This Quadruple Amputee Beauty Blogger's Skills Will Take Your Breath Away

Beauty blogger Kaitlyn Dobrow has makeup artistry skills that put the average cosmetic aficionado to shame. Her cat eyes are razor sharp, she applies false lashes with admirable precision, and her talent has even garnered the attention of Marc Jacobs! Even more impressive: she all of this as a quadruple amputee.

In order to save her life, doctors had to amputate her limbs. Kaitlyn was also left with scars that covered much of her body.

Despite all the trials that Kaitlyn has gone through, she remains highly upbeat. In case you couldn't tell, she's pursuing a cosmetology degree. She also admitted to liking her scars, which she spotlights frequently on Instagram. "I'm getting kind of upset that they're fading," she told the OC Register. I think they look pretty cool."
