I believe beauty is innately internal. It’s not an external thing.
Just like you can be a girl with a pretty face but to me, if the personality isn’t there then you’re no longer beautiful to me. So I feel like it’s a deeper internal thing than an external thing even though we all build up the external, but hit has to come from within.
There are a lot of difficulties navigating everything as a black woman especially in the industry that I’m in. I’m a stylist and freelance creative consultant. But I personally haven’t found any difficulty navigating [my views on beauty] in particular, because like I said, I believe beauty is completely internal. As long as your light is shining from within, then it doesn’t really matter.
