FLAWLESS, NO DEFECTS
Perfection is something we all dwell and strive on but is it ever possible to be perfect? We all have our idea of what the perfect look is. I’ve never realised how my idea has changed over the years until I’ve read an article about photoshop and the media including bloggers. Media does have a large influence on the appearance and most of the time, it’s deceitful.
I exactly remember what my younger self would perceive as perfection. By younger, I mean 16-18 years old. I would have wanted pale complexion, slim face, v-shaped chin, big eyes, skinny body, a typical oriental look. At that time, I was definitely influenced by the Korean media and was constantly watching Korean dramas. Too addictive. I am currently watching one called Birth of a Beauty. Looking at the actresses now, I did wonder why I had considered that as my ultimate beauty. From 18-21, fashion bloggers were my influence – slim and look good in every clothing item. My idea is different now.
Currently, my perfect look would be a slim, toned body with boobs and a booty. I’m obsessed with the booty. Squat it out. Face wise, defined cheeks, nice eyes. I’m not sure which celebrity would fit this criterion exactly. It’s most likely bits and bobs from a variety. I know I can and cannot achieve this idea. Slim is one I cannot achieve. I have a broad structure and am starting to embrace it. The whole toned look is taking over Instagram and it has motivated me to be more healthy and exercise more. Being healthy and taking good care of it is the most important thing right now.
It’s interesting how my idea and idolising a certain type has changed over the years and how the criteria are less. The reality is, perfection cannot be achieved no matter how hard we try. We need to take genetics into consideration. Of course there is plastic surgery but that’s each to their own. In the end, obsession takes over.
What is your idea of perfection? Has it changed from when you were younger?
