It’s been well documented that Naomi Campbell has never fronted a beauty campaign before, despite being one of the biggest faces in the industry and an original supermodel. However, that’s about to change – the Vogue contributing editor is the new face of Nars Cosmetics for the first half of 2019.
“François and I are like family and the same goes for Nars. I am honoured to be a part of such an incredible brand for so long,” she said, whilst Nars himself added: “Naomi is a living icon and brings such strong personality to the camera. She and I are like family. I have known her since the very beginning of her career. From the start, I have admired her, her beauty, and her style.”
With her first campaign image (above), shot by Mr Nars and with make-up by James Kaliardos, Campbell will front the Radiance Repowered range from January 2019. The campaign will include foundation shade extensions, a new Skin Deep Eye Palette and the Super Radiant Booster. She’ll also front a new Orgasm campaign later in the year – representing an iconic product in the Nars line-up.
Despite not having starred in a beauty campaign before, Naomi has had a close and long relationship with François Nars, founder of the iconic make-up brand.
Naomi has also picked out her favourite Nars make-up products. They include the Taj Mahal Blush, Translucent Powder, Climax Mascara, 7 Deadly Sins Palette, Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and Mambo Eyeliner.
