Frida Gustavsson has iridescent sequins along with large dots of holographic glitter applied to her face by makeup artist Lisa Eldridge ready for the editorial ‘Seeing Stars’ which was shot by Lachlan Bailey for Vogue UK December 2010.
Take note folks, this is how you appreciate a culture without appropriating it.
Makeup artist Lisa Eldridge wanted to honour the centennial of Hindi cinema by doing a look inspired by Madhuri Dixit from Devdas. She used an actual South Asian model, did not do any commodification, and just executed the video so beautifully and respectfully.
So no, you are not being barred from participating in cultural appreciation- you just don’t know how to do it.
