I’m 22 but look 8 – I can’t wear makeup in public or people get mad at my mom for ‘letting me,’ it’s not fair to her

LOOKS can be deceiving. This is especially true for this 22-year-old, who enjoys wearing makeup but gets judged for wearing it in public just because she can pass for an 8-year-old.

Shauna Rae has to live with a rare condition so she tries to live life as normal as possible. This includes wearing makeup as any other 22-year-old would.

TLC shared a clip on TikTok showing a portion of the struggles Shauna and her mother face due to the fact that Shauna likes to go out wearing makeup.

In the show's trailer, Shauna's mom explains: "Shauna likes to dress up like any other 22 year old. But we go out together and she gets looks like 'Oh wow! What is that kid doing?'

"And I get the looks of 'How could you let your child dress like this?'"

While her mom has to deal with most of the shame people throw at them because they aren't aware of Shauna's rare brain condition, Shauna speaks up about her own guilt.

She said: "Then my mom has to explain I'm old enough to make my own decisions and they don't believe her.

"They call her a liar. So that's not fun. I feel horrible for my mom because I don't have to deal with the backlash."

While understanding why people come up to her mother instead of her, she explained how the more "appropriate thing" would be if people came up to her to say these things and leave her mother out of it.

Most comments left on the post praised how strong Shauna and her mother were to deal with so much judgment from the public.

One person said: "She is very mature. You can talk to her and it's quite obvious she is not a child."

Another said: "It just proves how much people should start minding their business because they don’t know what’s going on in other people‘s lives."

And while makeup is the least of her problems, she also has to manage attracting freaks, a**holes and idiots in her love life.

She admitted on her show that she had been making an effort to start dating. However, she only seemed to be attracting all the wrong people.

"My relationship status is single. I'm short, leave me alone. I attract creeps, a**holes and idiots," she said during a teaser for the documentary show.

She said: "It is scary to put myself out there, but you have to put some risk in to get happiness."

Shauna Rae's stature makes lots of things tough for her, including dating.
