Sporting golden curled locks, a little black dress and chic strappy heels, Sophie demanded attention when she began contouring her cheeks, and applied a swipe of pink gloss to her lips.

Speaking to the New York Post, Sophie explained that the beauty craze is all about feeling ‘confident’ and ’empowered’ when suffering from a broken heart. 

‘It’s the perfect way to say [to an ex], you f***ed up, and now I’m going to take my power back,’ she said. 

‘When I’m in revenge makeup, I feel like a bad b****, like my edginess demands a different level of respect,’ Sophie added.
