Four months later, she hit 2 million subscribers and began collaborating with other internet personalities which further boosted her popularity on YouTube.
Solely from her YouTube channel, Tati makes more than $2 million per year. Reportedly, in one month, the amount that she receives from her (beauty) videos varies from $8,000 to $10,000, which doesn’t include the sponsorship deals.

Why Is She So Famous?
Tati Westbrook was born Tatiana Aleksandra Kreivins. She is known primarily for her beauty channel on YouTube, which is occasionally in the trending pages and highlighted by not only the media but also by multiple blogs, websites, and newspapers. She was born on February 14, 1982, in Seattle, Washington, and is of Latvian ancestry. She is the first of four children and has three younger sisters.
In the early 2000s, she completed her high school education from a private school in her hometown and began working as an image consultant. Simultaneously with that work, Tatiana developed an interest in makeup, as well as many other beauty products. At that time, she even became a makeup artist and image consultant for films and television series such as “Unsolved Mysteries” from 1995 and “Greek” from 2007.
After spending most of the 2000s working as an image consultant and other jobs in the marketing and fashion field, Tati focused her attention entirely on makeup and decided to pursue a career that involves beauty and makeup products. In just a few years, she improved her skills and found her groove, which led to the creation of her own channel on YouTube in early November 2010.
At first, she used the username “GlamLifeGuru”, however, that was later changed to “Tati”. Despite not having any knowledge of video-editing or footage recording, Westbrook was able to learn more and soon began uploading videos consistently. By 2013, she was able to score more than 100,000 subscribers.
What Makes Westbrook So Successful?
The main reason why the beauty guru is so successful is her love for beauty and makeup. All of her videos are primarily focused on beauty and makeup reviews, as well as tips and tutorials. Her oldest available video on the channel is from January 2011 and it’s a review of a “Buxom Smoky Eye Stick”, which now has 178,000 views. Her most-watched videos are “BREAKING MY SILENCE…” and “JLo’s MAKEUP ARTIST Does My MAKEUP” and they both have more than 11 million views.
Perhaps the thing that truly boosted Tati into the stardom was the controversy surrounding her and other social media gurus James Charles, Jeffree Star, and Shane Dawson. In May 2019, she uploaded a 45-minutes long video which was titled “BYE SISTER…”. In what was her most watched and longest video, the social media guru addressed James Charles accusing him of “hitting on straight men and persuading them to change their sexual orientation”.
The video became a worldwide phenomenon as it trended number one on YouTube in countries such as the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom among many others. Shortly after the video had reached 47 million views, Charles uploaded his own video where he addressed the accusations and issued an apology. Eventually, the two videos also involved Jeffree Star, which led to the creation of another video by Charles titled “No More Lies”. The videos by the two internet personalities were since deleted.
Most recently, another drama between Westbrook and two YouTubers began and that once again helped her gain a lot of international exposure. In June 2020, she uploaded the previously mentioned video “BREAKING MY SILENCE…” which aims to clarify her “Bye Sister” video. In the video, Tati claims Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson manipulated Charles. As of now, the rivalry between the three continues to be a hot topic all over the internet.
Despite all of the controversy that has surrounded her in recent years, Tati Westbrook has often been called “the mother of the beauty community”. Thanks to that and her many talents, she remains one of the hottest names online. Tati is followed by millions of people and continues to make a name for herself.
