This is Andrea Baines. She is a makeup artist studying at Cassie Lomas Makeup Academy in the UK. She also lives with endometriosis.
Endometriosis, a disease where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus — known as the endometrium — is found outside of the uterus, impacts approximately 200 million people worldwide, or 1 in 10 women.
However, because endometriosis exists internally, it is an invisible illness, causing many people who live with it to feel as if they constantly have to prove that they're in pain.
