    Being confident, humble and having a good sense of humor makes a person beautiful. Truly, it’s so cliche, but it’s what is on the inside that counts. But, a good concealor, lipgloss, and a little blush doesn’t hurt a girl!

  2. Amy says:

    Beauty is being tranquil in the midst of the storm.

  3. laura says:

    The experts say symmetry, but there is nothing quite as beautiful as a smile. If said smile is accented with lovely makeup …all the better 🙂

  4. Joanne C. says:

    What makes someone beautiful, It’s the way they carry themselves, kindness, politeness, someone that likes to share either things or thoughts. The outside only makes someone appearance-like-beautiful, and that fades as the years go by, but beauty within the inside stays as the years go by.

  5. Dao says:

    Beauty is not only skin deep but also a reflection of a person to the world. Being beautiful is being confident, kind, and compassionate to other people. I have this one professor who I adore so much not only because she is a gorgeous person. Dr. S is a very accomplished medicinal chemist in her field and she also takes time to help out and talk to her students, which not many professors do. As a female professional person in a male dominant field, it is very easy to look and act macho in order to compete with your male colleagues. Dr. S, however, chooses to act gracefully and takes care of herself very well. And being a Southern girl does help her, too. She is so pretty and cheerful on top of being an accomplished scientist. And those things make her a beautiful person whom I want to be when I grow up.

    Simple straightforward beauty. Dats my take on it…
    Too much is most often too much, its important to keep it simple and let your personality shine rather than just that highlighter you have on your cheeks 🙂

  7. Lea says:

    My philosophy on beauty is clean, simple, and light. What makes someone beautiful is confidence, elegance, and grace. What brings these characteristics is personal style; both in clothing and makeup. There is a place for everything, likewise clothing and makeup must be in place.

  8. Aprill says:

    My philosophy on beauty has grown immensely from the trials of life. I see beauty is someone who gives generously of themselves in any way, with joy and unselfishness to any person that is in need. That is the type of beauty that makes you take a second glance.

  9. Tami says:

    Beauty is being comfortable in your own skin. No matter your race, creed, color, shape or size, no amount of makeup can cover up a lack of confidence..

  10. yadiQ says:

    my philosophy on beauty is really simple – humility.

    Humility is that inner good that really brings so many different aspects of life together. HUmility exudes positivity form its beholder and is a rare value that many possess. We may not all have perfect symmetry or perfect linearity but beauty comes from how we think and treat others.

    Humility is like a sunset that sheds its warmth and glowing light on all and when we are exposed to it its beauty is contagious and is something that we cannot help but admire and try to pass on.

  11. Jen says:

    Hiya Karen!
    Long time reader first time “commenter.”

    I believe that what truly makes someone feel beautiful is their Passion. Whether you are passionate about makeup, about yourself, about your family, whatever it is you have passion for… that shows in your eyes, in your skin, all over you. My philosophy on beauty is… whatever it is you believe in… go for it… the glow of satisfaction is what truly makes you beautiful… (of course some makeup really does highlight those “glowing” features!) 🙂

    I cant believe I just wrote a comment… I’ve been so shy… LOL!

  12. Laney says:

    Ohhhhhh! I want those lip shines for me, and the rest for my mom!

    My thought on beauty is that when you’re happy with yourself, you’re beautiful. The more at peace you are with yourself, the more you give off that “inner glow” that makes you more alluring and radiant to those around you! I find that if I’m having a bad “self” day, faking it is the answer… Eventually I start to believe the positive repetition in my head, and others see it and compliment me! That’s certainly a self esteem boost : )

  13. Loni says:

    Beauty is knowing how to accentuate the good stuff, look cool and collected when you are anything but, and stand up straight when the world conspires to weigh you down. It’s about being a little daring with color and line. It’s about looking healthy and well-rested. And, most of all, it’s about finding joy in the things you do everyday.

