Postby Stawrberry » 2010-08-19, 21:13

7) Moedervlek boven de lip

[flag]en[/flag] The Seven Marks of Beauty:
1) Light eyes and dark hair, or, dark eyes and light hair 2) Freckles 3) Long, curled eyelashes
4) Small gap between the teeth 5) Dimples in the cheeks 6) Almond eyes 7) Mole above the lip

i help translate, but i disagree very strongly freckles are a mark of beauty.
beauty makeups are sold all over the world for women ( and now men ) to have a smooth and relatively fair complexion, and you go "freckles" as a mark of beauty ? :hmm:

I think that on the blondish fair-skin Dutchies freckles can be very cute!

Well, I think freckles can look cute. :) Take this list with a grain of salt, it's not like you're ugly if you don't have any of these marks.

I second that. It's in fact, a mark of ugliness here. However, freckles are uncommon here.

That's generally how beauty canons are made up: unusual, rare features are considered as ugly, while common ones seem beautiful.
That's a human thing: strangeness is bad/ugly/nasty.

how right you are :-

in the best movie the world has ever known entitled "the gods must be crazy", the bushmen came across a white blond school teacher from america and tried to greet her by touching her chest, a plain normal bushmen hello greet signifying 'i mean good to your heart'. she shreiked away !

the bushmens's thoughts we communicated as :-

" she was the ugliest women he had had ever met. she was pink and looked very sick.
and she was big too ! it would take two goats to feed her ! "

you could send a beauty queen or a movie star with all seven marks of beauty ++ into bushmen land, they would undoubtedly have pity on her for being so pink !

BTW, this movie is a must watch for every human species. it is sure to have you in stiches.

Not always, Emandir: blue or light eyes are not that common here, though they are seen as a mark of beauty.

I'm sick of the overratedness of blue eyes. Really hideous people are thought to be beautiful only because of their blue eyes. See Esther Cañadas.

I'm a total fan of brown-eyed men.

BTW, a small gap between the teeth is considered ugly in my area. In fact my mother calls them 'dientes de mentiroso' (liar's teeth).

I was roughly generalizing. Of course, the colour of your eyes doesn't make you beautiful of ugly. I don't know this Esther* but I know lots of people with blue eyes that are, at best, common...

* I googled her and, oh my! You can see her skull! She's not ugly: she's hideous and frightening!

I'm a total fan of brown-eyed men.
So am I! :good4u:

BTW, a small gap between the teeth is considered ugly in my area. In fact my mother calls them 'dientes de mentiroso' (liar's teeth).
I think it's the same here. I personally hate it!

This. I have blue eyes but they're pretty common around here so no one is going to say that I'm attractive based on the color of my eyes. Personally I have a thing for guys with brown eyes and dark hair - perhaps I find them exotic somehow...

Oh, and Esther is a total cutie. She won't beat Johanna Tukiainen, though. :mrgreen:

I agree on all of this. I have blue eyes, and I get complimented on them a lot, but I hate them. I wish I had brown eyes, they'd match my hair (and I just love guys with silky chocolate colored eyes.) And the gap is considered very unattractive here as well. But who said the concepts of beauty ever made any sense?

I missed the last part: in France, we call them les dents du bonheur (the teeth of happiness) - the explanation of this is a bit long...

Plus the physical appearance is not all: someone who perfectly fits the canons of beauty can look less handsome than someone who doesn't...

I highly disagree with no. 2 and no. 7 (they're considered marks of ugliness in El Salvador), but oh well.

Does that concern only the front teeth (the upper central pair of incisors) or all teeth? The English is not clear... So I followed Emandir and translated it as if it was for all teeth (but then the English should say "small gaps between the teeth"). *confused*
