Christen has always been interested in make-up and fashion. She spent a significant part of her childhood watching fashion shows and make-up tutorials. Without any professional training, she acquired knowledge of makeup and started working on her skills. She finally decided to showcase her skills, and in February 2009, she created her self-titled YouTube channel (Christen Dominique).
Initially, she was hesitant about creating a channel as she was worried about her viewers’ reactions. But her channel became famous as soon as it was created, for her make-up methods were easy and required no special skills. Her first video was titled ‘How to create fuller lips.’ It was a tutorial on using lip liner and lipstick in order to make the lips appear plump.
As she improved her skills, her videos got better in terms of quality and information. She did a three-part video in which she reviewed a proactive acne solution. She actually used the product on herself to cure her acne. Next, she started posting a series of skincare routines which also included skincare routines for different seasons.
Christen then took her make-up skills to the next level when she started posting videos that taught her viewers a few make-up tricks to look like movie stars. She posted tutorials to look like Kylie Jenner, Ariana Grande, and Katy Perry among others. She became famous in India when she posted a make-up tutorial that was inspired by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s look at the Cannes Film Festival.
Among all her video series, the most popular series was titled ‘Drugstore Makeup Tutorial’. In addition to that, she has done numerous make-up tutorials using minimal make-up products. She then posted several videos such as ‘Vampire Halloween Makeup Tutorial,’ ‘Monster High Frankie Stein Makeup Tutorial,’ and ‘Joker Suicide Squad Makeup Tutorial.’
Her most popular collaboration happened when she joined hands with Patrick Simondac, one of the most renowned make-up artists. Apart from him, she has collaborated with YouTubers like Sylvia Gani, Chloe Morello, Chrisspy, Sarahi, and Jake Warden. Christen's ‘makeup do’s and don’ts’ series was appreciated by those who were looking for a professional make-up look. In the series, she shared ways to avoid a cakey foundation and also shared a trick to avoid lipstick from getting smudged.
When she started reviewing make-up products, many high-end brands including Huda Beauty, Fenty Beauty, Too Faced, Bobbi Brown, and MAC approached her to review their products. She has also reviewed Patrick Simondac’s range of cosmetics which he launched in collaboration with MAC.
In September 2012, Christen launched her second channel named THE DOMINIQUE FAMILY. The channel is mostly focused on family-friendly vlogs that entertain over 275k subscribers. However, Christina has not posted any new content on the channel since July 2020. Besides Youtube, she has also gained considerable popularity on TikTok and Instagram with her immensely engaging makeup and lifestyle content.
Christen has graced many events with her presence, including prominent events like Cannes Film Festival and the 3rd Annual Hollywood Beauty Awards. Her channel has been honored by YouTube by presenting her with silver and golden buttons. She also made an appearance on the popular American talk show, ‘The Real,’ in 2015. The following year, she was featured on the shopping series, ‘Style Code Live.’ In April 2017, Christen secured the ninth position on the list of ‘Top Influencers in Social Media’ which was issued by Forbes magazine. In 2018, Christen launched her cosmetics brand under the name, ‘Dominique.’ The first product that she launched was an eyeshadow palette. She even announced a giveaway along with her first product.
She then had a verbal brawl with her fellow YouTuber, Laura Lee. They both exchanged nasty comments on Instagram and Snapchat. Laura Lee accused her of copying her videos and told her that she deserves no appreciation.
Christen Dominique was born on February 5, 1987, in Texas, USA. She is of mixed origin. After marrying Cesar Irias, she moved to Los Angeles. Most of her family members live in Houston. She has 2 half-sisters. A year after her wedding, Christen became a proud mother of a baby boy. Christen and Cesar named their son, Jayden.
According to Christen, she was initially insecure about her looks due to her dark circles. Growing up, she wasn’t allowed to use makeup by her parents. However, one fine day, she applied her mother’s concealer and went to school. Feeling confident and motivated, Christine was now able to connect with others and was no more held back by her fears and insecurities. This is what later inspired her to launch her own cosmetics brand.
While she is now a famous makeup artist, Christine actually wanted to become a dancing singer when she was younger. She idolized Selena Gomez and would often “perform” during family get-togethers.
