YouTube Wednesday: xxmakeupiscoolxx…the beauty guru whose channel is as cool as her name


Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about a YouTuber that I have been addicted to for a LONG time, and that I know y’all will love! If you aren’t already watching Katharine Ward (aka xxmakeupiscoolxx) on repeat, then you are missing out. Through her videos, Katharine is able to show that she is a funny, clever, fun to watch YouTube guru who is very knowledgeable about makeup, fashion, and so much more. I really love it when a YouTuber shows that they are multitalented because it makes their channel more interesting. Trust me, once you start watching Katharine’s videos, you will not be able to stop. So if you’re ready to meet your favorite new YouTuber then read on!


The first video on Katharine’s channel is her review of the ‘Mane and Tail’ shampoo and conditioner, which was uploaded on May 10th, 2012 (here’s the link: Review: Mane and Tail Shampoo). I really liked this review because it’s the first time that we really get to see her personality shine through. I really like the review because it’s detailed but not boring, and basically answers any questions you might have about the product. Katharine really makes me trust her opinions, and left me feeling like I could continue watching her reviews without fear that she isn’t being truthful about her opinions. I should look up if she’s tried glo minerals makeup because that has been recommended to me by friends a few times. I feel that I could trust her opinions on it. Another thing I like about Katherine is that she seems to be very comfortable in front of the camera, and makes you want to continue watching her videos.

The next video that we are going to discuss is Katharine’s ‘Dad Does My Makeup’ tag video, which was uploaded on August 13th, 2013 (link: Dad Does My Makeup). This is probably one of my favorite tag videos ever, because Katharine and her dad are so much fun to watch. It’s really cool to see the great bond that they seem to have, which made the video really interesting. I also thought that having her dad do the tag video with her was a really interesting idea that made the video really unique. It was also really fun to see that her dad seemed to take the tag seriously and actually knew what the cosmetics were called and how to use some of them (bonus points!). I liked that the video was an interesting balance between seriousness and fun.


Ok, next up we have Katharine’s ‘Valentine’s Day Hair and Makeup’ tutorial which was uploaded on February 2nd, 2014 (here’s a link: Getting Ready ♡ Valentines Day Makeup & Hair Tutorial). I thought that this would be a really awesome video for y’all because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. I absolutely loved this tutorial, because the hair and makeup looks were cute, fun, and not too over the top. This tutorial is really easy to follow, and is a look that you recycle for any occasion where you want to look cute but not like you’re trying too hard. The last video that we’re gonna talk about today is her ‘Black Friday Haul 2014’ video which was uploaded on November 28th, 2014 (here’s the link: Black Friday Haul 2014!!! + AM I DOING VLOGMAS?!). You know that we can’t have a blog post without a haul video included, because haul videos are life. So….here it goes! I think that the best thing about watching Black Friday haul videos is that you get all the excitement of shopping without having to actually go out and do it (or spend money). I absolutely loved that the haul showcased various clothing pieces and other fun stuff, so there is something in the video for everyone, no matter what your style and tastes are. Doesn’t all this make you want to check out Katharine’s other videos? Me too! Make sure you subscribe to xxmakeupiscoolxx, and also follow Katharine on all of her social media accounts below.
