Anti-Makeup? This Emotional Campaign Will Challenge Your Views On Self Expression!

People are more than just their outward appearance!!

And yet outward appearances are sometimes all that others see, making it hard for those with serious skin conditions to live their lives without feeling stared at or judged on a regular basis.

Dermablend, a heavy concealer used to cover tattoos, scars, and anything else regular makeup can't handle, opens the conversation about these kinds of situations in their latest ad campaign.

Cheri Lindsay, Cassandra Bankson, and Rick Genest all speak candidly about their unusual skin in the brand’s “Camo Confessions”, prompting an emotional response from many who understand where they're coming from.

Watch Cheri talk about her skin-pigment disorder, vitiligo, (above) and then see what Cassandra has to say about acne and Rico about tattoos …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

We know it's hard to believe, but Mugler model Rick Genest still has some real estate left on his body for new tattoos.

The walking skeleton stopped by a Warsaw tattoo parlor on Thursday to add some fresh ink to his massive collection.

Rico ended up getting some more flesh eating bugs to his legs and foot.

Seksi.

Nicola Formichetti Talks About His Mugler Muse

genest-for-mugler-nicola-formichetti__opt1.jpg

Rick Genest shot to modeling superstardom after Nicola Formichetti cast him as the face of Thierry Mugler. But before getting his big break, Rico was homeless and viewed by society as a tattooed freak.

In an interview with Hint, Nicola told the mag he discovered Rick on Facebook and found his pictures to be so inspiring he changed the entire Mugler collection.

He explains "I added more, by taking stuff from him, making it a bit darker and gothicy." After that Nicola adds:

"So, basically I Facebooked him and was like, "You know, I'm doing this thing in Paris and I would love you to be there in two weeks." He emailed me back straightaway and he was like, "Yeah, sure, I would love to, but I don’t have a passport." And then I start thinking how the fuck is he going to get a passport in time?"

After the holidays Nicola went with his "gut feeling" and flew to Montreal to meet with his future muse and ended up shooting the Mugler campaign.

Eventually Lady GaGa saw the pictures and said "Oh my god, you have to do a show".

As Formichetti mentioned before, Rick didn't have a passport because he was homeless and had thousands of dollars worth of fines for sleeping on the street.

Nicola ended up paying for the fines himself because he strongly believed in the guy and Rico walked in Paris.

Wow. Such an amazing story!
