WATCH: This Beauty Blogger Has A Secret To Share That’s Nothing To Do With Make-Up
A beauty vlogger has decided to share more than her make-up tips in her latest beauty tutorial.
Jordan Bone decided to respond to numerous requests and comments online to explain her fisted hands that are often on display in her vlogs.
Answering questions such as ‘What’s wrong with her hands?’ and ‘Why is she holding her hands like that?’, Bone set the record straight through a pretty revealing vlog post.
The 25-year old beauty blogger, from Norfolk, England revealed to her followers that her hands are curled following a car accident ten years ago, that has left her tetraplegic.
Tetraplegia - the partial or total loss use of limbs and torso – means that Bone has overcome the loss of power in her legs, torso and hands to excel at doing her own make-up while struggling to overcome her own personal barriers.
Explaining her reason for making her vlog posts, Bone said:
“Being the girl in the wheelchair wasn’t my plan. So I didn’t want people to see just the chair.
“There are so many struggles in my life. I mean, I can’t dress myself or do my own hair, so to be able to do my own makeup is my thing.”
Although it initially started as a huge struggle, Bone recognises that she made the effort to overcome her own barriers:
“… I perservered, and I am happy with how my useless hands help me enhance my face each day. It’s insane how much we grow with the challenges we face.”

Bone left her viewers with one small request, which seems like a pretty fair deal:
“People on social media sometimes say things without thinking, and sometimes it hurts. So next time you ask someone a sensitive question or leave someone a negative comment, think. Think about how it may affect their day. Always spread positivity and be kind. Life is too short to waste on negativity.”
