Sudanese model Nykhor Paul blasts industry make-up artists

25 year-old Sudanese Ford model Nykhor Paul wrote a scathing rant on her Instagram account about white make-up artists’ ineptitude when it comes to the needs of black models’ skin



International ramp model Nykhor Paul has seemingly had enough of the incompetence of make-up artists when it comes to work involving black skins.

In a heated Instagram post, she called out the industry for ignoring brands like Iman and Bobbi Brown, and choosing to work unprepared on black skin while issuing useless apologies.

“Don’t try to make me feel bad because I am blue black its 2015 go to Mac, Bobbi Brown, Makeup forever, Iman cosmetic, black opal, even Lancôme and Clinique carried them plus so much more”.

Nykhor has walked for Vivienne Westwood, Balenciaga and Rick Owens. She is also a winner of the Humanitarian Award for foundation We Are Nilotic.


Check out her post below. Yes, more black models need to speak out against the rubbish in that fickle and homogenous industry.
