Many of the beauty standards in the world can seem unattainable. They can be quite overwhelming for any woman who doesn't fit in the very specific mold society has deemed "beautiful."

As women are constantly being told what beauty is, it's nice to know that all over the world, beauty has found a new definition.


All Women Are Beautiful

As a disclaimer, I really do want to emphasize that above all else, you are beautiful.

It doesn't matter what magazines, social media, or even your own mother has to say about it. You can find beauty everywhere, especially in the things that make you different from everybody else.

The Western World Bombshell

In the Western side of the world, our news feeds are flooded with images of women who have perfect hair, hourglass bodies, and big lips. Unfortunately, not everyone can be Beyoncé.

That unattainable Kim Kardashian figure is the latest obsession, but the classic bombshell with the blonde hair and blue eyes combo is the real American dream.

Au Naturel En France

In Paris, you'll find that the effortless "I woke up like this" look is very common. The youthful, minimal-to-no-makeup appearance is what their society prefers. 

With all of the high fashion trends in France, it's no surprise that the French would rather put their time into their outfits than their makeup routines.

Russian Beauty Standards

Russian women who are deemed the most beautiful are tall and slim with bright blue or green eyes, high cheekbones, and full, plump lips.

In Russia, women take very good care of their appearance. In a way, they're basically the opposite of French women because they spend a lot of time and money on makeup and beauty products.

Korean Beauty Standards

As a result of Korean culture's distinct beauty standards, South Korea has the highest rate of cosmetic surgeries per capita in the world. For women to be considered beautiful in Korea, there's a long list to check off. 

The ideal woman has a tapered/v-shaped jaw, double eyelids, big round eyes, a small nose, a small mouth, and very fair skin.
