Amo los tutoriales de maquillaje de Michelle, es la mejor
love love love Aaliyah, Love michelle! :)
very nice !
Wow this is nice Michelle! So cool how makeup can change you so much, at the end, you did not look anything like you, not only did you look like her, but you reminded me of Raven Symone. :) You did a great job
did you really just do a makeup tutorial in black face? Normally, I'm a huge fan, but I think you've crossed a line here. This video is offensive and I'm not even black.
@ seriously: Uhh Aliyah WAS african-american. I haven't even watched the video, but michelle was only getting into character by darkening her skin. how can she come close to looking like aliyah if she didn't have darker skin? if anything someone would say she looked like jessica rabbit or something otherwise. anyway, this video didn't look like aliyah so much as the preview picture.
I don't think it's offensive and I am black.. I think it's a great tribute to Aaliyah! She did a nice job capturing her look :)
This video is in NO way offensive. If you are looking to be offended you should probably find more viable sources. "Black face"?? The only thing offensive is that someone would bring up that term. I hope @seriously is still in high school so she can have time to acquire the "socio-political" education he/she is in such dire need of.
haha she reminds me of snooki after her transformation. gotta love michelle and aaliyah though!
Oh stfu all of you, she did a really good job, it's nice easy to transform your look, even though she didnt fucking look 100 percent she still came close, quit being so fucking stubborn and watch the video, you should all be ashamed, and if you think she sucked, why dont you try to do a better video? here are your options, 1.) do something about it, or 2.) shut the FUCK UP
Me encanta Michell Phan
how is it offensive? I've seen plenty of makeup gurus do tutorials of people with very fair skin, is that offensive? NO. Great tutorial, I love transformation looks :D
nice michelle.. luv it.. ur so great. luv it soooo much
Michelle+Aaliyah=my dream come true!!
Terrible. This girl should stick to something else because she turned out looking NOTHING like Aaliyah. That's just my opinion.
@Carolyn, if you are jelly you should just accept your own insecurities. The fact that you project them so heavily on the internet is a glaring sign that you are a complete sociopath. Women like you are the reason liberal feminism has such a hard time taking root in American society.
seriously how is it offensive?. Great video btw
This is completely a mess. The contours are weird and that wig, looks terrible. You couldn't have even used Aaliyah's real singing voice for this video? You had to use a cover? Next time get a real makeup artist too.
@Stevie wth are you going off on you psycho? I stated my opinion on the tutorial and in my words it's terrible. She ended up doing a sloppy Chola tutorial instead of transforming into Aaliyah. Yeah, I'm sooo jelly of that. Her end result was unfortunate and it's not my fault that you're getting butthurt because someone didn't like it. Boo Hoo.
It's no offense in this video whatsoever. She does a really good job, but of course we can't forget she's oriental!! I'm white and I would never be able to use makeup so wonderfully as to even look as close to the singer as Michelle. Well done!!!
i l♥ve u..michelle phan..sad because i live in philippines and i cant enter on ur website..
This is an absolute mess. Im sorry. Its mildly offensive also because she passed away. It looks horrible. Why would they choose Michelle Phan to do this ?
This isn't offensive in anyway! She did a makeup transformation and did a wonderful job. Her doing a MAKEUP tribute would be like someone else doing a video montage tribute. And she used a cover because Aaliyah's music is still under copyright and youtube or another channel would have removed the music and put that nasty fill in music. I still can't get over the offensive part... it was a TRIBUTE. I swear people cry and complain just to start things...
The end result didn't look like Aaliyah at all. Everything about this vid is off point (e.g. contouring, wig, the eyes, cover song, etc.) next time a professionally trained/experienced mua would be greatly appreciated.
I love Michelle but you couldn't get a black person to do his makeup look? I'm sure there are just as great african american makeup artists. The darker makeup on her face looks ridiculous.
No offense but it doesn't look like Aaliyah at all. Sorry Michelle but maybe u should consult Promise how to do the make-up transformation though
i loved it and i think its stupid that some people think that this is racist.
i don't know much about michelle phan, but i don't think the idea of this is to look exactly like aaliyah. michelle is a make-up artist right ? so isn't she just trying to replicate aaliyah's make-up style ? i think it's more than obvious that if the point was to look like aaliyah she would just undergo extreme plastic surgery. and the skin color thing and wig are just ways to get into character. i see this as a celebration of aaliyah as a beauty icon. why so much hate people ?
This was terrible. You couldn't even see what she was doing the whole time and then she didn't look like her. Whatever Michelle, you suck.
