Coming in at number one on the list for most attractive nationality is Indian! There's no denying Indian women and men are beautiful, especially in their traditional clothing and makeup. The beauty standards in India include large eyes, long dark hair and large red lips.

2. USA

Coming in second on the list is USA! To be fair, the known 'beauty standards' of America tend to be leaning on the thin, pale, young and blue-eyed - which as we know is an unfair standard and people coming in all different sizes and shapes of beauty. But regardless, USA came second on the list!

3. Sweden

Coming third on the list is Sweden! The 'stereotype' of beautiful people in Sweden tends to be tall, slim, blonde hair and blue eyes - this is probably what most people think of when they think of Scandinavian beauty, anyway. Blonde is particularly favored for the beauty standards of women.

4. Japan

Coming fourth on the list is the beautiful people of Japan! The beauty standards of Japan are so well known that a lot of people in other countries aim for an 'Asian beauty routine' to get that famous flawless skin. The beauty appeal of people in Japan - especially women - leans towards the slim, petite, dark hair and porcelain skin.

5. Canada

Coming fifth on the list is the people of Canada! Canada doesn't particularly have one 'standard' of beauty due to the sheer number of different looks and nationalities in its population - but of course that's true of anywhere! If we're talking about unfair stereotypes though, you might go for the 'lumberjack look'!

6. Brazil

image source: reddit.com
Coming in sixth on the list is the people of Brazil. The interesting thing about the accepted 'beauty standards' in Brazil is it's a bit of a mix/variety from other nationalities. You might find larger curves, dark hair, small noses and 'European features' while having tanned skin, all accepted beauty standards!

7. France

image source: reddit.com
Seventh on the list is France! Now France is known for being a very fashionable place, so you'd expect the beauty standards of this country to put a lot of focus on looking good. But a lot of the beauty appeal from France comes from people finding their own beauty, and owning it - effortlessly!

8. Italy

image source: reddit.com
Eight on the list is Italy! Italian beauty standards, at least for women, seems to focus on more 'natural' features rather than beauty that comes from any surgery or injections. a 'Roman nose', long dark hair and soft lips are all considered beautiful, while for men it can be dark hair and sharp cheekbones.

9. Ukraine

image source: reddit.com
Ninth on the list is Ukraine. There is a pressured beauty standard on Ukrainian women to be slim with paler skin and dark features, though of course Ukrainians can still have deeper skin tones. For men, it can be the more 'bearded manly' look, as they seem to like that protective aura around a man!

10. Denmark

image source: reddit.com
Tenth on the list of most attractive nationalities comes Denmark. Denmark, like other Scandinavian countries, has a focus on blonde hair, slim body and light-colored eyes. The other thing about Scandinavian beauty standards is that they also place focus on feeling good on the inside, to look your best on the outside!

11. Poland

image source: pinterest.com
Eleventh on the beauty ranking is Poland!  This beauty standard is based on the idea of what a proper 'Slavic' woman should look like - so pretty face, perfect makeup, slim body and always looking stylish. For men, it's similar in that being stylish and slim is the preferred look.

12. United Kingdom

image source: reddit.com
Coming twelfth on the list is the United Kingdom! People of the UK come in all shapes and sizes - like the rest of the world, of course. But one beauty standard for women in particular in the UK is a very slim physique, long slim legs and a flat stomach. Nothing like the pressure of beauty standards, is there!

13. Germany

image source: reddit.com
Thirteenth on the list is Germany! The beauty standards in Germany aren't very particular - they actually seem to put more focus on clothes and high-quality style than having a particular height, weight or hair color preference. For men, it can be the classic 'tall with beard'.

14. Spain

image source: reddit.com
Fourteenth on the list is Spain, which holds a lot of the same beauty standards as many other European countries - which is that slim, tall, dark eyes and hair and lighter complexions seem to be the go-to. For men, it can be tall with big eyes and a slender physique.

15. Mexico

image source: reddit.com
Fifteenth on the list is Mexico! In Mexico, the 'preferred' beauty standard for women can be long black/dark hair, as well as an olive or tan skin tone that isn't too pale. Dark eyes seem to be the preference, and while there's this idea that 'big butts' are preferred, that's not necessarily true!

16. China
