The Star of the “Lizzie McGuire” Series and Her Career Since
Hilary Duff gained popularity after becoming the star of the teen television show, “Lizzie McGuire” and after her debut album, “Metamorphosis” became a hit.
Born in Houston, Texas, Hilary Duff started out in the arts at an early age. She started taking ballet classes as a young girl, auditioned for local theatrical shows, and took singing lessons after realizing her passion for music.
She ended up being cast for the production of “The Nutcracker Suite” in San Antonio, Texas, and her talent for acting was recognized, igniting her desire to try out for more roles. Hilary and her mom became adamant about turning her acting skills into a real career, so the family moved to California in 1993.
Hilary’s mom became her manager, and by eight years old, Hilary was getting home-schooled. Her first big Hollywood breakthrough was the lead role of Wendy for the 1998 rendition of “Casper meets Wendy”.
In 2000, Hilary was cast for a new sitcom called “Daddio”, but one of her costars, Michael Chiklis, said that she was too young for her role and unfortunately, Hilary was dropped from the show.
Hilary was obviously devastated by the news and wanted to give up on continuing her acting career. Her mom encouraged her to keep going and the following week, Hilary was cast for a lead role in Disney Channel’s new show, “Lizzie McGuire”.
The show became an instant hit and the young actress started growing a major fan base across all ages. She starred in over 65 episodes and in 2003, she signed for a Lizzie McGuire movie which grossed about $55 million worldwide.
Her success did not end there. Hilary started to win over more roles on Disney, including starring in the Disney Channel movie “Cadet Kelly”.
Her first album, “Metamorphosis”, went triple platinum in the US and Hilary continued to star in more Disney and kid’s movies, before trying to be taken seriously as an adult actress.
The actress continues to star in movies from time to time, but having her success at a young age, she lives a comfortable life as an adult now. She is not heavily involved in multiple different charities and spreads awareness about issues she feels strongly about on social media.

She then uses a Giorgio Armani compact foundation, RMS Beauty concealer for her under eyes, followed by the Raazika Cosmetics contour kit and MAC Cosmetics blush in “fairly precious” to compliment her hair color.
Hilary likes to apply highlight, as well as liquid gel eyeliner to make her eyes and lashes pop. She uses the Yves Saint Laurent mascara for her lashes, a Wunderbrow eyebrow gel, Glossier gel, and Bobbi Brown eyeshadow to finish off her eye look.
