Model Aaron Philip Reveals Her Favorite Beauty Products of All Time

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and WorldPride, official sponsor of 2019 World pride Unilever is working with organizations and influencers within the LGBTQ+ community to launch the "United We Stand" campaign, which went live on May 29 with a video introducing the faces of the meaningful project.

"If we don’t take care of our own, then who’s going to do it?” Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess says in the video. And that's exactly what he and the other five stars of this campaign are doing by sharing their stories and messages. He's joined by FOX Star actress Amiyah Scott, New Orleans-bred Bounce musician Big Freedia, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Lachlan Watson, 13 Reasons Why star Tommy Dorfman, and the first Black, trans, and disabled model to sign with Elite Model Management, Aaron Philip. In addition to the introductory clip, each star created a short video in which they promote their central message.

Through her involvement in the "United We Stand" campaign, Philip wants to tell that world that beauty isn't binary, and "it will never conform." We had the opportunity to chat with Philip about her beauty routine and what partnering with Unilever brand Dove and the Audre Lorde Project for this campaign means to her.

ALLURE: Can you tell me more about your involvement with Unilever and this anniversary film? Why did you want to get involved?

AARON PHILIP: “The concept is ‘beauty isn't binary,' and basically, this is a bunch of actors and musicians and models like myself coming together to be in this project that celebrates beauty for what it is, as us, as we are. And I think that's such a core message. Dove is such a cool brand because [its] whole model is inclusion, including different gender and body types, people in general, races, skin tones — you know, they make stuff for everyone.

And I think that when it comes to beauty not being something that's binary, it's so crucial that you include people. Because when you include people, that just starts to raise visibility for people beyond what you've seen before. So, the point of people not being binary is definitely inclusion and just making sure that everyone feels visually represented in their own way. And I think that the casting is so special because it's all of us just in our differences, coming together, loving each other, just being here for each other, and making space for each other. That's the point. Dove is making space for people, for everyone.”

ALLURE: That’s awesome. Let's chat about your beauty routine. What’s your all-time favorite makeup product or brand? And why?

AP: “To be so honest, I'm a very simple girl. I just love me a Mario Badescu lip balm, and I call it a day. I slap that on my eyebrows, so think of it as a gel. I put it on my lips, it's clipped. I'm a really simple girl. I don't wear too much makeup outside of a set because I want to preserve my skin, I guess. But I do a lot of hair care.”

ALLURE: Why did you bleach your hair? Do you have any plans to change the color?

AP: "I wanted to do blonde because, at the moment, I wanted to feel more feminine. I feel like blonde is a very... it's kind of a staple statement to say, you know, ‘Blondes have more fun. Blonde is beautiful. Blonde is cool.’ And first of all, when it comes to skin tone, as a Black person, blonde in that contrast looks good all by itself. But as a Black woman, I wanted to feel sexy, and I feel like I had black hair for so long, I wanted to change it up and feel different. And with the change in my hair, I could change my style.
