beauty is really in the eyes of the beholder, each person has a different sense of beauty.
i thought and was taught to think so (in a webpage related way) that beauty had more to do with the symmetry of a product or item.
wikipedia entry to symmetry
Symmetry generally conveys two primary meanings. The first is an imprecise sense of harmonious or aesthetically-pleasing proportionality and balance;  such that it reflects beauty or perfection. The second meaning is a precise and well-defined concept of balance or "patterned self-similarity" that can be demonstrated or proved according to the rules of a formal system: by geometry, through physics or otherwise.
this is something i agree with and apply as a basis of beauty.
take Britney Spears for one, she is quite beautiful no matter how she acts and it can be proven such with a frontal shot.
this is done by cutting a person's face in half and mirror it to the other side, if the final product is still the same face then that person is symmetrically pleasing and can be considered generally attractive to the population.
i would like to put this to the test.
there are many of us on this forum who argue over the beauty of certain actress and if you really do believe them to be so i would like to ask you to do this simple test.
the pictures you use have to be frontal shots without any tilting and best if they don't smile. the bodies can be off but its the face we're looking at.
i have done a few to show the results...these actresses aren't exactly my fav but i do feel they are pretty in their own rite. before and after shots.
