In a new interview, the Covergirl was asked to talk about her past statements on wearing makeup for herself and not for the male gaze.
"I think makeup has really taken on a life of its own. It's just not about making yourself 'prettier' or making yourself look 'better.' Honestly, it's an art form; it's fun. I enjoy the process of putting on makeup — to me, it's like a hobby. I think that's what it's become for a lot of people, and it's also become more accessible for everybody. It's not just for women. It's for men, too! It's for everybody. I wear my highlight for myself. I don't think that some guy is going to notice how popping my highlight is. I know my highlight is popping."
When asked on whether she thinks makeup has created a community for people to bond in: "Exactly. I wear it for myself because I feel fabulous. And it's also for my fellow makeup lovers. They come up to me and are like, 'Girl, what did you use?' That's why we do it. It's fun. You start talking to your friends and you start talking to people who share that interest."
