Beauty is a characteristic of a person, place, object or idea that provides a perceptual experience of pleasure, meaning or satisfaction. Collins English Dictionary says beauty is the combination of all the qualities of a person or thing that delight the senses and please the mind. Dated from the ancient time, beauty has been a dominant theme in western art, in which an “ideal beauty” is a person who is admired, or possesses features widely attributed to beauty in a particular culture.
The characterization of a person as “beautiful”, is often based on some combination of inner beauty, which includes psychological factors such as personality, intelligence, grace, charm and elegance, and outer beauty, which includes physical factors, such as health, youthfulness, symmetry, averageness, and complexion. Based on these, some focus on the outside appearance of people. In contrast, some hold the point of view that beauty is the purity of heart. If you are kind-hearted, you are beautiful. It seems that what we find beautiful is a reflection of our personality and individuality. However, the surprising thing is that despite the common saying that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, people may come to roughly the same conclusions of what is beauty. It is widely accepted that there are common definitions to what the definition of beauty is, which is much determined by society as a form of survival of the fittest.
