PS: Thank you for being so honest. You're a millennial role model, and it's really important to get voices like yours out there. Let's move over to lighter topics and return to the deeper ones later. You are known for being a DIY girl — even when it comes to major award shows. What's your face-painting process?
ZC: It's a long process. I always start off with good skin. You have to take care of your skin . . . I don't really have a skin care routine. I will say that my number one thing is make sure you take off your makeup before you go to sleep. Make sure you wash your face good before you go to sleep, because if not, [the makeup] will sit in your pores. It is just bad.
PS: Do you have a favorite makeup-removal formula?
ZC: Makeup wipes. Boom, done. It's easy, simple. You don't have to worry about it, and you can go to sleep.
PS: Back to putting makeup on . . .
ZC: I always start with my eyes, because whatever fallout happens, you don't want that on the face you just did. So, do your eyes first, wipe off all the fallout, and then get started on your face — highlight, contour, whatever you want to do.
