Shalom Blac is a beauty influencer on YouTube and Instagram. She was catapulted into the spotlight after her collaboration video, “The Power of Makeup” went viral. Born in Nigeria, Shalom and her younger sister were burned when a large pot of hot oil spilled on top of them. After months in the hospital and multiple surgeries, Shalom was bullied at school. Shalom found solace from bullying through YouTube makeup tutorials and decided, as a teen, to start making her own. Her self-taught techniques and positive perspective has been an inspiration to nearly 400,000 subscribers around the world. She has adopted the tagline “Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful”, in hopes to encourage and motivate those who feel invisible and unimportant to stand in their unique beauty. Shalom has been interviewed on Good Day DC and Rachel Ray, featured in Cosmopolitan, Teen Vogue, and named one of People magazines most beautiful people. She has worked with brands such as MAC cosmetics and Makeup Forever.
