The Art of Beauty

Beauty comes in many shapes and forms and has been an integral part of our lives since the beginning of time but how does one defines what beauty really is? You may have heard the popular saying like “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” or “beauty is skin deep.” 
Some may define beauty as symmetry, proportion, and perfection. A beauty mask based on the Golden Ratio was developed to unveil the math behind the beauty. According to scientific studies, we tend to be more attracted to faces and bodies that are proportioned because they appear to be healthier. Individuals with physical beauty are more likely to be successful; thus making them more desirable. Others believe beauty is based on perception.  I would personally agree with the latter. There is no absolute beauty because it is subjective to our personal taste.
While men often see beauty as something to be desired, women associate beauty with self-gratification. When we feel good about ourselves, we get this happy chemical reaction radiating throughout our body. The quest for beauty doesn’t necessarily make a person vain or superficial. What makes a person vain is his or her excessive attitude toward self-pride and appearance.
I am tremendously guilty of self-gratification. I have a tendency to indulge on the things that I enjoy. Perhaps it’s my way of filling the void and be happy on my own. I wasn’t always this way. There was a time I put everyone else before me and lost touch with myself.
I think of beauty as an art. Beauty is relative to the way we express ourselves such as our feelings, thoughts, behaviours, how we carry ourselves, how we treat ourselves and others, our personal style, etc. Beauty is something we can manipulate and mold into whatever form we desire. The art of beauty isn’t about creating perfection but harmony and balance both internally and externally. When I was a young girl, I’ve always had a love for art. I was pretty good actually. My art instructors have always seen a potential in me. I’ve recently rekindle with my love for art through a different medium...Makeup!
It all started about a year ago, when I was introduced the infamous 120 eyeshadow palette. Ever since then, I was determined to master this art. Although, many younger and more talented people are way ahead of me, I am determined to uncover my own creativity and the possibilities.
