We strongly believe that all women are beautiful in their own unique way. It has little to do with size or shape, fitness level or the color of their hair or skin and way more to do with their character, how they carry themselves, the sound of their laugh and that little sparkle in their eyes. However, we can’t deny the fact that there are certain criteria of beauty, and they differ from country to country. We thought it would be interesting to see what are those criteria are around the world, and basically how beauty is perceived in different parts of the world.
Swedish women are known for their blonde hair, blue eyes and prominent cheekbones. Those basically are the main beauty standards in Sweden. But apart from hair and facial features, style is also a very important. Elegant clothes of good quality and preferably muted or pale colors are considered favourable. Swedes are all for simplicity and sophistication.
The French are all about natural beauty. Minimal makeup, natural and messy looking hair, and impeccable style is what makes French women look gorgeous and effortlessly elegant. Don’t you with the whole world was a little bit French?
Spanish ladies are all about sensuality. It comes into play in all aspects of life, beginning with choosing an outfit for the day and ending with expressing their feelings and emotions. Curvy figures, jet black hair and dark eyes – these are the things that constitute beauty in Spain. And you can’t really be a true Spanish beauty if you can’t dance. Dancing is like a second language in Spain.
German women are sporty and hardworking in all respects. Their ideals of beauty are simple – blonde hair, light-colored eyes, delicate features and a trim figure. Germans are also known for their incredible discipline. To them it’s second nature. When it comes to makeup Germans prefer the “no-makeup” makeup look.
Brazilian beauty standarts are probably the most demanding. Blonde hair, beautiful eyes, tanned skin and a curvy yet athletic figure is what it takes to be considered beautiful here. It seems like women are constantly bleaching, waxing, working out, or getting mani/pedis just to maintain their looks. They look like models.
