Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to discuss another AMAZING member of the new YouTube channel ‘Behind The Beauty’. We’ve already featured 3 of the members: Erica (aka Beautybabe149 YouTube Wednesday: Beautybabe149, the next YouTube beauty/fashion queen has arrived | celindareyesblog), Kenzie (aka kenzieelizabeth YouTube Wednesday: Kenzie Elizabeth…the guru who will help you feel beautiful inside and out | celindareyesblog), and Madison (aka madisonmartineYouTube Wednesday: Madison Martine…YouTube’s latest not so secret rising star | celindareyesblog). Today we are going to talk about another AMAZING member of this channel that also has a very impressive channel apart from the collab channel. So get ready to met your newest favorite beauty/fashion guru (or if you already love her then you have excellent taste), Cicily Boone (aka beautymiss33 on YouTube). Cicily has been able to use her fun personality, and extensive knowledge about all things fashion and beauty related in such a way that I have no doubt that she will quickly build an empire form her channel. So if y’all are ready let’s jump into the blog post!!!
The first video on Cicily’s channel is a review of the ‘One n’ Only’ Argan Heat Ceramic Straightening Iron (Review: One n’ Only Argan Heat Ceramic Straightening Iron), and was uploaded on December 28th, 2011. I really enjoyed this video because it looked really professional, and even though Cicily looked a little nervous, you could definitely see her personality through the nerves, and her natural charisma in front of the camera instantly draws you in. She also did a really good job of talking about why she enjoyed this product, and why it is a good tool to invest in (I mean she made me want to give it a try). I think that this was a really good video to start off her channel, and it makes you look forward to her future videos. Ok, the next video that we are going to discuss is Cicily’s 2013 ‘Makeup and Clothing Haul’, (Makeup & Clothing HAUL | 2013 – YouTube) which was uploaded on April 10th, 2013. Now you all know how much I love haul videos so I was really excited to find this video. I really enjoyed this haul because it had a lot of really cool products and clothing items in it. I also liked that the stores mentioned in this haul are places where most viewers have access to, which is perfect for a fan that sees something in the haul that they would also like to purchase. My favorite part of this video was the fact that Cicily speaks to her viewers the same way that friends speak to one another. I really like it when YouTubers are so comfortable in front of a camera, that you forget that they’re not speaking to you in person. I think that this video definitely proves that in only a year, Cicily was able to grow A LOT as an on-camera talent.
The next video we are going to discuss is Cicily’s ‘Maybelline Baby Skin’ (Maybelline Baby Skin | 1st Impressions – YouTube), which was uploaded on January 14th, 2014. I really like it when YouTubers do first impression videos, because it really gives you an honest look at a product. Sometimes it can be hard to know if a product is really going to work or not based off of a commercial or review (unless the review comes from me, because I always tell y’all the truth). First impression videos allow us to see how a YouTuber feels about a product, as they first experience it. I think that videos like this really allow a viewer to be able to feel like they can trust Cicily when she says a product is good, and this level of trust will just make her fans love her more and more. The last video that we are going to talk about is her ‘Girl Talk Advice with Katelyn!’ video, which was uploaded on September 6th, 2014 (Girl Talk Advice with Katelyn! – YouTube). I really liked this video because you really get to see what a fun, upbeat personality Cicily has. The video is made up of questions that viewers sent in, and covers a wide range of topics such as: boys, beauty, friends, and everything in between. I thought that this video was a really cool addition to Cicily’s repertoire because it gives her viewers a chance to feel more connected with her, and feel like she’s just like one of their friends. I really feel like you can see in this video just how much Cicily has grown as a beauty/fashion guru. I am really impressed how she was able to cultivate her talent in 2 years, and go from a shy young girl with beauty smarts and a camera, to a confident YouTuber that is able to inspire and encourage her viewers to be beautiful inside and out. I am so excited to see where her career takes her, because she is certainly destined for great things both online and off.

Hello people of the Internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to discuss a new collab channel on YouTube that you ALL need to subscribe to. This new channel (called Behind The Beauty, here’s a link to the channel ), is made up of 5 of the fastest rising YouTube stars who will give you lots of fun tips about how to look your best, feel your best, and have a lot of fun. We’ve already discussed two of the YouTubers on this channel (Beautybabe149, here’s the link: YouTube Wednesday: Beautybabe149, the next YouTube beauty/fashion queen has arrived | celindareyesblog and Kenzie Elizabeth here’s the link YouTube Wednesday: Kenzie Elizabeth…the guru who will help you feel beautiful inside and out | celindareyesblog). Since this AMAZING channel was launched last month (here’s a link to the channel’s trailer Behind the Beauty – YouTube), I thought that it would be fun to profile the other two amazing beauty gurus on this channel. So, for the next few YouTube Wednesdays, we are going to talk about each of these YouTubers so y’all can get a better idea of how awesome they are separately, and see exactly why ‘Behind The Beauty’ will soon become your fav channel. First up, we are going to discuss Madison Martine.
