Makeup Artist: Shalom Nchom

Shalom Nchom is a 20-year-old beauty blogger born in Nigeria. At age 9, she endured severe burns due to a frying oil accident at her family's store which resulted in second and third degree burns to her head, face, and neck. Because the accident left her with visible scars she was often bullied and stared at which created an anger inside herself, lashing out on people and pushed her to the point of suicidal thoughts.

After meeting with other burn victims and discovering youtube, she started to watch make up tutorials and later picked up the craft herself. She gained a new found confidence, the bullying stopped and her classmates begin to ask her to do their makeup as well, eventually she was charging $5 to $25 per face to her classmates.

 She then started her own channel on youtube and uses her platform to encourage self love(with or without makeup)tutorials and to inspire woman to follow their dreams despite any criticism the world throws at them.
