I love this quote, however, I will do an article about this issue another time. As for now, when I saw this image of Christina Aguilera and her eyebrows, it got me thinking how it is a shame that it takes the media portraying something as ‘desirable’ for the masses* to see the beauty in it, when before they would not, even though it would still look the same. Thin eyebrows, for example, were all the rage a few years ago—it was one of the top trending beauty looks. As a result of that, people would laugh at thick eyebrows—they were not seen as ‘desirable’, but now it is the opposite—thick eyebrows are seen as ‘desirable’ and thin eyebrows as ‘undesirable’.
It just goes to show you, the thing that you may find ‘undesirable’, is it because you genuinely do? Or is it because it has not been popularised by the media? Or perhaps it was popularised, but it ‘expired’? And the thing you may find desirable now, if it becomes ‘expired’ by the media, would you still find it desirable? Is beauty really in the eye of the beholder or the media? Hmm…
