Michelle Phan and projects with Capraro
In case you’re wondering who Michelle Phan is and how she became a celebrity, here is her short story. Michelle comes from a poor Vietnamese family, and had to work as a waitress while attending the Ringling College of Art and Design in Florida.
Simultaneously, Phan uploaded videos of her make-up on Xanga, and drew sketches under the name of Rice Bunny. Xanga’s lack of popularity forced her to reach a larger audience after her videos turned out to be rather popular and garnered a lot of views, so she decided to create a YouTube channel, on which Phan has almost nine million subscribers, becoming the second most subscribed YouTube channel owned by a female.
Michelle’s Lady Gaga Bad Romance and Lady Gaga Poker Face make-up tutorial clips attracted a lot of attention on her channel, and accumulated millions of views. Following the success of those videos, Michelle co-founded My Glam, a subscription service that helped her making tons of money thanks to its monetization policy. Quickly, the worldwide cosmetics brands approached Phan to advertise their make-up products, and that made her a rich woman.
