The teen, who lives in Beverly Hills, CA, says she doesn’t go a single day without altering her appearance. She says she has a glam squad on call that comes to her house three to four days a week to prep her, and that she spends at least two hours getting ready to leave the house.
“My idea of looking perfect is having my hair fully done, my nails look complete. My eyelashes done, my tan,” she says. “I have to have that for everyday life. Even for running errands, going to the gym or grocery store, I still have to have my full face of makeup on and hair ready.” WATCH: Why Teen Says Her Looks Are So Important To Her
“On average, it costs a minimum of $7,000 a month to maintain my appearance,” Tamara continues. “Overall, my looks determine how the public perceives me. Even though it’s not how it’s supposed to be, that’s just the way it is.”
