What are the Prerequisites of having a beautiful face? 1. The Contrast and vividness of Skin Color. What combinations are more intensified from dark skin to light skin? Most faces with bright eyes, darker skin presents a vivid contrast – Faces with light skin and dark eyes give a striking contrast. Dark eyes with Dark skin the difference is intensified by color, Light skin with bright eyes is increased by receding light tones. Your skin is the canvas on which your facial features translate its beauty. 2. The congruence of facial features in the front of the head where the eyes, nose, lips, chin, cheeks, forehead all in alliance with each other giving a staggering computation of facial beauty in a combination of aesthetic perfection in harmony together. It is your facial features that make your face attractive, not your skin color. 3. The Symmetry (1.618) in numbers, the Greeks believed that perfect symmetry was responsible for the attractiveness of a face, and that attractive faces were closer to the beauty ratio of 1.618. Universal Attractiveness. That brings me to what is “Universal Attractiveness” which is determined through nations, cultures, and eras which is common denominators in both female and male attractiveness-
Females: Big eyes, small nose, full lips, narrow jawline, youthful appearance, thick hair, an hourglass figure.
Males: thick Eyebrows, little eyes, a more large nose, tanned skin, prominent jawline, and a V-shaped body.
Even with defining what is really beautiful, it is a fact that beauty is Subjective. It is based on opinions or feelings rather than on facts or evidence. This subjectivity can translate into the phrase “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” this analogy goes far beyond theory where science bases beauty strictly on the approach the eye gate is the final verdict on what it viewed as physical attractiveness through personal thought, reasoning or cultural influence. In general, beauty is beauty, but aesthetic attractiveness can be different many things are perceived as beautiful can vary from place to era and culture.
Let’s face it we can’t choose our parents, so genetics definitely plays a part in what we look like. Genetics is what we inherit from our parents or grandparents. Our eye color, skin color, even the size of our feet are related to a genetic thread passed to us through our genes. Genetics is the study of genes, heredity, and genetic variation in living organisms. It is generally considered a field of biology. Biology. The science of heredity, dealing with resemblances and differences of related bodies resulting from the interaction of their genes and the environment. Genes – the basic physical unit of heredity; a linear sequence of nucleotides along a segment of DNA that provides the coded instructions for synthesis of RNA, which, when translated into protein, leads to the expression of hereditary character. Genetics definitely plays a part in how attractive we are.
Every FACE on the planet has at least one attractive feature, that is not an opinion, assumption, or personal belief.
What is it about a face (the archetype of beauty) that makes you want to look at it intently, judge its attractiveness, and analyze every feature? The pulchritude of perfection is the face which is definitely the frontline of beauty, your advertisement, your selling point it is considered the most beautiful most alluring part of the body, even more so, than the human body. Over 82% voted that having a pretty face is more desirable than a nice toned body. There are features of the face that contributes to its overall attraction:
The window of the soul. The eyes are the most durable emotion conveyor of the entire face they project deep emotion, whether sadness or empathy, sincere interest, sensuality, innocence, or project a particular flirtatious nature. The pigmentation of the iris varies from light brown to black, depending on the concentration of melanin in the iris pigment epithelium.
The Eyelashes these tiny long fibers that stick from our eyelids can make your eyes more alluring while giving you a very youthful look that beautifies the eyes.
The eyebrows define the eyes as the umbrella of the eyes; they represent the whole look of the eye. The eyebrows are the most defining part of the overall look of the face, especially the sight. The eyebrow is an area of thick, delicate hairs above the eye that follows the shape of the lower margin of the brow ridges.
A nose must reflect overall harmony and proportion concerning the other features on the face as a whole; it is the centerpiece of the face. The right nose shape is a highly coveted part of the face. The visible part of the human nose is the protruding from the real face it bears the nostrils which are needed for the sense of smell. The shape of the nose is determined by genetics. It distinguishes people apart from cultures.
The Lips The most beautiful part of the face it defines the sexuality of the face a strong focal point as the human eye. Full lips are much to be desired for a beautiful look. Lips are a visible body part of the face. Lips are soft, mobile, and serve as the entryway for food and drink as well as a way to communicate. Human lips are a tactile sensory organ and can be erogenous when used in kissing and other acts of intimacy.

