Welcome back to IG, Zayn!
The singer took to Instagram on Thursday night (July 30) to share his first photo in more than a month: a close-up selfie, with a tearful look. While Zayn appears to have been wearing eyeliner in his photo, a fan pointed out that it’s not about makeup, it’s about celebrating his culture.
“Hi girls, Zayn was not wearing an extinction eyeliner,” the Twitter user explained in response to another post. “It’s surma, Muslims put us in eids and other occasions (today it’s eid), but I’m not sure (surma is not considered makeup).”
2020 has already been an exciting year for the former One Direction singer, who is celebrating 10 years since she joined 1D and will soon be a father. In April, Gigi Hadid confirmed that she and Zayn were expecting their first child together.
