The inhabitants of the Celestial Empire have their own idea of beauty. It is determined, firstly, by long-standing traditions and, secondly, by modern idols – idols of youth: singers, actors, models. In their understanding, only a girl with a certain height, volume, and even face shape can be considered attractive. What should they be?
While Europeans and Americans are trying by all means to give their skin a caramel tint, Chinese women are achieving the exact opposite effect. Snow-white skin in China is a symbol of aristocracy and an ideal of beauty, and quite achievable. To get the desired result, local girls use sun umbrellas, wide-brimmed hats, closed clothes, whitening masks and treatments in beauty salons. At the same time, the attitude towards extra hairs on the body is not so reverent here: a girl will be completely forgiven for their presence even under her armpits. fs.tonkosti.ru/sized/f550x700/d6/qi/d6qilf0tffkgkgw4cs8k8ko4g.jpg” media=”(max-width: 549px)”>
Oval face shape
Chinese women consider an oval-shaped face with a smooth chin line to be the standard. But here's the problem: for Asian peoples, a round face shape is much more characteristic. Well, the inhabitants of the Celestial Empire do not agree to put up with this natural injustice and in every possible way strive to get closer to the coveted oval. Cosmetology, plastic surgery or Photoshop help.
European women are amused by the habit of Chinese girls to round their eyes in photographs. But Chinese women just want their eyes to look bigger, so they try. The fact is that big eyes here are also considered one of the signs of beauty. A wide-open look, the right makeup and, again, Photoshop help to “enlarge” them. The last resort is plastic surgery.
Chinese women are naturally petite, but they really want to appear taller – the ideal of beauty in the country is considered to be a height of 165 cm. Moreover, the inhabitants of the Celestial Empire do not consider this a whim. It turns out that it is not so easy for owners (and owners) of short stature to get into not only the modeling business, but also a number of positions. The principle “the higher the height, the higher the position” is still valid in China. ru/sized/f550x700/0d/wh/0dwhkfked97socws0sgcgg0wc.jpg” media=”(max-width: 549px)”>

Here everything is exactly the opposite: the smaller, the better. A beauty in China is considered to be a very thin, “flat” girl with unremarkable forms, a kind of eternal teenager. And although Chinese women, like the whole world, sometimes try on all kinds of overlays with seductive roundness, they are not yet ready to make volume a new trend.
