Cosmetic brand CoverGirl has revealed its new ambassador: for the first time, model with vitiligo (a skin disorder associated with pigmentation disorders) Amy Deanna. As part of the #IAmWhatIMakeUp campaign, Deanna unveiled the truBlend brand foundation. According to the girl, she has always admired the CoverGirl models, but never thought that she would ever become one of them. “It’s very important for me to draw attention to vitiligo,” she told People magazine. – I do not mind answering pertinent questions about this disease. In the end, I’m just like everyone else, I just have spots on my skin. They are part of my personality, but they do not define me. There are a lot of people like me, but it is not customary to talk about us – and this is very frustrating. “
Amy Deanna is not the first model with vitiligo to become the face of a major brand. Earlier in the campaigns of Diesel and L’Oréal Paris, another famous model with skin pigmentation disorders appeared – Winnie Harlow.
