Mushk Kaleem: My dusky skin colour defines me

LAHORE: Model Mushk Kaleem posted on Instagram that she will not longer entertain clients who ask her to ‘whiten up’ for shoots. Can we just say #DarkAndProud?

“No, I’m not a pearlescent white-skinned girl, I’m dusky and bronze. To all the clients who book me for shoots and then expect me to douse myself in lighter makeup to make me look ‘acceptable for lawn’, I’d rather you not book me at all,” she wrote.

Kaleem added. “My skin colour defines me, it’s who I am, so if you feel like you need to whiten me up so that I match the ‘requirements of the brief, or the shoot’ or ‘because Lahoris have issues with dark models for summer lawn’ or whatever, please don’t consider me for your shoots.”

Kaleem didn’t hold herself back to call out the clients who’d rather opt for a ‘pretty’ face than hire a dark model.
