White Painting your Face | Beauty Crime # 7

Beauty has so many definitions. Everyone has their own definition of beauty and for me, beauty is a balance; a balance of nature, a balance of features, a balance of everything. Beauty never comes from a makeover but from balancing the different aspects of beauty.

As everything in the world has some laws, beauty has them too and there are some exercises that are considered outlawed in the beauty world. That is the topic of this series so we will talk about a few of the Beauty Crimes and the reasons we need to stop doing them. The seventh one is

White Painting your Face


I don’t get it, why have we made fairness criteria of beauty??

If fairness was a criteria of beauty, Rihanna wouldn’t have ever come up with 40 shades of foundation. Embrace your skin tone! You look best in your complexion as ALLAH has balanced it with your features.

When you apply a foundation two shades lighter than your skin it’s fine but when you go 10 shades lighter than your skin tone, your skin peeps through making your foundation look gray-ish black which looks awful. Even too light of a concealer can make you look like you have applied all-purpose flour under your eyes! So stop it right now and get yourself foundation and concealer that match your skin tone.

Also, when you apply your makeup, don’t only do it on your face. Apply your makeup to all the areas that aren’t covered, e.g neck, shoulders and even the back of your neck if you are intending to carry a bun. Otherwise, these visible streaks of makeup will only ruin your look completely.

This is the seventh thing we consider as Beauty Crimes. We are having a whole series. Check the whole series here.  Stick around to know more about beauty crimes that you must not do. And don’t forget to share it with your friends.
