Hello!

Here’s my favorite YouTuber of the Moment! It’s the gorgeous Kialy (love her name!!!) from PrettyAndPrimped.

I think I subscribed to her eight or six months ago and I’ve never missed one of her videos.

She does a lot of nice, clear and simple tutorials. And she’s very good at it. But the videos of her that I like the most are the chatty ones. Her favorites, her reviews, her first impressions, her demos. And her 2013 Best of Beauty videos were awesome and super helpful.
For being so young (she’s turning 18 in some months), she really knows how to give information and she surely knows how to put on makeup.

She has a great and sunny personality (other than being stunning on the outside). And she talks fast, which does not mean that her videos are redundant or boring. She talks fast because she has a lot of things to say. Informative things, I would say!!!
I even like her more after I discovered that she likes to read. And, honestly, I trust people who read (funny, uh?!). Especially if the books are real masterpieces (she mentioned Hemingway as her favorite writer).

I wish I could get to know her more because I feel like she’s a nice girl to get to know, but I also respect her privacy and very appreciate the fact that she doesn’t blend too much in the whole You Tube gurus community doing and editing videos on that every girl on the web does. I feel like her videos are informative, helpful and very on point. I could not ask for more!!!

She recently got a surgery and I’m glad she says she’s recovery very well from it. She still is uploading videos weekly and I couldn’t be happier!

To sum up, I like her a lot and her videos are worth watching, from the beginning to the end! I suggest you stopping by on her channel and just watch something you might like! She definitely deserves more and more views/subscribers!

She’s one to keep an eye on!

Stay beautiful.

YouTube-r of the Moment: Emma Pickles

October 31, 2013 § 2 Comments

Hello, dearies!

I wanted to write something Halloween-themed today, but I am not inspired at all! Maybe it’s because, here in Italy, we don’t celebrate much this holiday – which is a shame since I’ve always liked Halloween and October in general.

But let’s move on. Today I want to introduce you to one of the best makeup artists around YouTube (in my opinion, of course), who, though having a lot of views and subscribers, deserves more and more. I am talking about Miss Emma Pickles.

maxresdefaultIf I am remembering correctly, she should be in her twenties and she is a true makeup artist (she actually have a certificate or something similar). Her technique is very professional – no surprise that her completed looks are so incredibly perfect. Plus, she has a very versatile (other than stunning) face and she can transform it as she wishes. Sometimes, with her more creative looks, I almost can’t recognize her!!!

She has been on YouTube for two years now, and I have discovered her maybe at the beginning of 2013. It impressed me how good she is with blending and how incredibly creative and original she can be, besides being super talented.

What you’ll find on her channel is a ton of makeup tutorials, more on the bold side instead of natural looks. Nevertheless, even when she does a simple casual look, it’s always so stunning I end up liking the video and put it among my favorites.

In addition, her high quality videos are never long and she always does voiceovers explaining what she is doing very directly and without too much words. I hate watching tutorials that last more than 5 minutes, truth be told! πŸ˜›

Of course, the looks I like the most are those “out of the line”. She has a lot of great tutorials for costume makeup. I’ll link you down below some of my favorite.
Sexy Vampire | Edward Scissorhands | Joker | Snow White | Tim Burton inspired Character | Daenerys Targarien | Masquerade Raven

See? Now tell me she isn’t brilliant!!! After all, I managed to put something Halloween themed anyway, uh?! πŸ˜‰

& that is all for today, sweeties. I hope you’ll have a spooky Halloween! Have fun!

Mean girls rules. πŸ˜‰

Stay beautiful.

You Tube-r of the Moment: essiebutton

Hello!

Today I’m continuing my series around my favorite You Tube-rs I stopped writing about last Spring. Why did I do that?! I’ve discovered new great talents on the web during this Summer and I can’t wait to share them with all of you.

The first one that pops in my mind is EsteΓ¨, aka essiebutton.hair_short_3-600x450She’s a Canadian girl who moved to England recently. She studies Psychology and has a great charisma that keeps me locked at the screen in every minutes of her videos.

