Michelle Phan's career began with a single, grainy YouTube video shot from her family living room in Tampa Bay, Florida. And now, for the past decade, she has worked tirelessly to build a multimillion-dollar beauty and lifestyle empire. The dynasty includes a monthly subscription beauty service, ipsy, reportedly valued at more than $500 million. There’s also a makeup line, EM Cosmetics, set to relaunch this year after Phan bought it back from L’Oréal in 2016. The root of it all is a multichannel beauty and lifestyle network on YouTube featuring more than 200 beauty influencers. She’s also written a book, has more than 1.1 billion lifetime views on her YouTube channel and was the first official video makeup artist for beauty giant Lancôme.
