Managing eczema is an everyday struggle, as anyone with the skin condition can tell you — including Elle Fanning. On Sept. 14, The Great's actress shared a series of photos on Instagram of a recent outbreak with the cheeky caption: "Eczema but make it eye shadow." In the selfies, Fanning's eyelids have a pinky hue to them that do, in fact, look like a light pink eyeshadow.
In the comments section of the photos, her fans applauded her honesty with sentiments. "I feel seen," one wrote. "My melasma is my blush!" another said. In a world where filters are used in abundance, we can all agree it's nice to see some realness on the social media app. One person expressed this by commenting: "Thank you for posting this! I struggle with eczema and it hurts my self esteem. It's so refreshing seeing public figures without the filters and makeup to show that we are all human."
