Millie Bobby Brown is an exceptional actor, ambassador, and business owner, and she does all of it while experimenting with incredible beauty looks on the red carpet and beyond. We’ve been taking notes.
At 17 years old, one would think juggling a hectic TV and movie career would be enough. But not for Brown. On top of school and her day job, the actor is also a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF (the youngest ever named), created a collection with Converse, is the new face of mega-popular jewellery brand Pandora, and – *comes up for air* – just announced that she’s launching her own beauty line, Florence by Mills. And to be honest, we’re not the least bit surprised about Brown’s latest venture. She might be young, but she’s long been experimenting with her hair and makeup looks on the red carpet, enlisting some of the biggest beauty pros in the industry for help: makeup artists like Kelsey Deenihan and Gianpaolo Cecliato, and hairstylists such as Adir Abergel, Bridget Brager, and Blake Erik.
When Brown first stepped into the public eye for her starring role in Stranger Things, she’d just shaved her hair off for the role of Eleven – an experience she says was the “most empowering moment of [her] life.” Although she rocked the style during filming, she’s been slowly growing it out ever since, her look evolving alongside her character, Eleven. Through the process, Brown has tried tight braided styles, experimented with dreamy ombré hues, and become a master at pulling off interesting and unexpected hair accessories – proving time and again that an awkward-growing-out-hair phase need not exist.
As for her makeup, Deenihan likes to keep it fresh-looking, with dewy skin – she loves Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish Balm – and pops of colour for a playful, youthful element. So far, she and Brown have experimented with lavender eyeliner, twinkly gilded lids, and pretty pink lips.
Read on to see some of Brown’s best hair and makeup moments so far. We’re sure there are plenty more to come and can’t wait to see what looks she creates once her new beauty line drops in stores.
