M1 Cover Stories: Neelam for Stylist Magazine

M1 cover girl and L’Oreal UK Ambassador, Neelam Gill, is front and center of this week’s Stylist magazine. The British-Asian beauty highlights the glossed and peachy looks of the summer with L’Oreal make-up but don’t be mistaken, this feature isn’t just about primers and powders. Neelam goes deeper inside the mag, discussing her experiences with racism and confidence within the modelling industry, telling readers how she’s managed to keep her head above the water.

As she continues to utilise her platform as a model and rising social media star to inspire and uplift young women, Neelam remains a down-to-earth young woman with her eyes set on the future.

We followed up with Neelam to chat a bit more about beauty and which members of the M1 team have model potential.
