Hiding one’s faults or characteristics that do not correspond to society’s standards has become the norm.
Many take to it so strongly that they can spend most of their lives in hiding.
Every day, Tiffany Taylor, like many girls, started by putting on makeup. Discreet makeup was a real salvation for the girl.
At age 14, Tiffany was diagnosed with vitiligo. It was a real shock and the young girl could not cope with it.
She has seen people who live ordinary lives with such a visible skin feature, but it does not console her in any way.
Tiffany didn’t want to accept her appearance. Therefore, she constantly used a large amount of foundation, which helped hide her white skin tones.
The girl’s best friends didn’t even know. During adolescence, especially for girls, it is difficult to be different from others.
Tiffany’s loved ones knew her feelings and although the makeup products were very expensive, they never pressured her.
It seems this would have continued without the courage of Winnie Harlow, a role model who proved to the world that vitiligo did not have to be hidden.
Her image strongly influenced Tiffany, she could not be brave for the whole world, but she did it for herself.
For the first time without foundation, she appeared at a Halloween party in the image of the same model.
To her surprise, everyone liked her appearance, not fully understanding that she was the real Tiffany.
After that, life changed dramatically. She stopped hiding her natural appearance even in front of many strangers.
Over time, the first photos without makeup appeared on Tiffany’s page.
She looked so beautiful in photographs that many sincerely admired her appearance.
