Beauty is often described as the aesthetic quality of certain objects, which makes these objects enjoyable to see. These objects may be humans, nature and works of artwork. Beauty, along with personal taste and art, is the primary topic of aesthetics, among the major fields of philosophy. In aesthetics, beauty consists of the proportion of parts to their distance, the visual effect of lines and colours, the effect of form on texture, the aesthetic quality of a work of art, and the emotions evoked by the sight of a work of art. The word ‘personality’ is often used in conjunction with aesthetic beauty, to indicate an emotional response towards beauty. Beauty in its broadest sense is generally defined as a subjective feeling attached to a particular kind of object, whether it is physically or mentally real.
According to the late Greek thinker, Aristotle, beauty is defined by the quality of a thing serving as the basis for determining its value, a quality akin to the aesthetic quality. He goes on to define beauty as the “fate of beauty” and adds that beauty is not only the product of physical beauty, but also of mental beauty, of the soul and the heart. According to the late Greek philosopher, Democritus, beauty is neither a physical nor a mental quality. Rather, beauty is the condition of the soul.
A number of factors contribute to the quality of beauty, and beauty varies from person to person, culture to culture. However, according to the British philosopher, John Locke, beauty is defined by the function of a face in human life. Beauty is defined by a face that is symmetrical in appearance and size with the complete and obvious complement to its contours, and a definite mental image of that face. Thus, symmetry of faces in women, for example, signifies beauty. Similarly, symmetry of the skin tone constitutes beauty. Similarly, the skin color and the hue of the eyes constitute beauty.
There are some factors that cannot be changed, like the eye color, hair color, skin color, height, weight, and skin type. Therefore, we have an image of beauty embedded in our minds by the people around us. The way of dressing one’s face has also given rise to a common notion of beauty in our society. Men generally tend to be more beauty conscious than women. Fashionable items like jewelry, makeup, watches, and perfumes are almost always worn by men, as they represent cleanliness, power, and an elegant appearance.
Even today, the idea of beauty is linked to money. If you have a beautiful face, regardless of its size or shape, you can be assured of earning a good salary. Therefore, maintaining a beautiful appearance is seen as essential in order to maintain a comfortable lifestyle. However, in the present day, most people take beauty for granted, and they fail to realize that a perfectly shaped, proportionate, and proportionate face is of utmost importance to their happiness.
In our present society, it seems that women are more concerned about their looks, beauty, and hair, than about their earning potential or their ambition to serve the world. This attitude towards beauty is unfortunate, as it hampers efforts to build up a true culture of beauty that the world has never before possessed. Instead of concentrating on appearances, women should be more concerned about issues of health, love, and life. A truly beautiful woman is one who is able to balance all these aspects with grace and charm. In short, if you have beautiful eyes, a shapely body, and a heart-shaped personality, then you have beauty in all aspects.