  14. Vanessa H says:

    Hi Karen:-)
    Beauty is a woman that can embrace herself as God has made her. Beauty is every line on my mother’s face, lines she has earned from smiling and crying, from being so incredibly strong and held together even at times when everyone has given up on her and she has to stand alone. Beauty is in every silver hair that my mom has grown and refuses to cover up, because she said she has worked hard for it. Beauty is looking at what society has deemed as an imperfection and loving every bit of it.

    Thank you for your blog!

  15. Just_Kelly says:

    Applying makeup is a fundamentally optimistic act. It shows that you are ready to go out into society and want to be looked at in a positive light…Cosmetics send signals to other people. And happiness breeds happiness. People actually feel better when they’re around others who radiate positivity, and that’s the purpose makeup aims to serve…Novelty is a natural stimulant. It drives up dopamine in the brain. That feeling you get when you find that perfect shade of lipstick is your reaction to its newness…The whole ritual of putting on cosmetics is soothing. Performing small actions deliberately and carefully can be tranquil. And spending time focusing on yourself can be very restorative.

  16. Jaimie says:

    I love philosophy scents. They’re always on point.

    My philosophy on beauty is that its internal. No matter how “genetically blessed” you are on the outside, if your heart and soul are good, it’ll shine through and thats truly beautiful.

  17. Miss Fred says:

    What makes someone beautiful isn’t the arch of their eyebrows or the length of their lashes…it’s their inner beauty. A beautiful girl could be the shy girl hiding her face, or the out-there diva that wants everyone to know she’s arrived. But whoever she is, she knows that any sort of beauty product isn’t meant to give her beauty, it’s meant to bring out her own. Beauty isn’t someone wearing purple eyeliner because it brings out her brown eyes, or wearing a blue-based red lipstick because she has cool-toned skin; beauty is someone wearing blue eyeliner because she’s loved the colour blue since she was four, or someone wearing red lipstick (no matter what the undertones) because she wants to feel like a beautiful retro pin-up girl.

    I use the KISS philosphoy in every aspect of my life – Keep it simple silly!!!

    It keeps me from overdoing it and trying to be to trendy, its also helped clear up my skin (product overload from reading so many beauty blogs)

    From my eatting regimine to my skin care and make up just KISS and keep it moving. HOLLA!

  19. Jenna says:

    My philosophy on beauty? Beauty is always enhanced by a smile. Confidence does way more than makeup can, but makeup can help a bit with a person’s self-confidence.

  20. Amy says:

    My philosophy on beauty is to have fun with it! For the longest time I wore the same brown eyeshadow pallet. I finally branched out and haven’t looked back. Try different styles and colors. If it doesn’t work, you can wash it off and start over. And if it does work, ooh la la! Experiment and have fun. Life is too short to wear the same brown eyeshadow everyday. 🙂

  21. Kelly says:

    Wear a confident smile, have glowing skin, and treat everyone with respect and kindness and you will be the most beautiful woman in the room.

  22. Alexandra says:

    I think true beauty is just being comfortable with yourself and who you are. As long as you are happy with yourself, it doesn’t matter what others think.

  23. Amanda says:

    beauty is all about confidence in yourself!

  24. katy says:

    I can’t remember the last time I left my house completely barefaced, but I can remember the last boost of confidence I got from two heavy coats of Lancôme mascara.

    For a while I struggled with my identification as a feminist, and I worried about the kind of restrictions such a label would place on me. People always want to tell you what this-and-that means, because they’re afraid to think outside of the box, so they try to put you in one.

    But I am who I am, and I don’t fit any kind of rigid definition of femininity or feminism. If I want to read Betty Friedan while polishing my toes, I will. Neither act negates the other, and together they make me a complex and interesting human being.

    Because above all, beauty lies in the spark of fiery, passionate, and well-rounded life – and you shouldn’t apologize for accentuating a spark with a little bit of sparkle

  25. Karen B says:

    For me beauty is when the inner soul of a person shines through the outside. It’s that little gleam in someone’s eye or the way his or her smile lights up their entire face.

