In the first installment of What Makes Black Women Beautiful, I focused on hair. In the second part of the series I want to focus on facial features. Black women are often thought to be unattractive because of the size of our lips and noses. Many of us buy into the negativity about our noses and choose to have plastic surgery while White women all over the world are having their lips pumped up to achieve what many of us are born with. You gotta love the irony!
In the next and final installment I will highlight images of beautiful dark skinned sistas. Skin color is not only an issue for racist White people, but it has also been and continues to be an issue within the Black community.
