The first aspect we notice when we encounter a beautiful person is the awareness that we are in the presence of someone uniquely interesting – if only visually. Beauty is subjective and depends upon the beholder, his or her interpretations, presuppositions and aesthetic theories. Beauty is dependent on the presentation of certain elements that one selects and that he or she thinks are worthy of further inspection because beauty merits closer scrutiny. After all, it is an integral matrix, a richness of many physical components that must come together in a harmonious balance to delight us. When we come across beauty we endlessly try to comprehend it. Beauty is loaded with reflective associations.
Beauty has many facets and functions. It carries with it many potentialities to enjoy it, to love it and to try to imitate it. After seeing natural beauty, our own good looks which are the result of endless efforts, seem scarcely adequate.
People value their beauty currency – it is as good as gold. The situation in real life is that it is better to be beautiful than repulsive looking even though there is a lot more to a human’s story than just the beauty associated with their image. Some women no matter how hard they try, they will never have the experience of being incredibly beautiful, and it cannot be easy or satisfying coming to grips with the truth. They are who they are, and, they are just not gorgeous, no matter what they wear or, how well they wear it. The fortunate ones recognize their own special brand of beauty and embellish on it, however defined, and the others, they strive to achieve the unattainable and suffer inferiority leaving them feeling far from adequate the majority of the time.
Later in life, as we age, we may go to great lengths to hold onto our beauty. Indeed, a mark of mature attractiveness seems to be the range and extent that we will go to in order to maintain its ideal. For some people nothing less than surgical interventions will work to synthesize the gradual changes in their physical form over the years to reconcile their outer reality. A calculated risk, but one most people do not mind taking, since they end up, rather pleased with the results.
There are enormous social implications attached to beauty. Everyone likes to be around the beautiful and so, it appears, beauty has its practical applications. It sure helps to beat the odds on life. The following are just some of the aesthetic factors that contribute immeasurably to beauty:
