Beauty is an aesthetic perception of a person or object. As the saying goes, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” so what one perceives as beautiful may differ from what the next person deems beautiful. Some research shows that physical human beauty is generally perceived subconsciously based on the symmetry of a person’s facial features. Men and women have historically gone to great lengths to be perceived as beautiful.
