Last week, model Leomie Anderson made headlines when she called out make up artists unprepared to work with models of color backstage at runway shows. During the rant, she promised followers a video of her “Black Model Survival Kit,” and today she has delivered on that promise.
In addition to giving tips on how to do your own makeup if you suffer from a “beard” look in some photos, the model also recounts a story from last September when she got in a heated back and forth with a hair person for standing by what she knew to be right. It’s an interesting video with tips for all women, whether or not you have aspirations to be a model but here we’ve sussed out the five key products at Anderson advises carrying around at all times.
Don’t let anyone have you out here looking ashy. Do yourself a favor and grab the right shade for your color and your undertones. Available online.
A hair spray that’s gentle on your hair and brushes out? It’s time to pick some up.
If you’re hoping for a wet hair look with out the muckiness of hair gel, use an oil. Anderson’s suggestion comes from L’Oreal.
That does it!
