“I wanted to show others who are tube-fed that they can still feel beautiful and put makeup on as well as anyone else.”
Jones started experimenting with makeup three years ago, as a way to help build confidence.
"I'd seen some YouTubers do makeup and it inspired me to try it. I wanted to feel more confident and beautiful, so I began to wear makeup and I was amazed at how different and beautiful I felt."
Her Instagram account already has over 26k followers, and she uses it to show others that even when facing certain difficulties, you can still find a way to feel beautiful.
"I began my Instagram account because I always received praise for my makeup application and I felt that it was something that I could be quite competent at," she said. "I love Instagram, and I felt that it would improve my confidence and show others that even though I have a feeding tube, I can still do makeup and feel beautiful."
Instead of hiding behind makeup, she uses it as an empowering tool.
"It doesn't matter that the tube is on my face since the makeup takes the attention away from it. It's an integral part of me, and I'm grateful for it. I also wanted to show others who are tube-fed that they can still feel beautiful and put makeup on as well as anyone else and to help boost their confidence."
