7. Tang dynasty – the lover of (big) cheeks
In ancient China, during the rule of the Tang Dynasty (618-907 CE), women having curvier features such as round faces or big cheeks and wider foreheads were considered more attractive and beautiful. Well, it won’t be wrong to call the Tang Dynasty the lover of big cheeks!
8. Eyelashes were a big no-no during the renaissance
During the Middle Ages and all the way up to the Renaissance, plucking of hair did not just stop at the forehead for European women. In fact, even eyelashes were removed, as having eyelashes indicated oversexuality! Thus, women from wealthy families would often get rid of their eyelashes completely, which to be honest, sounds too painful to even think about.
