This Beauty Vlogger Is Doing Makeup Tutorials To Trap Music & We're So Here For It

Human Interest

Black girls got the juice! 2017 has been a full-on year of consistent revealing of the magic that we hold within. Anything we touch turns to gold because of our creativity and innate ingenuity.


Take, for instance, the influx of beauty gurus that have created their empires with YouTube. Beautiful WOC beauty vloggers such as @Alissa.Ashley, Chinutay, Jackie Aina, and many more, have taken the initiative to provide a platform for women to learn beauty tips and tricks to satisfy our inner beauty guru. Though all unique in their own light, the repetition of videos can become a bit overwhelming for someone who wants a fast and entertaining beauty vlog. In comes Chelsie Worthy.

Chelsie Worthy (@wvrthy) has been going viral with her "Traptorial" videos - makeup tutorials that she utilizes trap music in her execution. The result are videos that are insanely entertaining and her beat always ends up on point. Just last night, a traptorial she dropped on Twitter is racking up views at 400K and counting!

The truth is in the pudding. For Chelsie's videos, the reason for virality is not cryptic at all. The YouTube community is over-saturated. With the internet, there is a low-bar entry for virtually anything: making music, vlogging, writing, and being a Twitter critic. So it comes to no surprise that creative flair and originality is the key to truly making a mark. People love the differentiation that Chelsie brings with her videos.

Pretty girls love trap music. (Because, everyone needs a beat, whether we're talking our make-up or the music we get ready to.)

Taking trendy trap songs like "Ric Flair Drip" by Offset and Metroboomin', Chelsie gives a quick tutorial using humorous editing skills and dance moves to guide us through a beauty routine that takes less than a two-minute song to perfect. What's even more impressive is that Chelsie does all the editing in her videos herself!

In a recent interview with POPSUGAR Beauty, the influencer shared the meaning behind her creative direction in her vids:

"The beauty industry doesn't want creators who have their own minds, creative ideas, or edge. I wanted to show girls that you don't have to conform to a standard of beauty when you can easily create your own. You can be unapologetically you and still considered beautiful. That doesn't take away from our beauty or mean we don't deserve recognition. That's why I created traptorials, to represent girls like me who are talented but don't fit the status quo."

It's truly a work of art to get your highlighter on point whilst still catering to that inner-G that lives inside of us all.

I’m pretty sure that we’ve all heard the saying, “opinions are like buttholes” (yeah, I cleaned that up a bit) and everyone has one. Well, when it comes to the topic of advice, if we’re gonna be real about it, a lot of times all it is, is an opinion too. So, does this mean that we’re never supposed to ask for advice or take any when it’s offered? I mean, I get that since I’m a marriage life coach, it comes off as completely on-brand that I would say that receiving advice can actually be quite beneficial.

Vivica A. Fox kicked off the new year just right with a solo vacation. The veteran actress visited The Real to dish on her booked and busy career, but during the conversation, she also revealed that she “took a 10-day vacation all by myself.” After spending Thanksgiving with her family in Indianapolis and Christmas with her godchildren, the Two Can Play That Game star jetted off to somewhere tropical for some me-time.

On a Tuesday evening, I am waiting for an interview that I know will be full of gems and will surely change a Black woman’s life. But I’m also full of nerves and anxiety. Friends and family members all around are testing positive and it's like Omarion took his hit song, "Touch" to a new level. My anxiety is on 1,000. Then, E! News host Francesca Amiker joins the Zoom call. Full of joy and light, I can’t lie, she brightened my day as soon as she turned on her camera, flashed that bright smile, and greeted me the only way a Southern belle would.
