“My mom and I both really like makeup and I remember on my 5th birthday someone got me makeup as a present and one of the other mom’s was shocked that my mom was fine with my wearing it. But, my mom just didn’t think it was a big deal at all. I started wearing makeup really young – probably younger than 5 – just for fun of course.
With makeup especially, it’s how I express myself, it makes me feel good, and it’s really fun – it gives you something to do.
If I just feel bad about myself that day why, not just do my makeup and get out of the house – [having my makeup on] makes me feel like leaving and showing it off.
Lipstick is my favorite, I still haven’t figured out how to do my hair – lipstick is so easy but it looks like you’ve tried really hard. I have on this NYX purple color right now. My favorite color is red, but I also play with nudes, purples and blues – anything that’s weird.”
