High five, Maybelline New York, signing runway fave Jourdan Dunn is a great beauty move. Great news moving into the long weekend (no, the LCBO hasn’t extended their opening hours). British model Jourdan Dunn is the new face of Maybelline New York. The catwalk staple (Christopher Bailey of Burberry
loves her) was discovered at the age of 16 while shopping at Primark and made history as the first black model to walk for Prada since Naomi Campbell. Dunn’s take on true beauty? "To be beautiful, you have to know who you are on the inside," she says. "Beauty is confidence and self-awareness." A girl after my own heart, Dunn admits that her signature makeup look is to always make sure her eyebrows are perfect, adding, "I like to stay true to myself and keep it simple and natural."
