The make-up artist who is crossed-eyed and legally blind in one eye was reportedly judged for her looks and had to learn to embrace her beauty.

Speaking to Metro UK in 2017, the self-taught make-up artist, who now has a following of over 114000 on Instagram, revealed that she had not always been as confident as she seems and said she only started to love herself when she was 17-years-old.

“I wasn’t always confident, I used to be very upset that people wouldn’t accept me when all I wanted was a friend. Honestly, it took me up to my 17th birthday to really start to appreciate myself and love myself more,” she said.

Today, all of that has changed and Reynolds has revealed in a recent Instagram post how proud she was of herself.

“I know I make confidence look easy, but if you knew my story you’d be proud of me too. The hardships of wanting to drive, wanting to love, wanting to be accepted. As a little girl I’ve always knew I had a mission to complete, but I never understood my purpose in life. I never understood why I’m so nice and people are so mean…” she wrote.

Take a look at some of her mind-blowing make-up looks below.
