In its latest installment, YouTube dating and travel series Dating Beyond Borders looks at female beauty standards across countries to show how vastly they vary and asking: ‘how far do we go to look beautiful?’ The video displays informative stats about cosmetic procedures in different countries.
Each of the models is chosen as an embodiment of their country’s beauty standards.
Starting in the UK, a young tanned brunette poses in a simple white tank top and jeans with a full face of make-up.
The American standard is said to be focused on ‘larger assets’ thanks to celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and the Kardashian family.
The standard for Brazilian women is ‘smaller breasts and a round bottom’.
In Jamaica, however, a woman with a ‘healthy body’ is the most sought after.
French women are ‘considered the most underweight in Europe’.
A model in a sparkling outfit with plenty of jewelry represents India, where skin bleaching is popular.
Venezuala is the country that has produced the most winners of international beauty pageants.
The Chinese model shows off the ‘melon seed face’ – an oval shape with a pointed chin – that is considered the height of beauty in the country.
For both women and men in Iran, nose jobs are considered a status symbol.