The Beauty Characteristics of the Nations
Ancient Egyptian beauty Queen Nefertiti was like no other with her long braided hair that framed her head, exquisite bone structure, her deep dark eyes lined with black kohl eyeliner, café au lait skin color, symmetrical face, and a long neck. Nefertiti was the essence of Egyptian beauty. In Greek mythology, the presence of beauty far leads us, mortals, back to a time where ancient Greek beauty often veered as demigods. Popular statues like “ the Judgment of Paris”, in Greek mythology was the first beauty contest which featured the three most beautiful goddesses of Olympus–Aphrodite, Hera, and Athena–for the prize of a golden apple addressed to “the fairest” , Paris was called to judge the three goddesses, the first beauty contest. This contest closely mimics that of today beauty pageants. Every nation, people. Or race. Has its distinctive patterns of features that make them unique and recognizable to the populous. There are no two people alike, like our fingerprint and eyeball patterns we are all different. Our uniqueness was created by the Most High God

Our appearance is what makes us unique as individuals. Even though we are unique, specific characteristics such as jaw placement and forehead shape determine face shape. There are six different face shapes: Oval face shape, Heart-Shaped face shape, Pear-Shaped face shape, square face shape, Round face shape, and Long face shape. 1. Oval Face Shape: This is considered the perfect face shape because it is symmetrical. An oval face shape will have more full cheekbones and then narrow down to the jawline and chin. Oval face shape will also be narrow up towards the forehead.2. Heart-Shaped Face Shape: A Heart-Shaped face is very unique. It will be broader at the forehead and then taper into a small, narrow chin. This face shape is called Triangle Shape. 3. Pear-Shaped Face Shape: A Pear-Shapes face will be more full at the cheeks and jaw but have a narrow forehead.4. Square Face Shape: A Square look is widespread. It will be equally full at the forehead, cheeks, and jawline. 4. Square Face Shape: A Square face is ubiquitous. It will be equally full at the forehead, cheeks, and jawline. 5. Round Face Shape: Round face shapes are fuller and will usually look younger than they are. It will have around the forehead and a rounded chin, with wide, full cheeks. 6. Long Face Shape: A Long face shape is similar to an oval face shape but has higher cheekbones and a high forehead.
Societies today adorn their faces with makeup, the process of hiding facial imperfections or flaws but also An adornment is generally an accessory or ornament worn to enhance the beauty or status of the wearer. They are often worn to embellish, enhance, or distinguish the wearer, and to define cultural, social, or religious status within a specific community. When worn to show the economic situation, the items are often either rare or prohibitively expensive to others. Adornments are usually colorful and worn to attract attention. Facial Adornment could be for any country, traditionally or otherwise, or even the topical tattoo to enhance the skin’s appearance, or maybe the wearing of jewelry to enhance what the creator, the Creator has given us genetically.
They have a long history, around the world, from feathers or bone to modern accessories, such as jewelry. Items of adornment are also used by warriors, and by other members of the military to show rank or achievement. Either way, to each as own when in terms of any facet of adornment. I know in the east, the wear of tiaras, crowns and other symbols for a profession of royalty, as is in India, the wear of nose earrings, is quite common. In Africa, a lot of tribal rituals involve face paint. In most societies, the wearing of makeup from foundation to the coloring of eyelids is quite common to enhance the beauty of the face and eyes. So throughout the world, there is a form of facial adornment conducive to the times, cultures, customs, traditions, and societies. The facial decoration is in the styles of makeup, earrings, paint, tattoos, and other facial ornamentation.
Breakdown of the FACE.
1. The Eyes The window of the soul. The eyes are the strongest emotion conveyor of the entire face they project deep emotion whether sadness or empathy, deep interest, sensuality, innocence, or project a certain flirtatious nature. The pigmentation of the iris varies from light brown to black, depending on the concentration of melanin in the iris pigment epithelium (located on the back of the iris), the melanin content within the iris stroma (located at the front of the iris), and the cellular density of the stroma. The appearance of blue, green, as well as hazel eyes, results from the Rayleigh scattering of light in the stroma, a phenomenon similar to that which accounts for the blueness of the sky. Neither blue nor green pigments are ever-present in the human iris or ocular fluid. Eye color is thus an instance of structural color and varies depending on the lighting conditions, especially for lighter-colored eyes.
2. The Eyebrows The eyebrows define the eyes the umbrella of the eyes they define the whole look of the eye. The eyebrows are the most defining part of the overall look of the face especially the eye. The eyebrow is an area of thick, delicate hairs above the eye that follows the shape of the lower margin of the brow ridges of some mammals. Their main function is hypothesized to prevent sweat, water, and other debris from falling down into the eye socket, but they are also important to human communication and facial expression. It is not uncommon for people – women in particular – to modify their eyebrows by means of hair addition, removal, makeup, tattoo, or piercings.
