This work is an ethnographic account examining the interconnections between the production of normative femininity, the consumption of the products and narratives of the global beauty industry, and the processes of Europeanization and globalization, in the context of urban Greece. In the process of consuming cosmetic products and services offered at sites, such as a multinational direct-sales cosmetic company, and neighborhood day beauty spas, Greek urban women become members of an imagined transnational feminine aesthetic community and are actively implicated in the transnational politics of femininity, whiteness, class, and sexuality. The normalization of the "unruly Mediterranean" female body involves Greek women consumers in the ongoing reproduction and refiguring of configurations of the idea of Europe, the Mediterranean, tradition, and modernity
