Marimar Quiroa, the 23-year-old beauty vlogger from California, is taking the internet by storm with her tutorial videos. A vlogger is a video blogger.
Born with cystic hygroma, a rare congenital condition where fluid-filled sacs grow around face or neck. Quiroa is here to shatter the preconceived notions about beauty and give people lesson on “self-love”.
Her facial tumour affects her ability to speak, but she has never been bogged down by it. It also causes her problems breathing and eating. "It affects me in several ways." she explains. "I cannot speak, I breathe through a hole in my throat, I eat through a tube in my stomach and the hearing in my right ear is diminished." Marimar was so self-conscious about her appearance that she hid her face from people when she ventured outside her home in California. It's a far cry from a beauty blogger with a huge following on Youtube.
She runs “MakeupArtistGorda66”, a YouTube channel, to inspire and support people who are disabled, including those with hearing difficulties. She uses Sign language to communicate in her videos.
“To me, beauty means to accept yourself for who you are and to ignore what other people tell you. You show your beauty how it is, it doesn’t matter if you have a different looking face, accept yourself how you are,” she says in a video by Barcroft TV.
“When I was younger I would talk to myself in the mirror. I would tell myself I was beautiful. I would encourage myself and list all the things that were good about me and it built my confidence through the years,” Quiroa, who communicates using sign language in her videos, says. Her confidence has won her fans from across the world and more than three million people subscribe to her channel on YouTube and she has 96,000 followers on Instagram.
There are other like Quiroa who have taken the world of beauty vlogging by the storm.
