What Is Beauty?

Recently I have been thinking about the word “beauty”, and how it is defined. Although I have my own perception of what beauty is, it interests me to find out what exactly the rest of the world thinks. In different cultures, and different places around the world there are different standards of beauty that may be similar or different from my own. During my last semester I wrote a piece titled “Beauty And The Bullshit”. The essay covers my own personal definition of beauty and also touches on the standards that society sets for women as well as for men. I think in order for me to perfect this essay, I need to get a lot more insight from different groups of people. My question for you is, how do you define beauty? What qualities must a male or female possess to be considered beautiful? Do you consider yourself to be beautiful, if so what do you thinks makes you beautiful?
