“I was called a pig, fat, ugly, a monster… I was told I should kill myself because of how I look. I received thousands of messages like this all year & there have been times where I let those words destroy me. But as my confidence strengthened, I became a fortress of self-love that could not be broken by the words of unhappy people. I learned quickly that happy people don’t say hurtful things. And that happiness begins with self-love.
The girl I see in the mirror is beautiful with and without makeup, whether I am a size 6 or a size 16. So as 2018 begins, I’m leaving behind all of the words that once hurt me – all of the doubt that once controlled me. No one can tell us who we are. We are glorious. We are beautiful. We are worthy. This video is a small victory in my self-love revolution & I can’t wait to continue the fight in 2018. I am not the things they say I am. I will never be reduced to their words. I am brave, I am strong, I am who I’m meant to be. This is me. “
These were the words of Nabela Noor, a thick and proud Bangladeshi-American makeup guru, vlogger and fashion enthusiast.
She is well accomplished in the beauty world with over four years in the industry. Nabela’s you tube channel shows her do make up tutorials and product reviews between body-positive chitchats in a witty and charismatic fashion. She garnered a lot of following last year after an emotional makeup tutorial about self-love that went viral online. In the video, Nabela wrote the words “pig,””ugly,” and “fat” on her face with makeup and thereafter, blended it in with positive words of “I Love Me” finishing to a stunning face beat. A true example of how you make lemonades from the lemons the world throws at you.
You want to look glam every time you step out your door right? This 15 minute make up technique from Nabela Noor will show you how.
