Winnie Harlow is desperate to launch a beauty line.
The 22-year-old model has “always” been interested in cosmetic products and skincare, and she has hinted if she was to collaborate on a project in the near future she would work on a make-up collection, and she would want to be involved in the “whole process” of creating the products.
She said: “I’ve always been a lot about beauty and products, and skincare and make-up.
“If I was to do a collaboration right now I think it would have to be skincare, beauty products and maybe make-up. I’m really interested in the whole process, be it manufacturing, distributing it, formulation, all that stuff.”
The brunette beauty – who has the skin condition vitiligo – has admitted when she first started her modelling career she was not mentored by anyone, but that didn’t stop her from being inspired by other stars.
She said: “There wasn’t anyone who was specifically taking me under their wing. I definitely looked up to people though, one major person being Naomi Campbell of course. That’s like a given.
“I feel like I pull inspiration from everyone and I feel like I’m honoured and grateful that people feel that they can pull inspiration from me, be inspired by me. But I definitely don’t think I’m a role model. I’m not someone to be imitated.
“For me, honestly, the term role model means for someone to be imitated and I don’t feel like anyone is to be imitated.”
And one person the catwalk icon is particularly “infatuated” with fellow model Jourdan Dunn.
Speaking at the Glamour Beauty Festival, she said: “I met Jourdan Dunn later on in my career and I was absolutely infatuated with her. She is also of Jamaican descent, she’s from South London. So we’re both you know, from edgy areas of our cities … We blended really well.”
