TikTok’s newest trend is all about self-love. While it is unclear exactly how the trend began, users are sharing photos and works of art that include people throughout history that show that their “flaws” — aka, those features not deemed traditionally beautiful by society — are, in fact, extremely beautiful.
Dark circles, big noses rosy cheeks — all of those features and more are being celebrated today because of the TikTok community. One user, who goes by the name Miranda Lauren on the TikTok, unveils that it took her 19 years to love her curls. “I wish it would’ve been sooner,” she writes in her caption. In the accompanying video, she reveals off her beautiful darkish-brown ringlets earlier than sharing numerous images of different ladies all through historical past who’ve curly hair.
One other TikToker by the identify of Taeler — aka @whitehair — included pictures of her Native American ancestors in her put up about having a broad nostril, together with the caption: “Sometimes I envy others; however, then I remember who made me so beautiful #greenscreen #fyp #native #indigenous #nativeamerican #mmiw #navajo.” The post has since amassed a whopping 188,000 likes and over a thousand comments, many from customers who are Native American.
Eileen, or @leeencuisine on the video-sharing platform, took the trend as a chance to celebrate her permanently-flushed complexion. The caption reads, “you’ve been insecure about your red cheeks your whole life; however, one day you remember they’re an emblem of beauty #fyp.”
