Introducing Benefit's Latest Model, Kate Grant, Who Has Down Syndrome
Benefit Cosmetics has a new brand ambassador and model, Kate Grant, and she's paving the way for inclusivity. The 20-year-old was born with Down syndrome, and after winning the Teen Ultimate Beauty of the World pageant in the United Kingdom in 2018, she has been gaining an impressive social media following. The Ireland native is now also starring in Benefit Cosmetics's Roller Line Lash campaign throughout the UK and inspiring her followers by following her dreams of modeling. Among the encouraging comments on the Instagram photo include enthusiastic endorsements like "Beautiful! Benefit and Katie leading the way!" and "Representation matters!"
