This Aspiring Makeup Artist Can Teach All Us A Thing Or Two About Confidence
"I wanted to show others who are tube-fed that they can still feel beautiful and put makeup on as well as anyone else."
Meet Emily Jones, the 22-year-old London-based aspiring makeup artist who won't let a feeding tube interfere with the perfect wing.
"I have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), a connective tissue condition," Jones told BuzzFeed. "I have the feeding tube for my nutrition since my stomach doesn't retain any food or fluids. I have a trapped vagus nerve, which causes my stomach to reject everything. My intestines also don't work properly, and I suffer multiple joint dislocations every day."
