The power of makeup is absolutely amazing.
While we are told to embrace our flaws and imperfections, not everyone has the ability to do so. Many people knock woman for rocking a full face of makeup, but you never know the story behind why they might be wearing a full face. Joanne Tronconi was born with what is known as port-wine stain, which is basically a birthmark reminiscent of a red wine stain. In her 20's, Tronconi found out that she later had a rare condition called Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome where your body swells wherever your birthmark is present. For this young woman, the birthmark happened to be on her face, as well s several other locations on her body.
Like anyone, Tronconi was forced to learn to love herself despite her condition and that's exactly what she did. Despite Tronconi knowing her beauty, she can't speak for others. 'Many people stare, comment, and come up with their own conclusions. It's really just a matter of perspective', she mentions. The one thing that gives her that ultimate boost of confidence is wearing makeup. Her son who happens to be a huge fan of makeup himself and pretty out there on YouTube [see here], the transformation was set to begin.
