There are three types of beauty, 1) Political Beauty, 2) Artificial Beauty and 3) Genuine Beauty.
This is what I argue, among other things, in Pretty, a documentary series exploring different ideas of beauty across the globe. Watch my episode in the clip below.
Then if you would like to hear more of my thoughts on beauty including whether there is such a thing as black beauty, and how black women are portrayed in the UK, watch the second clip embedded below too, where I and other women in London discuss these topics.
What is beauty to you?
What is beauty? I can’t even begin to describe how many lenses I identify beauty through. Physical beauty, intellectual beauty, personality (kindness, radiance etc), beauty in confidence, mainstream beauty. For myself I strive to achieve beauty in personality, confidence and intellect and endeavor to remain focused and not compare my own beauty to the beauty of others, because it is and always will be different and I won’t find satisfaction in comparing the type of beauty I strive for to the type of beauty other have.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on what beauty means to you, Lucie.
Ese Obrimah says
Beauty is aspiration to be the best you you can be. Beauty is having a heart that loves, and hands that give, and a mind that wonders to places in search of ways to make your world a better place.
Beauty is engrained in the confidence you have in who you are. If you don’t think you’re beautiful, you’re not going to believe others who tell you you are. And if you don’t treat yourself like you’re genuinely beautiful, others won’t.
True genuine beauty flows from the inside out making for an attractive exterior built on the foundation of a passionate, loving, and powerful interior.
Beautifully put! 🙂
