On being asked what one finds pretty in a girl, some might say eyes, lips, clear skin, etc. But what if I tell you that beauty is no more your opinion, it’s science.
Is beauty even an “idea” to create a perception of a woman? What classifies the standards of beauty? Is it quantifiable? How do we measure beauty?
The age-old saying goes, ‘Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder,’ but science is somewhat toppling that belief.
Scholars and practitioners of the science of cosmetics have long dealt with this question until the funda of beauty was quantified in a formula and installed on a computer.
Dr. Julian De Silva, a famous plastic surgeon, used the “Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi” and computerized mapping technique to assess physical beauty least subjectively. Golden Ratio of Beauty phi was a technique used by the Renaissance period artists to carve out their masterpieces. Thousands of years later, the mathematical formula was resurrected to measure human beauty on a scale.
