How do you define beauty? Some define beauty by the perfect placement of features, by their symmetry. In fact, there is something called the Fibonacci Sequence that says just this. If you've heard of the Fibonacci Sequence you are probably either a) very interested in numbers and most likely a mathematician or b) you've (like me) read or watched The Davinci Code. I don't want to talk about it too much but it has been used throughout history in such works as the David and the Mona Lisa. Essentially, people prefer symmetrical faces, even babies do. This is subconscious and there isn't anything that can be done about that.
To some people, beauty is defined by by perfect looking features. Typically on a woman's face, these so-called perfect features are high cheekbones, full lips, big, wide set eyes, clear skin, long eyelashes, and shiny hair. Some of these things we can more or less achieve naturally with proper nutrition, proper treatment of our skin, getting enough sleep, and exercise. The rest of these things we either got or we didn't and the only one to achieve them (or look like it) is by using make-up or getting plastic surgery.
Other people will decide some people are beautiful while other people might say those same people aren't beautiful. I remember listening to a radio program on the CBC and after talking about a perfect scientific example of a man who is beautiful I had to laugh. Why? Because the example this person gave was Will Smith. Now some of you reading this might argue that he is very attractive but when I think of him I think of that skinny guy from when I used to watch The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Any one agree with me there?
There is a point to all of this. I personally believe that everyone has at least one beautiful feature that they can play up to their full advantage. You might have one of those lovely features I mentioned earlier. You might even be a certain type such as exotic (Sophia Loren), gamine (Audrey Hepburn), bombshell (Marilyn Monroe). The list goes on and on. The important thing is to find out what makes you unique and play it up. Have fun. Be creative. Don't be content to just blend in and be "okay". Try to find something, anything about the way you look that you love and show it off.
