4. She is a US Army Veteran

Balancing both her newly found passion and serving the country at the same time is no easy feat — and it is definitely something that is worth admiring.

3. Rise to Social Media Fame

Aina did not have a life of glitz and glamour on her mind when she created her YouTube channel. At first, Aina started creating content as a way of coping with her unhappy marriage back then. In 2006, she uploaded her first video which was titled “Electric Purple Smokey Eye” and eventually, her attention-grabbing content had its much-deserved attention and Aina continues to rack up her social media numbers. She currently has 3.57 million subscribers on YouTube, 1.8 million followers on Instagram, and 714.8k followers on Twitter.

1. She is an Advocate for Social Issue Awareness

While Aina is beloved for many reasons, her advocacy for diversity in the makeup industry ranks as one of the best. She has called out the lack of darker shades available in the market and has formed lasting relationships with cosmetic companies that have acknowledged her criticism in order to fix the situation. Aina truly makes good use of her massive online platform and fans are definitely thankful for it.
