Winnie Harlow is struggling with her self-esteem as she ditches her make-up during lockdown.
The model opened up on her life in self-isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic, and in an op-ed for Allure magazine, she confessed that she’s focused on getting back to her “potential” once the restrictions are lifted.
“We’re all in the same boat right now. I know what you look like on a regular basis. It’s cool. We’re all in caveman mode. It’s all right,” Winnie wrote. “Let me tell you, the wig is off. I got a T-shirt and panties on all day.
“I get up and look in the mirror, and am like, ‘Girl, you ugly! But that’s okay, because I know your potential.’ It’s all right. We’re going back to that.”
The 25-year-old also discussed her vitiligo, which is a condition that causes white patches to develop on the skin, and said that it’s been changing over the last few years, especially around her eyes.
“People will always ask me, ‘How do you do your make-up?’ But it always changes because my skin always changes. I used to just put eye shadow on top of my skin, but as my brown skin is coming back more on my eyes, I naturally have dark circles from both my mom and dad,” she shared. “And because that area is coming back brown, it’s very, very dark.”
Elsewhere in the candid op-ed, Winnie confessed that she once complained to Kim Kardashian when she didn’t get any of her SKIMS shapewear on its launch last year.
“I was so upset. I think I went to her house for lunch and she was telling me all about SKIMS. I was like, ‘I haven’t gotten any!'” she recalled. “I (was) so excited to get that little box. Every time I’m at a shoot now and they have SKIMS stuff, I take it.”
