Tiffany Patton and the Unique Beauty of Amina Blue
Standing at a formidable five feet tall, just a year and a half ago Amina Blue walked off the street into an audition to join the modeling crowd of Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 1. She didn’t know it at the time but she was entering an entirely new chapter of her life. Her unique figure and shape inspired the musician-cum-designer and that distinction has lit a rocket turning her into an in demand model on the way to the top. In the latest issue of The Cut a feature on the model includes an editorial to show off her unique features that includes makeup by Tiffany Patton who highlights what it is about Blue that underscored her singular look.
Her special features are a veritable counterpoint to everything we consider conventional. Her nose is short and broad, her cheeks and chin are round and full. But that’s her appeal, and exactly what Tiffany highlighted for this shoot. A smokey brown eye accentuates the round lines of her face, while her skin is dewey giving her the appearance of a perfect doll. Tiffany’s work dances: a natural touch edging on plasticine, making Blue look both familiar and perfect. That’s where Blue’s look exists, between our conventional world and the world of inspiring the greats and Tiffany helps us see that.
