Gypsy Rose Blanchard had to get creative when it came to makeup in prison.

Gypsy, 32, who served seven years at the Chillico Correctional Center in Missouri after being convicted of second-degree murder in her mother’s death, Claudine “Dee Dee” Blanchardexplained via TikTok in a video on Wednesday, May 15, that her “history” with cosmetics “isn’t very long.”

She explained, “Before I went to prison, I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup.” (Gypsy was a victim of Munchausen syndrome by proxy.)

Before her sentencing in 2016, Gypsy was in prison and had to rely on homemade makeup products to look “presentable” in court appearances. “I took toothpaste, broke a stick and mixed it into mascara,” she explained. “I would apply it with a toothbrush.” ​​She also took ground coffee beans and “used those as eyeshadow.”

Since her release in December 2023, Gypsy has been working on her application skills and has developed a new appreciation for skin care. Her first step in her makeup routine is to apply moisturizer. “I didn’t even know you had to apply moisturizer before putting on makeup,” she said. “I was always just putting on my foundation and wondering why I looked so dry.”

While working the foundation into her skin, Gypsy shared that she had to be “careful” when blending because of her recent “nose job.” She revealed the results of her nose job as well as her new blonde highlights earlier this month.
