Who is dope2111?

Dope2111 is a Nepalese-American beauty YouTuber who is also active on Instagram and other social platforms. Her real name is Promise Tamang Phan, and she was born on 30th July 1989, in Kathmandu. Promise and her three sisters have American nationality but belong to Asian ethnicity. She was born Prathigya, but since she moved to America and people had problems pronouncing her name, she changed it to Promise. Her having the same last name as another beauty vlogger, Michelle Phan, is no coincidence: Promise became her sister-in-law after marrying her current husband, Steve Phan.

Promise has been interested in makeup since a young age and has been watching a lot of makeup-related videos, including tutorials. She managed to teach herself enough skills that she wanted to share her knowledge and help other younger girls discover makeup secrets. With this goal, she created her YouTube channel, called dope2111, in 2010.

Dope2111 as a Disney princess

Since Promise was good at makeup but also loved to dress as Disney princesses or movie characters, her channel included both. Her most popular series is Princess Makeup Tutorials. In this series, Promise not only does a makeup tutorial on said characters but completely transforms herself in them, including wigs, clothes and accessories. Her makeup tutorial on Elsa from Frozen has over 80 million views.

Her makeup skills didn’t end at impersonating fairytale characters. In her other, no less popular series, Promise transforms herself into a celebrities. And again, it’s not only the same eyeshadow on the same lip colour. She improved her skills regarding contouring so much that she was able to completely change her bone structure and facial features. This made it possible for her to look like Michael Jackson, Beyonce or Zayn Malik from the band One Direction. As expected, fans loved to watch her makeup transformations, and her fame skyrocketed.

Since Promise enjoyed communicating with her audience and wanted to connect with them more, she created her second YouTube channel in 2012. It serves as a more personal channel, where she doesn’t primarily focus on makeup but on Q&A’s, funny challenges and content related to her family life and Nepali roots.

Over the following years, when Promise was, besides her influencer career, focused on her family life, her content slightly changed. She is still making makeup-related YouTube videos but also uploads stories from her personal life. One of the newest topics is her having a son born in 2022.
