advertising. Moreover, the brothers even have their own merchandise with the name Welsh Twins Merch where you can find different types of branded apparel like hoodies, tees, face masks, and stickers.
