The New Age of Beauty

The New Age of Beauty

New Hair Review

Beauty they say is in the eyes of the beholder. Every living being has their own definition of beauty. Some see beauty as anything natural, so minimal makeup, no hair extensions or weaves, no piercings or tattoos. Others see beauty as being skinny, no body hairs, full on makeup, hair extensions and weaves, tattoos, stylish pieces, fake boobs, fake butt, fake tan and anything fake, flashy or over the top

I see beauty differently. When I look at a beautiful woman, I see –

Brains – This is so major for me. Beauty and brains go hand in hand, I have zero tolerance for anyone who lacks in the intelligence department.

Flattering makeup.

Flattering hair extensions and weaves (if needed).

A healthy BMI – This is another major quality for me.

Good dentition – pearly whites are so easy on the eye.

Smooth/spotless skin.

No tattoos whatsoever – I thank God I did not go ahead with my teenage dream of having a tattoo. I would have had to visit a Tattoo Removal Clinic in my twenties, when I saw the light.

I find that my beauty qualities change as I grow older. Some qualities that would have made my teenage list, when I was like 13, or even 18, like being 6 feet tall and having an hour-glass shape, definitely do not make my list now that I am almost 30, and I am sure more qualities will come on and off my list in my forties and fifties.

I am 100% certain, that beauty will continue to evolve, and  that society will continue to dictate what we call beautiful, with the Bimbos and others continuously shoved in our faces everyday, if we allow it. I don’t, I live my by own rules, and when I see beauty, this is what I see:

BEYONCE

I admire the fact that Beyonce is beauty and brains combined. She is a strong, hard-working woman, and so beautiful.

Nicole Scherzinger

I love her stunning features. She is a true natural beauty. She rolls out of bed looking GLAM.

Gwen Stefani

This woman does not seem to age. She looks exactly like how she looked 10 years ago and that is what I call a BEAUTY.

Genevieve Nnaji

This effortless African beauty is the truth. She reminds me of Queen Bey, beauty and brains here as well. I adore her.

Eva Longoria

I still cannot believe that Eva Longoria is in her 40s. Beauty goals right here. She can easily pass for a 28-year-old.

  1. I see beauty in strength and kindness, I think if you have that within then it will show externally too. I can’t really get excited about how celebs look because so much of that is down to plastic surgery, botox, decent lighting and a good make up artist.

  2. Most times beautiful is used for what i call good looks. Beautiful for me should be total. someone who has good physical looks, good carriage and inner attributes. That is a beautiful woman. It is difficult to immediately see the inner qualities, therefore beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  3. When I was younger beauty used to mean how someone looked and presented themselves to the world. Now, I see beauty in actions. I think it’s more important to focus energy on being a good, decent person in this difficult world than painting and primping oneself to be appealing to the eye. That’s just my two cents’ worth. 🙂

  4. I love people with the maverick edge to how they are! You can tell alot about a person persona with how they hold themselves and interact with the world.

    Looking your best is different for each person as we all hopefully develop our own style which evolves as we get older. Me personally I love tattoo’s though it does depend on the tattoo’s and type of. Some people can wear them with style and others can’t.

    Whilst not female David Bowie sums up pure persona and beauty, if that makes sense. Someone who pushes the boundaries, in life and dares to be different is my idea of beauty

  5. I have to say I am with you on the tattoos I am so glad I didn’t have one. They can be really amazing but I am too fickle and I would have been unhappy so soon after

Speak your heart, don't bite your tongue!
