Makeup Artist Uses a White Model in Appreciation of African American Culture.

Makeup Artist Purposefully uses a Caucasian Model in Appreciation of African American Culture. Crazy right? The picture above is the controversial image in question. He claimed that instead of using a African American model he wanted to “acknowledge, embrace, and celebrate” the African American Culture with a Caucasian model. A** Backwards Right?

Countless individuals believed that the artistry was in poor taste, and classified the transformation as “Black Face. Others believed that if he truly wanted to show appreciation to the African American Culture, then he would have used an African American Model.

The MUA claimed that this transformation was for a “special assignment”. Strategically, he prefaced his artistry with the following statement…

“This is a transformation that I’ve been holding back from releasing for a while now, solely because of the fear I’ve had of people turning it into a racial scandal against me. THIS IS NOT ABOUT A RACE CHANGE. This is about one woman acknowledging, embracing, and celebrating the beauty of another woman’s culture.”

Do you believe that this is Black Face or is it just art?
