The Vanishing Beauty

The billion dollar cosmetic industry is covering up the true beauty that was given to beautiful women. Their beauty should begin in the minds of them thinking that they were “fearfully and wonderfully made” mentioned by a Psalm of David in Psalms 139:14. He made notice of this to God that made him and all of humanity. God made beautiful women of all races “fearfully” meaning very careful not to make a mistake and “wonderfully” meaning to amazement of wonder beyond human understanding and to the point of beautiful from birth. It is only we that take the beauty away and many times, to never return unless restored by natural and spiritual means.

I must say though, it seems that naturally beautiful black women are becoming an endangered species. They are succumbing victims to and of themselves. These women are vanishing into artificial objects for the pleasure of gaining acceptances from other people.

Tattoos are covering their bodies, taking away precious imprints of naturally colored skin tones. Their added false eyelashes are making the fake eyelash business rich as they forsake the natural make up of eye beauty. It seems, in a way, every woman with fake eyelashes look alike and has a particular attitude. The best way to compete and be different from other women is to be as natural as possible and not as beautiful as possible. Weaved in hair looks good itself but does not always fit the skit.

Men will like women with or without make up. However, the one he takes home to momma is preferred to be as natural as she was made. Most of the time, a man’s fantasy is to hit the jackpot when they can see just a little but feel a lot: slang fully called, “get his nut off.”

What I did not mention in a previous hub is that black men are trained to see through the make up or the fakeness of black women. This is one reason why rappers disrespect them in their songs. Check this, why do women call each other or even their home girls “bitches or hoes?” Black women were naturally born beautiful from head to toes. Instead of buying material things to spruce up their beauty they should be spending money and time on enhancing their spirituality and preparing for marriage while working and doing things that they love to do. There is not much reward in having a relationship with a man that knocks her up and splits after giving her one, two or maybe three babies then leaving her as a single promiscuous parent. A boy and girl need both parent figures in order to be raised properly.

There are some men that desire women most for their natural beauty. Natural beauty should not be tainted with. It has an ingrown perpetuity that is impeccable. It should not be laced with contemporary concepts except for playing a role. Why do some women wear shoes that are not good for their feet or wear shoes that can turn beautiful feet to look ugly? To what reason is owed such a sacrifice? Wearing shoes that are looking so cute is not worth hurting precious feet. There is a priority here.

A naturally beautiful black woman using foul language is a degrading of herself and perhaps an embarrassment to others around or even away from her. It does not take foul language to express a point or an idea.

A naturally beautiful black woman should be admired, is worth more than gold or whatever money can buy. Such a woman was made to love her man and be loved in return unconditionally.

She should love and respect her man to the point of his wanting to marry her and is considered his soul mate. Surely, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and a woman is beautiful in and out if a man sees and feels all of that about her. Surely, what is particularly beautiful to one man may not be to another. So be that. However particularly, a natural and spiritual woman is profoundly beautiful because she reveals a divine beauty of mind and other attractions that God created for all the beauty in the universe.

A Captivating Mind Heart and Attraction

A naturally beautiful black woman is proud through the grace of God for His creating her. The beauty had started in her mind, then in her kind heart and then on to her natural, physical attraction with a dazzling smile to go with it all. In addition to self she possesses a caring and concern for the welfare of all humanity. This beauty must be shown for beauty to be unique.

Attributes of the Beautiful Black Woman

  • The eyes are a strong part of the personality. They are ones that take you in and express without words that the person behind them accepts who you are, at least for the time being.
  • When this black beauty speaks, it is of warmth, passion and admiration that deserves love in return. No foul language is ever heard in the speaking of her vocabulary.
  • Her skin tone is radiant with sheer attractiveness
  • Her body is proportioned to accommodate the desires of a good man
  • She is determined to prosper and live in excellent health
  • She is educated in the goodness of life to no limit
  • She is determined to love for love and submit to her loving man

A True Loving Experience

A man desires to experience every aspect of his beautiful, black woman. He wants to venture outwardly and intimately with her, all the things that he had experienced, on a temporary basis with women he has had in preparing to permanently enjoy love and life now, with her. He wants to adorn her with flowers and roses occasionally for the rest of their lives together. There is not much good in a beautiful woman living life alone of course, unless she prefers it that way.

