If you're a beauty addict, you're probably well versed in the sheet mask game. But…
Makeup is a powerful tool that can undoubtedly be used for fun, but can also help people in a much more dramatic way. Shalom Nchom (who goes by Shalom Blac on her YouTube channel) is a burn survivor who proves that makeup is a way to feel confident in your own skin, no matter what.
After an accident involving hot oil when she was just nine years old, Nchom turned to makeup as a way to transform herself. Now, with nearly 400,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel, she’s inspiring others who might feel uncomfortable in their own skin by posting incredible makeup tutorials that help highlight the most beautiful assets of a person’s face.
In one of her YouTube videos, Nchom starts off completely fresh-faced and smiling — and you can’t deny that she’s a natural beauty. But when she starts walking through her tutorial, first putting on a glamorous honey-hued wig, then using foundation and powder to create a perfectly-contoured canvas to start building her makeup transformation, it’s clear to see that she knows exactly how to make a face look extraordinary! At the end of the video, Nchom looks like an absolute diva, and with the help of makeup, it’s clear she feels like one, too.
