EL: I’ve always been really into makeup, but I started getting really invested when I was about 17.

EL: Makeup is so important to me, and always has been. I do my makeup anytime I’m feeling anxious and it always makes me feel better. Makeup is transformative, and my favorite thing about it is that it can be used as self-expression or self-defense. With makeup, you can be anyone you want to be.
