Mariam Sanchez, 17, gets her makeup done before a fashion show in which she will model at the Aguasal beach club . The beach club hosts several fashion shows each year and holds its own beauty pageant. Fashion and looking good are top priorities in Venezuela, where there is a general culture of beauty. It is a culture that permeates all walks of life and covers the country like a blanket. Girls enter beauty pageants as toddlers and young women and men get plastic surgery as teens. Venezuela is a country where thongs and short skirts are the norm, cleavage awaits around every corner and metrosexual men abound.
