I am so honored to join the company of a roster as celebrated and diverse as Covergirl’s. I can’t wait to share some of my own beauty tips with fans and work alongside Covergirl to continue empowering girls and women to celebrate their individuality.

It is well known that Beauty does not look with a good grace on the timid advances of Humour.
W. Somerset Maugham
Taught from infancy that beauty is woman’s sceptre, the mind shapes itself to the body, and roaming round its gilt cage, only seeks to adorn its prison.
Mary Wollstonecraft
Nothing can be compared to the great beauty and capabilities of a soul; however keen our intellects may be, they are as unable to comprehend them as to comprehend God, for, as He has told us, He created us in His own image and likeness.
Saint Teresa of Avila
The beauty of having your ego checked as many times as my ego was checked in Newark made me recognize how much I needed other people who were very different than me in order to get big things done.

Ecstasy and beauty are eternal.
Julie Newmar
I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty.

William Penn
I really believe that beauty comes from health – sensible eating and exercise.
Dita Von Teese
It’s unnatural to believe death usually has a beauty and a concordance and is usually a coming together of your life’s work. It leads to frustration for the patient. And it leaves grieving families convinced they did something wrong.
Sherwin B. Nuland
Beauty is indeed a good gift of God; but that the good may not think it a great good, God dispenses it even to the wicked.
Saint Augustine
Beauty is only skin deep. I think what’s really important is finding a balance of mind, body and spirit.
Jennifer Lopez
To me, ‘sexy’ is a kind of beauty, a kind of self-expression, one that is to be celebrated.
Emily Ratajkowski
Whether you come from heaven or hell, what does it matter, O Beauty!
Charles Baudelaire
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline, fortitude, and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful.
Jacqueline Bisset
Some guys say beauty is only skin deep. But when you walk into a party, you don’t see somebody’s brain. The initial contact has to be the sniffing.
James Caan
We don’t need bigger cars or fancier clothes. We need self-respect, identity, community, love, variety, beauty, challenge and a purpose in living that is greater than material accumulation.
Donella Meadows
I love glamour and artificial beauty. I love the idea of artifice and dressing up and makeup and hair.
Dita Von Teese
I think permitting the game to become too physical takes away a little bit of the beauty.
John Wooden
He was afflicted by the thought that where Beauty was, nothing ever ran quite straight, which no doubt, was why so many people looked on it as immoral.
John Galsworthy
This is the artist, then, life’s hungry man, the glutton of eternity, beauty’s miser, glory’s slave.

You’re beautiful, like a May fly.

Harriet Beecher Stowe
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
Anne Frank
People probably think I’m cute because I have dimples and am friendly and always smiling. But beauty is different. In Chinese, people say I have chi ze, which means aura or a strong sense of presentation. It’s not about my look.
Liu Wen
I accidentally entered a youth pageant when I was 14. That’s like a beauty pageant, but without the beauty. It was terrible.
Zooey Deschanel
A few years ago I was participating in a comedic ‘Inner Beauty Pageant’ and I had to figure out a talent very last-minute. I always loved Tyra Banks’s ‘We were all rooting for you!’ moment, and so I decided to lip-sync live to the six-minute entirety of it as my talent.
Bowen Yang
Endurance is nobler than strength, and patience than beauty.
John Ruskin
That’s the beauty of education, kids taking lessons out of the classroom and back into their own world where they can positively affect their family, their friends, and their greater community.
Erin Gruwell
We have magnificent brains, but we use a great deal of our brilliance to keep ourselves stuck and ignorant, to keep ourselves from not shining. We are so afraid of our beauty and radiance and brilliance because it scared the adults around us when we were children.
Patricia Sun
Beauty and fullness of tone can be achieved by having t

Beauty and fullness of tone can be achieved by having the whole orchestra play with high clarinets and a carefully selected number of piccolos.

