Community that discusses various facets of beauty

Every human being is fascinated with beauty on some level. It is a biological drive to recognize what is beautiful to us. We often want to surround ourselves with beauty and we go through great sacrifices to fit within our own definitions of beauty, whatever it might be.

Beauty inspires, bemuses, entertains, intimidates, intoxicates, and motivates and there are and will always be many ideas that exist to define what beauty is, whether it is defined by an individual, culture, society, nation, country, continent or the entire human race.

This is a community about beauty: the history, philosophy and psychology of beauty, beauty myths...beauty tips, beliefs, techniques, recipes, regimens, and trends...definitions, standards and perceptions of beauty...images of beauty and so forth.