Madison Martine is an 18 year old actress, model, fashion blogger, and fashion/beauty/lifestyle guru. She began her blog at the age of 16, and in doing so was able to express herself through her love of fashion. Along with a very successful and popular blog site, Madison decided to further her talents as an entertainer by starting a YouTube channel. She uploaded her first video (a 20 Facts About Me video 20 Facts About Me – YouTube), on March 14th, 2013. I really loved this video because it tells the viewers a lot of fun facts about Madison, and also shows off her fun, laid-back personality. I would highly suggest checking out this video if you want to find out which celebrity Madison is obsessed with, what happened the first time she tried to drive, and what show caused her to be “unable to function” after it ended. The next video that we’re going to discuss is Madison’s ‘Summer Clothing Haul’ Summer Clothing Haul! H&M, Forever 21, & More! – YouTube, which was uploaded on July 8th, 2013. Now you guys know that I am OBESSED with hauls, so I am really excited to share this video with y’all. I really LOVED that Madison didn’t just show the clothes she bought, but also explained how she might style certain items. I also really liked that the clothes she had in the video were stylish, comfortable, but also something that viewers can go out and buy. I think that it’s really important for fashion/beauty gurus to show pieces in their videos that their viewers can have access to, and then add their own individual spin on. The next video that we are going to discuss is Madison’s ‘My Fall Makeup Routine’ video My Fall Makeup Routine! – YouTube, which was uploaded on October 12th, 2013. Even though this video was made for last fall, I thought that it would be one of the perfect videos to talk about with y’all since fall is here once again. I am a HUGE fan of wearing a natural makeup look as you “everyday makeup look”, because it’s simple to do if you have a busy schedule (or you’re just lazy like me because you stay up to late every night watching YouTube videos…anyways…moving on). I also loved that Madison showed her audience how to complete the look step by step, and made the tutorial very user friendly. I am honestly REALLY excited to try out this look, and I know all of you will too after seeing this video. The last video we are going to discuss is Madison’s ‘Healthy Back To School Lunch Ideas’ video which was uploaded on August 17th, 2014. I choose this video because I thought that it would be really helpful for everyone who goes to school and/or works, but also wants to stay healthy (or at least feel like you’re balancing out the pizza you ate last night while watching ‘The Voice’…its ok #nojudgment). I really loved the lunch options that Madison presented, because they were all lunches that I haven’t seen before in other videos, and they actually looked really delicious. I also appreciated that there were dessert options (because honestly who doesn’t love dessert!?!). I think that if you’re new to healthy eating, or just want to give it a try, then this video is definitely a good place to start. I give this video 5 smiley faces!
See told y’all she was an AWESOME YouTuber. Ok Ok, I know that after hearing about all of these awesome videos, you want to go check them out (and you really should) but while you do that, please remember to follow Madison on all of her social media sites (which will be below). Also please subscribe and spread the word about this AMAZING channel (and if you want to share the link to this post I won’t be mad at you). Make sure you check Monday-Friday for new videos on ‘Behind The Beauty’, and also check out Madison’s main channel for new videos.
Keep up with everything Madison is up to!!!

Hello people of the internet on ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to discuss a YouTube video that as of 9/27/2014 has over 500,000 views (and it was uploaded on 9/8/2014, so that’s pretty impressive. This video was uploaded by a man named Prince EA, and is entitled ‘Why I Think This World Should End’ (here’s a link to the video Why I Think This World Should End – YouTube). Now before you jump to any conclusions, this is an inspiring, NOT DEPRESSING video (because honestly we go on the internet to get away from the depression life or situations can cause). If you’ve seen this video then you know why we have to talk about it, if you haven’t then please stay with me here, because you WILL want to know all about this video. And yes I know that YouTube videos are usually reserved for Wednesdays, but this blog goes beyond just talking about the video. Trust me you’ll love it (oh and if any of my former teachers see this post, I promise that I know that you aren’t suppose to start a sentence with and…just putting that out there in the universe). Ok on to the blog!!!
