So I'm mixed race black and white, I have light coloured eyes and straight hair and small lips but my nose and face are big so it's obvious I'm mixed.

Large noses and faces aren't considered to be attractive and I'm highly influenced by Korean celebrities and ulzzangs, so I'd like surgery on both those areas. 

The problem is that if my face and nose were made slimmer, and the nose bridge made more prominent, would I look more 'white'? Because korean celebrities don't look white even with those features but I think that's because they still have dark eyes and the eye shape is different even with double lids. 

Oh and I should mention my skin is very light but it's not 'white' it has a 'yellow tone' to it much like the Korean celebrities do but since many white people tan themselves often skin colour isn't an accurate way to judge someone's race usually it's facial features that give away someone's race.

I live in England so obviously my racial identity is important to me as I've experienced lots of racism for being half black and I've  never been treated like I'm white and I obviously get people trying to deny my heritage all the time. It's difficult to explain to people who aren't mixed race.

So to put it simply, is there a way I could fit into these beauty standards and still look mixed race. Does anyone have any pictures of people who have slim noses, slim faces, small lips and light eyes and relatively light skin who don't look white. Does anyone else have this problem?

The only person who I know of who closely resembles this look is  and I'm not entirely sure how she has managed to look non white while still having these features. 

If your not mixed perhaps don't comment on this post, racial identity is majorly complicated in the UK and it's difficult to explain.

Just to clarify, the reason it's more important for a mixed race person to not look white as opposed to a monoracial non white person is to do with the way both are treated by their communities. Someone who isn't white who perhaps looks white is less likely to be shunned from their own community for not belonging, they're usually allowed to embrace their culture and heritage fully without being ridiculed and mocked or shunned. There usually isn't any issues regarding their racial identity, they're not seeen as 'less' and not belonging.

Of course I'm generalising, I'm not including immigrants who may have lost the connection to their culture and are trying to regain that connection. 

So that's basically it in case anyone was wondering. I've been pushed away from my culture my entire life and feel like I'm completely by myself, I don't want to push myself further away..

Adriana Lima- She looks western but also exotic

Gracie Carvalho

Arlenis sosa pena

Chanel Iman

Lais Ribeiro
