TikTok’s debut podcast For You is back with episode four, featuring viral makeup artist, Mikayla Nogueira. Hosted by creator Brittany Broski (you know, Kombucha Girl), For You dives into all things TikTok with the platform’s biggest stars. Every week Broski sits down with a different influential creator (think: Frankie Jonas and Boman Martinez-Reid) who has turned the platform into a global community and cultural phenomenon.
For Noguerira, a self-proclaimed “Masshole,” her TikTok fame came literally overnight. She opened the account once the pandemic hit for her mother—a schoolteacher—as a way to help her reach students virtually. Yet, what started as a feed documenting life on her family’s Massachusetts farm, quickly turned into a personal makeup account after she posted a Catfish Challenge video that went gangbusters. From then on, Nogueria’s account grew from zero to 4 million followers within a year and she is the most recent recipient of the American Influencer Awards’ Emerging Makeup Artist of the Year 2020.
Covering everything from her famous concealer hack for cystic acne to revealing her accent to her community of fans, Nogueria opens up about it all in this must-listen episode. Check out a snippet of Broski and Nogueira’s conversation below and tune into new episodes every Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. PST/8:30 p.m. EST on TikTok LIVE and Thursday mornings on Apple, Spotify, Google and all major podcast players.
