While her parents dreamed she would someday become a doctor, Deepica Mutyala set out to conquer the world – the beauty world – instead. Mutyala is a self-made on-air beauty expert and vlogger whose videos have racked up over 10 million views.
After perusing and landing a career in the cosmetic industry, she quit her day job to make creative content full-time. In 2015, she launched a YouTube channel in hopes of making beauty more approachable and inclusive of all women. Given her success, you would never guess she starting filming with a cell phone in her apartment. That’s determination. That’s Glam.
