What defines beauty?

A lot of people have many different views of beauty. From Physical to Mental to Spiritual and everywhere in between.

To me:

I define beauty in the mental AND physical sense.

Beauty is being of sound mind, Being confident in yourself (m+p) and showing love to everyone.

“Beauty does not hate, it is clean, it speaks and acts with love.”

I wanted to see how other women thought, to see if we all think the same way, and to understand “the female state of mind” (haha). So I chose girls between the ages of 15-25 from different backgrounds with very different personalities from all over Australia (and New Zealand) and I asked them these same three questions:

 

What is a celebrity style you love?
What is your definition of “beauty”?
Is there anything you’d change about yourself?

(↑if you could click your fingers and it’d happen↑)

Here are their answers;

Style-

  1. n/a                 2. ? Zooey Deschanel               3. ? Ashley Tisdale / Jennifer Lawrence

4. Kylie/Kendall Jenner / Rihanna / Kayne

 

5. Emma Stone / Emma Watson / Zoella

6. Alissa White-Gluz                     7. Tori Kelly                   8. Jennifer Aniston

9. ? Ali Krieger                 10. Demi Lovato / CL

Definition-

Nearly everyone had more then one answer so I divided their points and added them up.

Heart/ Personality             50%
Knowledge/Wisdom           16%
Confidence                                14%
Physical                                      9%
Strength                                     6%
Cleanliness                                 5%

I got answers like this:

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.”
― Kahlil Gibran

..beauty is anything or anyone that brings you happiness..

” If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely”
-Roald Dahl

Society’s changing constantly and I think if you can be real with where you’re at, and not be controlled by the worlds view.

“Don’t look for society to give you permission to be yourself”
-Steve Maraboli

..Beauty is being the best possible version of yourself inside and out..

At the end of the day 90% of women participating in the survey said beauty comes from within.

Change-

Percentage of the girls surveyed said;

90%  there was things about themselves they’d like to change.


50%  that their changes they want to make were physical.
20% of that 50 said it was something completed with a type of surgery.

20% they wanted a mental change / self esteem.
20% didn’t want to share what they want to change.


 

A lot of us say that it’s the heart that matters, and yet there are still physical features that we would love to change. Before I finish up I would love to thank all the girls who participated in this survey and say one last thing to all reading this.

You are beautiful. No matter what your hair, eye or skin colour is.

You are beautiful. No matter what your Physical, mental or spiritual state it.

You are beautiful. No matter what anyone else says.

YOU ARE… YOU

 

 

Stay Strong.
