"Beauty?" by Avery P.

What makes something beautiful in our society? Magazines are covered with images of women with long legs, "beach" bodies, and perfect hair. The truth is that most of us strive to be these long-legged, toned-bodied, coifed, women. This is because the media has trained us to believe that happiness comes along with looking like these people. In the image, the word "goddess" is placed over the woman's eyes, which represents how we have become blind to reality because we are obsessed with the idea of physical perfection. The different bright colors are a reference to the excessive number of things we strive to perfect about our selves (e.g. nails, hair, and lips). As seen throughout this blog, physical beauty has remained a dominating concern for centuries.
