Model Kate Grant is here to inspire
Benefit Cosmetics hailing from San Francisco was founded in 1976 and over the years have gained loyal customers. With up to over 2,000 counters in approximately 30 countries this brand has touched many hearts including us as this is one of our personal favourite beauty brands. The brand specializes in a range of brow products along with bronzers and various mascaras and eyeliners.
These past few days Benefit Cosmetics UK have been receiving encouraging feedback regarding their recently hired brand ambassador named Kate Grant. Benefit’s Instagram account sees Kate Grant wearing the Roller Liner liquid eyeliner to create her sharp wings.
Benefit Ireland source told People magazine that they came across Kate during the Summer of 2018 where there was a video documenting Kate’s model journey on Facebook.
The 20-year-old model from Ireland is indeed a force to be reckoned with and having to represent a renowned beauty brand she has begun spreading awareness regarding the inclusion of those with disabilities such as Down syndrome.
However young Kate Grant is no stranger on the scene having earned her walk of fame mid last year when she was crowned champion in teen Ultimate Beauty of the World pageant followed by an appearance on the British television show called This Morning.
Contented mum Deirde Grant had this to say about Kate chasing her dreams to Metro UK “I love her optimism and as her mum, I would always be there to support her in that optimism.”
Due to Kate’s disability she lacks comprehension in obstacles being in her way and as like many of us she believes the sky is the limit and with that goal, her disability will not stand in the way.
“ Down syndrome does not define me – I am Kate.”
Wise words from brave Kate as she is on the right path to making her dreams come true and to inspire others to follow ensue. After all, nothing is stopping Kate on this journey of success and by that, we mean an extra pesky chromosome in her cell has nothing on her.
As for Benefit the brand strongly believes that Kate’s energy and hunger for life despite her illness makes her the perfect candidate to represent them and their values.
