Andreja Pejic is having a momentous year. The model came out publicly as transgender in July after undergoing gender confirmation surgery; she raised $63,325 through Kickstarter to fund a documentary about her life in November and she made her runway debut as a transitioned woman for designer Giles during London Fashion Week in February. 

Now she's breaking barriers again by landing a major beauty campaign with LVMH-owned cosmetics brand Make Up For Ever. The announcement broke Tuesday in a Vogue interview with the model, who was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier for the magazine's May issue. Make Up Forever confirmed the news to Fashionista and a representative for the brand said more details would be "revealed soon." No word yet as to when the campaign will debut or what products Pejic will be modeling.

The news makes Pejic one of the first transgender models to score a major beauty campaign, alongside Brazilian model Lea T, who was named the face of Redken Chromatics Haircolor in November.
