Bad beauty habits: we’ve all got ’em. Whether it’s sleeping in makeup, skipping out on washing our hair one too many days in a row, or picking at pimples. Most of us just aren’t as open to discussing them in a public forum as Emma Chamberlain, but that’s kind of her area of expertise.
If there’s one thing Chamberlain is, it’s unapologetically herself, in real life and on social media in front of her millions of followers.
While for most of us, the idea of being completely candid on the internet sounds scary, that’s where Chamberlain feels most at home as a 19-year-old content creator. “I’ve always been really open about acne, and period problems, and my mental health, and all of that,” Chamberlain told POPSUGAR.
“That’s always been really easy for me to talk about. I don’t exactly know why, [it] probably leads back to something with my childhood that went right.” That openness and willingness to share have landed Chamberlain many opportunities – most recently the global brand ambassador and creative director for the new, clean, Gen Z-focused skin-care brand Bad Habit.
Ahead, Chamberlain keeps that same candid energy as she talks about the ups and downs of her skin-care journey thus far, where the beauty industry needs to improve, and her advice to someone struggling with acne.
Selena Quintanilla Will Be Honored at the 2021 Grammys, and We’re Already Crying
Even though the 2021 Grammy nominations are a mess, the ceremony has given us one thing to look forward to: the late Selena Quintanilla will be honored with a posthumous lifetime achievement award. The Recording Academy made the special announcement for its 2021 Special Merit Awards on Tuesday. Selena won her first Grammy in 1994 for best Mexican-American album for Selena Live!. Other honorees include Grandmaster Flash The Furious Five, Lionel Hampton, Marilyn Horne, Salt-N-Pepa, and Talking Heads.
“As we welcome the new class of Special Merit Award honorees, it gives us a chance to reward and recognize the influence they’ve had in the music community regardless of genre,” Interim President/CEO of the Recording Academy Harvey Mason Jr. said in a statement. “As a music creator and music lover, I am grateful that we are able to look back at our influences and see the impact that they have made on our community. In a year where music has helped keep us together, I look forward to honoring this iconic group of music creators.”
The exciting news comes on the heels of the debut of part one of Netflix’s Selena: The Series, which documents the legendary singer’s early rise to fame before she was tragically killed in 1995. The 2021 Grammys are set to air on Jan. 31, 2021.