Order is the shape upon which beauty depends.
Pearl S. Buck
Filipinos want beauty. I have to look beautiful so that the poor Filipinos will have a star to look at from their slums.
Imelda Marcos
The beauty standards had nothing to do with me in Mexico. It was such a bizarre, dire time for my hair. I was living in a small town where there was not any semblance of an African community. I’d have to take the bus to Mexico City to find a woman who could braid my hair. That was two and a half hours away.
Lupita Nyong’o
The best news of the Christian gospel is that the supremely glorious Creator of the universe has acted in Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection to remove every obstacle between us and himself so that we may find everlasting joy in seeing and savoring his infinite beauty.
John Piper
Whenever I have any beauty doubts, I always look up the Internet for solutions and remedies!
Krystle D’Souza
Plastic surgery can’t make you younger or more beautiful, because beauty is in your eyes, isn’t it? It’s in your soul; you can’t strap it on.
Sarah Parish
Inner beauty radiates from within, and there’s nothing more beautiful than when a woman feels beautiful on the inside.

Roberto Cavalli
Take care of your inner, spiritual beauty. That will reflect in your face.
Dolores del Rio
Beauty is altogether in the eye of the beholder.
Lew Wallace
The landscape painter must walk in the fields with a humble mind. No arrogant man was ever permitted to see Nature in all her beauty.
John Constable
We have been educated into believing someone else’s concept of the deity, and someone else’s standard of beauty. You have the right to practice any religion and politics in a way that best suits your freedom, your dignity, and your understanding. And once you do that, you don’t apologize.
John Henrik Clarke
Enhance and intensify one’s vision of that synthesis of truth and beauty which is the highest and deepest reality.
Ovid
We all love a bit of ‘true love conquers all,’ and when I started on ‘Poison,’ ‘Charm’ and ‘Beauty,’ that was one rule of the fairy tale formula that I didn’t want to break.
Sarah Pinborough
Wisdom I know is social. She seeks her fellows. But Beauty is jealous, and illy bears the presence of a rival.
Thomas Jefferson
Beauty is the only thing that time cannot harm. Philosophies fall away like sand, creeds follow one another, but what is beautiful is a joy for all seasons, a possession for all eternity.
Oscar Wilde
I’m in love with beauty and things and people and love and being in love, and those things, I think, on the inside, show on the outside.
Gloria Vanderbilt
Facts which at first seem improbable will, even on scant explanation, drop the cloak which has hidden them and stand forth in naked and simple beauty.
Galileo Galilei
Women who stay true to themselves are always more interesting and beautiful to me: women like Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe and Anna Magnani – women who have style, chic, allure and elegance. They didn’t submit to any standard of beauty – they defined it.
Isabella Rossellini
I’d like to grow up and be beautiful. I know it doesn’t matter, but it doesn’t hurt.
Kirsten Dunst
I am obsessed with beauty. I want everything to be perf

I am obsessed with beauty. I want everything to be perfect, and of course it isn’t. And that’s a tough place to be because you’re never satisfied.
Robert Mapplethorpe
The plainer the dress, the greater luster does beauty appear.
Edward Wood, 1st Earl of Halifax
Not to sound corny, but intelligence is big. Everything fades, and everything can be modified. But intelligence is something you can’t fake. I’m not even talking about whether you can read a thesaurus backwards. But there is a beauty in common sense.
Wale
There is hope and a kind of beauty in there somewhere, if you look for it.
H. R. Giger
Beauty is in the character of a person. It’s about having an interesting face and about what’s inside. Anyone can take a good picture.
Patrick Demarchelier
Beauty is also submitted to the taste of time, so a beautiful woman from the Belle Epoch is not exactly the perfect beauty of today, so beauty is something that changes with time.
Karl Lagerfeld
Beauty, sweet love, is like the morning dew, Whose short refresh upon tender green, Cheers for a time, but till the sun doth show And straight is gone, as it had never been.
Samuel Daniel
Beauty is not caused. It is.

