Beauty standards change every year, Right now the pressures to be thin & wrinkle free with enhancements to their bodies seems to be the norm. However I have noticed some stars starting to have more of a normal weight & using less makeup by trying to go more natural that it can have a more positive affect on young impressionable girls to accept themselves as they are. I think using filters on cameras sets a high standard to try an achieve the person's face and body that realistically is impossible to achieve, We need to accept every flaw as a part of what sets us apart & makes us special in a unique way, I believe trying to use makeup & clothes to enhance beauty is fine if it is not overdone to hide who you really are. I am hoping being more natural & being a healthy weight will be the next beauty standard that will stick around...for all girls & women's sakes.

Fashions go through a cycle; if you keep clothing it will come beck into style eventually. Hair styles go in and out of fashion too. So do make-up colors. Even body shapes go in and out of fashion!

years ago pin up models were women with fit curvy bodies and they were considered to be beautiful and were adored by men but now days you have to look like a stick but have a big chest and rear end. Its pathetic really.

Beauty standards change according to whomever is deemed an entertainment icon of that decade. It seems that beauty standards are trendy and according to whatever gets the most attention, gets the most beauty and fashion accolades of our time. Take J-Lo, Beyoncé, for instance; never before have white women ever considered having a thick bottom as beauty but more as being "fat", now white women more than ever are getting Brazilian Butt Lifts to mimic the derrieres of J-Lo and Beyoncé. My point is, media, TV and the entertainment industry have a huge influence on what seems to be considered beauty, when they get attached to an entertainment icon they flood our vision with it all over the place. I say, set your own standard, dare to be you in a world of clones. You'll wind up being your best icon of beauty. Yourself :)

There are probably millions of young girls that have started life out being abused in so many different ways by family members or caretakers, even priests, not having loving kindness and affection shown to them on a daily basis. They then get bullied by peers, and teachers or other authority figures. They feel worthless and have no self esteem or self respect, so they continue to allow others to abuse them. So many turn to prostitution, drugs, alcohol or suicide trying to fill a hole in their heart that only God can fill. It is so different when people do things the way God intended and keep Him at the center of their marriage and family and pray together and attend worship together and eat meals together. When a Dad respects his wife then the daughter/s will wait for the soulmate God has chosen for them and they will be shown the same respect. The abusive cycle and generational curses will be broken forever. Relationships usually are not healthy and don't last when God is not allowed to be in charge. I am speaking from personal experience, not something I read in a magazine article.

I think one of the most common beauty standards that has changed over the years is the weight and body shape, specifically among women. If you look at photographs from the 70's and prior, women had more curves and looked (to me) more apt for child bearing. In this day and age, women of all ages are pressured to be super thin. Celebrities are even wearing "waist trainers" to sculpt their bodies. In my opinion, there is a huge connection between the fact there are less women having children, specifically during their prime child bearing years and more focused on their looks, career and success.
