Jed Root has made a groundbreaking move by signing on new media make up sensation Michelle Phan (Yellow Power/Viet Power!!!) -
Here's a capsule of the original posting -
As part of our never-ending quest to push the limits of this business & explore new horizons, we are very pleased to welcome Michelle Phan!
The term “Internet Sensation” may be overused nowadays, but makeup artist Michelle Phan would certainly qualify to be called as such.
A few simple makeup tutorials filmed from the comfort of her home has lead to Michelle becoming one of the first and most successful online celebrities in the world of beauty.
Her videos have been viewed over 50 million times worldwide and she is the most highly subscribed “Make Up Guru” (over 300,000 subscribers!) on Youtube. Her creative looks and methods have been inspirational and easy to learn – over 8 million people have viewed on her video on how to recreate Lady Gaga’s look alone.
In 2009 Michelle even launched her own line of skincare products to great reviews – IQQU Beauty.
We are so happy to welcome Michelle to the agency and to blur the lines even further between all types of media.
