So I asked an artist, actress and a makeup artist their definition of beauty.

This is what the makeup artist who is a makeup tutor and beauty editor shared.

“Beauty is everything good we have inside, that makes us different and individual…
It just needs to be discovered, recognized, expressed and celebrated.
Everyone is unique.
Everyone is capable of beauty.”

- Maria Papadopoulou, makeup artist, tutor and beauty editor of OZON Magazine.

What is your definition of beauty? How did you arrive at your personal view on it? Is beauty the same thing as the state of being attractive? Is the perfect mix of the right attributes and physical features?

What is beauty to you? Join the conversation.