Her videos are mainly hauls, reviews, favorites and tags. From time to time she’ll do a “get ready with me” or some kind of makeup tutorial.
Her video/audio quality is one of the best on YouTube and maybe that’s also one reason why I can’t wait to watch all of her videos. Aside from that, she really is so super nice and fun to listen to. She loves skin care maybe even more than makeup and she’s making me add to my wish-list product I would have never considered buying. I remember finding her thanks to a lipstick tag, I believe and..if you like lipsticks (like I do) she really knows how to give great advice! She has recently started a super interesting series about called “Brand Focus” in which she picks a specific brand and talks about it. I’ve found the Bourjois one very helpful.
Oh, and she’s the reason why I want to shop at The Body Shop so badly, these days! πŸ˜›

Moreover, she has been writing on a blog for a while and it’s flawless. She posts in-depth reviews about products she’s loving and again, the quality is top-notch.

Let me know if you’ll check her channel and blog out!

Stay beautiful.

You Tube-r of the Moment: xteeener

Hello!!!

Here’s Christine, xteeener on YouTube!

No, I’m not Asian, but she’s the only Asian beauty guru I can really relate to. There are tons of Eastern beauties on YouTube (Michelle Phan, just to name the biggest!), but I feel like her way of putting makeup on is the one I can really deeply appreciate. I don’t know how to explain it, though! πŸ˜›

Anyway, Christine is on YouTube since 2008 and it shows. She’s very experienced and knows how to cut the chace and get to the point in chatty videos.

Her makeup tutorials are medium-long, but she really explains step to step in the most accurate way. Most of her looks can be worn during day or night – she rarely goes too much crazy about makeup looks! Whenever I need a simple (but still great) everyday makeup look I search in her videos to have ideas. She has a casual/chic style, very similar to the way I dress often.

What I like the most about her is that she really cares for her subscribers, I don’t know how I can prove that, but she makes me feel welcome in every one of her videos.
I find her honest and trustworthy, plus she has a sunny personality that never hurts! πŸ˜‰ I feel like she’s one of those girls who really appreciate what life gives her and, thankfully, even if YouTube (I think) is her job she never takes it for granted. Her hauls show that she’s a very responsible person.

Check her videos out?

Stay beautiful.

You Tube-r of the Moment: SuperBeautyNerd

March 21, 2013 § 2 Comments

Hello!

The series of my favorite YouTubers continues! Today, please, meet the stunning Jess D’Arcy (SuperBeautyNerd on YouTube).

I discovered her looking for an inspired Amelia Pond (from Doctor Who!) look (which I still think it’s one of her best videos ever!) and I loved her since the very first minute!
Just know that I am a sucker for ginger hair, though! I really wish I was born red-head!!!

Anyway, she’s quite young, she’s in her last year of high school (if I’m right, she’s 17) and she’s British. She has no fear in wearing bold/grunge makeup and I would describe her style as bon-ton/edgy.
Of course she posts makeup tutorial and sometimes even hair tutorials, but she’s a pleasure to listen to in her more chatty videos where she explains why she’s loving certain products or when she describes the things she got in her monthly boxes. Her personality shines though the way she speaks and she’s very natural and honest in every thing she does, plus she’s so passionate about the products she loves I end up buying them because of her!!! I feel like she’s a friend of mine (not in a creepy way, though! :P).

I really think she should get more visibility, even if she has a solid subscribers base! She’s definitely one of the best beauty gurus out there and she seems to be very honest about her opinions and true to herself.
I like the fact that some of her looks and makeup tutorials are edgy-er than the ones you usually find online. It means she doesn’t care about trends or stuff like that, but she’s true to her personality (which I always appreciate because it’s with people like Jess that you can’t get bored watching YouTube videos!).
FYI, she’s maybe the main reason I started wearing bold lipsticks. As you know, I am very pale and I think me and Jess have basically the same skin color and undertone so when I see a color that suits her well I tend to see if it works good on me too! Watching online videos of girl with my same complexion makes me explore different makeup horizons! πŸ˜‰

She has a Vlog channel too and..I’m in love with her vlogs, she’s so sweet, funny and I really can relate to her way of thinking! πŸ˜‰

I don’t have much to add, just..go and watch her videos!!! Tell what do you think, after!

