Is beauty subjective?

I've been wondering about this recently. My parents, grandmother, and certain people always called me handsome, but the people around me and my friends usually say I'm average... Wait a minute, isn't beauty one of the most subjective things in the end?

  • Absolutely! Emotions actually influence our perception of other people's appearance as well..
    So while someone in a magazine has to be traditionally beautiful, in real life, the way someone smiles, moves, laughs etc, can make them appear more attractive to everyone around them.

  • Yes, beauty is a very subjective thing. Do you know the phrase "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"? It literally means that beauty is subjective.

    This is why there are so many different opinions on beauty. One prefers blond hair, while other prefer brown hair. There is a lot to it, but I think that is what makes it (pun-intended) beautiful.

  • I think so: things I find beautiful may look ugly or junk to others. Things others find beautiful may look ugly or junk to me.
