    Confidence Secrets From 4 Women Pushing Back Against Beauty Standards

    Shutterstock / Prostock-studio. Beauty standards are engraved into girls from a young age. Our Barbies and dolls come perfectly packaged with their hair, makeup, and nails already done. Most of us played with those toys as we watched our mothers get dolled up for the day. Beauty seems fun and playful until we evolve into teenagers. Then, many of us feel the pressure to conform to trends and change our hair and makeup. The parts of ourselves we once deemed “just fine” have become our biggest insecurities. Our bodies, skin, and hair begin to change while comparison sets in. This, at times, creates a divide between women, mainly because we…

    Who’s Really To Blame For Society’s Ridiculous Beauty Standards? Men Or Women?

    Picture all the problematic, harmful trends that have come and gone in the last 30 years: waif-like figures and heroin chic in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, then, from the 2010s until now, the synthetic amalgamations of the waif-figure plus the “hard body” of the 1980s.

Developments in single-point perspective, draftsmanship and anatomy all influenced portraiture. And body ideals were changing from the gothic paragon, with narrow shoulders and big hips, to soft hourglasses, preferably complete with pale skin and golden curls. There are plenty of noblewomen in these pages — their stories are usually the best documented — but Burke makes an effort to talk about women of many kinds: domestic help, peasants, widows, courtesans and all manner of sex workers. (The names mentioned also function as a great source for anyone in…
