Michelle Phan – 25 year old, self-made millionaire. While working as a waitress in 2006, she began posting makeup tutorials on YouTube. Her makeup videos, which include titles like, “Romantic Valentine Look”, “Makeup for Glasses”, “Brighter Larger Looking Eyes”, and her most popular video, “Lady Gaga ‘Poker Face’ Tutorial”, were almost instant hits.
