Makeup or no makeup, you should love yourself any way you are.
We’ve seen many young women via social media use makeup to completely transform themselves. Makeup gives us the option to make us into a different person or to simply highlight what we like about ourselves. For Shalom Nchom makeup was a way to protect her from bullies when she was a young girl.
Shalom Nchom is a 20 year old makeup artist from Nigeria who now lives in Maryland and has a popular YouTube channel were she posts her makeup tutorials. Shalom suffered burns to her entire head, shoulders and face when she was 9 and living in Nigeria. Her mother owned a grocery store on a university campus where she would also fry fast food for the students as they went from class to class.
This 20 year old burn survivor shows the magic of makeup in her amazing video tutorials.