  26. pepper says:

    My philosophy is that when you focus on the the things you love about yourself, everything else (such as my jiggly bits) seems to vanish.

    And mascara never hurts, too.

  27. Megan says:

    WOW… only 250 words huh?

    My philosophy on beauty? My beauty philosophy is that we should always be our best self in all that we do. Honestly for a long time I would only wear makeup when going out…and maybe 2-3 times a week I would swipe on some mascara and lipstick in the morning and that was it. Then I watched one of those makeover shows on TV, and the host said something along the lines of, Unfortunately appearance matters in the real world, and the way you are presenting yourself is as if you just don’t care about yourself, and you do care about yourself, but what I see says that you think you’re not even worth 5 minutes of your time. It kinda hit home with me because I do have a tendency to put others first, and occasionally get too focused on other things. So ever since then I have committed to making an effort. Personally I love pretty simple looks. I like for people to be able to see me – my skin, my face…and not just my makeup.

    What makes someone beautiful? I have to agree with the other ladies that Beauty comes from the inside moreso than the outer appearance. Beauty is more about kindness, generosity and caring than it is about physical features.

  28. Jaime says:

    I think real beauty comes from how you carry yourself, your attitude, and how you present yourself to the world. If you take care of yourself and put a little effort into your attitude, your complexion, and how you treat others, you’re a real beauty to me! 🙂

  29. Camila Barbosa says:

    Being beautiful is being elegant. A polite person is also always beautiful. Taking care of yourself is really important; eating properly, doing exercises, putting on a good little make-up, to enhance your features, and wearing the clothes that suit you the best! But beauty, after all, is happiness. And that’s it! 🙂

  30. Karen says:

    Hi ladies,

    These are great. I am very touched by your thoughts on beauty!

    Keep ’em coming!

  31. lesley says:

    Beauty is timeless, it is not only a reflection of one’s self, but how one wants the world to see their self. It’s important to love yourself and how you look because beauty does not discriminate; it can come in many shapes, colours, and sizes. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so I say: if I think I’m beautiful, therefore, I am.

    More power to you, Karen. I think that this is a really great post to allow people to think about what beauty really means to them and could allow many people to empower themselves.

  32. Luv J says:

    I can pile on layers of foundation and make my lips as glossy as can be.. I can walk into a room and break necks if I please.. make a grown man cry — as they say.. yet the beauty I radiate feels ephemeral and shallow.

    But when I wake up in the morning, barefaced and hair all dishevelled.. I turn over and get tiny hands cupping my face, sweet wet kisses on my lips and saying the lyrical words “Hi Byootifoo”.. I smile and start my day knowing that I’m the most beautiful woman in the world.

    Ask my 21 month old baby why she picks dandelions from the ground and calls it “pweety”. I realize I don’t have to look and smell like roses all the time.

    INNOCENCE SEES ‘REAL BEAUTY’.. untainted by the media, countless magazine spreads.. just from the eyes of a child.

  33. ines says:

    my philosophy on beauty –

    the most beautiful woman in the world is one who carries herself with ultimate confidence without arrogance. this sort of woman, whether she is done up with makeup or barefaced, can stop traffic and turn heads.

    she is also comfortable in her own skin and recognizes her flaws but revels in her human imperfection – she knows she is beautiful even if she has untweezed eyebrows from time to time or small breasts. she learns not to live DESPITE these flaws, but rather to accept and love those aspects of her that make her unique.

    whatever a woman does to create this confidence – from trivial tasks such as doing one’s makeup, nails, and hair, to far more meaningful ones, for example, striving to excel in her career or taking up a hobby, and whatever she does to feel beautiful, is beauty in it’s own right and she should be proud of her femininity, rather than feel that she should be ashamed of her obssession with eyeliner, perfume, or lipstick.

    one could even go as far as to say that this right to femininity and just the fact that one is a woman, is the definition of beauty – as long as one chooses to celebrate the fact with confidence and grace.