3. The Nose A beautiful nose must reflect overall harmony and proportion in relation to the other features and the face as a whole it is the centerpiece of the face. The visible part of the human nose is the protruding part of the face that bears the nostrils. The shape of the nose is determined by the ethmoid bone and the nasal septum, which consists mostly of cartilage and which separates the nostrils. On average the nose of a male is larger than that of a female.
4. The Lips The most sensual part of the face defines the sexuality of the face as a strong focal point as the human eye. Full lips are much to be desired for a beautiful face. Lips are a visible body part of the face. Lips are soft, movable, and serve as the opening for food intake and in the articulation of sound and speech. Human lips are a tactile sensory organ and can be erogenous when used in kissing and other acts of intimacy.
5. The Cheeks They contour the entire face, they are the structure that holds the face together when they are defined or full, in some faces they are more defined. Cheeks) constitute the area of the face below the eyes and between the nose and the left or right ear. They may also be referred to as jowls. “Buccal” means relating to the cheek. The area between the inside of the cheek and the teeth and gums is called the buccal pouch or buccal cavity and forms part of the mouth.
6. The chin or jawline Prominent jawline in men is universal and considers most attractive, in the female a small chin is much to be desired and most attractive. The chin is the lowermost part of the face. It tends to be more pointed and triangular in human females, while more square-shaped in human males.
7. The Neck The grand part that holds up the face, it is lengthy in statue utterly divine in its objective to define the face. The neck is the part of the body that distinguishes the head from the shoulders blades.
A skin that glistens in the sun, ranging from satin black to golden brown that is Melanated skin. Melanin is organic crystallized carbon, it actually runs through your blood, ravages your skin and was created by the Most High God. The dark nations possess it, although, they don’t want to own it, the white people try to put it in a bottle to manufacture it through tanning sprays and creams.
All photographs are the property of there respective owners.
Melanin, which is Carbon, any of a class of insoluble pigments, found in all forms of animal life, that account for the dark color of skin.
According to Dr. Francis Cress Welling on pg 205, in her book “The Isis Papers:, stated, The phrase “Golden Fleece” is made up of two words associated with Black people: “gold,” denoting black or brown skin and “fleece,” denoting lambs wool or kinky hair. The search for the Golden Fleece becomes the search for melanin. J.D. Cirlot’s dictionary of symbols says that the Golden Fleece ” is one of the symbols denoting the conquest of the impossible or the ultra=reasonable.” For white-skinned peoples, it is impossible to produce melanin or golden brown or black.
There is a golden hue that radiates out from dark skin, it is present no matter how dark the hue is.
The subject of color to most is probably somewhat idiosyncratic. What we think scientifically and historically about the origins of ‘race’ and the complex ways that skin color has influenced our perception of one another. The effects of colorism and racism on society within various communities. Though modern conceptions of ‘white beauty’ have evolved and become progressively more artificial in recent decades, which have lead people to believe that having melanated skin is a curse and not a blessing. I must admit that it was very cathartic and endearing for me to write on this topic of “melanin.” Although, I didn’t want to appear to be a narcissist or presumptuous. I think when I first actually, thought of my skin color was when a friend compared me to a sunset, amazed at how the golden hues, brown, an orangey glow radiated from my skin. While others, always assumed that I was wearing pantyhose on my legs or foundation on my face, sorry no such thing that is the power of melanin. I believe that physical beauty is measured by your features and symmetry, not skin color. It’s really in the eye of the beholder literally. I have traveled the world, there are much beautiful dark and light woman the world over, all possess one common thing – their facial features are harmony together. So the theory that your skin color makes you attractive only is a fallacy. Not to be believed. The whole premise of a debate of light vs. dark is unsettling, ignorant, and not edifying the unity between women of all shades of brown. Willie Lynch created a prevalent method for teaching slaves divisive behavior and through colonization people around the world have adopted these self – denigrating issues that white skin is the best and anything that deviates from that theory is not good. Lynch supported division to keep the light slaves against the dark slaves to prevent rebellion and unity among blacks. Still, today that residue from the past has conditioned people around the world to adopt “white skin” as the best. This is a wide world problem not just by black people but many nations face this reality daily in America, India, Africa, Latin American, South America, Brazil, Dominican Republic, the West Indies, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Cuba just to name a few. In these countries the lighter you are the more beautiful you are perceived as, the smarter, and the nicer. The Darker you are the more you are perceived as a menace to society, evil, and ugly. These stereotypes are far from the truth, people of color are still suffering from strong delusional thinking based on skin color. Most feel that a white person has attained a status, reached a level of success because they are the progenitors of the European standard of beauty that dark-skinned people could never measure up to. As for the white (Aryan/Nordic) men and women, they don’t have to try, they woke up in privilege. They have been born this way. They have become gods in their own eyes.
