IVY, You're right. I'll have to change my definition of beauty: 5'2, very skinny, light brown skin, beautiful brown eyes, Colombian.

To me, beauty is a feeling inspired by so many things, from nature (like seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time) to people's actions. I see/feel beauty in music, a person's enthusiasm for life, a smile, a kind act or word, flowers in the spring, a sunset, art. I suppose we all have physical attributes we are attracted to and find beautiful, but I think that's different for everybody. For me, I find I am drawn most often to someone's eyes.
For a woman: Beauty is a fit body (this tells me that that person has a high regard to their health and that's beautiful to me), also effective make-up (too much says something else to me), well groomed hair (though messy hair is sometimes beautiful but not if it's wind blown).
For the mind it's all about attitude; a good attitude about love is beautiful.

To me, beauty is not something you see.... it is something you feel. A person can be very beautiful on the outside, but the sight of them can make you cringe if they are ugly on the inside. Two people can look at the same painting and only one of them may find beauty in it. It is because of the way that painting makes the person feel. Close your eyes and listen to music...you can't see it. You can hear the notes but, the beauty is there only if you feel it.
Beauty is people caring for one another. Beauty is the look in my dog's eyes that lets me know I mean the world to him. Beauty is feeling the sun on my face in a moment of peace.
Someone who is always happy no matter what they weigh. They radiate a positive attitude that you can't help but pick up on. They have that sparkle in their eyes that lets you know they are the real deal. They are kind and considerate and they make you want to be around them.

Beauty to me, changes with context. I'll be very honest, I think of beautiful men and women on mostly their physical attributes including their facial characteristics, hair, and body. For a woman this would generally mean not a lot overweight(a little plump but still shapely with curves would not necessarily detract from beauty). The qualifications for a "beautiful" man are similar, nice facial features and a good physique (not overly muscular or bulky; I don't like that).
But this context could completely change if somebody read a poem to me, or I heard a new song I liked. I could call them beautiful too, but outside this context, the first thing that comes to my mind is the way something looks, not a beautiful thought or idea, etc. Also, someone who does not have what I'd consider a physical beautiful appearance could have a beautiful personality. If this was the case, I'd be more likely to say "She has a beautiful personality" rather than to simply say "She is beautiful."
Wow, that is a loaded question. There is awesome beauty in nature that stands alone, it is what it is! Then there is true physical beauty in humans...but if that beauty is not backed up by inside beauty...kindness, caring, loving, supportive, nurturing, generous...it quickly is tainted! And if someone posses these qualities they can take on a beauty of their own. I would take an interesting looking person who is beautiful on the inside any day, over only outside beauty!

To me, beauty is who someone is inside and how they relate to others.
How do you define beauty? Is it looks? is it something from inside? To me beauty is when there is a light in someone's eyes that just shows they are happy and they just express joy from within and it shows all over their face. I think I see it more in the innocent face of a child when the whole world is of wonder to them and something as small as you waving to them or saying hi back makes them smile from ear to ear...
