[video] Behind Brazil’s Extreme Beauty Addiction

I would of liked to see a more balanced view with black women from Brazil speaking about the pressures of being dark skinned in a society that is majority black people but are rarely represented in the standard of beauty.

In the first episode, our favourite tattoo-covered alien princess discovers more about the pressures to have the ‘perfect body’ and long hair. From an all-female tattoo studio to a plastic surgeon’s office, Grace Neutral meets a range of young women to find out about how perceptions of femininity and identity are changing in Brazil.