Two benefits of having Melanated skin:
Photo credit: blackexcellence.com
1. BLACK DON’T CRACK! The most celebrated quality of possessing melanated skin is its uncanny ability to be anti-aging, whereas, dark skin shows less visible signs of aging when compared to white skin. Dark-skinned people tend to look younger than their chronological age.
2. Protection from the sun, melaninated skin has a natural SPF.
The Fitzpatrick scale (above) is a numerical classification that was created in the 1970s by Thomas Fitzpatrick, an American dermatologist. The study of human skin color that underlines the categories of skin color where it relates to how it measures in terms of being exposed to the sun. It identifies that darker skin is less likely to develop skin cancer when being exposed to the sun.
In his article, “Why the sun is good for Afrikan people”, Dr. Kwame Osei says,
This lack of melanin cover explains why Europeans/White people especially the albino whites burn in the sun and in the worst circumstances turn pink and get skin cancer- hence why they need to wear sunscreen because their white skin has been damaged by the sun’s UV rays because their pineal gland, an organ between the eyes has been calcified. What this means in effect that they cannot generate energy from the sun’s UV rays due to their lack of melanin. Melanin in its most concentrated form is black. It is black because its chemical structure will not allow any energy to escape once that energy has come in contact with it. This gives us an insight and shows that melanin dominant people do not require the same amount of minerals and nutrients in their diet as people with less melanin.(modernghana.com)
Nearly all black and brown skins are beautiful, but a beautiful white skin is rare. Where dark complexions are massed, they make the whites look bleached-out, unwholesome, and sometimes frankly ghastly. I could notice this as a boy, down South in the slavery days before the war. The splendid black satin skin of the South African Zulus of Durban seemed to me to come very close to perfection. The white man’s complexion makes no concealments. It can’t. It seemed to have been designed as a catch-all for everything that can damage it. Ladies have to paint it, and powder it, and cosmetic it, and diet it with arsenic, and enamel it, and be always enticing it, and persuading it, and pestering it, and fussing at it, to make it beautiful; and they do not succeed. But these efforts show what they think of the natural complexion, as distributed. As distributed it needs these helps. The complexion which they try to counterfeit is one which nature restricts to the few–to the very few. To ninety-nine persons, she gives a bad complexion, to the hundredth a good one. The hundredth can keep it–how long? Ten years, perhaps. The advantage is with the Zulu, I think. He starts with a beautiful complexion, and it will last him through. And as for the Indian brown–firm, smooth, blemishless, pleasant, and restful to the eye, afraid of no color, harmonizing with all colors and adding a grace to them all–I think there is no sort of chance for the average white complexion against that rich and perfect tint. — Mark Twain, Skin Deep – Complexions
The Black skin is not a badge of shame, but rather a glorious symbol of national greatness. — Marcus Garvey
The recipients of the phenomenon we know as “MELANIN” are the people, that are referred to as Black, Colored, African, Sub-Saharan, and African American.
In his book, “The Chemical Key to Black Greatness” American Biochemist, Carol Barnes, described melanin as, “a civilizing chemical that acts as a sedative to help keep the black human calm, relaxed, caring, creative, energetic and civilized”. Research also revealed that melanin enables black skin to actively interact with the sun, to produce Vitamin D from a biochemical substance, 7- dehydrocholesterol. The study also detected that, melanin has spiritual dynamics as well as physical, since it acts as a sensory ‘receptor’ and ‘transmitter’; communicating with cosmic energy fields in the vast universe converting light energy to sound energy and back. Dr. Richard King, MD, stated that, “melanin, by its ability to capture light and hold it in a memory mode, reveals that blackness converts light into knowledge”.

Melanin refines the nervous system in such a way that messages from the brain reach other areas of the body most rapidly in dark people, the first race. The abundance of melanin in our skin gives us genetic inferiority. We are physically stronger. Mentally more sound. Spiritually more connected. High absorption of vitamins, full-color range, taste full favor of food, and more intelligence. Melanin (Carbon) is essential to brain, nerve, organ function it can be found in every part of the body where cells are to reproduce and regenerate. Let’s not forget the anti-aging effects of melanin in dark skin, on the average a white skinned person will look much older than their black counterpart.