      I think you are right that black women, all women really, do better when we keep it on the natural side. I wish you much luck finding the perfect Mrs. word55 if you haven't already. I have no doubt she's out there looking for you.

      Hey Word55. I get that you are specifically talking to the black women of the world and encouragement is great. And also, the words you speak are true. However, they actually shouldn't only speak to black women. Maybe they should speak to all women, because everything you described that black women have fell victim to, the truth is "all" women have fell victim to. Fake plastic stuff and clothes and shoes that make them look slutty instead of a loyal mate. Yes, I think this is an epidemic for all women; black, white, Asian, Latino, it really doesn't matter. Too much celebrity influence and commercials and infomercials selling a flawless beauty in a bottle. Reality has become tainted by photoshopped magazine pictures and their ideals of a perfect woman. This was a good article for black women and all women to read.

      I couldn't comment about 'Black women' (being of white Anglo Saxon extraction) but beauty is something that is more than skin deep.

      A few weeks ago my wife and I watched an interview with Rachel Hunter, the supermodel who was married to Rod Stewart (not the kind of programme I would choose) it was fascinating as she'd just made a series of documentaries traveling the world looking at what various cultures considered beauty.

      The strangest thing was that the cultures we normally think of as associated with fashion all said one thing "God made you this way, so THIS IS WHAT BEAUTY IS!"

      Really enjoyed this hub

      Very enlightening. However, I feel that it is not just black women who suffer this dilemma. Women of all colors are stricken with the demands of a society that tells women they are not beautiful unless they look a certain way (tall, thin, milky skin). I think the fake lashes, artificial nails, tattoos, and wild clothing are what women do to gain attention. They want people to look at them and appreciate them, but they have not been taught that they are beautiful just as they are - without all the extras.

      I had to vote no in your poll, becaise in the US, being submissive is tantamount to wearing a "kick me" sign on your forehead. Itcworks in Asia, where a man who demeans his wife is disgraced, but not here.

      Beautiful piece, though!

      Word, you started a great discussion here. Since it is the women who are making themselves vanish--behind the makeup and the hair, we have to help them find their worth which cannot be put on outside, but is being ignored on the inside. Men like you can be very helpful in this regard. Keep talking!

      Hi Shauna, I added some changes based on what you said. I am not a chauvinist. I am only trying to help keep these particular women from forsaking their natural born-with beauty. Of course, men should love their women as equally but this hub is about the vanishing of beautiful black women. Anyway, I thank you for stopping by and giving your opinion. I don't think a woman should do any more for a man than she desires to.Hi Shauna, I added some changes based on what you said. I am not a chauvinist.

      From reading this article, yes, women do subject themselves to many things to beautify themselves. Yet, in my opinion about the weave issue, many black women do it for convenience or because of health reasons. If you talk about black women's 'natural hair' it is high maintenance as well, so many chose the lesser time maintenance. Yet, it's cultural, or what has been taught to them no matter what race they're from. In my opinion, natural beauty comes from within and it shines out in addition to how a woman maintains her outward appearance.

      Very interesting article. Of course we all know what you say is true as we age but I agree as almost all here have, the pressure is just overwhelming and women do not trust their own instincts. Hope we can share this around and give many something to think about or share with someone else!

      Al, I'm not a black woman but I have a few things to say about women in general - at least from the point of this woman.

      I won't even address the clothing, makeup, or tattoo issues. A woman does what pleases her. If it pleases a man as well, all the better.

      I'm an attractive woman who lives alone. For you to say, "There's not much good in a beautiful woman living life alone" is a slap in the face. Am I not a worthy "specimen" because I choose to live alone? Or is it okay for an unattractive woman to live alone? Is she not worthy of male attention?

