Millie Bobby Brown isn’t in the news for her acting skills this time around but for a reason even stranger than Stranger Things.
The actor was recently called out by her fans, who think she faked a skincare tutorial for her Florence by Mills beauty range as her makeup remained completely intact throughout the video, reported Page Six.
In order to promote her brand, the 15-year-old star shared a since-deleted skincare tutorial on Instagram, showing her followers her night-time skincare regimen. This was supposed to incorporate several of her line’s products: a face mist, scrub, cleanser, moisturiser, and lip oil.
The star uploaded a skincare regime video but didn’t appear to be using any product. In the video, Brown showed off her face mist and even claimed to apply her facial scrub but fans were left confused as it appeared she wasn’t actually applying anything on her face and was just rubbing it without any product on. They also pointed out that her eye makeup remains intact throughout the tutorial.
Naturally, Twitter had a field day. “Millie Bobby Brown acting like she’s putting on face creams but literally just rubbing her empty hands on her face isn’t even that funny but it brings me so much entertainment,” one user wrote.
Another Twitter user seemed to be having virtual laughing fits. “”I’m in tears Millie Bobby Brown did a skincare demo using her brands products WITHOUT ACTUALLY USING THEM.”
Others were just confused. “Why did Millie Bobby Brown only pretend to apply her skincare products and subject us to the dryness of her hands against her face, trying to get us to believe she was doing the real thing?”
“The only thing I can think is that this was supposed to be a super scripted video and this was a practice run and they posted the wrong one? It’s so bizarre otherwise,” another user wrote.
Brown addressed the backlash in a Notes app screengrab she posted on Instagram.
“I’m still learning the best way to share my routines as I get to know this space better — I’m not an expert,” the star began. “I thought doing a quick video replicating my personal process for that night was okay, but that’s not what was conveyed. I understand, I appreciate all of your feedback on this journey, please keep sharing your thoughts and I will too! ily guys x #loveandlight.”