Art is beauty, the perpetual invention of detail, the choice of words, the exquisite care of execution.
Theophile Gautier
As soon as beauty is sought not from religion and love, but for pleasure, it degrades the seeker.
Annie Dillard
Really, at the end of the day, the only thing you can control is yourself; the only person you can truly educate is yourself. You have to redefine what beauty is to you so you can’t be affected by what people are saying.
Rupi Kaur
You, too, women, cast away all the cowards from your embraces; they will give you only cowards for children, and you who are the daughters of the land of beauty must bear children who are noble and brave.
Giuseppe Garibaldi
The waving of a pine tree on the top of a mountain – a magic wand in Nature’s hand – every devout mountaineer knows its power; but the marvelous beauty value of what the Scotch call a breckan in a still dell, what poet has sung this?
John Muir
The thing about organic farming is that the produce will not look the same. Your tomato will not resemble the rich red one from the textbook, and that’s the beauty of it.
R. Madhavan
People tend not to use this word beauty because it’s not intellectual – but there has to be an overlap between beauty and intellect.
Tadao Ando
The beauty of my journey is that it’s always been pretty unpredictable, so stay tuned.
Andreja Pejic
When you feel great, you emanate a certain energy that translates as beautiful. I don’t care if you have the standard beauty or not; it’s that X-factor that comes through, and the basis of that is good health.
Christie Brinkley
This great country, this India, is woven of the rich individual strands of our regions, languages, religions, traditions, and communities through the ages. Yet its vibrant beauty can be seen only as a whole, a single seamless fabric, much greater than the sum of all the strands.
Sonia Gandhi
My idea of beauty is somebody that doesn’t have to try too much, someone who is effortless and fresh.
Jessica Ennis-Hill
My definition of beauty is happiness. I believe that when you are happy, it shines through and makes you a more attractive and beautiful person!
Bianca Balti
For, when with beauty we can virtue join, We paint the semblance of a form divine.
Matthew Prior
The difference between Marilyn Monroe and the early Pamela Anderson is not that great. What’s amazing is that the taste of American men and international tastes in terms of beauty have essentially stayed the same. Styles change, but our view of beauty stays the same.
Hugh Hefner
Baseball loyalists cite the game’s legendary numbers – 300 wins, 500 homers, 3,000 hits – as evidence of the sport’s elegance, beauty, and gravitas. What no one mentions is how wretched and painful it is to actually watch a former star gasp and sputter his way toward a legendary number.
Stephen Rodrick
There is a kind of beauty in imperfection.
Conrad Hall
People say I am the king of painful shoes. I don’t want to create painful shoes, but it is not my job to create something comfortable. I try to make high heels as comfortable as they can be, but my priority is design, beauty and sexiness. I’m not against them, but comfort is not my focus.
Christian Louboutin
Well, to be frank I like natural beauty. Not artificial.
Abhinav Shukla
Pay attention to the beauty surrounding you.
Anne Lamott
The dull routine of our daily job takes on a new significance, assumes a beauty and importance undreamt of before, if we consider it from the angle of service to God.
Godfrey Winn
The beauty of the horror genre is that you can smuggle in these harder stories, and the genre comes with certain demands, but mostly you need to find the catharsis in whatever story you’re telling. What may be seen as a deterrent for audiences in one genre suddenly becomes a virtue in another genre.
Ari Aster
What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.
Gertrude Jekyll
For thousands of years, human beings have been obsessed

For thousands of years, human beings have been obsessed with beauty, truth, love, honor, altruism, courage, social relationships, art, and God. They all go together as subjective experiences, and it’s a straw man to set God up as the delusion. If he is, then so is truth itself or beauty itself.
Deepak Chopra
I heard the old, old, men say ‘all that’s beautiful drifts away, like the waters.’
William Butler Yeats
The expression of beauty is in direct ratio to the power of conception the artist has acquired.
Gustave Courbet
I may be old-fashioned. But I believe there is such a thing as a search for beauty – a delight in the nice things in the world. And I don’t think one should have to apologise for it.
Saul Leiter
It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Today I see beauty everywhere I go, in every face I see, in every single soul.

Hold fast to youth and beauty.

