Applying makeup is a simple part of our everyday routine. But for Jordan Bone, it’s been a daily battle since a car accident 10 years ago left her paralysed from the chest down.
“Most of the time when I upload a video, I have questions about my hands. Truth is, I can’t move them, open them or close them,” she says in the video, which currently has over 5 million views on YouTube. “To be able to do my makeup good enough to show you guys is a massive achievement for me
In an interview with Cosmopolitan UK, Bone reveals she was anxious to share the video to her subscribers at it shows her “vulernable sides.” However, she decided to upload it to “let others know they can achieve anything if they believe in themselves.”
“We all have struggles and we are not alone,” she tells Cosmo. “I really hope it helps people whatever their ‘struggle’ in life may be. We all deserve to live an amazing life no matter what.”
And the response to the video has been incredible, with Jordan receiving words of encouragement from Ashton Kutcher, Nicki Minaj and makeup artist Kandee Johnson.
