Nobody Told Me... I'd Have To Date In Secret Nobody Told Me...

    • Mental Health

In today's episode, we're joined by beauty influencer and creator and host of the podcast 'What would the auntie say?', Anchal. Anchal is a British-Indian make-up artist, who has built up a large online community through her brilliant digital make-up tutorials and honest reviews. After leaving University with a degree in special effects make-up seven years ago, she spotted, in her words, what little visibility and representation brown girls had in the online beauty world, and subsequently began producing her own content - quickly gaining traction with an audience who had previously been neglected.


Today, brands clamour to work with her and thankfully the pool of beauty influencers is becoming far more diverse. But Anchal has always wanted to talk about more than just beauty. At the end of 2020, she launched her first podcast 'What would the auntie say?'. On this, she invites guests to talk about topics away from the fear of judgement by the aunties - a catch-all term for the judgemental elders in the South Asian community. 


So far in the first series, she's covered everything from mental health and marriage to anti-blackness and colourism. She believes strongly that the only way to tackle outdated and judgemental views is for younger generations to feel they have the tools to educate and challenge the older generations. One of the big issues she tackles is navigating life as a single woman at an age when she is expected to be married.


This is Anchal's story in her own words...
