When comparing between natural beauty and artificial beauty, one must first ask himself, What is beauty? According to the Little Oxford English Dictionary, beauty is described simply as 'the quality of being very pleasing to the senses'. However, Stendhal, a nineteenth century writer states that beauty is the promise of happiness. Perhaps this is the reason then that human beings, mainly women, are pressured in looking beautiful all the time. This is because beauty happens to be the most gratifying quality of feature for women. The effect it has made on women is astonishing.
Beauty begins with confidence. Confidence begins with inner peace. This inner peace influences natural beauty which is all about the body and face given by God. Among women, natural beauty is merely embellished and enhanced by make up. Make up does not alter the original symmetry of the face or body. Hence, when a woman applies make up, she becomes more confident as she is now more comfortable with herself. In this way, women tend to become less self conscious about themselves.
