Hamel Patel is a North Carolina-based model and makeup artist with over 34k followers. While her feed is filled with stunning makeup looks, it's her latest series of Disney princesses that has the internet in awe. Hamel didn't just re-create the princesses we all spent our childhood obsessing over — she gave them an Indian twist.
"I always wished I had a Desi princess to look up to while growing up, so I decided to take it into my own hands!" Hamel told POPSUGAR about her inspiration for the looks, feeling "the lack of Desi representation in the Disney community" from a young age.
She transformed into Belle, Mulan, Cinderella, Pocahontas, Snow White, Jasmine, Princess Aurora, and Ariel with bold makeup and then upped the ante with traditional Indian attire and accessories. "Trying to keep all the looks different was really difficult, so I tried different styles and used colors that matched each princess," Hamel explained. Not only does her Belle look have a rose, but she's wearing a yellow sari and a sparkling bindi. Read on to see the reimagined princesses, and prepare to be amazed.
