Luxie Beauty

The Power of Makeup: Amazing Beauty Transformations

Shalom Nchom

Earlier this week, images of Shalom Nchom went viral. She’s a stunning 20-year old makeup artist who is also a burn survivor.

Her motto – “you should love yourself either way: makeup or no makeup.” – is something we truly believe in at Pampadour. We were deeply inspired by Shalom and her story.
