Model Amy Deanna is breaking down barriers as the first ever CoverGirl model with vitiligo. In CoverGirl’s #IAmWhatIMakeUp campaign for its TrueBlend Liquid Makeup, Deanna makes a point to stop blending her light patches and instead allow them to stand out.
Deanna told People, “I work with CoverGirl. I’m a black woman. I have vitiligo. That is empowering.” She continued, “Vitiligo awareness is something that is very important to me. Being given a platform to do so means so much.”
Her campaign drew attention from well-known model Winnie Harlow, who also has vitiligo. Harlow has achieved her own success a model on the runway and in print since appearing on “America’s Next Top Model.” Harlow shared her excitement and pride for Deanna on Instagram, “THISSSSS 😍 is what I’ve been working for. Amen, it’s time for a change! Girl you bettttaaaaa 🙏🏾 🙌🏾 😩 ❤”
