Interesting mix. Didn’t expect these two ethnicities.

Many white Australian women with recent Aboriginal ancestry look like that.

I think she looks American Indian. American Indian faces age much faster than any other ethnicity. That’s why there are so many people of American Indian descent that look much older than they really are.

If she looks like this then her mother must look twice as repulsive.
