Model with 'black hairy' birthmark uses her fame to help others feel confident (photos)

A Brazilian model with a 'black hairy patch' across her face has defied beauty standards by inspiring others with birthmarks.

Mariana Mendes Magalhães, 26, has earned fame due to her confidence to become a model despite having CMN or Congenital Melanocytic Naevus.

Mariana’s face is covered with thick black patch that begins from her eyebrows and spreads down to her nose - a birthmark that usually appear in new-born babies.

But she has never felt any lesser by her unique looks and has been flaunting her beauty with confidence.

Mariana says: “Many people praise me and say that I am beautiful the way I really am and there are people who say unpleasant things and do not think they can hurt.

“I want all people who have CMN to feel comfortable being who they are and not depend on aesthetic treatments, nor on the quest for a standard beauty.”
