What Is Beauty?: 3 Contemporary Women Transformed into Historical Figures of the Same Ethnicity

How does your heritage influence your sense of beauty? How does your heritage influence your look? To explore these questions, BuzzFeed created a video where they used makeup and jewelry to turn three women into historical figures, inspired by their individual ethnicities. The women are Indian, Irish-English-Scottish, and Chinese, respectively.

To begin, the women are shown and asked to discuss images of historically beautiful women from traditional India, Elizabethan England, and the Tang Dynasty in China. Then the makeovers begin. Afterwards, when the transformations are revealed, the women are shocked by their new looks, but also admire them greatly.

So, how does your heritage influence your sense of beauty? How does your heritage influence your look?
