At Trend Hunter, we love to feature atypical beauty, and 'Filth' by Brittany Chretien is a photo shoot that defies traditional notions of beauty and perfection. The model in the pictorial has intentionally-smeared dark lipstick--an imperfect makeup application made perfect with her flawless skin and piercing, haunting eyes.

Implications - There exists many stereotypes and long-established conventions within society today. The 21st century has ushered in a variety of individuals and organizations that challenge some of these traditions. Companies and businesses will benefit by showing support for such groups because it will demonstrate their willingness to adapt to the needs of the consumer. Businesses that distinguish themselves from others within the industry are more likely to leave a memorable impression.
