Stars are popping up all over popular social media sites whether they’re known for their comedy, baking expertise, gaming advice, or beauty tutorials. Now it takes less than a minute to upload and share a five second video with hundreds, even thousands, of people all over the world. This modernized way we as the human race has built connections, started communities, and given people without guidance a person to turn to even for the simplest things. Wendy Huang, a widely successful and popular YouTuber and blogger from Australia, has created an entirely new career helping women with beauty, diet, make-up, and hair tutorials.
The Wonderful World of Wengie has become Australia’s number one Asian beauty channel and is run by Wendy herself with the utmost care and dedication. Though her blog started as a side project to help her connect with customers at her old job working, the blog itself has flourished into a massive community aimed at women of Asian decent who have little representation in the media. With predominately European and white models gracing magazines not all hair and make-up tips work for women who have different features. Wengie herself felt that strain back when the internet was based off forums and chat rooms. Since Huang had no help of her own she began experimenting with make-up to find the best application and look for her features.
If you venture over to her website you’ll find a myriad of topics Wengie goes over as well as a link to her YouTube tutorials and bright, colorful pictures of her personal space, her street style, make-up, and hair styles. Wengie also reviews trending Korean beauty products which have been gaining popularity in the world of beauty. Her blog posts are informative, sometimes personal, but always aimed at helping or discussing a topic her fans would benefit from. Huang’s deep dedication is apparent in the loving care she gives to her fans and blog. The consistent updates, happy replies, and helpful tips she’s given has helped countless women of Asian decent who would otherwise be left in the dark.
