The best beauty bloggers know all the tips and tricks to nail just about any look. They become iconic faces that people go to for expert advice, but the public doesn't see what they're dealing with off-camera. Despite being a tetraplegic and losing all the feeling in her hands, Jordan Bone's makeup tutorials are some of the best out there. She recently made a video showing a few of her daily struggles, proving that, although she's got plenty of challenges, she's a force to be reckoned with when she's got a makeup brush in her hand.
After receiving negative comments on her videos, Bone filmed "My Beautiful Struggle," a video that explains exactly what she goes through to do her makeup. Although she applies flawless cat eye liner and can do day to night makeup like a total pro, the YouTuber explains in her video that she has been a tetraplegic for decade. Because she has no feeling in her hands and cannot open or close them, she was forced to find new ways to do her makeup.
She may open mascara with her mouth and work hard to adjust her brushes in her hands, but her makeup is absolutely gorgeous. With her positive attitude and knack for blending, this woman is going far on YouTube and beyond.
What sets Bone aside from other beauty vloggers is how varied her videos are. One day she's giving you an elegant nighttime look and the next she's showing you how to achieve the perfect daytime glow. She's done videos on everything from hair extensions to eyeshadow palettes, and it's clear to see that nothing is holding her back one bit.
Bustle has reached out to Bone for comment and will update this article if she responds.
