Pigment disorder, so what? THAT is the power of make-up!
The power of make-up
At first glance, the Instagram channel of American make-up artist Lauren looks great, but does not differ from many other beauty blogs. Only when we look at the photos in more detail, it is striking: The 25-year-old suffers Vitiligo, a white spot disease, which affects her entire body. Also in Laurens face the pigment spots can be seen. Thus, bright spots have formed around her eyes. However, Lauren does not hinder that! On the contrary, she likes to focus on her eyes and shows her 300,000 followers what power makeup can do.

Lauren loves to put her eyes on things
That the spots will spread further, Lauren does not find great. But the young American woman also saw the skin disease as an opportunity to stand out from the crowd and realize her dream of working as a make-up artist. Whether a natural look or an expressive evening make-up: Lauren puts her beautiful big eyes into focus. Sometimes she overpaints the spots, but sometimes she does not want that. Her main concern is to feel comfortable in her own skin. As she writes under one of her posts: "I do not spend an hour in front of the mirror, so I like someone, I make up for myself and so I can show myself how I feel."
We are very excited about Laurens Looks and can not and do not want to look the other way:
