- Paloma Lopez, who grew up with no arms or legs, has wowed thousands with her ability to apply beautiful make-up
- Paloma has thousands of followers who are all avid watchers of her make-up tutorial videos
- At a very young age, Paloma lost all her limbs due to an illness
Paloma is one 20-year old who has made it her mission in life to prove no one and nothing can hold the person back who really wants to succeed. As a child she lost both her arms and legs to a merciless illness.
While losing all your limbs can result in a feeling of complete hopelessness, Paloma was determined to still do the thing that she loved doing - make-up. Not only did she teach herself the very complex skill, she also mastered it.
The Argentinian woman applies flaw-less makeup on herself using only her stumps and she also creates make-up tutorials for her 7 000 followers, who are undoubtedly inspired by her deep-rooted passion.
"Growing up, not having limbs affected me, but now I am lucky. I study, I exercise, I swim, I surf, I put on my make-up and I am making my tutorials, which generate a big network," Paloma said in a Ruptly article.
