The designer make-up brand Benefit have recently added teen beauty-queen, Kate Grant, to their ranks. The role will involve being an ambassador for the brand which currently has stores globally. The brand has since been praised for its inclusivity as Grant has Down’s Syndrome – a genetic condition caused by an extra chromosome, a copy of the chromosome 21, which causes a level of learning disability and certain physical characteristics.
The model won Teen Ultimate Beauty of The World Pageant in 2018 and since then she had been slaying the internet with her beauty. Since her win Grant has also walked the catwalk in Belfast Fashion Week and has since appeared on ITV.
The public response of her recent ambassadorship has been filled with wonderful, supportive, loving comments for Grant and plenty of praise for Benefit as well.
Some of these comments have included:
“I am officially @kategrantmodel number 1 fan. It’s ya nothing to do with the fact that she is Irish and everything to do with the fact she is FABULOUS ?.”
“In love with this!! So great to see @benefitcosmeticsuk promoting inclusivity! ♡”
“She is so beautiful❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️”
I am overjoyed that Grant has gained this ambassadorship and is getting recognition. The beauty market has been criticised for too long for being non-inclusive in terms of marketing and the models used. It’s high time that all beauty is acknowledged – you go, girl.
