A woman caught shoplifting makeup from Sally Beauty Supply said she was stealing them to start a makeup tutorial YouTube blog, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.

Michelle Chapman, of Loxahatchee, is accused of stuffing more than $600 worth of beauty products into her purse with no intention of paying for them.

An employee at the beauty supply store at 551 North State Road 7 in Royal Palm Beach reported Chapman taking items off the shelves and putting them in her purse on April 16.

When deputies questioned Chapman, she reportedly confessed to stealing the items because she wanted to “start a DIY video on YouTube for makeup.” She said she did not have enough money to pay for the items, however.

Chapman was arrested and booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on a charge of grand theft. She was released on $1,000 bond.
