“I don’t think Kiara would touch makeup if you paid her to,” Bailey told POPSUGAR with a laugh. “I myself love makeup. I collect makeup.” But after playing the character for 10 episodes and living that Outer Banks life, that’s changed at least a little.
“I wear a lot less makeup than I did before the show,” said Bailey. “That definitely changed the way I view makeup. I’m more into a natural, glowy look versus a full face. It made me more comfortable in my own skin. I feel a lot more naturally beautiful than I ever have.” A great feat for any 20-something-year-old, but especially for someone in the spotlight and on TV.
