This is just something I’ve noticed

The lighter your complexion is, the more contrast you’ll have between two natural hues; your skin, and color of your hair, but more so, if the hair is darker than the skin. When given a certain amount of lighting, it will outline the shape of their features giving off depth. That’s why when they contour their face with makeup, especially with darker colors, it makes their features pop out even more than it had originally.

The darker your skin is, the less contrast between the two hues you will have, because they almost blend together. When you combine, brighter backgrounds with darker lighting, and then add a hint of light coming from either above, or from one side of them, it creates more depth over their features. Too much lightning, or too much of a shadow will wash it out. Certain bright, and earth tone colors will bring out that depth even more, which as a result outlines the shape of their features. That’s why charcoal black, gold, silver, and white typically pop even greater on those with darker skin tones, because it’s a balance between light and dark. Deeper reds, and purples also look great on them as well.

How people perceive your features is totally based off shapes and sizes, and which one they appeal to.

So, I don’t believe that one is truly more beautiful than the other at the end of the day. It’s really about how our perception has been created. The fact that we have a system set in place to honor one spectrum of beauty over the other, creating a negative outlook around one, while limiting that beauty from being shown just as dominantly as other, is the primary reason why some of us have this idea that we’re not equal enough in admiration. It’s created a one sided perception of beauty in our minds, which also has created division, covetousness and competition between the two shades.
