TikTok’s most famous sisters, Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, have teamed up with Morphe cosmetics to create a sub-brand called Morphe 2.

The D’Amelio sisters have catapulted to fame in less than a year after Charli danced her way to the top of the TikTok charts and now has more than 72 million followers. Dixie currently has 30 million followers.

In the last few months, Dixie and Charli have branched out beyond TikTok; Dixie has released a single and a music video, and appeared in the YouTube miniseries on Brat TV “Attaway General.”

Not content with just their own success, though, they’ve even got their parents involved, creating a family YouTube channel and fuelling rumors of a potential reality TV show following the lives of the D’Amelio family. Most recently the pair became partners with Hollister Jeans.

Now Charli and Dixie are focusing on cosmetics, and are collaborating with Morphe, a brand that typically sells products created by beauty and other online influencers. Recently Morphe has collaborated with James Charles, Jaclyn Hill, and Maddie Ziegler.

Morphe 2 “aims to redefine the way makeup is marketed to young people” and uses the tagline “Simple but stunning,” targeting Gen Z teens who are looking for a more minimalist brand. It will feature products that are made to be easy to use, including a foundation tint in 20 shades, jelly eye shimmer, cheek and lip mousse, and glossy lip oils.

Morphe recently faced criticism for continuing to sell products by Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson after the YouTubers were ‘canceled’ for alleged racism, manipulation, and other controversies.

Morphe has since cut ties with Shane Dawson, and was forced to drop Jeffree Star Cosmetics and affiliated products after multiple top-name YouTubers decided to boycott the brand.

Morphe 2 is set to launch on July 30 in the US and August 6 in the UK.

Dixie D’Amelio tears up over painful nose surgery aftermath in BTS vlog

Dixie D’Amelio has finally released the behind the scenes vlog of her nose surgery from back in September, with the uncomfortable after-effects leaving the much loved TikTok star emotional.

Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have taken the TikTok world by storm, very much as a family unit. The sisters, along with their parents, have spread their content wings past TikTok, and into YouTube, the podcast world, and have even dabbled in beauty.

The youngest sister Charli grossed fans out in August when she released a rather gruesome video of her own nose surgery to help fix her breathing, showing a very detailed look of the doctor scraping out pieces of cartilage and septum.

About a month following Dixie received the same procedure in order to fix breathing problems that had accumulated thanks to similar injuries that Charli received. Dixie even had to call out fans who claimed she was ‘copying’ Charli for getting surgery, despite the fact that the procedure was not cosmetic.

After waiting for over a month, Dixie has now finally unveiled the behind the scenes vlog of the lead up to her surgery on her YouTube channel, and it’s safe to say it wasn’t a particularly fun experience.

She included videos of the consultations between her and her surgeon, with him demonstrating that that main point of the surgery was to correct a twist in the septum that was caused by sporting incidents that led to a whopping 14 concussions.

The immediate after-effects were clearly uncomfortable, Dixie saying “I cried right after surgery because I wanted to go home so bad. And I just wanna snort, I wanna breathe in so deep but there’s cotton on my nose. And my forehead’s itchy but it’s also numb.”

In a slightly delirious video taken in the mirror, Dixie said “I keep crying and I don’t know why,” but even after an uncomfortable looking cough, continues to sing “keep your head up, it’s bedtime.”

While the star seemed in relatively light spirits initially, all things considered, things quickly took a turn for the worst the next day, when she said that “I had such a rough night trying to sleep.”

“My nose doesn’t hurt at all, but I have an awful migraine, and I get really bad migraines, so that’s just where all my pain is right now.” The TikTok star also admitted that she “couldn’t stop crying last night over my thoughts.”

However, now that time has passed since the surgery, Dixie looks to be in better spirits than ever, much to her fans’ relief. In the description of her vlog, she also thanked her surgeon Dr. Raj Kanodia for “doing such an amazing job and making me feel so comfortable from beginning to end!”

Dixie D’Amelio is a TikTok influencer with over 42 million followers on the app. She and her younger sister Charli D’Amelio have garnered a combined follower count of a whopping 137 million followers.
