Foreign women have different views on the Russian beauty
October 21, 2010
It seems generally agreed that Russian women are beautiful, but the fact that foreign women living in Russia actually think about their Russian counterparts?

"Four years ago, when I first arrived in Russia, I was literally stunned at how Russian women to watch - in a positive way. Russia women take care of themselves, but there is a big difference between young and mature women. The latter is much less care about their appearance : Many older women do not care about their skin and figure, and they dye your hair in weird colors. It's Italy, it's the opposite: women over 40 look much more tidy than young women.
What I do not understand why women are not wax their upper lip. Another strange thing is that some of my Russian friends to wash your hair every day, claiming that this is the right thing to do. But this is wrong and even harmful for your hair! Then, many Russian women have a weakness for heavy foundation and powder, which makes their faces look like masks. Russian women also are using too much perfume, but we have this problem in Italy, too.
At the same time, Moscow is a haven for arms! Now I can not live without Moscow manicure - they are much better than in Italy. Maybe it's because of the climate: cold and muddy in Moscow for most of the year, so that your hands are in need of constant care. The only thing I can not understand is the popularity of fake nails. How do you clean them? And how do you do any work with their hands in general? "

"There are two extremes among Russian women: some put all their energy into education and their own development and have little interest in their appearance, while others spend too much on their appearance, and they do it well enough on it.
Russian is very knowledgeable in all things, cosmetics, makeup and skin care. For the average Israeli woman, just put some moisturizer on your face in the morning, while a Russian woman will use the full range of cosmetic products, including regular masks, peeling creams and salon treatments. Russian women are also starting to use anti-aging creams at an early age, which is an advantage. In addition, they are more responsible about their diets.
At the same time, many women wear heavy makeup in the evening to morning, as if they were going to beat him. I think that it is not necessary. I would recommend them to temper their zeal somewhat. "
Patricia Robel, 32, German economist:
"I came to Russia eight years ago, and my first impression was that there is a competition going on here over men. Most women, therefore, looked very well groomed me, elegantly dressed (though sometimes too challenging), with stylish hair, but too much makeup . The latter, I think, was their main drawback. These days, however, Russian women do not look much different from their European counterparts. Although, sometimes I'm surprised to see women dressed in miniskirts and high heels when it freezing - 20 degrees outside.
What I love about Russian women is their ability to highlight their strengths, and even their fake nails look good. But the evening make-up in the morning is annoying - it looks out of place. Russian women also have a weakness for sweet spirits, which are annoying. In other words, I would recommend that Russian women use makeup more sparingly, in his desire to seduce someone. Men, after all, appreciate the natural look. "
Dora Kiralihidi, 34, Hungarian, business director for LeoBurnett:
"Russian women are very beautiful and look well groomed. I can always tell a Russian woman abroad: They always take care of their makeup and clothes, even when they are going to the beach. The natural look and minimalist makeup is not in vogue here. At the same time, Russian women to use heavy cream foundation on their faces, especially in the winter to protect their skin from the cold and icy wind.
Makeup and beauty services are very expensive, and I'm not sure that women with average incomes can afford to completely stuff. So I suspect that many-colored hair and do beauty treatments at home.
I also noticed that Russian women love all natural, and almost everyone has a recipe for cream home of her grandmother. And those who can afford the beauty there almost every day. Meanwhile, there are very few classic spa salons in Russia, and Bath, it seems the only alternative.
It is easy to see that the Russian use too much perfume with a very bright, strong flavors and refreshes them for the day. You can feel, even at a distance! This is too much for my taste. "
And the verdict?
Thus, the verdict is that Russian women wear makeup that is too bright and heavy, they use strong perfumes, manicure love and never leave the beauty salons. But is it really so bad? Perhaps it is only elements of the mysterious Russian soul? What do you think?
