The idea of beauty has come a long way. Media has played a big role in defining beauty standards and what can be considered beautiful or not. Over the years, this has conditioned consumersí minds with certain predispositions towards evaluating beauty standards. This is rapidly changing with strong individual consumer point of views and ever-evolving expectations from beauty brands. Beauty is moving away from the idea of prescribed beauty to beauty that is open to many more interpretations, ideas and forms.
eYeka’s community of 370,000+ creators brings in their own unique take on beauty through the entries they submit for contests. Their unique combination of being a consumer and a creative person gives them the ability to express fresh and clutter-breaking ideas.
