There are seven fundamental types of catastrophes. Beauty is not one of them.
this is a question that is often the topic of beauty blogs. and for fear of seeming shallow, the perspective usually leans in the direction of what makes one beautiful on the inside. while I get the significance, it kinda makes me laugh, okay, smirk a bit, on the inside.
I just find it odd that blogs focused on swatching lipstick shades, eyeshadow palettes, and dissecting the intricate steady-handedness involved in perfecting a winged-liner would do a complete 180 when it comes to actually defining beauty. I think it goes without saying, physical beauty isn’t everything. breathtaking imagery can be utterly destroyed by the details or lack thereof. so if your heart is ugly, your manners non-existent, and you have zero sense of respect, compassion, authenticity or kindness about you, well, you’re kinda ugly. simply put. true beauty isn’t shallow. it’s a package. an ensemble. a visual orchestration if you will. all things must come together for a single thing to be truly beautiful. I get that & I think you do too. so it’s OK to define beauty as just that – beauty. because it’d simply be unattractive to not know the difference. 🙂
so now that THAT’S outta’ the way. here’s how I really define beauty.