Max Eastman
And beauty immortal awakes from the tomb.
James Beattie
Sex and beauty are inseparable, like life and consciousness. And the intelligence which goes with sex and beauty, and arises out of sex and beauty, is intuition.
D. H. Lawrence
The real beauty of it – key to my life was playing key chords on a banjo. For somebody else it may be a golf club that mom and dad put in their hands or a baseball or ballet lessons. Real gift to give to me and put it in writing.
Vince Gill
I think Sydney has so much natural beauty; it’s just a beautiful city.
Flume
When I was a seminarian, I was dazzled by a girl I met at an uncle’s wedding. I was surprised by her beauty, her intellectual brilliance… and, well, I was bowled over for quite a while.
Pope Francis
You are a human being and are allowed to be imperfect, and you are allowed to be flawed. There is a lot of beauty in your imperfections, in your uniqueness.
Ileana D’Cruz
The ever-renewed instances of beauty and fairness passing over the faces of the beings in the universe show that they are shadows of the manifestations of an Eternal Beauteous One.
Said Nursi
It is dangerous for mortal beauty, or terrestrial virtue, to be examined by too strong a light. The torch of Truth shows much that we cannot, and all that we would not, see.
Samuel Johnson
If you don’t die of thirst, there are blessings in the desert. You can be pulled into limitlessness, which we all yearn for, or you can do the beauty of minutiae, the scrimshaw of tiny and precise. The sky is your ocean, and the crystal silence will uplift you like great gospel music, or Neil Young.
Anne Lamott
Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them.
David Hume
Beauty and femininity are ageless and can’t be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won’t like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it’s based on femininity.
Marilyn Monroe
My duty is to try to reach beauty. Cinema is emotion. When you laugh you cry.
Roberto Benigni
Beauty is everywhere a welcome guest.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Faith goes out through the window when beauty comes in at the door.
George Edward Moore
It’s sad when girls think they don’t have anything going on except being pretty.
Keri Russell
Through loyalty to the past, our mind refuses to realize that tomorrow’s joy is possible only if today’s makes way for it; that each wave owes the beauty of its line only to the withdrawal of the preceding one.
Andre Gide
Here I sit, beneath the large window of a first-floor Georgian flat, exploring the corridors of my sordid imagination for comedic words of beauty.
Matt Roper
Some people would claim that things like love, joy and beauty belong to a different category from science and can’t be described in scientific terms, but I think they can now be explained by the theory of evolution.
Stephen Hawking
Beauty and the devil are the same thing.
Robert Mapplethorpe
Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
Franz Kafka
I believe that children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside.
Whitney Houston
Blues and soul and jazz music has so much pain, so much beauty of raw emotion and passion.
Christina Aguilera
The idea of the beauty of diversity came from just growing up where I grew up. Los Angeles is a very big city – there’s Little Ethiopia, Little Armenia, Little Tokyo, Chinatown, there’s African-Americans, Latinos, Europeans.
Kamasi Washington
It is not the beauty of a building you should look at;

It is not the beauty of a building you should look at; its the construction of the foundation that will stand the test of time.
David Allan Coe
If you think beauty pageants are all about perfections, then I am sorry to say, it is not like that.
Harnaaz Sandhu
I’m tired of all this nonsense about beauty being skin deep. That’s deep enough. What do you want, an adorable pancreas?
Jean Kerr
People don’t associate red hair, pale skin, and freckles with beauty.
Shirley Manson
Beauty is perfect in its imperfections, so you just have to go with the imperfections.
Diane von Furstenberg
Though beauty gives you a weird sense of entitlement, it’s rather frightening and threatening to have others ascribe such importance to something you know you’re just renting for a while.
Candice Bergen
No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.
John Donne
You, Eternal Trinity, are my Creator, and I am the work of Your hands, and I know through the new creation which You have given me in the blood of Your Son, that You are enamored of the beauty of Your workmanship.
Catherine of Siena
Black beauty – he’s a dark horse.
Tim Vine
The past itself, as historical change continues to accelerate, has become the most surreal of subjects – making it possible… to see a new beauty in what is vanishing.
Susan Sontag
I don’t have any beauty shop memories. I remember the barber shop.
Jenifer Lewis
I love fashion, beauty, glamour. It’s the mark of civilisation.
David LaChapelle
I think every single imperfection adds to your beauty. I’d rather be imperfect than perfect.
Sonam Kapoor
People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
The beauty of dystopia is that it lets us vicariously experience future worlds – but we still have the power to change our own.
Ally Condie
When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.
John Muir
The real sin against life is to abuse and destroy beauty, even one’s own even more, one’s own, for that has been put in our care and we are responsible for its well-being.
Katherine Anne Porter
A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.
Aldo Leopold
Once you go inside and weed through the muck, you will find the real beauty, the truth about yourself.
Lindsay Wagner
Beauty breeds beauty; truth triggers truth. The cure for writer’s block is therefore to read.
Matt Haig
Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
Louisa May Alcott
Vampires have always held a very seductive kind of lore and have always been some variety of attractive, whether it’s attractiveness that’s born of just the physical attributes that they have – this kind of ethereal beauty or translucent pallor – or whether it is more to do with the way they carry themselves.
Colin Farrell
Beauty always promises, but never gives anything.
Simone Weil
I find, in being black, a thing of beauty: a joy; a strength; a secret cup of gladness.
Ossie Davis
Mascara can definitely be one of the hardest parts of the beauty routine. Nothing is worse than when you are applying your mascara, and you’ve worked an hour on the most flawless blended eye shadow, and with one slip of the finger, your mascara is all over your face.
James Charles
That’s part of the beauty of being an actress: you get to explore different facets of what it is to be a human being and what it is to explore different personalities, and actually, that’s one of the things I love about it.
Anna Gunn
We all have our imperfections. But I’m human, and you know, it’s important to concentrate on other qualities besides outer beauty.
Beyonce Knowles
I always loved aesthetics. Not particularly fashion, but an idea of beauty.
Miuccia Prada
I despise women wearing too much makeup. It hides their actual beauty.
Sushant Singh Rajput
I tried for a while to be an agricultural worker and was hopelessly bored. I would stand around in heaps of manure and sing about the beauty of the work I wasn’t doing.
Theodore Bikel
As we grow old, the beauty steals inward.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
My biggest beauty tip would be exfoliation, exfoliation

My biggest beauty tip would be exfoliation, exfoliation, exfoliation! After a lifetime of almost no breakouts, I started having some pretty embarrassing ones and learned that if you don’t exfoliate, your skin has a hard time shedding the old skin and therefore clogs your pores and causes zits.
Amanda Crew
Especially as a title-holder, you can do great things with charities, because people suddenly care about what you have to say. I wanted to make a difference, which is why I created the Queen of the Universe pageant. I want to change all of those stigmas in the beauty pageant world.
Joyce Giraud
Beauty is that which is simultaneously attractive and sublime.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
The value of beauty and inspiration is very much underrated, no question. But I want to be clear: I’m not trying to be anyone’s savior. I’m just trying to think about the future and not be sad.
Elon Musk
For me, the beauty of a person is a matter of the whole package. You have to look at the whole thing, not just a matter of outward appearance or whatever. It has to do with one’s character, personality, upbringing and so on.
Gong Li
I always say you can never be extravagant with beauty. Beauty is God made real. Beauty is life.
Imelda Marcos
Inner beauty should be the most important part of improving one’s self.
Priscilla Presley
In the central place of every heart, there is a recording chamber; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, you are young.
Samuel Ullman
Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man.
Edward Steichen
It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony.
Benjamin Britten
When virtue and modesty enlighten her charms, the lustre of a beautiful woman is brighter than the stars of heaven, and the influence of her power it is in vain to resist.
Akhenaton
The beautiful remains so in ugly surroundings.
Malcolm de Chazal
I’m no natural beauty. If I’m gonna have any looks at all, I’m gonna have to create them.
Dolly Parton
As a busy working mom I’m always pressed for time, so a quick and easy beauty routine is key!
Angela Kinsey
Beauty makes idiots sad and wise men merry.
George Jean Nathan
Cherish sunsets, wild creatures and wild places. Have a love affair with the wonder and beauty of the earth.
Stewart Udall
With a great poet the sense of Beauty overcomes every other consideration, or rather obliterates all consideration.
John Keats
Beauty is in the character of a person. It’s about having an interesting face and about what’s inside. Anyone can take a good picture.
Patrick Demarchelier
The Labour party has, from the beginning, been made up of diverse factions; that’s its beauty – asking it to become cohesive is like trying to find one shampoo that will care for the hair of everybody in Angelina Jolie’s house.
Frankie Boyle
At an early age I discovered the beauty in pictures in ‘Vogue’ magazine and Ebony magazine, and I would read ‘The New York Times.’ I had to make my own world within my world because I was an only child.
Andre Leon Talley
There is a beauty in nature and culture that we no longer have access to. Those things you can’t forget, you embroider… The further you tell, the further you travel from truth, which means, of course, that literature is a lie.
W. G. Sebald
Beauty is but a flower, which wrinkles will devour.
Thomas Nashe
There is beauty in everything.
Winnie Harlow
Coming from a pageant title that celebrates diversity, I’ve come to appreciate all kinds of beauty.
Pia Wurtzbach
The beauty about the playoffs is how you make an adjustment, how you come back game-to-game, and to be locked in and focused to win.
Tobias Harris
Beauty may be skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone.
Redd Foxx
I get to escape this crazy world that I live in. I think that’s the true beauty of running.
Bretman Rock
Beauty and folly are old companions.
Benjamin Franklin
It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance… and I know of no substitute whatever for the force and beauty of its process.
Henry James
He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter.
John Burroughs
There is no real beauty without some slight imperfection.
James Salter
Because beauty isn't enough, there must be something mo

