If you’re anything like Lili Reinhart, you probably spent countless hours of your teenage years sitting in front of a computer, entranced by the makeup skills of Michelle Phan, one of YouTube’s first beauty vloggers. You might’ve taken notes from her then-revelatory makeup tutorials with a pen and paper, like you were in a high-school English lecture, and saved all the money you could muster just to buy her favourite products at the local drugstore. Most nights, you fell asleep watching those videos and the advice wormed its way into your psyche, abetting an obsession that would last for years to come.
According to Reinhart, Phan’s videos introduced her to the “glamorous” world of makeup at the age of 14, and they clearly sparked something magical. Fast-forward to the present, and the 23-year-old’s steadfast love for makeup is plastered proudly throughout her social media pages. Any longterm fan of the Riverdale and Hustlers star will talk your ears off about the impressive special-effects makeup skills she’s showcased over the past few years.
In October, Reinhart’s makeup expertise even landed her a brand ambassador gig at CoverGirl. That’s not a job you get without picking up some killer tips and products along the way,