In this video Prince EA speaks about how the world has turned into a cruel, intolerant place, that just seems to be getting meaner and more negative as we become more technologically advanced. He included a really cool Robert Kennedy quote, that would be too long to include here, but basically says that even though not everyone will necessarily change the world on their own, if we all do small things to make a positive difference, then we can change the world together. When I saw this video I was instantly blown away because of how powerful and relatable this video is to our everyday lives. Honestly everyday people are bullied for the things that make them special and unique. Whether it’s how you act, what you enjoy doing, what you believe in, etc., you should and go have the right to be you. Unfortunately as technology and human curiosity has made the world a smaller and smaller place, meanness has also advanced. In the past few years, bullying and other tragedies in the world has gotten a lot of media attention. But if we stop and think about why, the answer is really sad. It seems that as more and more celebrities, young adults, teens, and get ready for it KIDS struggle with eating disorders, self-harm, suicide, and even murdering others, the topics of bullying, and the growth of unkindness in general begin to become more present in our lives. Now when I say “bullying” I don’t just mean hitting someone, or being mean to them in person or online every day. Even if you’re not targeting someone, you can still be a bully. How you ask? We’ll have you ever been mean or lashed out at someone because YOU were having a bad day? Well that mean word from you may be the 100th mean thing that person has heard that week or even that day. Eventually all this can make a person crack. Now even though having bad days or just being in a bad mood is natural, the best thing to do is talk to someone about it, because taking it out on someone else (whether you mean to or not) can just cause someone to hurt themselves, other people, or even you (I know I sound like a digital billboards d or something, but this is all true and VERY important). Recently Disney Channel has announced its’ ‘Choose Kindness’ campaign, where they will try to raise awareness of the effects of bullying through topics discussed on its’ shows, and most likely PSAs (which means public service announcements by its stars). The first two shows to take the lead in this campaign are the popular Disney shows ‘Girl Meets World’ and ‘Austin & Ally’ (which will show episodes where popular characters are bullied for being themselves, and their friends must help them deal work through it). I think that this is definitely a step in the right direction, because if we learn to be kind and positive at a young age, then maybe bullying will disappear or at least not be as bad and common as it is now.
As y’all can see, kindness is a little thing that can really make a big difference in the world (ok now I sound like a PBS special, but you get the point). If we could all just remember these world, “be kind to one another”, then I think that the world would be a happier place for everyone. BTW do you know what great philosopher said those words? Yes the one and only Ellen Degeneres (who said TV wasn’t educational!?!). So since we are a generation that loves challenges and tags, I challenge/tag all of you to share this video (and if you want to share the blog too, that would be awesome…just sayin’), and to also be kind to 1 person a day. Whether that’s a giving them a compliment, calling/texting a friend/family member just to see how they are doing, or just smiling at a random stranger. I promise doing something small for someone everyday may just make you day a little better ( I mean it can’t hurt right?). Just think about something real quick, some of our favorite YouTubers were bullied in school and turned to the internet for support. Now, they’re able to use their popularity and skills to help inspire others, and help them have a place to turn to when life gets just a little too hard. So if they can use kindness and positivity to help others, then why can’t you? I would like to thank Erica(aka Beautybabe149), for mentioning this video on her latest YouTube video about kindness. Without that video I don’t know if I would have found this AMAZING video, so please go check out her channel, subscribe, and if you want to learn more about her, I have a link to a blog post I featured her in here: YouTube Wednesday: Beautybabe149, the next YouTube beauty/fashion queen has arrived | celindareyesblog.

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ I am going to introduce y’all to another AMAZING beauty/fashion/life style guru that you will become ADDICTED to (you’re welcome!). This amazing YouTuber not only shares her amazing style, hair, and beauty tips, but also does fun DIYs (Do It Yourself Projects), cool beauty/fashion hauls, and gives her fans advice about life and YouTube. So if you’re not already a fan of Erica, aka Beautybabe149, then read on and learn why you are missing out on YouTube’s newest hidden treasure.
