When Shalom Nchom was 9 years old, an accident involving frying oil left her with severe burns on her face, neck and shoulders.
Since then, the young lady has been showing her YouTube subscribers how to use makeup to hide scars and acne.
However, in a recent “Power of Makeup” tutorial video the vlogger demonstrates how important self-love is and whether you find it through wearing makeup or not.
Throughout the tutorial, she puts makeup on half her face, leaving the other half, and her burns, exposed, as Nchom invites her viewers to see the difference but not to assume one is better than the other.
In the beginning of the video, she explains “[The power of makeup challenge] is where you do half your face and then half your face you don’t do anything to it. So you can see how makeup can actually make a difference. And the other thing is showing you can love yourself either way, makeup or no makeup.”
