To be honest, it is impossible to achieve unreal and ever-changing beauty trends in our society. And many of us have already given up after trying to pull ourselves out, draw or make contours. It is not surprising that this problem is not timeless. Some beauty trends of the Middle Ages and recent past are hard to think of as something that can actually be considered colorful or entertaining.
Beauty trends are really just horrible things in modern times when people think they are generally hot. Of course, doing makeup is not easy, but at least a thousand times better than grabbing your legs or shaving your hairline back more! In this article, we have compiled a list of perhaps the strangest historical beauty trends. Let's check-
The Greeks certainly liked uni brows!
Idea ‘Power brow’ It was completely different for the Greeks. In ancient times, Greek women with uni brows were considered intellectual and pure in society. In fact, women without women naturally took a bold look by drawing themselves using a call.
Is calf better than abs?
In the modern world, women's legs are really respected, but dating back to the Middle Ages and the 18th century was male calf. Indeed, men could wear stockings to show off their muscular chiseled calves. Some went further and used calves to make the calf look more muscular! King Henry VIII was famous for calf. I wonder if it is natural or padded!
Beauty patches have been considered luxurious
Going back to the 18th century, the trend of women wearing makeup began. They also began to wear beauty patches-small pieces of cloth applied to the face. This beauty patch came in many shapes and sizes, the most noticeable being stars, squares and circles. In addition, the placement of these cosmetic patches has a special meaning. For example, applying a cosmetic patch on the right cheek meant that the woman in question was married, and the patch near the mouth meant that the woman was excited!
Short teeth of the Renaissance
The essential characteristics of the beauty of the Renaissance period are well known, and more than 30 characteristics have been defined as beauty! Some of them were very similar to modern standards, such as long legs, narrow waist, wide hips. However, what may surprise some of you is that at that time the short teeth were considered beautiful.
Painted legs during World War II
During World War II, a huge lack of nylon made women unable to afford pantyhose. But as a result of wearing stockings, the tanned legs were considered important, so the demand for paint products increased tremendously to look nylon. During the time various advertisements focused on how you can not distinguish between a leg covered with a hose and a leg just painted! But not everyone has access to this paint, so quite a few women will actually apply gravy and get a nylon look!
“Divorce Corsets” were quite in demand.
Corsets are considered one of the most innovative examples of allowing body modifications because they allow the waist to look narrow as you lift your chest. Corsets were worn by women in various styles from the 16th to the 19th centuries. In fact, some varieties are so tight that breathing is difficult! But in the 19th century there was a new beauty trend, in which the chest was separated. And instead of the usual high cleavage that was previously prevalent, the women now wanted to have a clear gap between their chests. This introduced a new kind of corset on the market. "Divorced corset"It was named because it separated the breast and caused a pronounced division.
