When she started her Instagram, Hani Sidow (@hanihanss) didn’t know many Muslim women she could look to for beauty inspiration. “I wanted to represent other people like me,” says Hani, a 21-year-old beauty blogger who was born in Somalia and lives in London. “When I was growing up and when I first started on social media, a lot of comments would be, ‘You’re Muslim. Are you allowed to wear makeup?’ People just didn’t know. I wanted to give them some knowledge and let them get to know me and my perspective: that religion should never be a barrier to expressing myself.”
