Stranger Things superstar Millie Bobby Brown says she isn’t afraid of getting acne as she launches her cruelty-free make-up range.
The 15-year-old actress has wowed us again with her wise attitude towards life.
Amidst launching her very own cruelty-free beauty brand, Florence by Mills, the actress has opened up about how she isn’t bothered about getting spots.
Sharing her own journey with make-up, she said she doesn’t mind getting spots because they are part of ‘growing’.
The star, who is best known for her role as Eleven in the Netflix series Stranger Things, recently spoke to Refinery 29 about it all.
‘I do get the odd pimple,’ she said. ‘I’ll probably get a pimple tomorrow.
‘I actually love it though; I don’t know why.
‘I think I just appreciate the growing — like I’m growing.’
Millie also thinks women should feel free to do their make-up however they choose – or not at all – because it’s all about creating a look that makes you ‘feel good’.
She said: ‘For so long it’s been that women are supposed to wear make-up, but I think there isn’t really a right way to use it.
‘As long as you’re being yourself, then why can’t you wear make-up? It’s not about other people; it’s about making yourself feel good.’
Her new make-up line is PETA-certified, vegan and cruelty free, with Millie insisting the whole collection be based around ‘individuality and bravery’.
She called it Florence by Mills because Florence is the name of her grandmother and Mills is the nickname her friends and family call her.
‘I felt like a brand about individuality and bravery and being truthful should be named after somebody who was all of those things,’ she said.
The Modern Family star went on to explain that the beauty range, which contains products like Light Skin Tint and Eye Gel Pads, is aimed at young people, using the knowledge she’s gained having started her acting career at a very young age.
‘I’ve been in a make-up chair since I was 10, 11 years old, and I have really been introduced to all types of products,’ Millie explained.
‘I’ve had special effects on my face, blood, all different types of foundation…I wanted to come into the space because there was a gap in the market for young people.’
Florence by Mills is available at Ulta Beauty in the US and Boots in the UK and is budget-friendly with prices starting at $10 (£8) up to $34 (£28), and products will also be available online.
A section of proceeds made will go to the Olivia Hope Foundation, which aims to honour Millie’s late friend Olivia Hope LoRusso, who died following a 15-month battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