      "She is determined to love for love and submit to her loving man." And "Her body is proportionate to accommodate the desires of a good man." Let's not forget, "Such a woman was made to love her man unconditionally." Where's the two-way street here?

      What planet are you from and what era do you live in? Are you kidding me? You make us sound like objects that were "fearfully and wonderfully made" for the sole purpose of being at the service of men's physical and emotional needs. You make no mention of a loving, reciprocal relationship. What is the role of men in this world? How should they treat women?

      And what of the men that buff up and dress out? Are they to be scorned because they want to look good? Who are they trying to impress? Does it really matter in the grand scheme of things?

      Women and men have been flirting, tantalizing and strutting for eons. It's in our nature. Animals do it. Birds do it. Reptiles do it. And so do humans.

      Frankly, I'm surprised by this article, Al. It seems very sexist to me. Women are not objects. We're not here to to serve men.

      And those of us who choose to be without a mate are no less of a woman and can certainly live a good life without succumbing to servitude.

      Wow, Al, what an important hub from a man's perspective! I am not a black woman of course, but I do believe the points you share are important to all woman of every race. I agree that one's natural beauty should be allowed to shine and when a woman's heart is beautiful, it naturally shows in every action, word, deed and appearance from inner to outer beauty. When women have self-respect, that flows over to men respecting them for who they are and not artificially made up. Today's media places so much pressure on women to be perceived as the world sees them, and not how God sees them. We are fearfully and wonderfully made and that's that!

      This reminds me of a poem I wrote that I had named "nappy hair" the poem started out with the words "I love my nappy hair" but then, I changed the poem's name to "The skin I'm in" I changed the name because I realized I was not talking about hair texture, but about learning to love myself. As I began to grow spiritually, I learned to love myself through the eyes of God and not through the eyes of society. I learned to appreciate the uniqueness and, the intricate- creativity, the Creator has designed in all His creations. As the races deny their uniqueness to become like everyone else; I think we are missing the fact God loves a beautiful, colorful variety. Sadly, when I allowed a few of my girlfriends to read my poem they felt I was putting down ( fake hair, nails and some who bleach. What the poem was about was a person who learned to love themselves, once they realized how beautiful they were in the eyes of God. A beautiful and necessary hub. Some people don't like the truth, but awareness is the point. Voted up, useful, interesting and shared.

      When a female baby is born, she is not born with traits, character, etc. These are taught and learn as she develops and grow. If she is not taught how to be a lady while growing, she will know nothing except for what she sees. This sometime can cause bad judgement, character and no self esteem. Spiritual development is equally important. All of these characters should start at an early age and it's sad to say that more often good character isn't taught at all so she turns to the streets.

      I hope you have found or will find this (for you) ideal woman. I prefer a relationship of equals rather than of submission.

      Natural beauty appeals to me, too. At the same time, I admire the creativity of women whose hairdo, fingernails, etc. are ornate works of art.

      Hi word55, I agree with the other comments. There is too much pressure through the media and society in general on all young girls and women to conform to what is deemed desirable. Natural beauty is far more attractive in most cases and should be promoted more. Great message here. Well done.

      "A naturally beautiful black woman should be admired, is worth more than gold or whatever money can buy."

      Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

      I believe the more access one has to express their individuality they are going to try a variety of looks or whatever to see how they feel about it. Generally speaking it's about how that individual feels about them self.

      A father can tell his daughter a million times a day she's beautiful but if none of the boys at her school asks her out to the dance she is not going to feel beautiful. Therefore she likely to want to emulate the women who are getting the attention and dates. Men do the same thing in many ways.

      If you want something different you have to do something different.

      However with age generally comes wisdom. People stop worrying so much about what others think and focus on making themselves happy.

      Life is a personal journey!

      Very timely premise you present, word55. I am disturbed by some things I see today with how black women are succumbing to what they perceive as beauty. I think they are really competing with each other. It seems that the reality shows fuel it. I wrote a hub about how we need to go back to the basics of teaching girls about acceptable images of themselves and cultivating good self-esteem. Your emphasis on spiritual development is important. Voted up and interesting.