  34. Henna says:

    Beauty is an attitude, it’s the confidence within 🙂

  35. xtina says:

    I believe what makes a woman beautiful is how she carries herself and if she has the confidence to go with it. As long as she thinks and believes she’s beautiful, she always will be.

  36. Lydia says:

    I think what makes someone beautiful is just to do what you like with makeup and wear what makes you feel comfortable. You don’t always have to follow every trend because sometimes they don’t work for everybody.

  37. Morgan says:

    Beauty is loving yourself and others. Short and sweet, and absolutely true!

  38. Tatiana says:

    what makes someone beautiful in my eyes is confidence and grace..
    My philosphy on beauty is to work what you’ve been given… to accept and then use in your favor is how it should be. I wouldn’t inject any-tox in my face to get a manniquin look and no one should.

  39. Connie says:

    Beauty is beyond looks – kindness, patience, tolerance, and being able to love. All of those things bring out the beauty in everyone.

  40. Josay says:

    MY Philosophy on Beauty IS :

    To be good and patient with myself. Give me some chances a better person and achieve my goals (even if they are not so easy to me!)

    I truly think that when you are happy inside this is reflected on the outside … with a little bit of help of course (beauty stuff very help!!!). Taking care of ME is my main goal.

    Since the slip with my bf of 10 years, I realize that I took TOO MUCH energies on someone else and now it’s MY time to shine.

    I want to take care of myself and I’m sure that Philosophy could help me. At least put a little joy in my heart.

    This is my Philosophy of beauty …

  41. Victoria says:

    Smile. Laugh. Be happy.
    And your beauty shall shine through. =D

  42. Lora says:

    Beauty is the courage to do the right thing, to make the hard decision, and to be true to yourself. Beautiful people have learned to love themselves in spite of life’s setbacks. It’s giving that love to others and being kind that makes someone beautiful inside and out. No lipgloss, moisturizer, or diet can make someone truly beautiful.

  43. Milan says:

    My philosophy on beauty:

    Laugh and dance like no one is watching. That’s when your true beauty shines through.

  44. Brittany says:

    Beauty isn’t a makeup thing. It’s definitely more of an attitude. Beauty is embracing what you have and not obsessing over what you don’t have. Be happy with what you have.

  45. Bearsmama says:

    Beauty, to me, is kindness. To oneself and others.

  46. Betty says:

    Beauty is not about the extra layer we put on, but what shines through that.

  47. jessica says:

    Finding your place in the world and doing things to make the world a better place for everyone in it. That’s beauty.

  48. anahita balsara says:

    beauty is having confidence in yourself. One should use makeup to accentuate your exisiting features and should be done in a way that makes YOU happy not anybody else.

  49. Lindsay says:

    Beauty is feeling comfortable and confident in your own skin – whether that includes makeup or not, dressing up or not, it’s individual to each one of us.

  50. Crystal says:

    The world’s definition of beauty is constantly changing, of both the inside and outside of a person.

    More important then being able to recognize what makes a person beautiful is finding the beauty in ordinary things, such as the beauty of laughter or the beauty of love. Being able to find such beauty is what makes life worth living for, and what makes the ugly elements of life so important, so that the beautiful things can shine.

    Only by acknowledging what makes everyday things beautiful can we then find the beauty in people.

  51. Stephy says:

    I think beauty is not able being made-up, it’s about being confident, cheerful and lovable all the time.

    Stephys last blog post..Product Review: Diorshow Iconic Mascara

  52. Lena says:

    I believe that beauty is something that one has to believe in – in order to be beautiful. Basically, someone cannot be percieved as beautiful if they don’t believe that themselves, just like how once you accept you and embrace you for who you are, then others can accept you and embrace you. Beauty is confidence, beauty is loving your natural features. Beauty is what you are, not what the society shapes you to be. Beauty is for someone to stay true to themselves and keep it real without ever going out of their own way to be someone else’s beauty, your belief of beauty is what counts and that I believe, is the most beautiful thing a woman can be.

