  14. 14. Thin is in? So, beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder! Some of these practices may seem strange, even unattractive to us, but I wonder what the people who do them would think of our ideas of beauty.
  15. 15. • REAL BEAUTY is not about the looks, the dress, or things in your body, like jewelries, etc. • It is not also about the color of your skin, nor the shape of your face, even the style of your hair. • It is not about the physical appearance but the inside look. Its what’s in the inside that matters !
  16. 16. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION “ Beauty is not about having a pretty face. It’s about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart, and a pretty soul “

  • Elognate drezh krdnawa ,, lobes krkragay gwe lw ,, tusk kalba
  • something that you say which means that each person has their own opinion about what or who is beautiful Personally, I can't understand why she finds him attractive, but they do say beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
  • Beauty means something different to different kinds of people.  The meaning of beauty is influenced by our environmental surrounding, society, media, peers, culture and experiences.  When people think about beauty we think about the physical visual appearance.  I find that the media and society teaches beauty using visual examples. We all know beauty but do we understand it?
