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’ blog, we are going to discuss an AMAZING beauty/fashion/lifestyle guru that you all need in your lives. Kenzie Elizabeth (aka PiperLanee, which is her YouTube channel’s name), is a 17 year old rising star who is quickly taking over YouTube. With a fun personality, interesting video, topics, a vast knowledge of a variety of subjects, and a loyal fan base (as of August 8th, 2014 she had 60,862 subscribers and 2,799,929 total channel views. it is easy to predict that Kenzie is on her way to big things in the career of her choosing.
Kenzie uploaded her first YouTube video (a Fall Haul Fall Haul: Steve Madden, Cotton On, Forever 21 & American Eagle! – YouTube) on October 10th, 2012. I thought that the haul was a really cool first video, because it showed that Kenzie likes to explore various fashion styles, and is knowledgeable about fashion. I also liked that the haul included stores that most of her viewers would be able to shop at, which makes Kenzie much more relatable to her viewers. It was also really good that she was clear, and seemed relatively comfortable on screen, which definitely made me want to continue watching her videos. The next video that we are going to discuss, is Kenzie’s ‘First Day of School Hair, Makeup, and Outfit video’ (First Day of School: Hair, Makeup & Outfit | Collab with Beautybabe149 – YouTube), which was uploaded on August 12th, 2013. I chose this video because back to school season is upon us (sad face), so I thought that this video might help you choose your first day of school look. I thought that the makeup look was really cute for school, because it is simple to replicate, natural looking, but also makes you seem as if you put some effort into your appearance (which we all know can be hard to do on school days). I also really loved the hair look, because it was also simple (I like things to be as simple as possible in life), and you can wear this style in numerous ways depending on your outfit. Lastly, I liked the outfit Kenzie picked out because it was cute, trendy, and casual (so you will look like you didn’t try too hard, even though everyone does…oh you know you do!). This video was also a collaboration with Erica (Beautybabe149) who we talked about a few weeks ago (you can check out that blog post here YouTube Wednesday: Beautybabe149, the next YouTube beauty/fashion queen has arrived | celindareyesblog), and is the reason I found Kenzie’s channel, thanks Erica!
Next, we have Kenzie’s ‘Healthy Food’ video which was uploaded on May 1st, 2014 Healthy Food Unboxing + Feed the Hungry | LoveWithFood – YouTube. This video was interesting, because Kenzie discussed a food service that delivers a box of healthy food to your house for $10 a month, and the $10 goes towards giving 1 meal to a hungry child. I thought that it was very sweet that Kenzie promoted a service that allows her viewers to make a difference. The food that was featured in the box also looked really healthy and delicious, so I would suggest that everyone check out this service (link here: Love With Food). I really loved all of Kenzie’s videos, but the last video that we are going to discuss in this blog post is her ‘How To be Positive’ video which was uploaded on July 23rd, 2014 HOW TO BE POSITIVE FT. MOD SUN – YouTube. I thought that this video was really interesting, because positivity is a simple concept in theory, but it can be really difficult to actually do. Kenzie also spoke about a book by a musician named Mod Sun, which is an easy to read inspirational book, full of tips on how to live a life of positivity. Personally I love inspiration/self-help books, so I will definitely be checking this book out. I think that it’s really cool that Kenzie is able to use videos such as this one to show that she is a very knowledgeable, well rounded YouTuber, who has something on her channel for everyone.
Ok, I know what you’re thinking…and no I don’t know how you haven’t already stumbled upon this awesome channel (or if you have, how other people haven’t). But now that you have all seen Kenzie’s videos and think that we can all agree that there are big things on the horizon for her. It is really exciting when you become a fan of a YouTuber right when they are on the brink of greatness, and I definitely think that we are at this point. So please keep watching this video, because I have a feeling that she could definitely become a top YouTuber very soon!
