It’s time to say good-bye to the natural no-make-up look cause this fall is all about the electric eyeshadow, bold lips, and metallic pigments.
Even though there isn’t a specific eyeshadow color that is trending for fall, one key feature that stands out is the use of metallic shades. That fierce, unapologetic metallic shade, applied in the center of the lid in a freestyle manner as seen on Gigi Hadid.
“I wouldn’t wear a bikini to a beach, so I’m not going to wear one in a competition to score points,” states Muna Jama. A brave Muslim pageant contestant representing Great Britain Miss Universe pageant, refused to wear a bikini. Instead, she replaced it with an outfit thats in harmony with her religion, the kaftan. Her religious-based political stance pushed the judging committee to excuse her from wearing a bathing suit. An act that has never been done in the history of the Miss Universe pageant. It’s almost impractical to realize that in our progressive society, a swim suit category is integral in defying a women’s capability of representing the Universe. Do we really need to sexualize women to promote their missions and provide them with a platform to voice their opinions? Even though there are issues in pageantry, especially in the realm of politics, there is still power in these competitions. Pageants are a platform in which women are able to make an impact.
