Winnie Harlow is desperate to launch a beauty line, and has teased if she was to collaborate on a project it would be a cosmetics of skincare range.

The 22-year-old model has always been interested in cosmetic products and skincare, and she has hinted if she was to collaborate on a project in the near future she would work on a make-up collection, and she would want to be involved in the whole process of creating the products. 

She said: "I've always been a lot about beauty and products, and skincare and make-up. "If I was to do a collaboration right now I think it would have to be skincare, beauty products and maybe make-up. I'm really interested in the whole process, be it manufacturing, distributing it, formulation, all that stuff."

The brunette beauty who has the skin condition vitiligo has admitted when she first started her modeling career she was not mentored by anyone, but that didn't stop her from being inspired by other stars. She said: "There wasn't anyone who was specifically taking me under their wing. I definitely looked up to people though, one major person being Naomi Campbell of course. That's like a given.

"I feel like I pull inspiration from everyone and I feel like I'm honoured and grateful that people feel that they can pull inspiration from me, be inspired by me. But I definitely don't think I'm a role model. I'm not someone to be imitated. "For me, honestly, the term role model means for someone to be imitated and I don't feel like anyone is to be imitated."

And one person the catwalk icon is particularly "infatuated" with fellow model Jourdan Dunn. Speaking at the Glamour Beauty Festival, she said: "I met Jourdan Dunn later on in my career and I was absolutely infatuated with her. She is also of Jamaican descent, she's from South London. So we're both you know, from edgy areas of our cities ... We blended really well."
