COLORADO, USA – A Colorado teenager went viral on TikTok at the start of the pandemic – and her following has not stopped growing.
Emma Norton started making videos about a year ago.
“The one that really took off was a video where I talked about a scene with Harley Quinn on the film’s suicide squad,” Norton said.
She is best known for her makeup videos, but she also does voice over work and acting.
“I do horror special effects makeup,” Norton said. “I’ve always loved drawing and painting, and I think my love for Halloween came with it, and I realized that this was another way of putting art on canvas.”

She said the works of art take her hours to perfect.
“It’s liquid latex, artificial rubber, that I sometimes put on my face. It takes a lot of effort,” said Norton.
The One Woman Show said she hopes to pursue an acting career in the near future and start her own makeup line.
But beyond fame, she said she really enjoys influencing others.
“It’s the most insightful feeling in the world. I think that’s one of the best things I’ve done,” said Norton.
The 17-year-old uses her platform forever. She works with a local clothing company called BTR. It stands for “Brought to Reality” and helps teenagers with suicide prevention and raises awareness of mental health problems.
