In the world of social media, for women, it takes a lot of courage and guts to face the world without makeup. And when we speak of models, we know that they may be known for their impeccable style and makeup — but a look at their make-up free pictures is something we don’t get to see too often.
Well, in the Pakistani fashion industry, there are a few female models who’ve had enough guts to go public without makeup and proved that they’re just as gorgeous without the work of their glam squads. And, Eman Suleman has to be one of them.
Here’s what she said:
Decided to go to bridal fashion week makeup-less because trying out that whole Alicia Keys thing.
Wearing an @alixeeshantheaterstudio coat.
How beautiful and stunning does she look? We’re amazed!

With or without makeup, we think she looks HASEEEN!
She’s such a diva!
And people couldn’t help but bombard her picture with love and beautiful comments
And this <3
Simply amazing to see people pouring in all their love!
Remember when Bollywood actress, Sonam Kapoor posted a powerful message about feeling beautiful? She inspired so many girls out there when she posted a picture of herself without makeup while she was getting her makeup done and we loved what she had to say:
So, for every teen girl leaning into her bedroom mirror, wondering why she doesn’t look like a celebrity: Please know that nobody wakes up like this. Not me. Not any other actress. (Not even Beyoncé. I swear.) Here’s the real deal: Before each public appearance, I spend 90 minutes in a makeup chair. Three to six people work on my hair and makeup, while a professional touches up my nails. My eyebrows are tweezed and threaded every week.
There’s concealer on parts of my body that I could never have predicted would need concealing. I’m up at 6am every day and at the gym by 7:30. I exercise for 90 minutes and, some evenings, again before bed. It’s someone’s full-time job to decide what I can and cannot eat. There are more ingredients in my face packs than in my food. There’s a team dedicated to finding me flattering outfits. After all that, if I’m still not “flawless” enough, there are generous servings of Photoshop. I’ve said it before, and I will keep saying it: It takes an army, a lot of money, and an incredible amount of time to make a female celebrity look the way she does when you see her.
It isn’t realistic, and it isn’t anything to aspire to. Aspire to confidence. Aspire to feel pretty and carefree and happy, without needing to look any specific way. And the next time you see a 13-year-old girl gazing wistfully at a blemish-free, shiny-haired Bollywood actress on a magazine cover, but the myth of flawlessness for her. Tell her how beautiful she is. Praise her smile or her laugh or her mind or her gait. Don’t let her grow up believing that she’s flawed, or that there’s anything she’s lacking for looking different from a woman on a billboard. Don’t let her hold herself to a standard that’s too high, even for the women on the billboards.”
Well, kudos to Eman Suleman for setting a beautiful example about makeup has nothing to do with making you look beautiful. It’s about time w stop measuring ourselves on the unreachable marks that you have set for yourself. Also, what’s important is that, as you work on the outer beauty, try to give time to inner beauty as well that also counts.