Erica is a 17 years old beauty/fashion/life style guru, who as of 7/30/2014 has 348,575 total views on YouTube, 3,146 followers on Instagram,17,811 YouTube subscribers, 64 ‘likes’ on Facebook, and 4,074 followers on Twitter. She uploaded her first video, entitled ‘OOTD: Summer Nights #1’ on June 16th, 2012 (OOTD: Summer Nights #1). The video was a great introduction to Erica’s personality, and even though the video is only 1 minute and 46 seconds long, she is able to put her fun, bubbly personality front and center, which definitely leaves you wanting more videos. Erica is also able to show off her fashion skills by demonstrating a really fun, casual look that many would want to emulate (I know I do). The next video that we are going to discuss is Erica’s March 21st, 2013 ‘Q&A 1’ video (Q&A #1 ♡). In this video, she answers fan questions, such as her ethnicity, where she finds the music for her videos, her favorite candy, and so much more! In the video, Erica also talks about how she grew up watching YouTube, and from the early age of 10 years old would make mock vlogs with a flip cam. She said that her family knew about her videos when she first starts uploaded them, but her friends didn’t find out until Erica made a happy birthday video for fellow beauty/fashion guru Bethany Mota ( on another channel with “random” videos), and Bethany commented on, and liked the video. There are a lot of other cool facts about Erica in this video so I would definitely suggest checking it out. Speaking of cool facts, the next video that we are going to discuss is Erica’s ’50 Facts About Me!’ Tag video (50 Facts About Me! TAG) which she uploaded on April 6th, 2013. In this video, Erica discussed her whether or not she has siblings, how long she’s known one of her Best Friends, what ascents she likes to speak in, and what she loves “more than life itself”. I loved this video because the facts were different than your typical ’50 Facts About Me’ video, and Erica was very entertaining throughout the whole video (this video will make you want to be her best friend). Next up we have Erica’s ‘First Day of School, Hair, Makeup, & Outfit’ (First Day of School: Hair, Makeup, & Outfit | Collab with Piperlanee – YouTube) video, which she uploaded on August 12th, 2013. I chose to discuss this video because I know that back to school season is upon is (boo!!!) BUT…that also means back to school shopping, and picking out the PERFECT first day of school look (YAY!!!…don’t you just love how the universe balances everything out!?!). I really loved this video, because the hair and makeup look were simple and easy to do (perfect for those days when you’re running late because your alarm “didn’t go off”…don’t worry I believe you…really I do). I also loved that the makeup look was just a step above natural looking, so it is perfect for all ages to copy. I will definitely be trying this look, and I guarantee that you will look like a supermodel in those hallways if you do too.
Next we have another vlog, where Erica gives her tips & tricks about getting started on YouTube, (which she uploaded on September 1st, 2013, and you can find here My Tips & Tricks: Getting Started on Youtube! – YouTube). In this video, she discusses her 3 number 1 piece of advice, how to deal with haters, and how to network and promote your channel. I thought that this video was a really cool idea because, it gives useful information for aspiring YouTubers, but does so in a positive, upbeat way that fans will love. The next video we are going to discuss is Erica’s ‘Black Friday Haul 2013’ (Black Friday Haul 2013!!! – YouTube) which was uploaded on November 30th, 2013. Personally I was really excited to see this video because haul videos are my favorite type of fashion YouTube videos. I really loved the deals that Erica got (you have to love a guru who knows the true value of a good sale) and it definitely makes me want to the stores she went to this Black Friday, to see if I can get similar deals. Once again, Erica was funny, and fun to watch in this video, and proved that she is a natural in front of the camera. Ok, next we are going to discuss another video that I was really excited about, which is Erica’s ‘DIY Flower Crown + How I Style Them’ video (DIY Flower Crown + How I Style Them!) which was uploaded on July 20th, 2014. I thought that this was a really cool video because flower crowns are a huge trend right now, and if you can find a way to make your flower crown unique, why wouldn’t you. This is also the perfect project for people who love DIYs, or want to be fashionable on budget. With a small amount of summer left, this is the perfect project to celebrate the rest of this season in style. Ok now we’ve arrived at the last video we are going to discuss in this blog post (even though I could literally talk about every video on this channel). The video we are going to discuss is Erica’s ‘Everyday Makeup Routine Summer Edition’, which was uploaded July 26th, 2014 (Everyday Makeup Routine | Summer Edition) I loved this look, because it was light, but was not too light to use as a nighttime look (for those days when you’re in a rush, or just don’t feel like redoing you makeup…I know how you think people of the internet). The look was also simple to replicate, and the products were a mix of high end and drugstore, so the average viewer can most likely have access to all or some of these products. This is definitely a look that I will be trying this summer. I give this video 5 smiley faces (like I always say, I use smiley faces because they are more fun than stars). Erica also has a 2nd channel where she vlogs and has lots of other cool videos that y’all will want to check out.
As you can see, Erica has all the ingredients needed to make her into a YouTube Queen. She has a fun, bubbly personality that will instantly make you fall in love with her, she is well spoken and able to articulate very well in her videos, she is knowledgeable about the topics she discusses, and she has a very close relationship with her fans. I definitely see Erica making a career out of her YouTube channel, and joining the YouTube beauty/fashion elite. She is definitely a star on the rise, and someone to keep an eye on. She may be a secret to some YouTube fans now, but with a growing fans base, and the personality and charm to wow any audience; this won’t be the case for long.
