Beauty has always been a subjective and evolving concept. What we perceive as beautiful is often influenced by societal norms, cultural values, and personal experiences. In recent years, there has been a growing movement to challenge conventional beauty standards and embrace diversity in all its forms.

In this episode, Rajan Nazran is joined by a friend, Armand Beasley, a renowned makeup artist and beauty expert from Britain, and also known for his contribution to “How to Look Good Naked”.