  53. Meaghan says:

    True beauty eminates from within. A beautiful person is a person who makes those around them feel beautiful too. They know when to pick someone up when they are down even when they are too busy; they make those around them feel appreciated; they care for the smaller things that most overlook. A true beauty is that friend that makes you smile and you walk away from them feeling like a better person and that your life has been enriched by them. The true beauty leaves an impact on all those they meet but doesn’t consciously try- its a quality that naturally comes from within- and they naturally share with all around them- from their best friend to the clerk at a grocery store. Thy give graciously without expecting anything in return.

  54. Alli says:

    My beauty philosophy is just be true to yourself. Whether it’s makeup and clothes or your beliefs and standards. You’ll always be beautiful if you’re only trying to be you and not someone else.

  55. Rosie Dust says:

    beauty is feeling good about yourself. if you don’t have that, you’ll never be beautiful in the mirror or to others.

  56. eileen says:

    Beauty to me is acceptance. Not only accepting others into your life no matter who they are or where they come from but accepting yourself more than anything. *quick story: in the third grade I fell…hard. Totally messed up my teeth but lack of health insurance meant no braces. So finally a kajillion years later (ok senior yr of high school) I got braces ‘cuz I got health insurance. So first I hated the mirror cuz I had horrible teeth and than I went to hating the mirror cuz of the metal in my mouth. Now 3 yrs later I’ve realized that the braces don’t mean crap. I finally came to terms that the braces are there whether I like it or not.

    and my smile is still bangin’! lol when you love lip gloss as much as I do…lips are your secret weapon. =)

  57. Kristina says:

    Beauty to me is a combination of confidence, inner light and an awareness of self. That – and a killer pair of heels:)

  58. Marisol says:

    What is your take on these 3n1 products? Sort of freaks me out because I don’t feel like they would wash your hair properly or cleanse your body.

    What makes someone beautiful?
    To me what makes someone beautiful is being true to who they are. Inner beauty is what matters because the outer beauty fades with time. How you carry yourself when you don’t think others are looking is a true reflection of who you are.

  59. Grace says:

    Beauty is the inquisitive stare of an innocent child.

  60. betsy says:

    Just thinking about those products (and their names) is making me hungry, lol!

    My philosphy on beauty is that you are as beautiful as how you find others. The more nit-picky and condescending you are with the way other people look, the less you’ll feel good about yourself. And being beautiful is all about being at peace in your own skin.

    …I hope that somewhat made sense!

  61. Rachel says:

    Beauty is not about the makeup you wear or the clothes you buy. Beauty is feeling attractive and beautiful even at your worst. Beauty is feeling confident in sweats and sneakers. Beauty is an ability, not an innate characteristic. You need to learn to be beautiful, to feel beautiful without any outside help.

  62. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    I like em mostly for body washes and bubble baths. In a pinch they do okay to clean the hair… if you’re streamlining your packing they’ll do you fine for a weekend trip. 🙂

  63. I would like to define beauty with my favorite poem.

    Sam Levenson’s Time Tested Beauty Tips

    ♥ For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
    ♥ For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
    ♥ For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
    ♥ For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
    ♥ For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.
    ♥ People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anybody.
    ♥ Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
    ♥ As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
    ♥ The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
    ♥ The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows.

    This in true words defines beauty.

  64. Tiffany says:

    My philosophy on beauty is simple; beauty should be natural and effortless. A beautiful smile accompanied by compassion, kindness and honesty are a true sign of beauty.

  65. Carolyn says:

    For me, beauty is innate in everyone. Each and every individual has his/her own little attributes that makes him/her beautiful… we just have to open our minds and our hearts to notice it.

  66. Charlene says:

    I believe what makes a person beautiful is their smile and their sense of confidence because nothing is more beautiful than carrying yourself well. When a person let’s their inner beauty shine.. that is truly and simply beautiful.

  67. Ms. S says:

    Happiness makes people beautiful.

  68. Victoria P says:

    What makes someone beautiful? Feeling beautiful on the inside makes it show on the outside. Be happy!

