1. Leomie Anderson calls out fashion industry for lack of Black makeup artists

Leomie Anderson has made a TikTok calling out the fashion industry for the lack of Black makeup artists on set. In the short clip, the British model highlighted the realities of being a Black model during fashion week by curating a series of videos from a recent experience with a white makeup artist who left her feeling “ugly af.”
In the video, which went viral on social media over the weekend and has received over 45k likes on TikTok, Leomie explains that she asked for someone who could do Black makeup when she arrived backstage for hair and beauty ahead of a runway show. Sadly – but far from shocking – there wasn’t a Black makeup artist at hand, and the one she did end up with (a white man) was clearly unable to cater to her skin tone as he left her asking, “Why do I look like I work in the mines?”
She then removes the make up and is forced to redo her own face ten minutes before hitting the runway. But the disastrous glam doesn’t end there. The 28-year-old model and fashion entrepreneur says she was told to wash her hair before arriving but when she got there, no one dried it until the very last minute.
