Perceptions of Beauty

What is considered the “ideal beauty” is shaded by the culture you’re in. asked 18 female graphic designers from varying countries to take the same image and photoshop it to the cultural ideal of their respective country. You can check out the original article HERE.

“Widely held perceptions of beauty and perfection can have a deep and lasting cultural impact on both women and men. The goal of this project is to better understand potentially unrealistic standards of beauty and to see how such pressures vary around the world. The resulting submissions are intriguing.”

Ultimately, the most important opinion is your own. We live in a society where we are constantly inundated with notions of how to be, look, act, etc. However, at the end of the day, we are left with ourselves and that is who we must make peace with the most. I implore each person out there to Be beautiful and happy by being the best YOU.
