A Model With Down Syndrome Will Be The Face Of Benefit Cosmetics

Emily McWilliams 18 Jan 2019

It's great to see that more companies are making their marketing campaigns inclusive.

It's important to see more people of color and diverse sizes, especially in the fashion and beauty world.

Benefit Cosmetics is the latest company to expand their roster of models by hiring Kate Grant, a model with Down Syndrome.

This is Kate Grant.

Kate first came into the spotlight when she won the Teen Ultimate Beauty of the World pageant in 2018.

Since then, her popularity has been growing, especially on social media.

Kate has also appeared in fashion shows for Belfast Fashion Week.

She is dominating the catwalk and when she's serving looks like this, it's no wonder. Work it, Kate!

She's also modelled for local magazines in her native country, Ireland.

Kate's only 20 and she's already landed a ton of modeling jobs! It's great to see her hard work has paid off.

Her campaign with Benefit will be her biggest job yet.

Benefit is an international cosmetics company with a huge following in the beauty world. Kate will be featured in a campaign for the company's Roller Liner liquid eyeliner.

Kate was one of four "wing women" chosen for the campaign.

She was thrilled about the news. "This week has been amazing thank you @benefitcosmeticsuk," she wrote on Instagram.

Kate's mom is also insanely proud of her daughter.

"She is paving the way for people coming behind her," Kate's mom, Deirdre Grant, told The Daily Mail.

I would be a proud mama too if Kate was my daughter.

I think it's safe to say that Kate's career is just heating up.

I wouldn't be surprised to see her at New York Fashion Week soon. Or maybe teaming up with Tyra for a new season of Next Top Model?

Good luck, Kate, and congrats on this amazing achievement!
