Brotherly love: Marvyn gets makeup
In the following video you can see who Marvyn’s brother really is and if his make-up skills can keep up with Marvyn’s.
A make-up man in front of the camera: Why ?
At the time of his puberty, the YouTuber did not yet have a clear idea of his identity and sexuality. He was looking for advice on the internet and came across the YouTube channel of Gigi Gorgeous, then still Gergory Gorgeous, a man who put on make-up and that was available for everyone on the internet.
This encounter, these videos have been a great help to Marvyn. He slowly but surely learned to be himself and also started to put on make-up. Marvyn finally felt comfortable and wanted to be a role model for others as Gigi was for him then.
Coming-out, mobbing and swimming against the current
Meanwhile Marvyn has over 775 thousand subscribers on YouTube, 419 thousand on Instagram and via Twitter he reaches 94.5 thousand fans daily. The influencer is particularly popular with viewers because it swims against the current. Because the 26 year old is different. He’s colorful, flashy, shrill and just an eye-catcher.
But for him, that’s quite normal. He’s learned who he really is and what makes him happy. He reports on his experiences and deals with topics such as bullying, coming out or how it is unintentional to stand out in the crowd. Because the YouTuber knows how it all feels thanks to his experience.
