Audrey Esteban (9) started wearing makeup in the summer before ninth grade. “It was just like something to get me distracted during the summer when I had nothing to do,” Esteban explained. “It was just fun to do, and you develop more skills over time.” Everyday Esteban spends around an hour putting on her makeup, using between 10 and 15 products to complete her look.
