Safiya Nygaard is an American actress, writer, and comedian, who joined the multi-billion dollar video-sharing platform YouTube after she created her own channel in 2011. She’s well-known for her beauty and fashion-related video content on her self-titled YouTube channel. Before fame, she had worked as a video content producer for BuzzFeed from which she learned and harnessed her video editing skills. She became more popular after she began uploading her videos on her self-titled YouTube channel, which has amassed more than 9 million subscribers. Knowing that she’s not just a multi-talented artist but also someone who has definite beauty, it didn’t take long for her to establish a huge fan base in social media. Her uploads seem to focus more on niches strongly related to beauty, an extremely popular and relatable niche that draws more interest to younger viewers.
Though she had uploaded a bunch of unique videos related to makeup and beauty product reviews during the early years of her channel, it wasn’t long until she also progressed to other niches including fashion, food adventures, travel, updates about her dating life, challenge videos, and many more. Her consistency in creating witty but informational video content has always remained intact even before she started YouTube, which brought her success much faster than other new vloggers on YouTube.
