Women are not the same and, of course, we see beauty with different views. However, we would think that being all Latinas we would understand what are the canons that differentiate a beautiful woman from a less graceful one, right? Well, no!
It turns out that our Latin America is so vast and diverse that nations expect a specific stereotype in every woman. An experiment from the Superdrug Online Doctor site decided to ask designers from different countries to Photoshop the image of a woman according to what they considered to be feminine beauty …
And it turned out that the girls from, for example, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, Venezuela, Spain, USA and Colombia did not agree on their concept of what it is to be beautiful! Quite far from the cliche we see on screen.
Mexico, Colombia and Spain
The Mexican model appears noticeably slimmer, with brown hair and skin a couple of shades darker than the original. The Spanish and Colombian versions were the roundest, almost a little overweight, both with light hair.
The Peruvian beauty had her waist thinned and her eyes were ripped a little more. She also has shiny copper hair and a skin color very similar to the original, slightly toasted.
Argentine and Venezuelan
The Argentine model was much skinnier, paler and with brown hair, while the Venezuelan model, a country known for being the mecca of beauty queens, proposed a fuller woman with beautiful long wavy black hair … And with the bigger breasts of the spectrum!
What happened in the USA? The woman lost quite a lot of weight, looks slim and without a tummy. Narrow waist, pronounced hips on well-formed legs, and straight brown hair with a parting in the middle.
Do you consider yourself beautiful within your country? Perhaps your beauty follows the canons of another nation and you don't know it! What matters, and is relevant, is that no woman is more beautiful than another because of her measurements … As they say over there: "For tastes the colors".
