The transition of the standard of the beauty


As the times change, the most popular beauty change. In the figures of the beauty of the late Chosun Dynasty, we find a young woman of a little concave middle face with small eyes without double eyelid, a small nose and mouth. Our ancestors seem to have considered beautiful a woman with an elegant, innocent and courteous look.

A contemporary beauty, however, is characterized by the active and vivid look with high cheekbone, big eyes with double eyelid, a high nose and a big mouth.
