Nikkie Tutorials spills the tea on lip fillers, working with Kim Kardashian and YouTube life lessons

"Nobody wakes up with cheekbones and lips out of nowhere."

(Cosmopolitan) - If you've ever watched a video by Nikkie Tutorials - with over ten million subscribers I'm pretty sure you have - you'll know that not only is Nikkie INSANELY talented when it comes to applying makeup, but she's also refreshingly open and honest.

At just 24 years old Nikkie has built an entire empire from her YouTube tutorials. She has launched her own line of makeup products with brands like Too Faced and Ofra Cosmetics and has such a dedicated following that celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Drew Barrymore have both made guest appearances on her channel.

We caught up with Nikkie to spill the tea on everything from working with Kim K, to what 'work' she's had done and the biggest challenge of having ten million people watching your every move.

On working with Kim Kardashian...

"She is so, so sweet, very professional but so warm. She taught me the number one rule I live by now, which is that when someone writes a hate comment, they spend about two seconds of their emotion on it. Don’t let someone’s two second emotion ruin your entire day. I live by that now and life’s been great."

The biggest misconception about her...

"In Holland where I live, a lot of people - especially older people, or men - have this stigma where they hear ‘beauty guru’, or ‘makeup YouTuber’ and assume I'm not intelligent. They just think I'm a ' simple old makeup girl', but as soon as they get to know me they realise that there's so much more, I have built an entire brand and empire from this."

Why she 'freaking' loves lip fillers...

"Being open about fillers and botox is a very tough decision to make, because either way, people will criticise you for it. If you are open about what you've had done, people will criticise you for doing it, but if you're not open, people will come for you for not speaking the truth.

"I think it’s so important in this day and age to be open about it, because nobody wakes up with cheekbones and lips out of nowhere. I think it’s way easier to just be honest about it. I do want people to realise that it’s your face, it’s your life, you are in control. Some people will love a lot of lip filler, some people will hate it and that’s just how life works.

"For me personally it has been one of the greatest decisions of my life because it has made me feel so strong, powerful and beautiful. But I do think now with Kylie Jenner dissolving her lip fillers, it’s interesting to see what the teens will do now, but for me I freaking love lip fillers and don’t regret it one bit."

How she achieves the perfect makeup selfie...

"I feel like I could write an entire book about taking the perfect selfie. There’s just so much that goes into it: Lighting, angles, Face Tune, there’s a lot of stuff that you can do to improve your image.

"I think the one thing that has helped me the most by far is lighting and angles. Know your angles, know what works for your face, get that good lighting and really show off your makeup skills."

The toughest thing about being on YouTube...

"The hardest lesson that I had to come to terms with is that you can’t please everybody. I’m such a people pleaser, I just want everyone to be happy and the moment I realised that’s never going to happen, it hurt.

"I'll put so much love, effort and time into a video and then people will say 'I love your videos but this one didn’t really cut it for me', that hurts. But you’ve got to realise that everyone has an opinion and preference, you can’t please them all."

The makeup hack she swears by...

"A lot of people just think of setting spray as the last step in your makeup routine, but it’s so good to start with it, to spray it in-between and to end with it, to really help your makeup last. I use so much Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray that I'm pretty sure it's my blood type by now."

On starting her own makeup line...

"I would love to but for now, no because of the responsibility and the pressure behind it. That’s why I love collaborating with my favourite brands because I get to create products I want, but I don’t have everything else that comes with it."

The one thing that helped her confidence...

"What helped me tremendously is that I direct and create all my own videos, so I have to edit them and editing them showed me how I act, what I look like, how I react to stuff. It puts it in another perspective and that really taught me so much about myself."
