A MAKEUP artist with bones as fragile as glass is on a mission to challenge the representation of disabled women in the fashion industry. Cary Velazquez, 29, from Ponce, was diagnosed with Osteogenesis Imperfecta three days before she was born. The disease, often referred to as ‘brittle bones disease’, is a genetic disorder that affects the strength of the bones. Cary began professionally doing makeup three years ago, after feeling inspired by beauty videos on YouTube.