“ Melanin (Carbon) is the fundamental unit of the universe and exist in four forms: Cosmic, Planetary, plant kingdom (chlorophyll) and animal kingdom melanin. Melanin is black (carbon) because its chemical structure allows no energy to escape.. making black melanin the super absorber of energy and light. Melanin is found in almost every organ of body and is necessary in order for the brain and nerves to operate, the eyes to see, and the cells to reproduce. Melanin can rearrange its chemical structure to absorb all energy across the raiant energy spectrum (i.e. sunligh, Xirays, music, sound, radar, radio waves etc) The black human can charge up his/her melanin just by being in the sun or around the right type of musical sounds or other energy sources. Our body is electrical, currents of nerves sending signals through our brain daily. Melanin itself, on a philosophical plane, is a black chemical/biological door through which the life force of African spirituality passes in moving from the spirit to the material realm. You will we learn to accept and embrace the fact that Black is not only beautiful but it comes in a variety of different shades, textures, and tones; None of which is better or worse than the other. Proof of a creator? You exist and there are no copies of you anywhere. The facial features of a person of color is more pronounced than any other nation around the world. Did you know that many white people in the Americas tan their skin and are vast consumers of tanning bronzing gels etc. Just the other day I saw a white woman at my local market she was as dark as me, but with a orangey tint to her face. So with the lie that states that dark skin is less desired but the hate is more a product of self – hatred and taught behavior, then a total social preference. There is a reason we have been conditioned this way.
As has its advantages dark skin so does dark eyes which can see full color range as it is exactly it is.
My conversation with Pascal, a professional photographer from France.
Q: What is it like to work with models/people of color?
Pascal: Let me start with you.. photographing you and applying makeup to your face what a pleasure, you have the most beautiful eyes, face, and skin. Up close your so physically beautiful, physically compelling, I’m hypnotized by your good looks. Your skin always so soft, smooth and creamy like churned butter, I love your light skin color. Woman of color are the most beautiful creatures on earth, the skin is so deep and rich, they are the best to work with.
Q: Do you have a preference light or dark?
Pascal: No but in my work, the darker the girl is the more light she becomes to the camera like a rare occurrence with the view. Dark skin really is the best.
Carbon is really the correct word.. but Melanin is the black man’s ace and intelligence. Our skin has the highest amount of Melanin of all nations, also, This is the color of the Savior. And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. Revelation 1:15-17 KJV

Our Skin Basking in the hot sun for hours While becoming sun-kissed to perfection The salt of our tears raped our face As we picked cotton in the southern heat No other skin could take such a beating Like the Melanin in our skin. Our skin is just like butter burned to make you want to devour it Symbolic of the melting of dark chocolate How sweet it is Some are like coffee with milk while others are like hot chocolate Only one term to describe the beauty and dimension of the colors of our skin Resplendently Like the melanin in our skin.
Teach your children to love their darkness.

4 things the other nations COVET from us.
So they say that Angelina Jolie made our lips famous? Way before there was Angelina, there were our ancestors that possessed those ancient lumps we call lips, yes full and luscious all the way. Now today with millions of collagen injections being dished our annual for something we have been blessed with.
2. Darker Skin
Who said only white porcelain skin was all the rage with millions of dollars being spent annually on tan salons, bronzing powders, and spray tans all to achieve our sun-kissed skin.
Our melanin is a gift from the Most High God. So cherish it.
3. Our Round bottoms
It is no secret that black women are known for their big bottoms, but we were born with it. Butt implants have become the norm like brushing your teeth, and many women have become disfigured by infecting fat into their bottoms. Hmmm, wouldn’t have been nice to be born with it.
5. Black Men
Truly the most desired men by all nations. The Greatest Gift to the black woman is the black man. So what if so or you are rough around the edges but so are we black women. Everyone can see your greatness, you are our Kings. So raise and love the black woman back. The other nations may love you, but your roots are with the black woman.
5 Great things about melanin-ated people.
1. Some of the greatest Inventors and Innovators.
Despite such impressive credentials, black people are the innovators and inventors of just about everything on earth from toothpaste to electricity.
2. The Melanin in our Skin.
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, black don’t crack, that contributes to our anti-aging, but more importantly, the high concentration of melanin has its benefits such as protection from the sun and produces our Vitamin D.
3. Our hair is unique and fascinating.
Everyone else grows fur. Black hair can maintain its state, whether it be kinky, coily, relaxed, fro, or cornrows can keep its shape in the harsh climates in the world.
4. A black man body is superior, genetically stronger than that of any other race.
It has been proven that throughout history that the black man has built the constructs of building and foundations for many nations, including America through slavery, etc.
5. A black woman’s features are highly coveted.
Our skin and facial features are highly coveted by other races, such as our lips, booty, and skin. Many Nordic/Aryan races have emulated our features in mainstream media.
