Indian vs American Beauty Standards: Here's how different the two are!

What "beautiful" means in India is very different than what Americans think is picture perfect. Here are the major differences:

Beauty is subjective, isn’t it? If you take a Europe trip you’ll see how Europeans love natural faces with soft features. But if you go to Africa you’ll see how drastically different the definition of beauty is- thicker bodies, bigger lips and longer necks!

While everyone on the planet is obsessed with a certain definition of beauty, what we see on TV and movies is a vague definition. The way different cultures define beauty across the globe couldn’t be any more different. In an effort to explain the major differences, a YouTuber called Kaur Beauty gave her face a makeover- one side defined what “beautiful” means in India, and one according to American standards.

Here are the major differences she found in their standards of beauty:

Skin: 

While ‘Fair is Lovely’ here in India, Americans love tanned, golden dewy skin!

Eyebrows:

Indians prefer natural looking brows that are a bit on the thinner side, while thicker, fuller brows are loved in the states.

Makeup:

Dramatic eyes, Kajal and almond-shaped eyes are loved in India. While Americans go easy on the eye makeup, they bronze and contour the crap outta their faces (think Kim Kardashian).

Facial structure:

Indians love soft, round and feminine features while Americans die for the chiseled, androgynous look.

Lips:

Light, natural lips are incorporated in Indian beauty routine all over the country while Americans love over-lined, plump lips.
