Plus-Size Model Robyn Lawley Rocks Her First Beauty Campaign

We'd like to extend a hearty "Welcome to the beauty world!" to Robyn Lawley, who is starring in a major Barneys New York holiday campaign. In a sultry video released by the luxe shopping destination, the plus-size model flashes four party-perfect makeup looks: a deep burgundy lip, a sophisticated nude face, a bananas green-and-black smoky eye, and a sultry contoured-cheek look. Each makeup "ensemble" features products from a different makeup line — Givenchy, Kevyn Aucoin, Make, and NARS, respectively. And, thankfully, they are all totally shoppable at Barneys' Face Time page.
We've been big fans of Ms. Lawley for ages now. We were especially thrilled to see her featured in Kenneth Willardt's incredible "Size Does Matter" gallery show. So, of course we're just as excited to watch her make her next move towards total world domination (just maybe with fewer bunnies this time). Of course, we're hoping that this campaign might encourage the integration of plus-size models with "straight" models — because hey, a beautiful woman is a beautiful woman. Are we right?
