After revealing that she was made to do her own makeup during Fashion Week by beauticians, a British model is calling for more black make-up artists to be hired.

Leomie Anderson (28), was born in London to Jamaican and shared a behind-the-scenes video at the Christian Cowan Show in New York Fashion Week. She walked in it last month.  

Leomie revealed in the clip, which has been viewed more than 250,000 times, that she always has a full makeup kit on her. She said that ‘trash make-up artists’ left her looking ‘clapped. This is a slang word meaning ugly.

The video is called “The realities of being a black model during Fashion Week”. It features a clip of her makeup being done, with the caption: “I asked who could do black makeup, why do my eyes look like I work in the mines?”‘.

She continued to say that she looked clapped as she shared footage of her applying make-up, adding the caption: “I told him it was not my colour, he’s trash.”

Leomie said that hairdressers were ‘hurting’ her, and posted a clip in which she added that she was told to wash it.

“No one dried them until the last minute,” she continued, before adding another makeup artist to fix her makeup.

She said that she felt “ugly af” but that she had tried. “Redid my whole face in ten minutes, can’t go outside sad.”

Leomie shared stunning photos of her walking down the runway and said that she wanted to return home after taking the photos.

“Please hire more black hair stylists and make-up artists so that we don’t have this.”

Leomie has previously walked for Ralph Lauren, Moschino, Oscar de la Renta,  Giorgio Armani, Burberry and Chloe among others and was the first ever black model to become a Victoria Secret Angel. 

She spoke out about the challenges black models face in the modeling industry, telling The Guardian in May that there are more opportunities today for black models. It was a lonely experience when I first started. Of course, brands and companies often have tokenism or fear of being called out. Ticking a diversity box isn’t good enough. That’s presentation, not structural change.

Black women are often asked to speak out on all matters and to do a lot more free labor. Some days I don’t feel like it. I’m a human being, not a machine, but that doesn’t mean I don’t care. ‘

Leomie then said hairdressers were 'hurting her' as she posted a clip adding she was told to wash her hair

 In 2016, Leomie blasted make-up artists for busying themselves with beautifying ‘blonde white girls’ while she’s forced to bring her own cosmetics.

She wrote in a series of tweets: “We need more make-up artists and hair stylists who are competent with all races backstage during shows,”

She wrote, “Of course I get to give to the make-up artist with ONE brown foundation she was trying mix with white on a sly since she’s not equipped.”

“Had I to ask her straight: Do you have foundation for me skin tone?” My girl began to sweat and said, “I like to mix brands.”

 ‘B**** you’re doing foundation cocktail. I’m trying to get even ONE of my tones right. What about the rest of my tones?

 ‘Why is it that the black makeup artists are busy with blonde white girls and slaying their makeup and I have to supply my own foundation?’ She asked.

‘Why are more white makeup artists behind the scenes than black, when you can do ALL races’ make-up? Why can a white model sit in a chair with confidence and feel okay? But black models need to be cautious.
