Beauty Papers Issue 4 “Etiquette” is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Beauty Papers faces up to the complexities and culture of modern beauty in a freestyle commentary of wit, intellect, curiosity and insanity that sets out to inspire and unchain beauty from its formulaic shackles. A salute to uniqueness rather than conformity: individuality over predictability.
Beauty Papers Issue 4 curiously is an ode to etiquette. Something that upon the surface may seem redundant in this age? Looking closer at the ceremony and process, questioning the notions of ‘request’ or ‘imposition’ and exploring customs that have been implemented over centuries, the communal rules embedded among us, governing how we perceive beauty, are revealed in the harsh light of day.

Beauty Papers is a creative magazine from London (UK) about the culture of beauty. The world is full of relentless imagery of pseudo glamour masquerading as beauty. In reality this has nothing to do with “beauty” it is about conformity, brand and formula. Peddlers of false hopes, hierarchies, religions and pornographers have all subverted beauty for their own end. Without character and emotion, there is no beauty and it is too oppressive to present one ideal to women or men. Punk said, “screw the formula.” We say liberate creative beauty, give beauty a brave new face. There is nothing more inspiring than beauty when the chains are taken off.
