Beauty is in the phi of the beholder, a blessing, a curse, and more than skin deep.

*bleeding nose* LOL. Okay, let's face it. When we meet someone new a first impression is first about looks; only later do things such as personality, brains and character start to take on meaning. A side note about beauty is that weight isn't much of a factor, unless the person is morbidly obese or anorexically skinny. The key to perceived beauty is the face. 
*If you don't agree please do comment. I'd love to know your opinions on this. :)*

Mathematician try to put beauty in numbers. And that's where phi comes in. You see, they said beauty is all about symmetry, which is signified by the golden ratio

Korean beauty standards (S lines, V lines, X-line, are in today and it's slightly different than the Americans. Based on my observation, 18-25 years old Malaysians' idea of ideal beauty of a woman is pretty much the same: fair flawless radiant skin, which is the reason for the madness to KColly, AuraWhite, Pearl-White and other collagen-based-whitening supplement (White face, black hands? urmm...) Actually the colour of our skin shouldn't matter, it's geographically dependant, look at this female beauty standards of the world

Oh! I found out that it's actually prohibited (haram) to do it true? Idk really, *If you don't agree or want to comment anything, please do so. I'd love to know your opinions on this. :)*


Most of us, regardless of our professed attitudes, prefer as customers to buy from better-looking salespeople, as jurors to listen to better-looking attorneys, as voters to be led by better-looking politicians, as students to learn from better-looking professors. Plus, the self-esteem of beautiful people is relatively higher than the averaged ones. Don't worry, with the right motivation and tools, beauty is easy. (I think I'll post about that later on)

Tbh idk how to wear make-up. Make up is scary...


Some people say that beauty is a curse. The dark side of beauty includes narcissism, prone to douchebags who take advantage on their preys, obsession to stay pretty according to specified beauty standards etc. 63% of people said that the beauty standards today is NOT HEALTHY. It is RIDICULOUS. FYI, these are the common beauty-related disorders that need help, ie bulimia, obesity, anorexia



Nope, beauty is more than skin deep

So is it possible to determine something as "objectively beautiful" when the values of beauty are constantly shifting? Absolutely no. Well, yes as a guideline to make you a better but not to the point of obsession.  Everyone have different definitions of beauty. You don't have to conform to other's idea of ideal beauty. In my humble opinion,
