Latvian photographer Evija Laivina features these products in a haunting, award-winning photo series, “Beauty Warriors.” The project, which we first spotted on Co.Design, underscores the pressure women feel to achieve society’s idea of what it means to be “beautiful.”
“To be successful, you must be perfect and look perfect — these are our society’s rules, which we all follow without even realising how ridiculous the standards are,” Laivina wrote about the series on her website.
Check out 11 photos from “Beauty Warriors” below.
