Portrait – when you understand the wind you can appreciate Vata’s beauty. Her skin is thin and fine pored all over, and ever so slightly cool and dry. Her features are often refined and delicate, though sometimes irregular or elongated, and her cheek bones may be high because her bones tend to be prominent. Her hair is dark, like her eyes, and often curly or wispy with a coarse, fly away texture. She may be short in stature or tall, but her figure is naturally slender. She looks serene in warm pastels and dazzling in jade or emerald and gold.
