The first video that we’re going to talk about is Stephanie’s ‘DIY Pumpkin Spice Milkshake | Starbucks Inspired!’ video, which was uploaded on October 9th, 2014 (check out the video below).

These milkshakes are perfect for a party, or relaxing while you watch your fav YouTube videos, so you should definitely try them out!

YouTube Wednesday: Mel Joy…the YouTuber that you NEED to subscribe to this spring

Hello people of the Internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about a new beauty/fashion guru that Imel joy know y’all will just love! Now if you’re as obsessed with finding great new YouTubers as I am (and I know y’all are), then get ready to hit that subscribe button. If you haven’t heard of Mel Joy, then prepare yourself with the wave of awesomeness that’s about to hit you. So now let’s get to the part you really want to hear about…the videos! Ready? Let’s go!



The first video that we’re going to talk about is Mel Joy’s ‘Instax mini 8 camera review/demo’, which was uploaded on July 27th, 2014 (you can check out the video below). I thought that this was a really fun video to kick things off with because this camera has been ALL over every social media network. It’s so cool that Polaroid style pictures are becoming cool again, because there’s nothing like being able to hold a picture in your hand (and not have to worry about accidentally erasing it). But, this is an expensive camera to just go out and buy, so I thought that it was cool that Mel Joy did a very detailed review of the camera, so you can decide for yourself if this is the camera for you. Next up we have Mel Joy’s ‘Everyday Makeup Routine for School (2014)’, which was uploaded on September 11th, 2014. What I loved most about this video is that the tutorial used a lot of drugstore products (which makes this look so much more achievable), and the finished product leaves you with a very a natural look that will definitely be school/parent approved. This is also a good tutorial for anyone who is new to the makeup world, because it gives you a crash course in what you’ll need to know.

Next up we have Mel Joy’s ‘What’s on My iPhone 5?! + How I Edit My Instagram Pictures’ video, which was uploaded on September 27th 2014. I think that this is the type of video that we can all relate to, because who doesn’t love learning new editing tricks (we gotta grab those like y’all, it just a must). If you want to see if there are any MUST HAVE apps that your fav beauty gurus are using that you don’t have, then definitely check out this video. Now it wouldn’t be a YouTube Wednesday blog post if we didn’t talk about a haul, so here’s Mel Joy’s ‘SPRING/SUMMER HAUL 2015’ video, which was uploaded on April 4th, 2015 (you can check out the video below). Haul videos are awesome for many reasons, but one of these reasons is because we get to ship vicariously brought someone else. This way you feed your shopping addiction, but don’t actually have to spend any money (everybody wins!). This video not only showed off Mel Joy’s AMAZING style, but also shows us that she is a natural in front of the camera. This video (along with her many other awesome videos) will a make you extremely excited to see what her future videos will be like (so hit hat subscribe button so you don’t miss out).

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 made me trust her opinion, and left me feeling like I could continue watching her reviews without fear that she isn’t being truthful about her opinions. She also 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.

YouTube Wednesday: BriannaxBeautyx…the beauty guru who is quickly rising to the top

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about another AMAZING beauty/fashion guru who you NEED to know about. I was randomly looking on YouTube (because I’m always randomly on YouTube), and I stumbled across a channel that I am now so in love with, and I know y’all will be too! If you’re not already familiar with BriannaxBeautyx, then you need to subscribe to her channel right now (I mean like right this very second…finish reading this and then please go subscribe to this channel, because you’ll become obsessed). Brianna is a 13 year old beauty/fashion guru from Ohio, who is also a musician (here’s the link to her music channel: Brianna Nicole). With her knowledge about all things beauty/fashion related, witty banter, and natural on-camera charisma and honesty, I anticipate that Brianna will soon become one of the queens of YouTube. So get ready to meet your newest fav YouTuber.

 

The first video we’re going to discuss is Brianna’s ‘Makeup of The Day’ video (here’s a link: Makeup Of The Day! ), which was uploaded on June 10th, 2012. I picked this video because it’s the first beauty video that she uploaded, and I feel that you can really see her raw talent as a beauty guru. You can really see how a YouTuber grows from their first video, and in 2 years’ time, Brianna has grown A LOT from this initial video. I do think that the look that she shows on this video is a nice, easy to copy look for anyone just starting to wear makeup, because she shows exactly which products and colors she uses. The next video that we’re going to discuss is Brianna’s ’10 Products I would repurchase Tag’ (here’s the link to the video: 10 products I would repurchase TAG!), which was uploaded on February 17th, 2013. I thought that this would be a fun video to talk about because it’s an easy to find out different beauty guru’s favorite products. Personally I like watching these videos because you get honest opinions about lots of different products, so you find out which products you should purchase, and which ones you should skip (so you can save your money and do even more shopping. I really enjoyed Brianna’s video because it was a fun mix of high-end and drugstore products. She also explained why she chose each product, which is perfect for someone who is starting to learn about makeup.

