Beauty expectations and portrayals on social can make us forget what the everyday beautiful woman looks like.
Romanian portrait photographer Mihaela Noroc is on a journey to remind us of what real women look like daily and how beautiful they are while at it.
About a year ago, on her project called "The Atlas of Beauty," she took and posted pictures of women from 37 countries. Now, she is back with even more.
Although beauty standards vary from one part of the word to another, she captured the pure, unfiltered elegance and sincerity that is often absent in social media shoots.
"In the past two years, I traveled around the world and captured hundreds of portrait photography in diverse environments. My goal is to show that allure is in our differences, not in trends, beauty standards, money, or race.
Through my photography, I want to capture that feeling of warmth and serenity which is so specific to the most beautiful women in the world and comes to balance all the negativity we see in the media. I think people should be more aware of other cultures, and beauty can teach us to be more tolerant."
Let's travel the world with Noroc with these 25 pictures of beautiful women from different parts of the world.

One of the most beautiful things about these pictures is the eyes. They hold such a pure look like they are asking you to peer into their souls. Beauty is everywhere, and these prove it.
