According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, a foreign national is ‘an individual who is a citizen of any country other than the United States.’ For the purpose of this article, ‘international’ means people from all over the world. Neither does there exist nor is required any international standards of beauty. As it is a subjective matter of preference. What looks beautiful to one may not be so for the other. Wide eyes are considered beautiful in some countries and considered the opposite in other countries. Similar is the case of long and straight hair versus short and curly or wavy hair. All the blacks and whites and colored peoples prefer the white complexion in general all over the world. There are, however, communities wherein black and colored complexions have their own importance. In an address to his beloved, an Arab poet tells her that her beauty shall be enhanced in manifold ways if she could place a speck from his black skin on her face as a mole, and that he would look ugly if a patch of her white color was given to his black skin. Moreover, all beauty does not lie in the beautiful person because there is so much in the eyes of the viewer that makes one beautiful. This factor is greatly influenced by communication. Those who communicate beautifully, look beautiful.

If one is not a ‘born beauty,’ the lack of beauty may be made up to some extent by proper beauty care, a cheerful mood, decent communication, and beautiful attire. But for those lacking these virtues cannot make up the deficiencies even if they were ‘born beautiful.’ Beauty is marred by a careless attitude, rude behavior, indecent communication, shabby apparel, and clumsy gait. In addition to one’s physical appearance, one’s demeanor counts equally for beautiful people. Spencer in Faerie Queen tells Una through the mouth of the false Red Cross knight, ‘A dram of sweet is worth a pound of sowre.’
