NikkieTutorials wants to prove that the online beauty community “ain’t that toxic.”
On Thursday, the YouTube makeup mogul — whose real name is Nikkie de Jager — uploaded a video with television star Lauren Conrad. In the video, they talked about how Conrad inspired De Jager to pursue makeup, Conrad’s namesake beauty line, their different makeup techniques, and more.
De Jager also surprised Conrad during the video by having James Charles — who Conrad previously argued with online — join their collaboration.
James Charles and Lauren Conrad have seemingly put their argument behind them
At the start of the collaboration YouTube video, Conrad told De Jager that entering her latest venture— Lauren Conrad Beauty — was “interesting,” as she quickly found herself facing a small feud with Charles.
“I thought fashion was a scary industry — makeup is way scarier,” Conrad told De Jager.
Back in August, Charles filmed himself ranting about receiving a press package full of empty beauty products from someone who he said had “no business” creating a makeup line. Though Charles didn’t name Conrad in the video, he did hold up easily-identifiable products from her brand.
Conrad then confirmed in an Instagram comment that Charles was talking about her brand, and said she was the person who accidentally filled his package with sample bottles in place of real products. Charles then apologized in an Instagram story after her comment, and the two had seemingly reconciled a few days later.

More recently, De Jager joked in her new video that in order to become more like Dr. Phil as her next career move, she had a surprise for Conrad: a video call from Charles. The YouTuber added that she also wanted to show that the online beauty community “ain’t that toxic.”
After a brief technical difficulty on Conrad’s part, she and Charles had a sweet reunion.
“Everybody of course has bad days — Nikkie, you know why I had a bad day that particular day,” Charles said. “Lauren literally handled it like an absolute professional like she is, and we talked via DM and I’m just really grateful that she was so kind and understanding.”
“We talked and she sent me a new package of not-empty products that I was super excited to try out, and they’re phenomenal, and it’s all good to go,” he continued.
Charles went on to add that he’s “very, very grateful” that Conrad was “so kind” to him, because “the last thing I ever want is drama,” as he said.
Conrad also had a message to share with Charles: “Well thank you, it’s very sweet. You’re fantastic, and thank you so much.”
