The Makeup Artist and Beauty Content Creator Shares Exclusive Details about Finding Love, Her Upcoming Nuptials and the Beauty Looks She’s Planning for Her Big Day
The Fall Issue Also Features a Special Financial Wellness Section Packed with Insights and Advice from Expert Contributors
NEW YORK, NY, July 26, 2022 — The Knot—an authority in wedding planning, advice and products — today reveals the Fall 2022 issue of The Knot Magazine, featuring makeup artist and beauty content creator Nikkie de Jager, also known as NikkieTutorials, as the cover star. In the Fall issue, the YouTube beauty sensation shares details on her relationship with fiance Dylan, including their proposal story and upcoming wedding plans, plus tips for to-be-weds on hiring a makeup artist for the big day. The issue also includes financial advice from industry experts to aid couples in wedding planning – from how to navigate pre-marriage financial conversations to the ins and outs of budget prioritization.
A native of the Netherlands, Nikkie de Jager rose to fame in 2015 after her makeup tutorials on YouTube gained traction and quickly became a full-time career. She serves 13.9 million YouTube subscribers, 16+ million Instagram followers and 5+ million TikTok followers today. As a public figure, Nikkie has a track record of overcoming adversity. In 2020, she came out as a trans woman in a video titled “I’m Coming Out,” after someone blackmailed her and threatened to expose her publicly. Despite the initial fear of sharing such personal information with the world, Nikkie drew on Dylan’s love and support which she candidly describes in the article.
“When I had to click publish on my coming-out video, it was a very scary moment, because you don’t know what the future will bring. [Dylan] took my hand and looked me in the eyes and said, ‘You’re going to publish this. We’re going to be fine. You got this. Whatever happens, happens, but know that we have each other and it’ll be just fine,’’’ Nikkie shared with The Knot. “When he said that I was like, ‘This man is never leaving me, and I’m never leaving this man.’ I thought, ‘That’s my person. He is mine until the end of time.’”
In the cover story, Nikkie shares more about overcoming obstacles, why celebrating love is so important to her and how she spreads positivity and inspiration through her voice and platform. She also gives readers a sneak peek of her beauty look for the big day: “There will be something colorful, but I’m also all about the glam. So think of rhinestones across the face. But I also want to be careful, because these pictures will live on until the end of time—and that makeup has got to be perfect. So, better to keep it classy,” Nikkie said.
“We are honored to have NikkieTutorials as our cover star for the Fall issue of The Knot Magazine as she is a testament of authenticity that we hope will inspire many couples,” said Shelley Brown, Senior Beauty and Fashion Editor of The Knot. “Personable and truly candid, Nikkie shares exclusive details of her love story, hints of what to expect from her wedding glam, and her tips on how to select a makeup artist for your wedding day. Additionally, the Fall issue features important financial wellness tips and insights from experts to equip every couple with the support they need to plan their special day and financial future.”