Stay beautiful.

You Tube-r of the moment: beautyklove

Hello, hair lovers!

Today I’ll introduce you to The Queen of Heatless Styles: Miss beautyklove!!!

Keren recently turned 23 (thank God for a beauty guru of my age, ahah!) and I discovered her channel maybe two months ago. I had to watch each one of her hair videos and you should do that too. I was amazed by her stunning (super stunning) hair how good she is with hair.
She literally is The Queen of Heatless Styles of the web. I guess she never ever used a hot tool in her videos! If you love to have natural nice waves, curly hair, super bouncy hair or anything that doesn’t concern heat, she’s the one for you.

She is the most creative hair guru I’ve ever seen and she truly inspired me to experiment with my own hair! I know (and we all do) there are tons of tutorials using socks or headbands to get curls, well..she does it with straws. Yes, straws. You read right!!!
(These ones reminds me of the Arwen/Galadriel’s hair in The Lord of The Rings, but I still haven’t found the right thick straws to use! :/)
Oh, and what about her cocoons??? You should check this amazing technique right now!

Her channel is about makeup too, anyway, but I guess she is (and feels) at her best with hair! πŸ™‚

She really is very clear in her tutorials and I feel like she has a very cheerful and sunny personality! She has a super contagious smile and she’s really nice! She has always, and I said always, replied to my comments!
She’s simply a keeper!!!!
Don’t miss her talent, go and watch her videos!!! πŸ˜‰

Hope this suggestion was helpful!
Stay beautiful.

You Tube-r of the Moment: Yunging19

December 20, 2012 § Leave a comment

Hello!

Here is another of my favourite beauty gurus: yunging19!

She’s a homeschooled 17 or 18 girl and she has a super funny but yet very mature (the first time I head her talking I though she was between 20 and 25!) personality. She recently bought an HD camera so her videos will soon increase in quality, but even if her older videos are not in HD they are still worth to watch.
Her makeup is pretty much based on neutral/dark tones and maybe her tutorials are not the best on YouTube, but I feel like she has more potential than she thinks! She has recently became a Sigma affiliate and I feel like she never ever lie about products.
She often posts OOTDs and fashion advice/hauls.

Also, I have to suggest you her Vlog channel too because it’s the one I like the best.
She has the “Girl Talk” series and now she’s going with “Gender Perspective” series as well, along with various rents about life in general and Q&As videos. Even if I’m way older than her I find her suggestions always nice and definitely mature. They have offered me different points of views, sometimes.
Plus, I like how strict and direct she is about life. It’s something I wish I had.

One thing you’ll may notice is that she curses. Pretty much.
But, for some reason, that doesn’t bother me at all. I feel like she gets her point of view better talking like that.
Oh, and did I mention that she’s like a “beauty” version of Jenna Marbles? She’s hilarious!!!

She often replies to comments so. She treats you nice if you do! πŸ˜‰

Hope you will like her channels!
Stay beautiful.

You Tube-r of the Moment: TRUKarategirl96

Hello!!!
Here it’s me introducing you to the super cute TRUKarategirl96!
Yes, I know she’s class 1996, 7 years younger than me and..it’s weird looking girls that young putting of makeup way better than I did at their age (or even now! LOL).
Anyway, she’s not that “old” on YouTube, but she definitely is a keeper.

I first discovered her thanks to her sister (SarahHeartsSparkle) and I fell in love with her more than her sister. She has a skin tone quite similar to mine and I like to follow girls with complexion close to mine! πŸ˜‰

I like every of her tutorials. She’s the main reason why I want to buy more e.l.f. products and the Naked 2! ahah (and that I want blonde hair!)
She knows how to keep it natural, but also build up makeup when needed. Anyway, you’ll never see her wearing too much visible makeup, I find her very soft and natural. After all she’s a teenager, it’s right that way! πŸ˜‰

Speaking of her style, she’s quite casual, but again, she’s a teen so it’s legit wearing sneakers, jeans or comfy clothes.

