Friday, 5th May 2017: Muslim vloggers Dina Tokio, Zukreat Nazar, Manal Chinutay, and Amena Khan have a combined following of over 4 million people. In a new video from Elle, these talented women open up about how they use their platform to not only provide makeup and beauty and style inspiration, but to shatter misconceptions and change the conversation about Muslim women.
They open up about the labels placed on them, how wearing hijab is their own choice, why starting their YouTube channels filled a void of representation and how, yes, makeup really can make a difference in the world.
Chinutay said that within Islamic society “there [are] a lot of head turns toward people who do practice makeup or that style the hijab a little differently,” but she maintained the importance of continuing to do so.
Having an open dialogue and understanding of one another is crucial. If change can start with a blush brush, count us all the way in.
