Who really is Gina Shkeda?
Gina was born in Canada on 2 June 1995, so under the zodiac sign of Gemini and holding Canadian nationality – she is popular for her YouTube channel and her Instagram account.
Early life and education
Gina is one of those people who are completely secretive about their personal life – she hasn’t shared anything about her teenage years or her background story with the public, which is very hard for someone who often uploads videos on her YouTube channel, and often gets asked about her love life and other personal details.
She is said to have matriculated from one of the high schools in Canada, but then decided to focus on her YouTube career instead of pursuing a college degree.
The launch of her YouTube channel
Gina’s career began the moment she launched her YouTube channel on 25 August 2012 – it is entitled “GinsMakeup” and so far counts over 700,000 subscribers and more than 28 million views of all the videos uploaded on it. Two of her most watched videos are “Fake Beauty” which has been viewed by over 500,000 people, and her “Model Brows Tutorial” which has been viewed nearly 2.5 million times.
Gina has also collaborated with other people and agencies, including Tarte Cosmetics as she helped promote it by appearing in the “Trippin With Tarte” video, and has worked alongside Rachel Levin and Nicol Concilio who are both beauty vloggers as well.
Personal life and relationships
Gina is one of the most secretive YouTubers, as she’s shared almost nothing about her ex-boyfriends or the present ones – ‘almost’ because she has uploaded a couple of pictures with her current boyfriend Max (Maximilian) Tucker on her Facebook account. Not a lot is known about Max except for the fact that he was born in Heathfield in East Sussex, England and that he currently lives in Sotogrande. They are not living together, neither of them have married, and they don’t have any kids.
Likes and other interests
Besides being a make-up artist, Gina is interested in numerous other things. She is a big fan of travelling, especially if she is going with her boyfriend. Pizza is one of her favorite things to eat although she is taking good care of her health, and because of that can’t afford to eat a lot of it. She loves listening to music while her most favorite songs are those currently trending – she is not a big fan of movies as she states it takes too long to watch them.
Being honest about her looks
Many girls and women are admiring Gina for her looks and her beautiful lips, but after one of her fans named Paige Matthews (19 years old) tweeted about her with admiration, Gina explained what it cost to look like this, and what she had to inject into her lips. The original tweet said ‘If I could wake up as beautiful as @GinaShkeda, I’d be the happiest girl alive’ with the hashtag in the end ‘#NaturalBeauty’. Gina has since been praised for her honest response, saying how she is not natural and has micro bladed brows, lash extensions, and how she has had lip injections, and added ‘I don’t even look like this – you’re flawless’. The tweet was loved by her fans and was shared over 260,000 times while some other comments were ‘This response is so important!’ and ‘The fact that she is so honest makes her ten times more beautiful.’
Appearance and net worth
Gina is currently 23 years old. She has long black hair and green eyes, but her height and weight are unknown. According to authoritative sources, her current net worth is estimated to be over $500,000, and is steadily rising thanks to her YouTube channel and her Instagram account.
Making money on YouTube
Many people have made a lot of money thanks solely to their YouTube channels – for instance, PewDiePie, the second most subscribed person on YouTube, has an estimated net worth of over $20 million.
A person earns money on YouTube thanks to the people and companies who want to advertise their products and services on the platform – the more people see your videos and the ads on them, the more money you make. For example, 20,000 views in a single day can generate anywhere between $28.50 to $47.50 per day or $10,500 to $17,300 per year – this count is before YouTube takes its cut which is said to be around 45 percent, but has not been confirmed. In case you have a YouTube channel and are thinking about monetizing it, you can find an online YouTube money calculator which is going to work for you, and based on the number of your subscribers, videos, and views on them, will tell you how much money you would be making.
Before all her other social media accounts were created, Gina had a Twitter account with a small number of followers and her first tweet read “Every single dentist I’ve ever had was brown…”
