It is obvious that the two countries’ concept of beauty is different due to the cultures’ varying standards of beauty. Just flip through magazines from the two countries and from the get-go you can point out each cultures’ beauty standards. They both value thinness as a beauty standard. However, Americans glorify the tan, fit, and smoky eye look. Koreans go for the petite, glowing, minimal makeup look.
