It’s no secret that beauty vlogging is the fastest growing category on YouTube. However, with this rapid influx of individuals claiming to be the best and brightest when it comes to all things beauty, it’s incredibly difficult to set yourself apart from the crowd. These beauty gurus are unique in look and personality, connecting with their viewers on a much greater level than many others. Kalyn Nicholson and Kathleen Fuentes are two fun and talented women, whose creativity and authenticity will always keep you coming back for more.

Kalyn Nicholson

Kalyn Nicholson is a Canadian fashion and beauty vlogger that is unique in her focus on the entire person. She makes her videos to improve and inspire, starting each individual video with a quote that hopes to bring you peace, happiness, or inspiration as you continue on with your day.  Kalyn’s chill and joyful personality brings peace and serenity to those watching her videos, and also gives off the impression that she would be the perfect best friend. Her vegan and fitness-centered lifestyle allow Kalyn to offer her subscribers an additional service, as she gives unique health and fitness advice every #FitnessFriday. It is easy to see that Kalyn is passionate about life and her work and does her best to make one mirror the other. She has successfully made her hobbies of beauty and fashion into a profession, all the while maintaining a sense of excitement for all that she does. If you have yet to check out her videos, I would highly recommend giving them a try. You’ll go for the beauty advice, but Kalyn is what will keep you coming back.

Kathleen Fuentes 

This Miami based beauty guru is one of my absolute favorite Youtubers due to the fact that she is just so completely real. Kathleen’s authenticity and talent for makeup are what make her so fun to watch. She is not afraid of bold or dramatic looks and achieves them with precision, but also is unique in her often natural appearance. Kathleen often cites the fact that it isn’t uncommon for her to go completely without makeup. That being said, this is possible because Kathleen is completely FLAWLESS – her skin is flawless, her hair is flawless, and, additionally, her personality is flawless. She is an absolutely beautiful individual and completely deserves all the success she has had over the years. Recently, Kathleen has partnered with OFRA cosmetics to create her own liquid lipstick in the color Miami Fever. So, if you are looking for a bold lipstick, or just a fun time check out KathleenLights.

Still, she emphasizes the entire spectrum of beauty, constantly citing the importance of inner peace and beauty as well. Kathleen communicates the fun and entertainment that makeup has to offer.