 

Next up we have the ‘Summer Clothing Haul 2014’ video (here’s a link: Summer Clothing Haul 2014! {VS Pink, Hollister & More!}, which was uploaded on June 10th, 2014. Now y’all know that I had to include a haul video in this piece because haul videos are AMAZING! This video really gives viewers a glimpse into Brianna’s personal style. I really liked that the items she showed were trendy, very style neutral (meaning most people would probably like these pieces regardless of your personal style), and affordable enough that if you like the pieces shown you could probably buy the same items, or something similar. The last video we are going to talk about is Brianna’s ‘Back To School: Emergency Kit For Girls!’ video (link: Back To School: Emergency Kit For Girls!), which was uploaded on August 23rd, 2014. I thought that this was a really cool video idea, that y’all would enjoy, and the video is actually really helpful so I suggest you all watch it. I think that Brianna mentions a lot of really good beauty/personal items that you should have with you at school or work. This video will definitely help you avoid a lot of common embarrassing situations so I would suggest you watch this video closely. Lastly, I really love how you can see just how much Brianna has grown as a YouTube over the past 2 years. I’m really excited to see where she goes from here, because she is definitely a star on the rise that we all need to look out for.

YouTube Wednesday: Natasha Bure, meet YouTube’s newest rising star

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ blog we are featuring Beauty Guru/Singer Natasha Bure. This young rising YouTube star has only been on YouTube for a short time, but has already proven that she is very knowledgeable about beauty, fashion, and how to capture the undivided attention of an audience. At the young age of 16, Natasha has shown through her videos that she is an intelligent, charismatic young entertainer who will very soon take the internet by storm. It’s easy to see where Natasha’s talent as an entertainer comes from, if you consider the fact that her mother is actress Candace Cameron Bure (who most know as DJ Tanner from the highly popular sitcom Full House). Trust me, once you see one of Natasha’s videos, you will instantly become a fan and will also want to see this young talent blossom into the next YouTube queen.

 

Natasha uploaded her first YouTube video on August 11th, 2014 Natasha Bure Official Youtube + All About It).  This video was an introductory video that tells viewers what to except on the channel in the future. I decided to mention this video not only because it is the first one on the channel, but also because even in a video with such sole content, Natasha is able to show that she is funny, relatable, comfortable on camera, and most importantly, very fun to watch. The next video that we are going to discuss is Natasha’s ‘August Favorites’ video which she uploaded on August 21st, 2014 (August Favorites ). This video covered Natasha’s favorite beauty/skin products, movies, and miscellaneous products of the month. I really loved all of the products that Natasha mentions in her video, and I also loved the mixed between high end and inexpensive items that she had in the video, I definitely think that this makes the video appeal to a wider range of audience. In this video, Natasha also allows her bubbly personality to shine, and certainly will make everyone wish they could be her BFF (also, the mean girls reference was great…Glenn Coco would be so proud). The final video that we are going to discuss in this blog post, is Natasha’s ‘Back To School Style + What’s In My Backpack’ video which was uploaded on August 29th, 2014 (Back To School Style + What’s In My Backpack). I really thought that this video was perfect to showcase because back to school time is now upon us. I absolutely LOVED the outfits that Natasha showcased because they’re cute, stylish, perfect for a wide range of styles, and school/parent approved (got to keep those ATMs…I mean parents happy…just kidding, we love them). I also really loved how Natasha was able to show how back to school style can also extend to school supplies. She was able to show pieces that were both efficient and cute. You gotta love a girl who’s so stylish that she makes you want to even copy her school supplies style (and trust me you will want to).

 

Didn’t I say see was amazing? As I’m sure you can already tell, Natasha is on her way to become a top YouTuber. I think that what really sets Natasha apart from all of the other beauty/fashion gurus on YouTube, is the fact that she is not only knowledgeable about both topics, but she also has an incredible level of comfort in front of the camera. She also has the ability to quickly gain an audience, in fact in only a month on YouTube (as of September 10th, 2014); she already has 2,436 subscribers, and 23,957 total channel views.  She also has over 72,000 followers on Instagram (which achieved in about 7 or 8 months), and 1,960 Twitter followers (which she accumulated in about 1 month). So as you can see, Natasha is quickly becoming the internet’s biggest not so secret talent. I am very excited to see where Natasha goes from here. It will be fun to see just how high this young star rises.

