“When you feel lost, turn towards love. Become a seeker of beauty in all things.” -Malika E Nura
They say real beauty brings such calm to your mind, it is almost meditative. When your mind is chaotic and hurt, look for beauty in things around you, the smallest most unpretentious of things. It doesn’t have to be external beauty. Look for a beautiful heart, a beautiful intention, and beauty in the innocence of a child, beauty in carefree laughter. Whatever brings joy and peace to my heart is beautiful in my eyes. Indian beauty or beauty in Indian women, as they say, has been a subject of interest for as long as we know. The Asian beauty and the Beauty of the West are quite different, so to say. There is something different about the beauty and facial features of Indian women that I find remarkably striking.
For me, it is not about those big eyes or the colour tone; I define Indian beauty as elegance and femininity. For me, Indian women, are the ones who carry themselves with a lot of poise and delicacy. Refinement is the virtue of Indian women.
Those lustrous hair, healthy skin (fair, medium or dark, healthy skin is beautiful skin), and those deep eyes just about to talk, are what Indian beauty is all about. An average Indian woman is not extremely tall or too lean with an athletic frame of body. Indian women are known for their curvaceous physiques.
Another thing that actually highlights the beauty of Indian women is their skin tone. If you realize, most of the colours go well with our skin tone. If nourished and well taken care of, our skin colour looks the healthiest and the most glowing. A well-hydrated skin doesn’t even need too much makeup. Indians have far too long been obsessed with fairer skin, but it is the medium Indian complexion that the west is crazy about. Indian beauty needs to be celebrated in all its glory.
I, for a fact, take a lot of pride in my Indian features. I do not have big eyes like a lot of girls around, but I equally love my deeply inset small eyes. I love my big round lips as just the application of a slight lip taint brightens up my face. My complexion is medium, neither too fair nor too dark and hence, I can wear outfits in most colours. They all really go well with my skin tone. Particularly mustard, sun burnt orange, navy blues, and olive green. I don’t really have to think twice before picking up a colour.
I love flaunting Indian wear outfits. In most of my blog posts, I have always reiterated that if an Indian woman wants to look really beautiful, she should prefer wearing Indian wear over anything else. There is something about Indian attire that makes us women look prettier and very appealing.
What I am wearing here is a beautiful A-line suit from the latest collection of the brand Sue Mue. I love this outfit for the colour, the superiority of the fabric, and how well it accentuates Indian beauty. I wore some exquisite jewellery pieces from Jewellery by Mona to further bring out the Indianness of the whole look. The side-swept hair gives it a little touch of refinement and royalty. Overall I framed the look in a way that it looks effortless and still very rich and magnificent in appeal. I hope you love the look as much as I did.
Finally, what makes an Indian woman’s beauty even more enchanting is her sensibilities. There is nothing more charming than beauty with brains. A woman, who is sorted, balanced, independent, and happy at the same time, is the best definition of a beautiful woman. What makes women beautiful is their emotional quotient along with their mental resilience and their sensitivity to their surroundings. Indian beauty is celebrated for the strength and courage of us Indian women. I strongly believe that we should never part ways with our elegance and sophistication and should always stay in touch with our feminine side; no matter how much robust and courageous this world demands us to be on the exterior.
