On her YouTube channel, she explained, "Most of the time growing up, I felt like an alien on this planet. I was 'different' and very driven towards my goals. I spent, and still spend, most of my time creating. I didn't WANT to fit in. I just wanted to be myself."

She continued, explaining that the reason she created her channel, Madeyewlook, was to "Find other creative 'oddballs' like myself!" Since she got her start, Lex has expanded the vision she had for her hobby to include selling merchandise so others could join in on the makeup fun!

With over 2.5M views on YouTube, she expanded Madeyewlook onto other platforms such as TikTok. And, her makeup magic has since racked up over 1.7M followers and more than 17.4M likes! It seems like this artist had found her knack and isn't planning to slow down anytime soon.