YouTube Wednesday: Weylie Hoang. The beauty guru. The fashion expert. YouTube’s favorite “big sister”

Hello people of the internet! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to discuss a beauty guru who has turned her amazing beauty/style skills, fun personality, and natural cantor into a very successful career. Weylie Hoang (known on YouTube as ilikeweylie) has successfully forged her own path by figuring out how to connect with her audience in such a way, that they cannot click away. Although it was not overnight, Weylie is a prime example of what dedication, passion, and a little humor can accomplish. If you haven’t ever heard of Weylie (what?!?) then you definitely need to continue reading, so you can discover how she captured the attention of the world with only a camera, personal knowledge about beauty/style/and life, and her humor. Trust me; you will be amazed at how much you want Weylie to be your new BFF.

 

Weylie Hoang was born in Oakland, CA in 1993. She stated in her ‘Draw My Life’ video (which you can see here Draw My Life | ilikeweylie – YouTube) that due to her parent’s busy work schedules, that she and her older sister was raised by her grandmother. Weylie has stated that she grew up in a house with several of her extended family members, and early on in her childhood, her family lost their businesses, and suffered financial crisis as a result. Due to their financial stress, Weylie’s parents constantly fought, and Weylie’s mother was physical abusive towards Weylie and her sister. Weylie also stated in the ‘Draw My Life Video’, that although her family continued to go on annual family vacations, her parent’s relationship continued to deteriorate, as well as Weylie and her mother’s relationship. Weylie has also stated that she experienced bullying throughout her elementary and middle school years, and as a result, attempted numerous times to commit suicide. Fortunately, Weylie has said that she and her mother now have a good relationship, due to the fact that Weylie wrote a letter stating why she hated her mother, and her mother found it and was then able to mend their relationship. Upon graduating from high school, Weylie attended FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising), and 1 year later moved to the FIDM campus in Los Angeles, CA.

 

On July 23rd, 2008, at the tender age of 15 years old, Weylie posted her first video on YouTube, and thus began a journey that would soon turn into a promising career (check out that first video here: Pink/Orange eyes tutorial | ilikeweylie). Weylie’s first video, shows her demonstrating how to masterfully apply a very cool pink/orange eye shadow look. Weylie continued regularly posting videos, and slowly gained a loyal fanbase. According to a 2013 interview with the videoink.com, Weylie began becoming widely known on YouTube in 2010 (here’s the link to that article For Weylie Hoang, Beauty Goes Beyond YouTube – VideoInk). As Weylie’s popularity grew, her videos began to become more diverse, and she began to not only post tutorials, reviews, and fashion hauls, but also tag videos, advice videos, and random videos of her speaking to her audience (definitely some of my favorite videos, because she is so HILARIOUS). Weylie’s rise to the top has not been an easy one, due to the vast amount of haters that she has experience on the internet. At one point, Weylie actually stopped making videos, and stated in one of her videos that although there were numerous other factors that led to her YouTube absence, the amount of hate she received was one reason. Weylie has stated that she ultimately hopes to launch her own beauty line, and as of the publication of her 2013 interview with Videolink, she is currently taking pre-orders for her first line of makeup brushes. Weylie has said that ideally she wants her products to be sold in stores such as Target, so her fans (who she says are mostly teenagers) can easily purchase the products.

 

So…go on admit it, you know you want to be besties with Weylie…yes you do…see its ok we all do! It’s obvious from her videos, that Weylie has been able to use her personality to make her channel completely relatable to the average viewer (in business this can be summed up in too words…pure genius). YouTube, and the Internet in general is definitely the future of media, and it’s individuals like Weylie that are at the forefront of this future. She is certainly a bright spot in the fashion/beauty industry, and I predict that her star will only continue to rise as she goes further on her career. Just as Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari used the popular reality shows ‘Laguna Beach’ and ‘The Hills’ to l propel them into the industry, many young aspiring fashion/beauty moguls now use YouTube as the “ground zero” of their careers.  Michelle Phan and Bethany Mota are perfect examples of what a successful YouTube channel and loyal fans can accomplish. Besides having a vast knowledge of beauty and fashion, Weylie has proven that she is a great role model for the importance of continuing to follow your dreams despite where you come from or what you experience in life. I believe that due to the fact that Weylie has always been very honest with her audience, they have learned to trust her and thus she now shares an unbreakable bond with them. I truly believe that it is not a matter of “if”, but rather a question of “when” this ‘superstar of the web’ will use her channel for worldwide domination.
