Tati Westbrook

After going dark for a year to deal with the fallout of her publicized beef with fellow YouTubers like James Charles, Jefree Star, and Shane Dawson, as well as the tensions on her marriage and impact on her mental well-being, the once-reigning queen of the beauty community is getting back to the reviews and makeup.

Naturally, this surprise appearance and announcement jolted followers of the beauty community (and beyond) into discourse. So we’ve rounded up some of the reactions to Tati’s return.
