Between her unmistakable Massachusetts accent and her next-level looks, TikTok-famous makeup artist Mikayla Nogueira has earned 10.4 million followers in just 2 years. In today’s episode, Mikayla reflects on her epic metamorphosis, from apprenticing as a special FX makeup artist at her father’s haunted house, to her very first viral TikTok video where, scarred from bullies, she hid her iconic accent before learning to embrace her true self.
