On June 28th next month, 21 year-old Promise Tamang will complete two years of being a Beauty guru on YouTube. It didn’t take long for this Patan born YouTuber to build her popularity. For me, it was her Avatar girl video that captured my interest and subsequently led me to find out who she is. The Avatar video currently has view’s that exceed 1 million but her most viewed is her make-up transformation to Angelina Jolie. Now do we even have to wonder why?
It only takes two words ‘Hey Guys’ from Promise in her video’s for us to see the enchantress that she is. For some she’s beautiful, she’s pretty; she’s dangerously seductive. She is the femme fatale that make’s many guy’s jaws drop. With an army of 216,000+ Subscribers Promise is probably the most subscribed and viewed Nepalese YouTuber. The self-taught make up guru made news online with her quick marriage to Michelle Phan’s (Popular YouTube Guru) brother, Steve. Though many have raised questions in regards to their marriage, Promise is happy with her decision. When she’s not uploading incredibly super videos on YouTube she can actively be found on Facebook, another portal which she has utilized with more than 48,000 supporters. Her link shares are often entertaining, it ranges from sharing of animal videos and picture uploads of her dog Nimbus to her new fascination with Illuminati. Not to forget, it’s wonderful to see someone so far away from her motherland yet remembering Nepal through photo’s that she frequently shares. She tells me there’s nothing better than eating Momo and Chow-mein from a bhatti and a ‘pero pero chanachatpatey’, now I cannot quite imagine her in a slightly dark and smelly bhatti but there you have it. When asked where her favourite hang-out place in Nepal is, Boomerang Restaurant in Pokhara top’s her list. It’s the views of Fewa Tal that appeals to our Miss Tamang. It’s probably also because she lives’ in Pokhara.
I am sorry for making so many of you wait for such a long time but here it is. The femme fatale in her own words; Ek Chin with Promise Tamang.
We know you; Promise Tamang as a high-flying YouTube Make-up guru but when you’re not busy making men’s jaw drop what do you actually do for a living?Right now YouTube is my Job .After you have a certain amount of Subscribers and Viewers on YouTube. You get paid pretty well.
Initially, did you think you would be appreciated by the mass so much?No way! It’s still a mystery to me why people liked my Avatar make-up so much.
Not long after your popularity on YouTube you quickly got married to Steven Phan, how has married life treated both of you so far?Yes. He saw my Avatar picture and was really impressed. Then we became friends and ended up being a couple 🙂 Married life is wonderful. Can’t imagine a better guy to spend my life with.
When together with Michelle Phan, how do you normally spend your time?We talk about life, family and future plans most of the time .She specially enjoys hearing Ghost stories of Nepal.
Now, I’m sure you are aware of the social stigma regarding inter-racial marriage in the Nepalese society. So what was the reaction from your family when they came to know of your marriage plans with someone who is of Vietnamese-American descent? My parents are super chill. So that wasn’t a problem. They just wanted me to be happy and marry the man I truly love.
Most people came to know of you from your Avatar Make-up tutorial which was absolutely brilliant. I only went to watch the movie after seeing you. What is your best make-up transformation till date?As of now, my best make-up transformation is Angelina Jolie.
Do you have any plans to make a Nepali-oriented video, maybe do a transformation video of Rajesh Hamal?Right now I feel like I don’t have a huge Nepalese fan base so I will have to wait until the time is right.
Is there anything in particular that you want to do during your next visit to Nepal? I’m planning to spend time with family and friends and most importantly just enjoy the peace and calmness.
What’s next for Promise Tamang Phan? Next video will probably be A Graduation Make-up look with Michelle.
Lastly, is there anything that you would like to say to all of your Nepali supporters? I want to Thank all my Nepali Brothers and Sisters for watching my videos and taking your precious time to write me such sweet encouraging messages. I really appreciate your love and will always try to keep you guys entertained with what I do best.
In your tutorials you seem to have your eyebrows done beforehand; what’s the process you go through to give it the sleek outlook?I usually have my eyebrows done before hand because my eyebrows are pretty thin. I keep it this way so I can change my Eyebrow shapes easily according to the Celebrity I am planning to transform into. I don’t want to give my viewers the wrong idea of keeping their eyebrows too thin. To achieve the perfect brows I apply a concealer around my brows after filling in my brows with an Eyebrow Pencil!
Promise, I have acne problem that leaves me with a lot of redness in my face and it is normally very dry. What do you suggest?Everyone has acne because of different reasons .I get acne when my face gets too oily. My husband gets them when he is super stressed out. Drinking lots of water and avoiding fried foods does the trick for almost everyone .Since I had kidney stones I’ve been drinking 6 bottles of water a Day and I can’t believe how clear my skin looks .Also You can always try the Easy Home remedies creating pastes using Egg Yolks, aloe vera, honey, Tumeric Powder, basil etc.
How much make-up is too much? I would say it depends. In the day time girls should try to go for more natural lighter Make-up looks. And at night time go for contour and add more colours to your face!
Would you ever go under the knife to perfect yourself? Great Question! As tempting as it is to perfect all my imperfections, I am such a wuss. I still close my eyes and squeeze someone’s hand when I get my shots haha
Have you ever put make-up on your husband?
My craziest night-out was: Clubbing for the first and the last time. My friend had to say we were lesbians to keep the drunk guys away.
The Nepali dude with the finest body is: Sexy Shishi or Bhuwan K.C, It’s a tie
When I’m not spending time with Nimbus I: am cooking and spending time with my HUBBY
If the world ends in 2012 then I will: try out every restaurants in my city
