Who is Melissa Alatorre?
Melissa Alatorre is an American beauty vlogger who is active on YouTube, Instagram and other social platforms. She was born on 22nd April 1989 in San Diego, California. She is known for posting makeup-related and fashion videos on her YouTube channel.
Education and early career of Melissa Alatorre
Melissa grew up in a traditional Mexican family alongside her sister. From a young age, she was expected to get good grades at school, go to a university and find a job with a high salary. She eventually ended up at San Diego University, where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree. She chose her major to be Journalism and Media Studies, and her minor was in Psychology. Her family didn’t really accept her passion for makeup as a valid, future job, more likely as a hobby. Melissa knew what she wanted, so in 2012 she packed her bags and moved to Los Angeles.
After moving, she found a job as a production assistant for a division of the NBC network because it felt like a way to go after studying journalism. Although she managed to earn some money, Melissa wasn’t happy about her job and used to spend time watching makeup artists on stage, thinking that was what she wanted to do. She stayed there for a year and a half before she finally decided to quit. She decided that the best way to improve her makeup skills was finding a job at a makeup store. She worked for Bobby Brown, Perico and others and improved her skills day by day. Her dream at the time was to get a job at NARS, and although she got denied at first, she got the job on a second try.
Melissa Alatorre's YouTube channel
Melissa created her YouTube channel in 2015 while still working at NARS, which was a big help. She didn’t have the money to purchase expensive makeup, so she would ask the manager to borrow some products for a tutorial. The manager agreed, and this became Melissa’s daily routine. She was filming multiple makeup tutorials a week, and her fanbase started growing. Her makeup tutorials were usually based on one key product that she would introduce to her audience and create a makeup look with it. This allowed her to teach her fans something new and review the product at the same time.
Melissa has long dark hair, which she likes to style in every possible way. She created a series just for hair content, where she would try different washing techniques, new products and various tricks. Since a lot of people still believe that washing their hair every day is healthy, Melissa filmed her journey of not washing hers for four days and explained the benefits. She also loves trying out new makeup products, so she filmed a lot of reviews and first impressions. Since working at NARS, she learned a lot about makeup brands and never hesitated to show those to her audience.
Beautiful figure that Melissa has didn’t appear from nowhere. She works hard and exercises every day to tone her curves and gain strength. Since workout videos became very popular in the last few years, she dedicated the entire series just to workout videos. She’s aware that most people prefer to work out at home, so she accommodated it. In some videos, she showed what equipment she owns and where did she buy it. In the following videos, she continues showing different types of workouts and cardio and explains which exercises to do in order to get a figure similar to hers.
