Kids these days. Sometimes, they're pretty damn cool. Take, for example, Esme. She's not just the daughter of Stila founder Jeanine Lobell and ER actor Anthony Edwards; she's a video-making, expectations-rejecting revolutionary. Think we're exaggerating? Check out this video, in which Esme expertly applies makeup until she looks 10 years older and overtly sexy, than proceeds to show herself deliberately choosing to look like the kid she is — in a patriarchy-smashing move that makes us want to be her BFF.
We wish more kids took pride in looking like, well, kids. Why try to rush the aging process with heavy makeup when in a decade or two (the mere blink of an eye, really) they'll all look like adults anyway? (The Cut)
