Hiding flaws or features that don’t conform to societal standards has become the norm.
Many people adapt so strongly to this that they spend most of their lives in hiding.
Every day, Tiffany Taylor, like many girls, began with makeup.
Subtle makeup was a real salvation for the girl.
At the age of 14, Tiffany was diagnosed with vitiligo. It was a real shock, and the young girl couldn’t bear it.
She saw people leading a normal life with such a visible skin condition, but that didn’t comfort her in any way.
Tiffany didn’t want to accept her appearance.
As a result, she constantly used a large amount of foundation to hide her white skin patches.
Even her best friends didn’t know about it.
During adolescence, it’s especially difficult for girls to stand out from others.
Those close to Tiffany understood her feelings, and even though makeup products were very expensive, they never pressured her.
It seemed like it would have continued if it weren’t for the courage of Winnie Harlow, a role model who proved to the world that vitiligo should not be hidden.
Her image greatly influenced Tiffany; she couldn’t be brave all over the world, but she did it for herself.
For the first time, she appeared at a Halloween party in the image of the same model.
To her surprise, everyone liked her appearance and didn’t quite understand that this was the real Tiffany.
After that, her life changed dramatically. She stopped hiding her natural appearance even from many strangers.
Over time, the first photos without makeup appeared on Tiffany’s page.