Because beauty isn’t enough, there must be something more.
Eva Herzigova
I want, of course, peace, grace, and beauty. How do you do that? You work for it.
Studs Terkel
French women famously take care over their appearance, but this wasn’t instilled in me as I grew up. I was taught that beauty comes from different places, from the inside and from the outside.
Sonia Rykiel
Old hands soil, it seems, whatever they caress, but they too have their beauty when they are joined in prayer. Young hands were made for caresses and the sheathing of love. It is a pity to make them join too soon.
Andre Gide
Perhaps the mission of an artist is to interpret beauty to people – the beauty within themselves.
Langston Hughes
‘Handsome’ means many things to many people. If people consider me handsome, I feel flattered – and have my parents to thank for it. Realistically, it doesn’t hurt to be good-looking, especially in this business.
Richard Chamberlain
And for me, the real world involves everything: risk, danger, beauty, energy, all we meet with in the real world.
Christo
What finally is beauty? Certainly nothing that can be calculated or measured. It is always something imponderable, something that lies between things.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
I’m not super-polite or civil – I try to be civil, but I’m not into Seattle’s niceties, and I’m not hugely wired into Seattle’s natural beauty.
David Shields
I like to think that today is the best day of my life and tomorrow will be the next best day of my life. And if you think that way, you’re living for the beauty of today.
Conrad Anker
Do not waste time dreaming of great faraway opportunities; do the best you can where you are. Open your petals of power and beauty and fling out the fragrance of your life in the place that has been assigned to you.
Orison Swett Marden
There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.
Francis Bacon
Rare is the union of beauty and purity.
Juvenal
Beauty is about what’s inside us, loving who we are and nurturing that. Outward beauty can really blossom from there.
Connie Britton
I believe love at first sight is possible. Centuries of literature and art and beauty has been dedicated to that idea, so who am I to argue, even if I’ve never experienced it?
Maggie Grace
I am an unconventional beauty. I grew up in a high school where if you didn’t have a nose job and money and if you weren’t thin, you weren’t cool, popular, beautiful. I was always told that I wasn’t pretty enough to be on television.
Lea Michele
Natural beauty really entices men. They will tell you this time and time again, and studies consistently prove it.
Helen Fisher
I like to embrace natural beauty. I try to get at least 8 hours of sleep, drinking a lot of water and exercising.
Tia Mowry
Art evokes emotion. It doesn’t have to be a thing of beauty.
Eli Broad
Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars – mere globs of gas atoms. I, too, can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more?
Richard P. Feynman
I think exercise tests us in so many ways, our skills, our hearts, our ability to bounce back after setbacks. This is the inner beauty of sports and competition, and it can serve us all well as adult athletes.
Peggy Fleming
An image of the Earth, its landscapes, directly affects people. The beauty of the Earth creates enormous emotion, and through that emotion, you can transmit knowledge and raise consciousness.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand
To me, teamwork is the beauty of our sport, where you have five acting as one. You become selfless.
Mike Krzyzewski
We have received a heritage of craftsmanship, of aesthetics, of taste, of identity. Our brands have the beauty to preserve and perpetuate it.
Antoine Arnault
There is art and beauty and power in the primal images of fantasy.
Guillermo del Toro
What a man does for pay is of little significance. What he is, as a sensitive instrument responsive to the world’s beauty, is everything!
H. P. Lovecraft
And for me, the real world involves everything: risk, danger, beauty, energy, all we meet with in the real world.
Christo
Everybody does what she needs. And if you want plastic surgery, and then you feel better, why not? There is no law. I’ve nothing against using something to help your beauty – but do it in a good way, with intelligence.
Monica Bellucci
