When you don’t have "perfect" skin, it’s easy to feel like you’re less-than. But Paige Billiot, a 23-year-old actress and filmmaker based in Los Angeles, wants to change that.
Billiot was born with a prominent red birthmark over her cheek, a feature you might think she would be inclined to cover up, given her line of work. But she recently collaborated with several photographers to highlight her birthmark, which she describes as a "port-wine stain," in a project called Flawless Affect.
"I created this project in order to give people a creative avenue to shed light on their ‘flaws,’" she writes on her Tumblr page. She is inviting others to join the project online. Scroll down for more photos from Billiot’s Flawless Affect.
