Pakistani model, Nadia Hussain, recently took to Instagram and posted a #NoMakeUp selfie in attempts to bring ‘some realness’ to social media and the culture of proper sajjay way selfies.
She called it the #WokeUpThisWayChallenge, which basically means that one should take a selfie without getting into their daily routine of ‘getting ready’.
Her main motivation behind doing this is to raise awareness among the younger generation that social media is not everything, and that they should embrace and love themselves for who they are. She says it best in her own words; ‘But why do we think posting our authentic, real self is somehow not ❤-able enough? It’s time to wake up. Your true YOU is 💥🙌🏽💣🔥’
#Repost @cindycrawford with @get_repost #WOKEUPTHISWAYchallenge started by @iamfashionlaine — to help support the journey back to realness… No filter, no makeup, no hair product.. I now nominate @mawrellous @mahirahkhan @sajalaly @ayesha.m.omar PLEASE READ BELOW ✨ • • • Social media is a powerful tool where you’re in charge of WHAT/WHEN/WHERE/HOW you want to present yourself to the world. And of course we all want to present perfection – who doesn’t love a good filter?? But why do we think posting our authentic, real self is somehow not ❤️-able enough? It’s time to wake up. Your true YOU is 💥🙌🏽💣🔥🖤!!! Today I post this pic in favor of #WokeUpThisWayChallenge & bring some realness back to social media. And now I’m asking YOU to be part of this challenge too and bring awareness and spread this much-needed conversation around the world. Let’s unite and do this altogether! . 1️⃣. Post a photo of yourself how you look when you wake up in the morning (no hair done, no makeup, no filter!!) with the hashtag #WokeUpThisWayChallenge and talk about how you’re spreading the message to bring realness back to social media . 2️⃣. Tag 3 (or more!) friends to challenge them next to post a morning photo
Nadia Hussain had challenged Mahira Khan, Sajal Ali, Mawra Hocane and Ayesha Omar to the challenge.
Unfortunately for Nadia, none of the stars whom she challenged responded, yet.
The first person to respond (from the industry) is Sahiba Afzal. She used to a big-time actress in Pakistan and also happens to be our very own Rambo’s wife.

Sahiba responded to Nadia Hussain by posting a morning selfie not too long ago.
People have generally really nice in the comments.
(Surprisingly, especially considering how much unnecessary hate Nadia Hussain got)
There was only love for the Sahiba Afzal
She’s apparently just as beautiful in person
‘Natural beauty’ was a term that was frequently used
Self-love and confidence looks great on almost everyone
Poora industry ko good looking karar diya gaya
Love was also given to Nadia Hussain
Lastly, there was this person who gave the tagged actresses the benefit of doubt.
What do you think of the challenge? Let us know the comments 🙂
