I met the incredible celebrity makeup artist Nick Posley two years ago (before I went vegan) and we’ve been working together ever since. He has such an amazing spirit and his work speaks for itself.
He’s not a vegan makeup artist but I was surprised by how many vegan products he uses. Anyway, a shot from our play date a few weeks ago.
This type of modeling is okay by me because I’m not promoting the non-vegan makeup–I’m promoting the artist. Not all vegans have completely vegan careers, and while that’s definitely something I’m working toward, I’m doing this in the mean time.
I was all about promoting images of black beauty before I went vegan and I don’t want to stop. Young girls need to see themselves reflected in positive lights. If I have the opportunity to work with incredible artists like Nicky in a way that doesn’t directly promote animal abuse, I’m in.
Think my work is unethical? Leave a comment below and tell me about it.
