Who is Miss Darcei?

Miss Darcie is a Canadian beauty vlogger who is active on YouTube, Instagram and other social platforms. Her real name is Darcie Amanda, and she was born on 12th November 1991 in Ontario, Canada. She is known for posting makeup-related videos on her YouTube channel.

Background and early career of Miss Darcei

Darcie considers herself black, but she revealed that her father is half-black and half-Indian, and her mother is half-black and half-Dutch. After high school, she usually worked in customer service and stores to earn money. After that, she started working at Sephora to improve her makeup skills. She created her YouTube channel in 2010.

Her first YouTube videos involved basic makeup tutorials and reviews. She came through different stages of content, depending on what was trendy at the time. She used to film a lot of videos on care for naturally curly hair. She learned how to work with her hair by herself and decided to teach other people her tricks. She is interested in Korean culture because she used to learn about it since high school. She listened to K-Pop and watched K-Dramas because she enjoyed it, and people started to ask her questions.

Black Girl Tries - Miss Darcei

Her most popular series on YouTube was created because of her interest in Korean culture. She loved K-Pop models and their makeup but realized that their beauty routines weren’t made for black women. She was interested in seeing how it would look on her, and that’s how the series, Black Girl Tries, came to life. In this series, Darcie picks one beauty influencer, celebrity or makeup trend and tries to recreate it on herself. She tried Korean makeup, Goth makeup and much more. Her most popular video is Black Girl Tries Kylie Jenner Makeup, with over 12 million views.

Darci started off as a shy girl who did YouTube videos for fun and evolved into a confident young woman who doesn’t fear speaking her mind. She supports black women to try whatever they like and not let anyone push them to follow some stupid beauty standards. To make her videos amusing and fun, she tries different TikTok trends as well. She is lucky to have not-sensitive skin, which allows her to try some questionable makeup hacks without worrying about breaking out.

Miss Darcei on social media 

In addition to YouTube, Miss Darcei has a significant presence on other social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter. She often shares updates, behind-the-scenes content, and interacts with her followers across these platforms. She creates a wide range of content related to beauty and fashion. She often shares her expertise in makeup application techniques, product recommendations, and skincare routines. She also uploads vlogs, challenges, and lifestyle videos, offering insights into her personal life and experiences.  

Miss Darcei’s TikTok account blew up in 2022, when she came across a “colour-changing” foundation. As a woman with a darker skin tone, she was sceptical about the product but determined to give it an honest review. Her first interaction with the product ended up being a total fiasco, as it turned white to slightly yellow on her skin. Since her viewers gave her several suggestions on how to use the foundation properly, Miss Darcei made a few more videos on the product, trying out different application techniques. Unfortunately, every try ended up in the same scenario: Miss Darcei laughing at the product being totally fake and unusable on darker skin. On the bright side, these videos attracted many fans, collecting Darcei over 10 million views on each.

Darci recently got the chance to collaborate with a beauty brand and launch her own product. She was approached by SheGlam and, in 2022, launched her own makeup kit.
