For her cover look, Jasmine serves sports a bronzed smokey eye paired with soft pink lips and lightly tousled tresses.

On her passion project:

My goal has always been to create my own beauty line. I have such a unique skin tone—when I go on set, makeup artists have to use all different mixes of makeup to match my skin. I’dlove to do a line that has tones for everybody.

Maria shines bright in a teenie weenie afro styled by Kayla Miche and a bold face beat crafted by Frankie Boyd.

On the power of representation:

The fashion industry is here for everyone, [regardless] of color or race. When I was growing up, I never saw someone like me, and now the other girls can see someone like them. It’s all about inspiration.

The issue hits newsstands April 18.
