In the 21st century, it is not only celebrities and pop culture that decide what real beauty is about. Even the average man on the street has an opinion on the topic.
Today, there is quite a complicated checklist that keeps changing depends on who the judge is.
Some say no makeup, others say moderate makeup, another category of people believe it is someone who uses makeup and goes through plastic surgery to achieve the perfection that is one.
Some say, slim. The modeling industry is replete with young men and women who are slim and it can be said to not have any place for people who are plump or curvy.
However, the average Nigerian man insists that he doesn’t want the skinny French model with glaring neck bones and long limbs. He wants his women with some flesh. Plump, curvy, not so tall and not so fat.
Some folks think dark is the true definition of beauty, others believe a little toning is close to natural skin colour.
Then there are the perfect teeth, the pretty smile, and the unblemished skin to consider. The list can go on forever.
Christian communities have a say in the matter. They believe true beauty does not come from the outside but instead is based on the inside.
This is a very unpopular opinion as many believe that beauty is outwards and a woman can be beautiful whether or not she has a foul character.
