Seeing How Women’s Beauty Standards Have Changed In 3,000 Years Is Just Amazing. WOW!

The way people see beauty has changed throughout centuries, influenced by the culture of each historic period.
This video shows us how female beauty standards have mutated over the years, exploring the different popular canons of beauty from the ancient Egypt to the current postmodern era.

Movies, magazines and media force us to believe that a woman should look a certain way to be pretty, but personally we believe that there shouldn’t be an ideal aesthetic type in the first place, and that every woman should be proud of herself and her body, regardless of how beauty is seen in the times she lives.
