Beauty – The Concept
Beauty is the subjective idea of beauty. It is the aesthetic sense or sensual desire in a particular object or persons, which causes them to be admired and loved. Beauty is considered to be any pleasant attribute of things that makes those objects aesthetically pleasurable to see. These objects may include sunsets, landscapes, beautiful humans and creative works of art.
The word beauty has various shades and hence, beauty varies from person to person. A highly attractive face with oval eyes and a symmetrical jaw line may be termed as beautiful. On the other hand, a very unattractive face where the nose is bony and the forehead has a heavy underline may not be considered beautiful. Beauty is the subjective idea, which is regarded to be important for a person, in order to make him happy in his hectic life. According to some philosophers, beauty is the only thing desirable in life while others believe in the necessity and happiness of beauty in one’s life.
Beauty includes different aspects such as the appearance of the face, the hair, the skin tone and the body structure. Men prefer women with faces that are attractive, with symmetrical jaw lines, straight and well-defined cheekbones, a round and well-balanced body and an even hair line. Women, on the other hand, usually prefer men with healthy, strong and well-developed bodies. For both genders, beauty can also be considered to be related to hair texture, skin tone and the hair style.
