I'm sure you all already know Cassandra Bankson, the youtuber who posts on DiamondsAndHeels14. She became known around the world after her video showing her covering up acne with makeup went viral on the internet. If you haven't seen it yet, find it below.
Well, this morning I came across one article in which Cassandra talks about how makeup helps her reveal herself to the people she meets exactly as she really is and not how the severe acne she suffers from looks like. More than three years have passed since that video was made on YT, during which time her skin problems have improved but not disappeared. Now she is a gorgeous model, but you will see for yourself in this clip, which can show its true beauty only with the help of makeup.
Then I saw the video of Cheri, another young and beautiful woman, but suffering from a more severe form of vitiligo.
If there are times when I forget why I love makeup, such confessions remind me instantly. Perfection does not exist, and beauty is relative. I've said it before here.
