Beauty can come in any shape or form, but when you look at the ads and commercials on TV and other media, you wouldn’t know it. The beauty industry or the makeup world has taken a long time to be more inclusive. While the industry has made an effort to have more color palettes to include different ethnicities, they haven’t made very many ads showing plus-size models.

Model Clémentine Desseaux once told a magazine during an interview that plus-size models “never get called for beauty casting, even though we have amazing faces. I went to maybe two beauty castings in my whole career, even though if I was a size zero, I would probably book any fucking beauty campaign. But because I’m plus, I don’t.”

The following are just five plus-size models who should be beauty ambassadors with their own major campaigns. Look below and see if you agree with our list. 

Denise Bidot

Denise Bidot is not shy about claiming her stake in the beauty industry. She says, “We’re here. We’re shooting a beauty story. Why? Because why shouldn’t we? It’s exactly what we’ve been talking about for years. Plus models should be allowed to do beauty campaigns, hair campaigns, and everything that anyone else should be able to do.”

On beauty:

Her big beauty tip is to always have an eyelash curler. Her friends laugh at her habit, but when she’s traveling and feeling sleepy, or she feels she needs to look more refreshed, she says a little eyelash curling will go a long way. Even without mascara, she feels curled lashes will change everything.

Robyn Lawley

Robyn Lawley thinks modeling should focus more on people and if they feel happy about their natural weight. Women should be proud of their body the way it is.

On beauty: 

Her big beauty secret is using Dr. Hauschka cream because she always travels. Coconut oil and rose cream are also good moisturizers. For years, Lawley was turned down by the beauty industry until hair care brand Pantene decided to give her chance. 

Philomena Kwao

Plus-Size Model

Philomena is confident and secure. She says, “If you call me ‘fat,’ it doesn’t bother me, because I just don’t care. I think that we need to allow words to be words. If my self-esteem and my self-worth linger on words that are used to describe me, then you have a problem in itself.”

On beauty:

Being from Ghana in West Africa, Philomena says women in her country love to use shea butter. They use it for everything, head to toe, and she’s used it all her life. 

Clémentine Desseaux

Plus-Size Model

On body image: 

With Clémentine Desseaux, it’s what you see is what you get. 

“I mean, people see that I’m not a skinny model. So I don’t feel like I have to say I’m a plus-size model. At the beginning, I was more against it, because I thought it was keeping us in a box and not letting us grow as a community of curvy girls and models. But now, looking back, I really don’t think it changes anything. We keep using [that term] and we’re still growing out of the box. It’s not really getting in the way, and if that’s what the industry wants to call us, then that’s fine.”

On beauty: 

For her beauty products, she uses YSL’s Touche Eclat and the mascara that goes with it, brown bronzer from Benefit, and Newcherry lipbalm. 

Jordyn Woods

Plus-Size Model

On body image: 

Being a model in any category means you need to take care of your body. Exercise and drink plenty of water every day. Jordyn recalls posting a gym photo and receiving a comment saying,”If you’re body-positive, then why are you working out?” She found that very strange because being body positive means loving your body. That includes loving it enough to take care of it with proper exercise.

On beauty:  

Jordyn takes her skin care routine seriously. Since she has dry skin, moisturizer is a must all the time. She also loves Kiehl’s products like their facial wash and moisturizer. She also like rosewater spray by Mario Badescu.

These models are gorgeous, and any beauty company could offer them a contract to be the spokesperson. Beauty companies need to look beyond size and shape because curvy girls are just as beautiful and they also love makeup products just as much. I mean, what girl doesn’t love being pretty?
