Who is Christen Dominique?

Christen Dominique is an American beauty YouTuber who is also active on Instagram and other social platforms. She was born on 5th February 1987 in Texas. She owes her unique beauty to her Arabic, Mexican and Guyanese-Portuguese roots, which she got from her mother's, grandmother's and father's sides. Although she has two half-sisters, her mother raised her as an only child. She didn't know much about her father since she was 15 years old.

While still in school, Christen was attending dance classes as well as singing courses. She saw Selena Gomez as her idol and aspired to be a Spanish singer just like her. But at the end of high school, she discovered her abilities and interest in makeup. She began to go out wearing a full face of makeup, and soon she was helping her friends with beauty tips and tricks.

Christen was working as a freelance makeup artist, and soon after, in 2009, she created her YouTube channel. Her first video was a makeup tutorial on how to create fuller-looking lips using drugstore makeup. After that, her channel also included makeup reviews, do's and dont's, dyi's and fashion tips. In 2012 she appeared on Instagram and started to post short video cuts from her YouTube videos, as well as fashion tips and shards of her personal life.

As a person with a background of different nationalities, she didn't hide the fact but embraced it. Her most popular makeup series on YouTube is called Country vs Country. In these series, she makes makeup looks depicting different habits of various countries. Usually, the right side of her face shows typical American makeup, and her left side changes depending on the country. Besides that, Christen is great at recreating famous people's makeup, such as Ariana Grande or Katy Perry.

Besides her makeup interest, Christen takes good care of her health and body. She has a beautiful figure which hasn't changed even after giving birth to her son. Since motherhood, she shows her viewers that being fit and pursuing your passion is possible even as a mother. She often shares her experiences while raising a child and explains how she makes time for her own hobbies. Christen also decided to share her experience with breast implant surgery. She talked about the procedure itself but also about post-operation problems that came afterwards. She eventually decided to remove her implants, as it was not worth the trouble.
