Video makeup how-to

Michelle was a college student and began doing makeup videos in 2007 to supplement her blog. She doesn't have any formal training in makeup, but her videos are fantastic -- great music, clear instructions and beautiful results.

Before she knew it, her YouTube videos had picked up steam -- big time. Currently, she has over a million subscribers to her YouTube Channel and her videos have been viewed over 280 million times.

Three years ago, she was turned down for a job at the Lancome counter at a department store. And then, early this year, she was signed by Lancome as their video makeup star.

Let's take a look at her latest video for an elegant holiday look. This video she did for Teen Vogue (she's in the December/January issue).
