Welcome to YouTube Millionaires, where we profile channels that have recently crossed the one million subscriber mark. There are channels crossing this threshold every week, and each has a story to tell about YouTube success. Read previous installments of YouTube Millionaires here.
Christen Dominique has found success by sharing her makeup skills with her fans, but while she may be a master with her brush, she makes sure to remind her viewers that beauty is only skin deep. Some of her videos preach body positivity and natural beauty, and for her viewers, that can be an inspiring message.
Of course, Dominique shares plenty of strong looks too, and those videos have led her to one million subscribers. Here’s what she told us about her work:
Tubefilter: How does it feel to have one million subscribers? What do you have to say to your fans?
Christen Dominique: It feels like I have a million friends. To my fans, you keep me going and inspire me to do great things!
TF: With so many beauty channels on YouTube, what would you say makes your unique?
CD: I’d have to say my personality is what makes my channel so unique. There is no one out there like you and when you embrace it people tend to relate to you more.
TF: Who do you see as your typical viewer, and how do you appeal to that person?
CD: My typical viewers are young adults who are in college or who have kids. They also have an interest in learning about makeup and just wants to be entertained.
TF: Do you have a favorite celebrity to draw looks from?
CD: I love Kylie Jenner’s makeup looks. They are always so clean and beautiful.
TF: Positivity is a big theme of your videos. Why is it important to you to focus on inner beauty as much as outer?
CD: Inner beauty is the key to any form of beauty. Start to tell yourself you are who you feel you are and your mind will start to believe it. Sometimes you have to fake it until you make it happen.
TF: You’ve posted some travel blogs on your channel. Where would you like to go next?
CD: I would love to go to Europe and explore the streets.
TF: What’s next for your channel? Any fun plans?
CD: I plan on doing more cinematic videos. As an example, I plan to do one for Halloween, so be sure to stay tuned.
