Nikkie de Jager, the world famous beauty blogger from the Netherlands, was hospitalized this week. She has a chronic condition and needed an IV.
Nikkie de Jager, who conquers the world as Nikkie Tutorials with – often spectacular – make-up tricks, has had a chronic condition for a while. Her diagnosis? The inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), a chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract.
Although there are drugs for the disease, they were not successful for her. To feel better about herself, the 26-year-old makeup artist now has to go to the hospital every two weeks to receive medication via an IV. “Here we go again”, she wrote with a selfie during her recording on her Instagram Stories.
De Jager, who came out as transgender in early 2020, has often been in the news in recent years. Among other things, because she was already allowed to make up Kim Kardashian and teamed up with rapper Snoop Dogg to promote Marc Jacobs make-up products.
