Despite her illustrious career with countless catwalks and campaigns under her belt, legendary supermodel Naomi Campbell has never fronted a beauty campaign. Until now, that is.
Naomi is a living icon and brings such strong personality to the camera. She and I are like family. I have known her since the very beginning of her career. From the start, I have admired her, her beauty, and her style.
It’s rather mind-boggling that at 48, Campbell is still experiencing ‘firsts’ in her illustrious career. Of course, she is one of the original supermodels who rose to international superstardom in the ’80s and ’90s. And she’s been breaking barriers ever since. In 1988, she was the first black woman to appear on the cover of French Vogue, and in 1989, she was the first black model to grace American Vogue’s coveted September issue. And now it has been revealed that Naomi has landed her first-ever beauty campaign with NARS, appearing as the face of its Spring 2019 campaign.
With her first campaign image (above), shot by Mr Nars and with make-up by James Kaliardos, Campbell will front the Radiance Repowered range from January 2019. The campaign will include foundation shade extensions, a new Skin Deep Eye Palette and the Super Radiant Booster.
François and I are like family and the same goes for Nars. I am honoured to be a part of such an incredible brand for so long.
Naomi has also picked out her favourite make-up products. They include the Taj Mahal Blush, Translucent Powder, Climax Mascara, 7 Deadly Sins Palette, Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and Mambo Eyeliner. She’ll also front a new Orgasm campaign later in the year – representing an iconic product in the Nars line-up. Come into the beautiful world of NARS.
