While working at Jarrold's in 2009, Burr copied the advice of makeup artist and sister-in-law Samantha Chapman and created a YouTube channel. Burr left her job two years later to focus on her YouTube channel.
Her earliest videos showed viewers how to recreate celebrity makeup looks. She later began making videos about fashion, style, and baking. Over the years, Burr has collaborated on videos with other YouTubers, including Zoe Sugg, Louise Pentland, Alfie Deyes, Tyler Oakley, and Joe Sugg.
As of January 2019, Burr has over 3.5 million subscribers to her YouTube channel and over 140 million video views. She has over 3 million followers on Twitter and over 3.1 million followers on Instagram. She also appeared on the cover of Glamour UK in December 2015, and Stylist magazine in November 2016.

She released a cookbook titled Tanya Bakes on 30 June 2016. Her third book, Tanya's Christmas, was released on 19 October 2017.
