Beauty exists in the eye of the beholder, as the Aphorism goes. In truth I agree with this statement. I still to this day do not understand why it is as such that females believe that wearing a mask makes them more beautiful.
The term person derives from the Latin term persona- meaning mask or character (think actor).
I discovered some time ago that a female in make up or mask, was difficult to fall in love with. Is the initial meeting one of made up beauty or natural beauty? Does she hide the true nature of herself behind her painted lips and eye shadow? Do men fall in love with the Actress and her make-up? Or do men become moved by the nature of beauty in it's purest form?
I still have problems understanding why beautiful women paint their face with a somewhat false reality. Truth in it's purest form is Divine and Noble.
