    Can we identify physical trends that vary rom decade to decade, or is beauty timeless?

    I am interested in what we define as beauty, when we choose to create it ourselves. Beauty has always been a currency and now that we finally have the technology to mind our own, what choices do we make? Is beauty informed by contemporary culture, by history or is it defined by the surgeon's hand?

    Isn't beauty in the eyes of the beholder? Beholder's eyes may be influenced by latest trends and peer pressure. This means even within a decade or a year, different people can have diverse views on beauty.

    Well Beata . . . based on your picture and writing you would definitely qualify in my book as beautiful, however most often I find beauty in those that have love in their hearts and a love light in their eyes.

    This I would consider to be a timeless beauty . . . a soul as bright as the stars!

    That truly know how to live in the moment and practice unconditional love and truth, which is a rare quality here in America.

    I believe beauty is timeless and identifiable even by babies. Experiments have been done where babies respond to and gaze at a beautiful face longer than average.

    There are standard scientific measurements of facial beauty. But it doesn't take a scientist to understand the appeal of diverse, celebrated beauty seen in the faces of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Brigette Bardot, Sophia Loren, Kate Moss, Karlie Kloss, Victoria's Secret models, and on and on.  Validation of the  timelessness of beauty is seen in today's fashion magazines that are bringing back Bardot's look and other famous, vintage looks of the past

    The nature-given, genetic gift of beauty is an original work of art.  Plastic surgeons work to replicate the real deal.  But the standards of genetic beauty can only give the surgeons an example to follow.

    I think that classic beauty is indeed timeless.  That goes without saying that we all have our pluses and minuses.  By identifying what we find attractive - like shoulders, hands, ankles, a slim waist - you name it - and finding ways to let those assets come into full play is part of living with beauty.  Age doesn't have to mean a steep decline in beauty.  I have seen many graceful women in their 50s and 60s (and older) who looked better than in younger years when they were stressed with too many demands.  Beauty is within.  Beauty is without.  Beauty is everywhere.  Beauty gives encouragement to other people to go on living and celebrating the beauty around them.  Don't be ashamed or afraid to be beautiful.  Being alive means being on a treasure hunt for those things that appeal to us, or are in fact subjectively "beautiful".
