What is Beauty?

Thursday, November 05, 2009

Since launching our Beauty at All Ages contest with the fabulous exploremodeling.com, we’ve asked you to tell us what beauty means to you.  We received tons of amazing responses!  Here are just a few beautiful quotes, in response to our e.l.f.  beauty at all ages Youtube video, describing what beauty means to them!
-“Beauty is beyond the eye of the beholder. No matter what make-up you try, it personalizes your own creativity which will stand out.”
-“True beauty radiates from within - it the outward expression of beautiful soul.”
-“A beautiful person is someone who is true to themselves and everyone around them. Being yourself is beautiful.”
-“Beauty is a verb. When people have a passion they are most beautiful doing what they love.”
-“I think beauty is being yourself. Feeling comfortable and happy with who you are, and makeup is just the icing on the cake.”
Which one of these quotes is your favorite, or what do you think “Beauty” is?  Check out more of our Beauty at All Ages contest at exploremodeling.com!!

I think beauty is being happy and comfortable with yourself even with "flaws". It's so easy to compare yourself with others and find something wrong with yourself or something to be improved, but being truly beautiful is when you can get past all the nonsense.

I like the last quote, "I think beauty is being yourself. Feeling comfortable and happy with who you are, and makeup is just the icing on the cake." If someone is comfortable with themselves that shines through and it can be very radiant. Makeup enhances that beauty from within.

I think that true beauty is how wonderful you are from the inside not just how you look on the out.

I kinda feel like its a hybrid between "true beauty radiates from within..." and "...Feeling confortable and happy with who you are..." For I have noticed people who scowl and glare too much tend to look positively horrid, and those who lack confidence in themselves tend to show that as well - they seem washed out, or faded somehow, its visible, but difficult to pinpoint.

A beautiful person is someone who is true to themselves and everyone around them. Being yourself is beautiful. I know so many beautiful people who are beautiful because of who they are, how they act, and how they treat other people. It goes way beyond the conventional definition of beauty. There is nothing more ugly than a mean spirited person, no matter how they look.

Beauty is as they say in the eye of the beholder. If a person carries themselve beautifully and believes in themselves...they are BEAUTIFUL!

My mom has always told me that beauty comes from the inside & Ive never really grasped what she meant until I was older. Now I am a true believer in that, however you feel inside it radiates on the outside, consciously & unconsciously. So the quote that stands out to me is "True beaty radiate from witin - its the outward expression of beautiful soul."& For me, beauty means not being afraid of your own vision or sense of style b/c we are all beautiful in different ways, & thats what makes us unique! =)

My favorite quote is: "Beauty is a verb. When people have a passion they are most beautiful doing what they love. Beauty is ageless, a person glows when is happy doing things he/she loves.

I think kindness and confidence are key to being beautiful. Makeup can only do so much when you're ugly inside.

I agree completely with the qoute "A beautiful person is someone who is true to themselves and everyone around them. Being yourself is beautiful." Anyone who is not being true to themselves or other people is hardly beautiful. I love this campaign!

Beauty is...internal first, then works out. And, can be accentuated by the clothes and make-up we wear.

I think this is a great idea. Models don't have to be anorexic and all angular in the face, they can just be your ever day average Joe.

Beauty does not lie in appearance, it lies in the minds and hearts of people. People who are happy, content and satisfied with their lives are beautiful! Make-up is just the highlighter of beauty!!

-I think beauty is being yourself. Feeling comfortable and happy with who you are, and makeup is just the icing on the cake. This one is my most favorite one. I believe it's true, being yourself is beautiful plus being comfortable and happy with who you are is a bonus. Now a days, every girl is worried about being too large and are trying to be too thin. What girls should know is that you can still attract that special someone by being yourself. If they don't like you, that's their loss. People should like you for who you are, not for what you look like.

I think this is a great contest, because it allows for any regular person to go and be a model, but for the right reason. I am trying for the competition as well and I like that it makes us all feel beatiful no matter what age.

I like the quote "Beauty is is in the eye of the beholder..." because is really is. We all think that celebrities are the most beautiful, but they really aren't. I think all the publicity they get, makes it seems that way, but normal people are beautiful as well.

I love the idea of expanding the concept of beauty to more than a pretty face.

True beauty radiates from within - it the outward expression of beautiful soul. this one is my favorite. I think that how you take care of yourself on the outside shows how you feel inside. People that do not care what they look like in my opinion is really because they are not happy with themselves.

For me beauty is more how respectable and gentle you are towards others. A person with too much attitude and rude nature is not liked by many. Having outer beauty with beautiful heart is definetly loved by everyone :)

Beauty is having a great personality and not being concerned with your flaws, but showing the positive about yourself!

Everyone has a different image of beauty. We all have some made-up person of beauty, and we want to look like that, but if you do look like what you think you should and someone doesnt like you doesnt mean your not beautiful. I personaly think beauty is around us. The sun, moon, flowers, ect. But people who tried hard to be who they want to be, people fighting togther to reach a goal. That is beauty team work, and everyone body had beauty in them, doing whatever they do.

I think beauty is something that you're born with. Everyone is beautiful in their own way. God created us all differntly, and we shouldn't have to be embarrased about how we look. When you're beautiful, be proud and confident about who you are and what you look like, I'm Chinese-American, and I'm not ashamed that I look different than a lot of people in Napoleon, Ohio. I'm proud of who I am, and what I look like :)
