Beauty is an emotion that comes with great pleasure, but it can also lead to a sense of wonder and even melancholy. A person who has a deep appreciation for beauty may feel more like an angel that fell from the sky rather than a regular human being.
Many people have different ideas of what is beautiful and it can vary from person to person. It can be anything from having fair skin and lustrous hair to a great figure, confidence, good health, or a determination to be a good person.
A good way to help you find out what is beauty for you is by making a list of the things that are important to you when it comes to judging something as beautiful. For example, what is the most beautiful thing about your eyes? Do you have long, thick eyelashes? Did your mom always use a lot of creams and lotions on your face to keep it smooth and flawless?
Once you have made your list, take a step back and think about how your idea of beauty came from. Maybe it was from watching your parents or grandparents define what was beautiful when you were young.
Some people say that beauty is a skin-deep attitude, but a recent Global Advisor survey found that physical attributes like facial appearance and body weight and shape aren’t the top things that women deem beautiful in men. Instead, what women consider to be the most beautiful traits for men are esteem, kindness, happiness, and dignity.
These traits aren’t necessarily things that you would find on a “perfect” person, but rather the characteristics that make a person unique and special. Some of these traits are actually considered aphrodisiacs, so they can have an attractive impact on your relationships with others.
Another important aspect of a person’s beauty is their character. A person who has a lot of character and is kind to other people is often considered to be beautiful in a spiritual sense, but it can be a very different thing for men to be beautiful in this way than women are.
There are also those who feel that beauty can be a double-edged sword, as it can reinforce and destabilize rigid conventions and restrictive behavior models (Brand 2000). But there are also those who are game changers, like Picasso or Munch.
The concept of beauty has been reconstructed or reappropriated in many ways over the past few centuries. It has appeared in social-justice oriented philosophy, as well as in art and aesthetics. This is a reflection of the fact that beauty is not simply a feeling but rather a moral and political impulse, which can be as powerful and enslaving or as liberating as you choose to interpret it.
