This Super-Talented Makeup Artist Uses Her Hijab To Transform Into Stunning Disney Characters

The hijab is a religious as well as political statement in today’s world. While some claim it to be a symbol of patriarchal oppression, some believers of ‘choice-feminism’ claim it back as a feminist symbol.

Women have always been told what to wear and what not to wear, for centuries, and we are at present living in a world where women in many free nations can choose what they wear, whenever they want to.

Anyway, no matter which side of the opinion-river you stand on, you will love and admire the beautiful work of Malaysian makeup artist, Saraswati, who goes by the name Queen of Luna on Instagram. She uses her colourful stock of hijabs to transform herself into Disney heroes and villains, and so many other fascinating characters!

It takes tremendous talent to be able to use makeup as a tool and use your own face as a canvas and bring alive fictional characters that otherwise dwell in a different world than ours. What Saraswati does with her hijab is also a great way to smash notions of Orientalism, which essentially means, “…the way that the West perceives of — and thereby defines — the East.”
