Braintstorming the theme:

I really want a different approach to this and probably also a personal feeling to be included in this piece:

Overall theme:
Being a slave of society in this case of the beauty crazy and hype perfectionism:

Interesting found and input:
"Moralists hasten to condemn this 'beauty craze' as an evil influence of the West generated by multinational cosmetics and clothes companies and the evil media, forgetting conveniently that our ancient paintings, sculptures, and literature are eloquent in celebrating the ideal female form, that is proportional body features, and the much sought after hour glass figure."

Idea/Concept:
To personificiate beauty linked to society with the help of symbols. Having a (on the first sight) perfect model type beauty tower over another woman who is huddled down on the floor on her knees (low angle perspective to emphasize the supperiority of the "beauty").
On the second sight the beauty as we see her is not pefect though - a lot of subtle things will "demask" her.

The other woman is kneeling in front of a huge mirror. Despair has to show..maybe she is crying one hand partially covering her face the other hand is on the mirror - bent like a claw as if she was trying to scratch her reflected self. She is average looking but not ugly at all her shoulders seem heavy and her back is bent as under an intense burden. Both her wrists are chained to the mirror and the reflected image of her shows only a blurred and slightly deformed image of her but a clear image of the "perfect" beauty behind her (we see her without the slight hints of imperfection and symbolism on the mirror).

The mirror will show cracks as if the woman on the floor tried to smash it but there will also be hints that she actually tried to fix the mirror herself..the woman in the back offering her some tools to fix the cracks. There will also be a belt with a keyring around her waist which shows that she actually would have the tools to unlock the chains herself.

More brainstorming about the "beauty character":

Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder so it is something different to everyone else.
Problem to be solved:
How to personificate beauty including the idea of "it" to be something that changes throught out society and it's historic, ethic and religious background..

Ideas:
only show her face as skull on the actual character (but not in the mirror)
use a mask
use a full head veil
use really heavy makeup (would only cover the skin color but no the ethical facial features)

decision:
incorporate all different kind of ethical influences (asian eyes, native american hair, african incluenced nose and so on)
clothing/patterns will be reflecting all different kind of ethical influences as well.
Since each beauty trend is also matter of personal taste it doesn't really hurt if the personification is not to everyone's taste as long as it includes influences of different ethical archetypes.

Beauty has to be linked to the second character with something like a lifeline..