  69. Karina says:

    True beauty knows no age. It is acceptance of your flaws and maximizing your assets– physically, intellectually, and spiritually. It’s the inner glow that radiates outward which translates to beauty.

  70. Ann says:

    beauty is confidence and the courage to smile even when you’re in the lowest point of your life.

  71. M.D. says:

    My beauty philosophy is simple: less is really more. A little lip gloss, some pink blush and a quick swipe of mascara and I’m good to go. And, when all else fails, a good romp with my man gives me a sexy flush for hours – no makeup required!

  72. Adina says:

    My philosophy on beauty is quite simple, never be afraid to go a little bit out of your comfort zone while still always staying true to your own unique style. Trends will come and go, but you will always be a classic beauty.

  73. Ami says:

    What makes someone beautiful is a question that cannot be answered because we all know beauty is in the eye of the beholder…but alas I shall be the beholder , and beauty to me is genuine positive energy that is pouring out of someone, you know, they just have that glow…:-)

  74. Ellery says:

    To me, beauty is a person. It doesn’t matter how much makeup you put on, the clothes you wear, or how hard you try to improve yourself, your natural beauty will always shine through and people will notice that before they notice anything else.

    (How come I get all shy when I start typing about meaningful things? It took me like 10 minutes to put that into words, lol!)

  75. Tiffany says:

    What makes someone beautiful? Being selfless and giving! Beauty is often in the way that we impact others and alter their days and their lives.

  76. Okyanus says:

    My beauty philosophy is that beauty is acceptance. Accept what you have and what you don’t, then try to enhance yourself. This isn’t about cosmetic beauty, it’s about life. Accept that you’ve never had a chance to travel to Spain like you had always dreamed of and then try to enhance your life by taking a few Spanish classes and working towards a trip to Spain. If it’s aesthetic, accept that you have a big tummy and choose clothes that enhance your shape…choose the right blazer and pants combo and it will do wonders for you. Yeah, I’m speaking from experience lol.

  77. Suzy says:

    A beautiful person makes others feel beautiful about themselves. Kindness, like light, radiates.

  78. Erica says:

    My philosophy of beauty is you shouldn’t try to look like a supermodel. Those unrealistic expectations will only give you low self esteem and cause you to be miserable. What you should focus on is playing up your best features, becoming the best you that you can be. You were dealt the hand of having YOUR face, YOUR body…and you only get one chance to enjoy it. So play it up and live it up! Find out what looks good on YOU and go with it! Enjoy your God given beauty all day everyday!


  79. KristyQ says:

    Beauty is strength: emotional, mental, and physical.

    Letting yourself be vulnerable, but not taken advantage of.
    Believing you can handle this life, and enjoy what it offers.
    Feeling alive, every minute of every day.

  80. Rubii says:

    Their confidence.

  81. Gail says:

    Beauty is the strength inside of you that carries you through the hard times. It’s also the way you speak and act towards others and how you carry yourself no matter what the circumstances.

  82. Glosslizard says:

    What makes a person beautiful is joy! Inner joy shines through to the outside and illuminates any exterior!

    Confidence and cosmetics (applied joyfully, of course) are the two greatest enhancements to physical beauty! 😉

  83. Christina says:

    Beauty is recognizing the person you are and working with nature to create yourself.

  84. Kat C. says:

    Women like men to fall in love with men.
    But men fall in love with women who love themselves first.

    Be convinced that YOU are beautiful,
    And the world will see how beautiful you are, exactly.

  85. Shefali says:

    My philosophy on beauty is this:

    If you pay attention to what your mind, soul, and body need on the inside, you will always exude beauty on the outside because beauty comes from within.

  86. Janet F says:

    I see someone as beautiful when I get a glimpse of the real person.

    I see beauty in someone that knows how to laugh, how to enjoy life and how to give and receive the gift of joy.

    I also see beauty in someone who is aged but has the spirit and drive of a much younger person.

    Thank you!
