On June 18th, in a show called Woman's Hour on BBC, Naomi Campbell shared about her first time modeled on cover of Vogue no.6 in 1988.
When she came to the studio, a makeup artist said that they hadn't know Naomi was black. Then they had to mix up the colors of the foundation to create a "grey" makeup for her. The model then saw herself on the cover of the famous magazine, she couldn't hold back the tears and started to cry.
She said: "I dreamed to be on the cover of this magazine. It's Vogue Italy. But I didn't want to look that grey."
After that unsatisfied memory, Naomi has always brought her own foundation to every shooting. So that no makeup artist could recreate a makeup that doesn't fit her real skin color.
