Concept of Female Beauty in 10 Different Countries!


10 Countries That Have Extremely Different
Concepts of Female Beauty What would be your reaction if we called you
beautiful? We all jump with joy while our self-confidence
touches new heights but then it takes a dip almost as fast! Beauty is subjective and people have different
opinions about it. The ideals or beauty are different across
borders and people worship these so called standards! It is weird that there are norms for beauty
around the world because everyone is beautiful in their own way. We’ll keep this cribbing for another day,
today the focus is on the definition of female beauty in different countries. Does this interest you? Cool, now allow us to take you on a journey
to uncover varied forms of beauty! Number 1. United States of America
Now USA is a cauldron where various cultures are mixed but we still have certain beauty
standards that remain uniform throughout the country. This obviously starts with a tall and slender
frame because come on, Americans are obsessed with the “ideal” body of models! This craze does not end with a thin frame
because bigger assets are bae. Remember Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda music video
which was pretty much about a bigger bottom? Then you add a few silicone implants, Botox
injections and lip fillers to complete the picture perfect American woman! But there has been a push to embrace the natural
body without any sculpting procedures, let’s see when this becomes acceptable! Number 2. New Zealand
We aren’t talking about the women of New Zealand in general but the ones from the Māori
community. Never heard about them? Well, Māori originated with settlers from
eastern Polynesia, who arrived in New Zealand in several waves of canoe voyages between
1250 and 1300. But why are we talking about this tribal group
specifically? The answer lies in Ta Moko or the traditional
Māori tattooing. If you ever meet a person with an intricate
tattoo on their face, probably on the chin, nose or upper lip, ask them about the Māori
culture where such facial tattoos are a symbol of beauty! That’s not all, these tattoos are messages
that tell the story of the wearer, from his tribal affiliations to their social standing-
their tattoo can reveal a lot. Now that’s a story! Number 3. United Kingdom
Seems like the British see the Royal Family as fashion icons because minimalistic is the
key to British beauty! Loads of grace and elegance with a pinch of
freckles and you are the ultimate beauty queen! They say wrinkles don’t bother British women
because they see it as a sign of maturity and wisdom so maybe Botox isn’t a profitable
business here. But apart from the simple look, there is one
unnatural thing that attracts the British. Any guesses what that is? Of course you know that the weather up there
is cloudy so there is less of sun and thus the liking for fake tans has increased! Tan or no tan, the females would look just
as splendid! Number 4. India
The land of culture and traditions is also known for producing beautiful females! Traditionally, the Indian woman preferred
natural ways to enhance her beauty instead of applying make-up. They were curvy with long thick manes, loaded
with gold jewelry and traditionally embroidered outfits. But the British definitely left an influenced
on the country because the dusky Indian women have inclined towards skin lightning products
to get a fair and “better” complexion. It is a shame that the natural exotic beauty
of Indian ladies is being replaced by the race for a fairer skin! Number 5. Brazil
You have to be insane to question the beauty of Brazilian women, after all, the world celebrates
it! While a lot of countries prefer slenderness
in a woman’s body, Brazilians have been known to sport curvaceous bodies unapologetically! Brazilian women are sought after for their
wider hips and large buttocks but like other countries, Brazil is witnessing a shift in
beauty standards and opening up to slender bodies. But we hope they don’t go too far because
we’d love to see Brazilians in their amazing form for which they are known! Number 6. Myanmar
The beauty standards of this country are plain bizarre! Come on, where else on earth would you find
people dying to get a long neck like that of the giraffe? The Kayan people of Myanmar have such fascination
for long necks that they make their women wear brass neck coils to push their shoulders
down and elongate their necks! 5 year old girls in the Kayan community are
made to wear the rings which keeping getting bigger in number as their age progresses. Such brutality and torture to attain a weird
sense of beauty is beyond our capacity to fathom! Number 7. Ethiopia
For the outsiders, a lip plate represents body mutilation but to a Mursi or Suri woman
in Ethiopia, such a plate is a symbol of female maturity! When a female reaches child-bearing age, the
lower front 2 teeth are removed before a piercing is made to allow a heavy clay or wooden disk
to adorn and stretch the lower lip. Over time, larger disks are inserted to further
stretch the lips because apparently, the larger the disk- the more mature and beautiful the
female is! Now that we know about the tradition, just
the mere mention of a lip plate will send shivers down our spine! Number 8. Iran
What could be a beauty standard for Iran where females are expected to always stay covered
up? Let’s just say Iran leads the world in rhinoplasty. Did that ring a bell? Come on people, a nose job is considered a
sign of affluence and is almost expected from Iranian women! These women wear bandages on their nose long
after they are not required and sometimes would go to extreme lengths by wearing the
bandage without even having a surgery, can you believe that? Since women in Iran remain covered all the
time, they take the opportunity to flaunt the surgery of a body part they can show. Strange! Number 9. Korea
If you have to define flawless skin, referring to Korean women is the perfect answer! But it comes with a price, Korean women work
hard to maintain their porcelain skin. You won’t be surprised to know that the
creamy faces of Korean women are often used to sell skin care products all over the globe! This all started when a pale complexion was
associated with wealth and a tanned skin depicted hard labor. As of today, apart from the flawless complexion,
Korean women are known to possess rounded eyes and pointed noses through surgery because
that’s their definition of beauty! Number 10. France
Ah, the fashion forward country- the moment we have all been waiting for, deciphering
the definition of beauty in France! You know the country for 2 major reasons,
the first being the Eiffel Tower of Paris, OBVIOUSLY and second is its love for fashion! But the shocking bit is their preference for
natural beauty over made-up ones! They prefer an all-natural look on the women
with little to no make-up! French women embrace the beauty they were
born with instead of blindly following trends. Maybe we could all learn a thing or two from
French women! Which of these beauty standards surprised
