Precious Lee talks beauty with Elle
Precious Lee hopped on a Zoom call with Elle's Chloe Hall to discuss her relationship with beauty, how life in quarantine has affected her routine and being the face of Make Up For Ever's latest campaign. "There are different variations of our beauty. And, as a Black woman, it's important for other Black women and young girls to see that represented in makeup," the model said. "Fashion and beauty go hand-in-hand, so when you're a girl and you're just getting into your own, and you're figuring out your look or whatever, or you're changing your style, that vision and that image that you see tied to makeup is important as well." {Elle}
