Model @aamito_lagum looks FIERCE on our April cover, but this isn’t the first time her photo has been all over the internet. Last year, a close-up of her lips on the @MACcosmetics Instagram triggered racist remarks. “It wasn’t that big a deal to me — haters gonna hate — and I was able to brush it off,” she explained. Now, Lagum is opening up about how she learned to love her skin. Growing up in Uganda, she didn’t fit the norm — she was too tall and too dark. “But I didn’t really notice I was black until I came to the U.S. Here I’m black, whereas I was just a person in Uganda.” She's been able to brush off negative commentary thanks to the love of her family. “That love enabled me to love what I saw in the mirror. I learned to love my skin too much to fit someone else’s script.” All of our cover girls opened up about diversity and the politics of skin color in beauty for our April issue, on newsstands now ✨ Tap the link in bio for more. 📷: @PatrickDemarchelier

That glittery lid isn’t the only reason you’re about to be obsessed with British pop singer @dualipa. You may recognize the up-and-coming star from her recent collab with @maccosmetics—but she’s also releasing her debut album on June 2nd. Lipa often insists on glitter when hitting the stage, but otherwise her look is more low-key: just a swipe of mascara plus highlighter. "Doing shows every night, putting makeup on every night... my skin gets quite dry, and I tend to break out easily. I love being able to just have a fresh face, hydrated." Swipe through to see more of the singer’s signature style. (📷: Jerome Corpuz, Hair: @elsahair, Makeup: @ayakomatsu14, Fashion editor: @rachael.wang)
