What makes a person exceeding beautiful or handsome? Why beauty/handsomeness matter

particularly in this postmodern society? Despite the adage that beauty/handsomeness is only skin deep, looks do matter. In fact, the more attractive a person is, the more privileges he/she receives. In this image obsessed society, particularly the entertainment business, doors are opened for those who are beautiful/handsome which are NOT OPENED for the plain to homely. Attractive people are treated better and usualy earn more than those who are not blessed in the looks department.

    Beauty to the human eye = balance. That's why we admire well proportioned--balanced--faces. That's why some art is enduring. The Mona Lisa painting is balanced in dozens of ways.

    Unbalanced stuff is ugly,

    Yes, however, beauty is beauty no matter what one does and if one is very aethestically challenged so to speak, no amount of clothes and personality will make such a person attractive!