Her personality is sunny and she always puts a smile on my face. She’s very spontaneous and I find her eyes true.
She’s very religious and I admire how she truly believes in the Bible’s words, even if I don’t. She seems to me that she knows how to live in the right moral way, God or not.

So, do you like her?

Stay beautiful.

YouTube-r of the moment: HelloKatyxo

Hello, my dears!

Today I’ll introduce you to the inspiring HelloKatyxo.

I discovered her during Spring and I never ever miss one of her videos.

She’s one of the younger YouTubers, still in high school. But, she’s not an average beauty guru teen, she’s smart&mature and really worth following. She truly shows herself to the world and I love how she’s not afraid of being herself. It’s a rare thing between teens. She’s the movie girl who doesn’t think she’s pretty enough, but instead she’s beautiful, inside and out.

She has a tendency of buying high end products, which is something that I don’t, but she’s always honest in every word. I like that about her. Plus, her videos (mostly tutorials&favourites) are always perfectly edited and direct to the point.

I stalk her Twitter quite often because I find it as inspiring as her YouTube channel. Because yes, she’s an inspiration to me, even if I’m maybe 6 years older. πŸ˜‰
Of course I love all of her beauty videos (they are never boring or redundant), but maybe the best of her comes in her short films (you’ve got to watch them!) or when she just opens her heart to the camera and let her thoughts go.

I really like her, if you still didn’t get it. πŸ˜›
Check her channel out and let me know or not if you’ve found a gem! πŸ˜‰

Stay beautiful.

YouTube-r of the moment: LillianMasie

Hello! πŸ™‚

The title says all, no other words to add.
Maybe I should’ve written “Favourite Beauty YouTube-r ever“, though. Because, yes, she is.

I’m talking about the delightful LillianMasie.

She’s 21, if I’m not mistaken, and she’s studying to be an actress. Of course she does beauty videos on YouTube (that’s how I found her) and she impressed me from the very first time I saw her because of her calming and soothing voice tone. Then I realized how down to earth she is and I just fell in love. She looks like (and is, to my eyes) an old-times girl, so gentle, so sweet and so polite&graceful. Rare stuff, you know.

The reason why I really like her (and I suggest you all to watch her videos) is because of her personality. She seems extremely sweet, caring and at the meantime real and genuine. She inspires me to be better and sweeter. I love that about her.
I trust what she says and I don’t ever question her opinions. The fact that when she became affiliated with Sigma she posted a video, is a super plus. Most gurus don’t even bother to say that the links are affiliates!

She does mainly reviews and makeup tutorials (if I’m not wrong, she mainly uses drugstore products, I rarely see her work with high-end makeup), but I’ve loved her hair tutorials as well. Plus she briefly reviews her monthly boxes and does makeup&fashion hauls. She has a way of explaining how to put on makeup that doesn’t get me bored even if the video is more than 5 minutes long. She often makes videos out of requests, too. Another plus, right?
After I discovered her I had to watch all of her videos, she’s simply a keeper!

She doesn’t have much viewers if compared to other beauty gurus, and I really think she deserves more. She doesn’t post often, and for this reason her videos are always special. She seems to actually have something to say whenever she uploads a video and not just “for the views”. I literally get happier whenever her vids pop on my subscribers list! πŸ™‚

I would define her style of makeup and fashion very classy, timeless and feminine, elegant and simple. So if you’re looking for colorful and extremely unusual makeup she’s not for you, I guess.

Gosh, and then, let’s say it: she is simply s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g.
I really wish her the best. She deserves it!

Here are some of her best videos, but really..go watch her!!! πŸ˜‰

Review: Revlon Lip Butter” & “Classic&Elegant Prom Makeup

Let me know what do you think, people!

Stay beautiful.
