Let’s talk about the perception of beauty. The ancient Greeks used the word “kallos”, which means “beauty” to call beautiful things, morally admirable people, and noble birth. They used the word with a meaning of something useful- even objects. As you may notice, the origin of the word is far different from what it means today. Do you know what is beautiful today? The most appropriate answer is – it depends on where you live. If you focus on the beauty standard in western world then you may feel that it is unattainable. What you should do is to change your focus and look around. Take a look in Singapore and you will see their beauty standards. Women have double eyelid surgery, in order to get a fold on their eyelids, V-shaped face and fair skin. Some standards emerge from the desire to look more like what is promoted online and on the TV which is not always a great model to follow. Social media and magazines define one standard for a local area for a few years. In the next five years in Singapore, women might want to have monolids and dark skin. We can’t wait to see that!
What are the beauty standards in the USA?
Although there is a big diversity last 50 years like beauty standards don’t change a lot. Fashion shows still depend on skinny models and TV movies still prefer blond actresses. Of course, the package comes with blue eyes and thin waistline. Big eyes have big creases and women don’t struggle to use tape to create double eyelids they just have them.
What are beauty standards in Europe?
Let’s start from France. Girls here love the word “natural”. If you live in France and try to follow all trends you have at least dozens of photos when you just waking up. The natural look comes with little or no make-up, no eyeshadows on the eyelids, no lipstick.
What about beautiful Russian girls?
They have just opposite trend from France – more make-up, more lipstick, at least one-hour applying make-up in the morning. Men consider one girl for a beautiful if she has blue eyes, nice hair and fit body. The most popular plastic surgery in Russia is a breast augmentation because fit body rarely comes with huge breasts. They don’t have many double eyelid surgeries because they have natural folds, too.
Asia has the biggest plastic surgery industry
The Asian market for invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures is huge. Women from Korea, Thailand and Singapore are crazy about having double eyelids so this is one of the most popular surgeries. You can take a look at SGProeyelid’s article for additional information on how to get a double eyelid without resorting to surgery. Many women choose the non-surgical option first as it is less risky and allows for them to preview the results and see if they like them before opting for a more permanent solution. Another very popular aesthetic procedure is a v-shape facelift. Women in Singapore love the white skin and big eyes so there is a struggle how to achieve this look easily.
In Brasil, women tend to pay more attention to their bodies than faces. It is not they are not pretty enough but the real challenge is “who will own the biggest booty and the smallest waistline”. We strongly believe that push-up pants come from this country.
Women from Thailand love bigger noses and white skin, but girls from India love the darker skin and sharper noses. India and England are close when it comes to eyebrows – they should be big and obvious. Thin eyebrows are left for East Europe and Russia.
Beauty standards are different around the world but there is one thing that is similar everywhere – if you feel good in your skin, you will look gorgeous. Our best advice is to feel gorgeous no matter if you need double eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty or bigger breasts.
