If 2020 has proven anything, it’s that some experiences are universal — and that extends to skincare. In a hyper-relatable moment, Elle Fanning posted a series of three selfies to Instagram on Monday, September 14, each focused on her seemingly blush-dusted lids. Elle captioned the share with this clarifier: “Eczema but make it eye shadow,” the vibe brightened by a goofy-faced emoji.
With her peroxide blonde raked into a half-up ponytail and a set of thin gold hoops, scrollers would be forgiven for mistaking the look as a mere makeup moment. But a quick scan through the comments proved that the honest nature of Elle’s skin-centric snap ran a bit deeper for those dealing with similar conditions. “I feel seen,” wrote actress Rachel Brosnahan, while stylist Karla Welch noted that her melasma doubles as blush.
