Tanya Burr became a YouTube sensation almost a decade ago after taking her sister-in-law’s advice (Samantha from Pixiwoo) and created her own channel. She started out making make-up tutorials, favorite’s videos and then slowly ventured into vlogging. Once her channel had gained a respectable number of subscribers, she signed with Gleam management, and that is when her career took off.
Through Gleam she met and partnered up with other YouTubers such as Zoella, Alfie, Marcus, and Sprinkle of Glitter. These top tier British YouTubers featured each other in their videos and attracted more subscribers. Tanya Burr’s husband (then boyfriend) Jim Chapman is also a YouTuber.
Since 2009 Tanya has gained almost 4 million subscribers on YouTube. Aside from YouTube, she also has a strong following on Instagram and Twitter as well — more than 6.5 million followers combined, to be exact.
When it comes to other projects, the pretty brunette has also dallied in acting. She acted in the short film called Disconnect in 2017. Since then, Tanya has also made her stage debut in a production of Confidence.
That’s not all folks! Tanya Burr has launched three books and a make-up brand as well. Her make-up line called Tanya Burr Cosmetics has been widely available at Superdrug and online on her website. However, last year when her acting career took off, she decided to take a step back from her cosmetic venture and focus on her passion.
How did YouTuber Tanya Burr Make Her Wealth & Money? If that’s what you are wondering, we here to spill the beans.
Tanya Burr was born on June 9, 1989, in Norfolk, England. She grew up in Norwich, and studied at Long Stratton High School. She went to a cosmetics school briefly after graduating. Later she landed a job at the beauty counter in a local department store. Ultimately, it was while she was working as a beauty consultant that she decided to create her YouTube channel which was initially called Pixi2woo.
Even though she began with makeup tutorials, she ultimately branched out to include other content (e.g., baking, fashion, and lifestyle). As her channel grew, she also had the chance to collaborate with other YouTube stars such as Joe Sugg, Tyler Oakley, and Zoe Sugg.
By the end of 2018, she had gained more than 3.7 million subscribers with almost 300 million combined views. Some of her most viewed videos to date include We Got a Puppy (3.2 million views), 3 Minute Makeup Challenge with Zoe (5.5 million views), Baking Christmas Cookies with Joe Sugg (3 million views), and Baking Lemon Drizzle Cake with Zoella (3 million views).
With the viewers that she has (her videos typically receive hundreds of thousands of views every day), it seems she pulls in a large amount from her channel. NailBuzz has reported that Burr’s videos generate somewhere around $250 a day from ad revenue; which works out to be around $90,000 annually. In 2019 she has been focusing a lot on her acting career and posts only occasionally on YouTube.
