Shalom started learning to do her own makeup, and she became very good at it. On the outside she looked ~flawless~ but internally she found herself struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts.

The response was overwhelmingly positive, and Shalom started realizing that people were celebrating her for being open about her looks and her experience.


Her mission is to send a message of self-love to her subscribers. She wants people to know that makeup is something she loves doing for fun, but that she loves her face without makeup equally.
