Defining beauty is difficult, if not impossible. Beauty has a different meaning for each and every one of us.
Beauty: Who is beautiful?
Blonde or brunette, fat or thin, tall or short? It is not easy to say who is beautiful. As it is known, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Who is beautiful and what a beautiful person is meant to look like is largely determined by the society.
Nowadays, beauty standards are defined by the appearance of television stars and models. Whoever looks like these people is considered beautiful.
- Being thin is often a prerequisite for beauty.
- Physical fitness also belongs to beauty criteria
- Symmetrical faces and bodies are considered beautiful.
- Flawless, smooth and slightly tanned skin are all attributes that make a woman more attractive.
In humans, beauty is definitely linked to the ability of genetic reproduction. A beautiful person has features that tell our natural instincts that a person is healthy and capable of reproduction.

Why do we want to be beautiful?
Beautiful people have a higher social status. Because of their beauty, beautiful people are considered more trustworthy, more intelligent and more likable. It is normal to enjoy the company of beautiful people.
Beauty means being attractive. Beautiful people have not got many problems when it comes to picking a partner.
Beauty: Can anyone make themselves beautiful or is it God-given?
Some people are lucky and inherit a perfect body and a beautiful face. However, the majority of people battle with more or less big flaws. Beauty or at least outer, physical appearance is, however, achievable. Think of the photos taken of celebrities in their jogging attire without make-up. Most of the time they are difficult to recognise. Therefore if you use the right tricks (make-up, clothing) you can also make a considerable difference to your appearance and attractiveness.
