“The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order, symmetry, and limitation; and these are the greatest forms of the beautiful.” – Aristotle
The Greeks, known for their philosophical and mathematical endeavors, tried to explain all things with equations. When it comes to geometry or arithmetic, equations make sense. But can there be a way to measure beauty?
Plato spoke of the “golden proportion”, an idyllic balance of all factors. This idea permeated all facets of Ancient Greek culture, including love and beauty. When it came to true beauty, poets, artists and scholars alike agreed that one factor was key: symmetry.
A symmetrical face is scientifically proven to be beautiful. Studies show that humans, from babies to adults, respond better to a proportionate face. So what can you do if your face doesn’t add up to the right equation? For many of us, the key to finding this symmetry simply lies in the correct use of makeup.
Makeup is used for augmenting natural beauty while making up for flaws. Make-up, get it? There are so many ways to enhance certain features with a simple stroke of the makeup brush.
One of the easiest ways to create symmetry is with careful construction of the eyebrows. Eyebrows can be shaped and contoured in a way that no other part of the human face can. In other words, outside of expensive cosmetic procedures a little brow TLC is the best way to create a beautiful face. Correctly sculptured eyebrows punctuate the face and define a person’s look. They can create symmetry where it did not exist before. And with expert micropigmentation, that stunning symmetry can be permanent.
