Confidence is half the beauty. The amount of brides who come in with the lowest self esteem and the prettiest eastern features with dusky skin tones, its really a bummer!😞
To come to think of it, post-colonialism is the actual deep rooted cause here, because Pakistan was once ruled by the British, the aftermath is our elders minds are conditioned to think European features and fairer skin tones are superior. Therefore some of us grow up listening to how their skins should be “brighter” “whiter” thus “more” beautiful.
Half my job is explaining how theres no ‘bar’ of beauty and how beautiful they are in their own way. I also personally feel makeup comes out ten folds as stunning on duskier complexions and eastern features🙌🏼🤩 #EmbraceWhoYouAre #TheresNoEpitome #ConfidenceIsSexy #NKdiaries #NatashaKhan #TheMakeupSuite
