The world has watched Millie Bobby Brown grow up over the course of the last six years after her 2016 breakout as Eleven in Netflix’s Stranger Things. Since then, Brown has become a lovely young woman, and she has embraced her beauty on social media. The actress recently showed off her makeup skills with a retro-inspired look on Instagram.

The close up shot of Millie Bobby Brown’s face highlights her look under an old school film filter. She detailed the exact products she used to achieve the retro style in the description, all of which are produced by Brown’s own makeup brand, Florence By Mills. Inspired by long hours in the makeup chair for film and TV productions, Brown launched Florence By Mills in 2019 with a focus on vegan, cruelty-free products made with clean ingredients.

Comments on Brown’s post were flooded with praise for the actress’s makeup skills and seems to have sent many to the store to purchase her products to duplicate the look. Instagram has been an effective creative and promotional outlet for Millie Bobby Brown in recent years. She often shows off makeup and fashion looks to her 60.4 million followers on the platform.

While Millie Bobby Brown definitely pulls off the retro makeup style, her upcoming roles will take her deep into the past and far into the future. The Enola Holmes star will lead next year’s Damsel, a fantasy adventure film in which Brown plays a woman who must escape the pit of a dragon after realizing that there is no Prince Charming coming to save her. She is also hard at work on the Russo Brothers’ next project, a science fiction film titled The Electric State.

The Electric State will feature Millie Bobby Brown alongside Starlord actor Chris Pratt and Everything Everywhere All At Once’s Ke Huy Quan in a futuristic quest across the American West. The film is expected for a 2024 release on Netflix, which has been the home of several hits for Brown, including Stranger Things and the Enola Holmes films.

Enola Holmes 2, which co-stars Henry Cavill and Helena Bonham Carter, has turned out to be the source of some controversy for Millie Bobby Brown. During an interview about the film, Brown told the story of how she surprised her co-star, Louis Partridge, with a kiss during a romantic scene between the two. Brown’s story was criticized by a Hollywood intimacy coordinator on TikTok as an initiation of a non-consensual kiss.

The criticism has generated buzz and raised some eyebrows, but the criticism is unlikely to significantly impact Brown’s career, which is currently on a roll. Enola Holmes 2 was a success for Netflix, and a third film is likely on the way. Millie Bobby Brown has also starred as Madison Russell in Legendary’s MonsterVerse films Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Godzilla vs. Kong; Brown is not expected to appear in the upcoming continuation of the series Godzilla and Kong, which is scheduled for 2024.

Since her breakout six years ago, Millie Bobby Brown has grown into a successful young actress and businesswoman. The fledgling star has already delivered a slew of film and television hits, along with an impressive entrepreneurial endeavor with Florence By Mills. And at only 18 years old, Brown’s already prolific career has only just begun.
