    Michaela Jaé Rodriguez Shares How She’s Overcoming Her Body Struggles – E! Online


    One of the ways Michaela is embracing the skin she’s in is by working on projects that conveys this message. That’s partly why she’s a brand ambassador for Charlotte Tilbury and helped launch its new Pillow Talk Party campaign.

    “It makes me feel empowered,” Michaela said about her role in the beauty industry. “It’s more of an accentuation and elevation than just hiding behind makeup. Makeup was never that [for me]. And I feel even more uplifted in the space.”

    There was a time, however, when she didn’t think she’d be welcomed into the makeup community. 

    “I was nervous as any girl would be,” Michaela recalled of her first Charlotte Tilbury campaign. “As a trans woman of color, there’s added flair to that. So, I was feeling like, ‘Am I going to be ostracized? Am I going to be seen as different?’ None of that. That was the best part about that [campaign], I felt safe, I felt seen.”
