Meet the quadruple amputee makeup artist taking the world by storm

Kaitlyn Dobrow is an inspiration. The 21-year-old is a quadruple amputee -- she lost her arms, legs and over half her skin to meningitis when she was only 19.

But that hasn't stopped her. Three years and 20 surgeries later, the young woman has made a name for herself in the beauty industry. Her inspirational posts cover far beyond makeup, but instead how she's managed to cope and grow from her near-fatal disease.

Her Instagram and Youtube videos, which cover have garnered thousands of followers, cover her day-to-day life. And boy, does she have a sense of humor.
