I grew up within the make-up chair, proper? My mother just lately discovered, within the storage, an image of me within the hair and make-up trailer on my very first job. I am eight years previous, or one thing like that, and it was very glamorous. After which that transitioned into preteen and teenage years after I had an excessive fascination with [makeup]. I would ask tons of questions: “Why do you do it like that? How do you clear your brushes?” It was simply this painterly, mystical, transformative software.
[The movie] 13 Happening 30, the place I had my one line, was most likely the primary huge transformation. It was [set in] the ’80s — [so] interval costumes, far more time in hair and make-up. And there was the added romance of being on a [film] lot… I feel we had been on the Sony lot, me and all these different younger actors strolling round in our costumes. Folks would take a look at us like, “Ooh, I ponder what they’re making.” I used to be doing the factor that I had seen in motion pictures and wished to take part in so badly.
Then, as I began getting older, I discovered myself moving into the exact opposite route; desirous to reject all of it, not desirous to take part in any of the cultural norms, desirous to outline myself by myself, with none of these issues. I look again on a few of these occasions and you may
see it mirrored in my work. I imply, plenty of the roles that I’ve finished have been characters that do not have make-up on. And that felt extremely empowering to me. I bear in mind somebody asking me as soon as, “How did they do your pimples for Room? It seemed so actual.” And I used to be like, “Oh no, these had been simply my zits.” That was a part of my progress and expression, saying, “That is who I’m and that is what I appear like.”
After which across the time I used to be coaching for Captain Marvel, I began to change into fascinated with [beauty] once more. I had rejected it for thus lengthy that I might come to it with my very own strategy, outdoors of what I felt like was being imposed upon me. One of many issues I [am] making an attempt to learn to do in quarantine is a smoky eye, which I didn’t suppose was going to be a part of my journey, however I like it now. I really like the method of relearning this factor that I used to be fascinated with previously and the transformative facet of it.
