What is the difference between natural and artificial beauty? This has been a question that has puzzled philosophers, artists, and researchers for centuries.
On the one hand, natural beauty is often seen as being more authentic and genuine. It is seen as being more in line with what is “natural” and “normal.” On the other hand, artificial beauty is often seen as being more manufactured and fake. It is seen as being more in line with what is “unnatural” and “abnormal.”
So, which one is better? There is no easy answer. Beauty is subjective, and what one person sees as beautiful may not be seen as such by someone else. That said, there are some general trends that can be observed.
In general, natural beauty is seen as being more attractive than artificial beauty. This is likely because natural beauty is seen as being more rare and unique. Artificial beauty, on the other hand, is often seen as being more common and less special.
Natural beauty is also often seen as being more timeless than artificial beauty. This is because artificial beauty often relies on trends that eventually go out of style. Natural beauty, on the other hand, tends to be more classic and enduring.
That said, there are some advantages to artificial beauty as well. One advantage is that it can be more easily achieved than natural beauty. For example, one does not need to be born with certain features to be artificially beautiful.
Another advantage of artificial beauty is that it can be more controllable than natural beauty. This means that one can more easily achieve a desired look with artificial beauty.
My research project will include a paper and an album of pictures. The paper will share what two guys imagine and think about when they picture women. Mike, my friend, and Timmy, my cousin, are the guinea pigs in this experiment. Their responses will be collected in the album.
I will also provide a research paper discussing what I found on the internet about the topic at hand, “Natural Vs. Artificial Beauty”
-What is art?
-How does art influence our perception of beauty?
-Is there a difference between natural and artificial beauty?
-How do we define beauty?
Art has been around since the beginning of time. It is a form of expression that allows us to communicate our thoughts and feelings without using words. Art can be anything from a painting to a sculpture to a performance. It is something that is created by someone with the intention of making it beautiful. Beauty, on the other hand, is something that is pleasing to the eye or the mind. It is something that makes us feel happy or peaceful.
There is a difference between natural and artificial beauty. Natural beauty is something that is found in nature, such as a sunset or a flower. Artificial beauty is something that has been created by humans, such as a painting or a sculpture. Both types of beauty can be pleasing to the eye, but artificial beauty often has more meaning behind it.
How do we define beauty? That is a difficult question to answer. Beauty is subjective, which means that what one person finds beautiful, another person may not. We each have our own individual preferences and opinions on what we deem to be beautiful.
Some people believe that art imitates life and that our perception of beauty is influenced by what we see around us. If we are constantly exposed to images of artificial beauty, then that is what we will come to find attractive. On the other hand, if we are exposed to natural beauty, then that is what we will find beautiful.
It is important to remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that there is no one definitive answer to the question. What matters most is how you feel when you look at something. If it brings you happiness or peace, then it is beautiful.
In the second half of this research project, we’ll not only explain the experiment in-depth but also give information on how much societal pressure is put on women to look like models. In our experiment, I handed both Mike and Timmy four magazines: two Mademoiselles and two Allures. Then, I asked them to go through them and rip out the pictures they would want “their women” to look like according to society’s standards.
They both had a similar reaction and said that they wanted their women to look like the models on the covers of the magazines. I then took away the magazines and gave them each a piece of paper and a pencil and told them to draw what they thought was the perfect woman.
The results were very interesting because even though they had different eyebrow shapes, facial structures, and hairstyles, both drawings had incredibly small waists, voluptuous breasts, and long legs.
I then showed them both pictures of real women and asked them which ones were more attractive: the models or the real women? They both chose the models without hesitation.
I think this goes to show that even though men may say that they want a “real woman,” they are still subconsciously influenced by the media to want women who look like models.
The album’s first half features their idea of the perfect woman. You’ll notice that most pictures are of thin, half-naked models in provactive poses. Makeup and hair is flawless on these women; not a strands out of place. Perhaps unsurprisingly, many pictures feature women who are not only half naked but also wearing undergarments.
There are also a few paintings that were done by hand and these women are in various states of undress as well. The second half of the album is a collection of what they deem as “real women.”
These pictures are not nearly as polished as the first half. The lighting isn’t as good, the makeup isn’t as perfect and the hair definitely isn’t styled. But, what these pictures do have is emotion. You can see laughter, love and even some sadness in these shots. These are candid moments that were captured and turned into art.
So, which is more beautiful? The first set of pictures or the second?
The answer is both.
Beauty comes in all forms, shapes and sizes. It’s not just about what the media tells us is beautiful. It’s about seeing the beauty in everyday life and capturing it in a way that makes you feel something.
