Black model Leomie Anderson reveals she has to do her OWN hair and makeup during fashion week

A British model has urged designers to hire more black makeup artists after she revealed she had to do her own makeup during Fashion Week because beauticians made her look like she was “working in a mine.”

Leomie Anderson, 28, born in London to Jamaican parents, shared a behind-the-scenes video during the Christian Cowan Show at New York Fashion Week, which she walked in last month.

In the clip, which has been viewed more than 250,000 times, Leomie revealed that she always carries a full makeup kit with her because “trash can” makeup artists made her look “slapped” – a slang term meaning ugly.

In the video, titled “the reality of being a black model at fashion week,” the model shares a clip of her makeup while adding the caption, “I asked who could do black makeup, why do I look like I work in the mines?’.

She went on to say she looked “slapped” when she shared images of herself removing her makeup and captioning it: “I told him it’s not my color, it’s trash.”

Leomie then said hairdressers “hurt her” when she posted a clip telling her to wash her hair.

“Nobody dried it until the last minute,” she continued, before another makeup artist tried to fix her makeup.

“Nice try girl, but felt ugly,” she said. “Get my whole face up in 10 minutes, can’t go out sad.”

Leomie shared beautiful photos of her walking down the runway, adding, “By the time I walked down the runway, I wanted to go home.”

“Please, hire more black hair and makeup artists so we don’t have to go through this.”

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

She has spoken about the difficulties black models face in the industry, telling the Guardian in May: ‘There are more options for black models these days. When I started it was an isolating experience, you really felt alone. But often the motivation of brands or companies is symbolism, or the fear of being called out. Checking a diversity box is not enough. That is presentation, not structural change.

‘Black women are asked to do a lot of free work, to speak out about everything. Some days I don’t feel like it. I’m a human, not a machine, but that doesn’t mean I don’t care. ‘

In 2016, Leomie criticized makeup artists for beautifying “blonde white girls” while being forced to bring her own cosmetics.

In a series of Twitter posts, she wrote, “We need more makeup and hair artists who are skilled backstage at shows with all races,”

“Of course I get the makeup artist who had ONE brown foundation that she slyly tried to mix with white because she isn’t rested,” she wrote.

“Had to ask her honestly, “Do you have foundation for my skin tone?”. My girl started sweating and said “I like to mix brands”.

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

“How come the black makeup artists are busy with blond white girls and finishing their makeup and I have to get my own foundation?” she asked.

‘Why are there more white makeup artists backstage than black ones, when black makeup can do for ALL races? Why can a white model sit confidently in someone’s chair and be sure that they will look good, but black models should be concerned?’
