History of looksmaxing
History of looksmaxxing is a topic far and wide seen all over the world.
Ancient Egypt :
It is well believed through archaeological findings that both genders of the ancient Egyptians paid a great deal of attention to their appearances
Their primary looksmaxxes were makeup Maxxing and also fashion Maxxing
Some of the common cosmetics in Ancient Egypt included: Malachite, a copper ore, which provided the green eye makeup color so greatly favored at the time. Kohl, used to draw thick, distinctive black lines, giving an almond shape to the eyes. Red ochre, which was used as rouge or lip color.
These include kilts, skirts, cloaks, shawls, and some dresses. Men might wear aprons — pieces of cloth attached to a belt or band around the waist. Kilts and skirts might be so short that they covered just the hips, or long enough to run from chest to ankles.
It has forever been a long time tradition of looksmaxxing and taking pride in our looks for sex, since that is basically the only thing humans are designed for
Mayan Era :
Though by modern looksmaxxing standards this is rather ludicrous, this was a looksmax for their beauty standards none the less. And infact a primitive form of hardmaxxing
Artificial cranial deformation or modification, head flattening, or head binding is a form of body alteration in which the skull of a human being is deformed intentionally. It is done by distorting the normal growth of a child's skull by applying force. Flat shapes, elongated ones (produced by binding between two pieces of wood), rounded ones (binding in cloth), and conical ones are among those chosen or valued in various cultures. Typically, the shape alteration is carried out on an infant, as the skull is most pliable at this time. In a typical case, headbinding begins approximately a month after birth and continues for about six months.
Maya men and women used body paint in patterns and solid colors. Unmarried men painted themselves black, priests used blue and men and women both favored red. Warriors wore bands of alternating red and black paint. Tattoos were popular, but the process of getting tattooed was painful and often caused infection.
There was a lot of looksmaxxing for the ancient tribes through mainly tattoo Maxxing and hard Maxxing and style Maxxing primarily but it was still a thing even back then
Roman Era :
The ideal Roman was defined as tall (around 5'7”), muscled and toned with long strong legs and a tanned tone of skin (some men used make-up for face-whitening and they were believed to be immoral). The ideal face was high and broad forehead and wide eyes, a strong nose, a symmetric shape and a powerful jaw.
A lot of tanning and fashion Maxxing occurred in the roman era, with a lot of care for looks too with these ideal beauty standards a lot of men strive after it
Medieval Era :
Males- Long hair parted down the middle. Long, muscular legs and round buttocks, as well as a well groomed mustache or beard. Men who were slim were also considered to look “angelic” and such.
On top of this in the medieval times a lot of them would status max by being close to the King, being a Knight, religious man etc. Anything at all to boost their status
Renaissance Period :
A classic male beauty would be youthful and athletic, have a straight Romanesque nose and a strong chin almost certainly covered by a beard if they were old enough to grow one. ... Most men's hair was bobbed but the length of ones hair was chosen by individual taste.
And besides this a lot more fashion was in the mainstream. Making fashion become a real looksmax here suggesting wealth and also style and culture
Men's clothing began with accentuating the shoulders and chest. They wore tunics and doublets reaching the knee, belted at the waist and stuffed in the chest and upper sleeves. Usually jerkins, often fur-lined, were worn over. Flat, wide hats were worn. ... Men wore coats and outfits that gave the silhouette a square look.
Victorian Period :
Well groomed, Upper class gentleman. Well dressed, good facial hair, good hair, tall of course and well mannered and upper class was the ideal 19th century man
Early 20th Century :
Young men preferred trimmed mustaches and short hair, while only older gentlemen sported beards in the early 1900s and 1910s. Three-piece suits were common, along with narrow jackets and starched collars. After the onset of World War I, men commonly posed for photographs in military uniforms.
Primitive versions of army Maxxing became a thing due to the outbreak of the cold War. This allowed a lot of lean maxxing, athletics maxing, and also army max in general to take over resulting in the outbreak of a new athletic, young, lean and army maxxed / low inhib beauty standards of men
However after the war in the 20s They wore long overcoats and fur (just like women), and relied on custom slim-fitted suits. As for personal flair, that came in the form of hats and accessories. The ideal male physique of the time was slender – all the better for showing up on camera. A lot of lean maxxing and status Maxxing and wealth Maxxing occurred throughout the 20s
The 1930s image of male beauty is an athletic body with good posture, broad shoulders, narrow hips, and strong muscles. The famous Clark Gable whiskers became the peak of fashion.
A little bit of an Intro to smv Maxxing with muscular, tall and facial haired yet well groomed dapper men which leads to the outbreak of ww2
The principal image of a man during WWII was severe, masculine, dressed 'by the book,' and cleanly shaved, as was required by wartime. Muscles and leaness with dapper haircuts and smart military dress once again became the ideal looks for men, like 1910s and 1930s combined
The '50s were signified by the rockabilly style and Elvis Presley, tall and handsome, who sighed into the mic and danced his famous jig. The most popular hairstyle was a quiff above the forehead. A sort of emergence of the "bad boy" aka low inhib, lean male, dark coloring. Elvis basically.
Starting off with a new decade. At that time, Alain Delon was the symbol of male beauty. A tanned and athletic young man with boyish features and a sensual look of dreamy blue eyes was considered the perfect male. A basically evolved version of 1940s + 50s combined just a lot less old fashioned with views on appropriate behaviour so a lot more secualised society (this is where hyoergsmy really starts to kick in)
However The end of the decade was signified by hippies and psychedelic rock. Jim Morrison, the front man of The Doors, was perfectly charming with his unique charisma and deep lyrics. Just one look at him and girls felt wild sexual ecstasy and young men went for outrageous deeds. Basically ending the era of tanned athletic men. Lean, skinny, long haired hippy maxxers were all the style near the early 70s.
Luckily during the 70s while hippies conquer the world and men are not discernible from women, Arnold Schwarzenegger becomes sevenfold Mr. Olympia. Ladies go crazy; gentlemen get jealous, give a standing ovation, and go to do some training. This is the begging of the rtt era of looksmaxxing. Steroids, tattoos and tanning. Basically the majority of men were now going to the gyn and working out due to 1970s classic body builders
Men still take great pride in athelete Maxxing, the idea of jocks come around here. Sporty, atbeteic, muscular, tanned, and cool. This is still somewhat prominant looksmaxes completed by men in 2021
The '90s was the era of grunge rock music that gave birth to a new generation of people who didn't care what they wore and how they looked. Just look at Kurt Cobain, the star of Nirvana! His careless attitude, however, didn't stop him from being really handsome and driving thousands of fans crazy.
This is mainly due to the fact of celibacy rising at this point. More depressed males, more depressive lifestyle. The doomer period it should be called. Men let themselves go. There is still a large population size of looksmaxxer who are doomer in 2021 however
The era of metrosexuality. David Beckham becomes the perfect man, a professional soccer player having all the attributes of an alpha male - the six-pack, professional haircut, and expensive clothes.
The hipster movement is taking the world by storm. Easy carelessness, beards, vintage clothes, slender or athletic shape, checkers or stripes, eyeglasses, tattoos, and a jaunty look - and here you go, your perfect male is ready. Especially if it's Ryan Gosling.
The ideal man is tall, muscular, has pretty features, Nt fashion, social succeeding, athletic, and is 7/10 minimum.
