Meet YouTuber and Social Media Influencer Kelsey Canos

KALE IN ONE HAND, ROSÉ IN THE OTHER

  • 1. Tell us a little bit about yourself?Kelsey

    I grew up in Encinitas, California. Before launching my YouTube channel, I graduated from SDSU with a Business degree in Marketing. I love Pilates and I adore everything wellness. Think: Kale in one hand, Rosé in the other. My goal is to use my channel as a platform to connect with women from around the world & showcase major realness. Let’s just say I have no filter. I really love to tell it how it is, ya know?
  • 2. In three words how would your friends describe you?

    Loyal…Funny…Loving
  • 3. What made you start a YouTube channel?

    For YEARS I have been watching beauty vloggers share all their tips and tricks! It was almost therapeutic for me. I would come home after work and immediately make a cup of tea and watch videos for hours! I became obsessed trying to find the best of the best! I really wanted to create a platform and share my love for all things beauty! I want people to come to my channel and have it be a breath of fresh air.

  • 4. Any plans on how you plan to continue to grow your channel?

    I think the biggest thing is just being consistent & providing content that I am really proud of. I never want to post a video if it isn’t something I wouldn’t want to watch myself. Engaging with my viewers is also really important to me! My channel is a very woman heavy community so I love to get their feedback and video requests! Collaborating is also something I’m open to as long as the brand or company fits with my aesthetic. Quality over Quantity.
  • 5. What are your favorite types of videos to make? What videos can we expect from you in the future?

    My favorite video to film is “What I’m Loving” because it isn’t only beauty its lifestyle too and I feel like I’m just sitting down and chatting with a friend! Expect to see more travel videos! I have a lot of trips coming up and I’m really excited to film for my channel.
  • 6. How do you keep a balance with your personal life and your YouTube channel? Seems like at times it can get stressful…

    I’m a HUGE planner! I have 3-4 different calendars that are being updated every few hours! I love sitting down and planning out when I’m going to film for the week or when a work deadline is due. I think balance is really important and I try to meet at least 2-3 friends a week for either happy hour or just to catch up! My relationships with my friends and family are very important to me!
  • 7. You seem very comfortable in front of the camera – how do you put your best face forward?

    Thank you! I couldn’t help but laugh at this question because in my first video I was a nervous wreck! I filmed it like 6 or 7 times and by the 8th try my family and friends were like JUST POST IT ALREADY! I am a huge perfectionist and I literally critic every detail down to how my hair lays in certain shots. It’s crazy but I really want to be 100% happy with my content! It’s a learning experience for sure!
  • 8. What are some ways you wind down after a long day of filming?

    I LOVE interior design. It’s my obsession! I love going to fabric stores and showrooms and cute boutiques to find decor! When I was like 8 years old I would take huge white poster boards and draw up my dream home and then my grandma would take me to the fabric store and even Home Depot for paint samples for my dream home! My favorite thing to do after a long day of filming is put on my comfy silk pajamas, order in some takeout (sushi) and watch a movie!
  • 9. We heard you use our Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels every morning – what do you love most about them? Do you have any other favorite products from our line?

    The eye gels are a life saver! I’m a night owl for sure! I usually stay up late replying to emails or watching a movie. So the next morning my eyes can be puffy (never cute) but the eye gels are so cooling and the puffiness disappears! Afterwards I always follow up with the Icelandic Relief Eye Cream for a smooth, hydrated under-eye!
  • 10. How does your morning routine differ from your evening routine?

    In the morning I usually press the snooze button until I have only about 30 minutes to get ready. (good job Kelsey!) So being that I’m in a hurry I make myself a quick coffee and get started on my skin care routine. I have a full on regimen that I follow religiously! If I’m ever lazy and skip my routine I totally notice a change in my skin. So I finish my skincare with a heaping amount of sunscreen! Especially my hands since they show the first signs of aging! For night time since I’m not in a hurry I usually make myself a cup of tea and have a total spa night! Yes, I do this like 4 times a week…TREAT YO SELF! I love applying a face mask and a hair mask. My favorite is the OUAI hair mask. Smells amazing!! Lighting my favorite candle and catching up on trashy TV. Hellooo Kardashians!
  • 11. What’s next on your bucket list?

    Travel more!! I have a few trips planned this summer but my next big trip, I’m thinking Italy!
Ciao
