Under the username makeupbyshalom, the Maryland resident posts makeup tutorials of her dramatic transformations, inspiring others to be confident about the way they look -- with or without makeup on.

According to Buzzfeed, she wants to use these videos as a way to connect with her fans, and hopes that people watching, "can not only learn how to do makeup, but to learn to live and love themselves for who they truly are."

Check out some of her amazing looks below.
