Winnie Harlow updates her makeup routine as her vitiligo changes. The 25-year-old model has long been in control of her beauty regime having been diagnosed with the condition when she was four years old.

She has to alter her product use as the pigmentation of her face moves. 

"So people will always ask me, "How do you do your makeup?" But it always changes because my skin always changes," she tells UK Glamour.

Winnie started experimenting with makeup from a young age because her mother was "obsessed" with different beauty products, which prompted the model to once dream of becoming a YouTuber.
