Good news for the beauty industry: plus-size model Robyn Lawley stars in Barney's cosmetics campaign, and she shines. Lawley models glamorous beauty looks perfect for the holiday season in a series of four makeup vignettes. Called "Face Time," the Barney's film short promises "show-stopping beauty looks that will steal the spotlight."
Focusing on products by Nars, Make, Givenchy Beauty, and Kevyn Aucoin, the video highlights the specific aesthetic of each brand. Aucoin's ethereal look highlights Lawley's natural beauty by illuminating and contouring her face; Make displays a come-hither smokey eye with a touch of green; Givenchy Beauty demonstrates a bold crimson lip; and NARS plays with bronze undertones for a luxe look. Lawley's visage is the perfect canvas for all.
The model's most recent campaigns for Ralph Lauren, Chantelle, and now Barney's are not simply achievements for Lawley herself, but have been lauded as significant steps towards the inclusion of more plus-size models in designer ad campaigns. Combined with Lawley's devotion to encouraging positive body image, the images are propagating a newer and more inclusive definition of beauty. Plus, well, she just looks hot.
Take a look for yourself.
