How Chloe Moretz Learned to Love Makeup

Chloe Grace Moretz might have spent her adolescence on red carpets, but she has the same battles with makeup and skincare as your typical 16-year-old—they just started earlier. “I was so terrified of them making me look like a train wreck,” she says of her first premiere, at age eight.

Eight years later, Moretz has probably had more hair and makeup experience than most of us will endure in a lifetime. She’s learned how to be savvy about skincare as well, thanks to a bout of bad acne after months of fake blood application for this month’s remake of the famous horror flick Carrie, in which she plays the title character. The actress shares what it was like being drenched in fake blood, learning to love makeup, and trusting her glam squad, above.
