How YouTube Creates Online Sensations

Being a celebrity is hard work, whether you’re striving to be a famous actor, singer, make-up artist, and anything in between. Becoming famous took a turn when blogs and social media platforms like YouTube sprung into popularity. By connecting the world and allowing people to share their thoughts, interests, talents and vision by uploading personal videos, YouTube created a new niche of internet fame. People from all over have become internet sensations by sharing techniques on make-up and hair or from creating funny videos that get people rolling on the floor laughing. Most YouTube stars are young and have received recognition from connecting with their fans through comments and filming suggest videos for their followers.

Australian YouTube star Wendy Huang gained her popularity four years ago after starting her own blog. Wengie originally worked at a digital media agency where she told clients they should start and run their own social media and blog pages. Opting to take her own advice she began her beauty blog so she could get an in depth look at the problems her clients faced. Huang had started many blogs before but had never had the dedicated mindset, which is clearly seen in the stunning popularity her blog and beauty channel has gained.

Wengie’s love of make-up and fashion started early in her childhood and with no one to guide her she began reading magazines religiously. In the early stages of internet communities many places had forums for advice which is where she got a lot of tips as a teenager. Wengie states that because of the difference in eye shape than that of models on magazines it was hard to follow their make-up advice, so she began branching out and finding her own way to perfect her look.

Wengie mainly focuses on Asian beauty products and tutorials for women of Asian heritage. With the lack of Asian models in both the American and Australian media, Wengie has taken it upon herself to help fill the gap. Her dedication to helping young women and girls shines through and has made The Wonderful World Of Wengie Australia’s number one Asian Beauty Channel. Her blog has a a multitude of tutorials and also features her YouTube channel. From fashion, to hair, to a virtual tour of her own apartment, Wendy Huang spreads her knowledge and love of fashion and beauty to viewers around the world.
