Damn, she’s fine. Must have some distant english or portuguese ancestry from the colonial times, wich really was not so long ago if we put in perspective, and she was born in the early 80s, wich means her parents must have born in what, the late 50s, early 60s? It’s totally possible that she has a white great-grandparent. Her skin is really not the type of light brown that we see in most native indians, indian women don’t usually look like her at all. Something on her nose, lips, and overall facial structure whispers european… I can definitely picture her with lighter skin, hair, and green eyes, for example, and it would not look wierd.
Indian as in indigenous american or indians from india? As far as indians from India are concerned the entire south west coast has features, complexions, and eyecolours similar to hers. And thats probably around 1/6th of the country.
She looks like a more prettier and feminine version of Youtuber Superwoman
She’s got a tad of Portuguese in her, methinks.
