Eleven years ago, a tragic accident at Shalom Nchom's family restaurant left her with severe burns across her face. After struggling with her self-confidence for several years, Nchom is now a successful makeup artist using social media to send a powerful message to her some 40K fans.
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.
This burn survivor posts incredibly moving makeup tutorials
