Beauty is not just in the eye of the beholder – it varies based on geographical location and local culture. There are countries in which curly hair is considered to be the most beautiful in some countries while in others, straight hair is the ideal. Some places treasure blondes while others love brunettes. And these are just a couple of the many factors that go into our ideal standards of beauty.

Esther Honig, a journalist, used the website Fiverr to hire freelance photoshop artists around the world. She sent each the same picture and gave each the same simple instructions: “Make me beautiful”.

She received photoshopped pictures of herself from 25 different countries. “Seeing some jobs for the first time made me shriek… Other times images, like the one from Morocco, took my breath away because they were far more insightful than I could have expected,” says Honig.

The results are quite interesting. We invite you to have a look.
