Beauty vlogger Jackie Aina is taking us around the world on her face. At least that's the aim of her latest video, "The Worldwide Standard of Beauty."

Aina asked her followers to tell her about their ethnicity, culture and what the ideal standard of beauty is where they're from. She then used that information along with a bit of research to recreate makeup looks from six different countries: Australia, United Arab Emirates, Nigeria, France, South Korea and the U.S.

The looks aren't as drastically different as you might expect, but it was refreshing to read the comments from her followers about beauty standards in other countries. While some of the responses Aina received touched on actual makeup application, the majority discussed skin color and how fairer or darker hues play into standards of beauty.

One commenter from Australia wrote, "...the culture I live in values tanned skin, being pale is not seen as beautiful..." On the other hand, an Indonesian commenter said, "In Southeast Asia having dark skin is considered unattractive. So whitening products are very popular there."

Check out the video and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
