There are those fashion brands that are unfortunately resistant to using curvier models. But you'd think that beauty brands, where the emphasis is on the face alone, wouldn't care what a model's body looked like.
You'd think -- but it took all this time for Robyn Lawley, arguably the most well-known plus-size model in the biz today, to score a makeup gig. But it was worth the wait. Lawley shared her new Barneys New York campaign on Facebook on Wednesday, writing:
This is my first proper beauty job ever!! Often models of my size are overlooked I applaud @barneysnyofficial and the very talented @benhassett using me
The holiday campaign, Face Time, showcases four dramatically different makeup looks created by four different brands: Givenchy, NARS, Make and Kevyn Aucoin. Our favorite take on holiday makeup happens to be the crimson-lipped look by Givenchy; but really, Robyn can pull them all off.
Because everyone's favorite plus-size model isn't only a gorgeous body -- she's also a pretty face. Watch the video above.
We love Robyn:

In the world of modelling, should the term "plus-sized" be dropped?
