7 Women You NEED to Follow on YouTube

While YouTube does have a lot of funny fail videos and cute cat videos, there is another side of the site that every collegiette girl should know about! There are countless inspiring, amazing women on YouTube who vlog their lives and create lifestyle or beauty videos. If you are going to procrastinate with some you-time on the Internet, you might as well be inspired while doing it! Here are seven of our favorite women on YouTube that you need to check our ASAP.

Meghan Rienks

Meghan isn’t your typical lifestyle youtuber. She’s hilarious actress that lives in LA who also happens to be gorgeous! All of her videos are so funny, and she is so real in them.


Katy is a college girl who keeps it real on camera. She is so honest and true to who she is in all of her videos and gives great advice. She also does super creative and inspiring beauty and lifestyle videos!


Nikki Blakketter

Need some fitspiration? Check out some of Nikki Blakketter’s videos! She has been working on being as healthy and strong as she can for years now; her vlogs take you through the highs and lows of her fitness journey. You will definitely want to get off of the couch and hit the gym after checking her channel out.

Marissa Lace

From fitness and fashion, to make up and lifestyle, Marissa’s channel has it all! A beauty school graduate, Marissa is amazing at hair and makeup, but also has a super creative mind. Did we also mention she is funny, smart, and pretty? Her channel is sure to inspire.


Aspyn + Parker

Okay, so this one is a girl and boy, but their channel is so great we had to include it! These two are the cutest couple ever (can you say #relationshipgoals?) and actually just got married a few days ago; Aspyn is fabulous (you should also check out her beauty/lifestyle channel) and Parker is so cute. Their lives are so fun to watch, and their videos give you hope that your own Parker is out there. Here’s their wedding video!

Casey Holmes

Need some makeup tips? If so, Casey is your girl! Not only is she so incredibly talented and creative with makeup, and is hilarious and so sweet!

Ingrid Nilsen

Ingrid, in our opinion, is an incredible soul. She has two YouTube channels: a primarily lifestyle, beauty, and fashion videos and her vlog channel. She focuses a lot on living a simple, fulfilling life, and often makes videos on overcoming anxieties. She is all about loving yourself, and accepting who you are. If you need a good cry, watch her coming out video where she explains so beautifully, “I want to live my life unapologetically because I’m proud of who I am, and I’m not gonna apologize for who I am anymore… I’m giving myself my best chance, and so should you.” A few months ago, she started a series on her vlog channel titled “Five Minutes For Us” (#5MFU for short), where she sits in front of the camera for five or so minutes just to chat. She is an inspiring and strong woman who anyone will benefit from watching.

Lauren is a senior Marketing major, with minors in Economics and Gender & Diversity Studies at Xavier University. She calls Nashville, Tennessee home, and is the Campus Correspondent and President of HCXU. When she is not writing, she is planning events on the Student Activities Council, building her resume with her brothers in Delta Sigma Pi, or making random Spotify playlists. She is a Diet Coke enthusiast, and wishes she could spend every day hiking or playing with her dog.
