'beauty in the eye of the beholder'?

what does 'beauty in the eye of the beholder' actually mean?'beauty in the eye of the beholder'?
That beauty is subjective.

The beholder is the person who looks at the beautiful person, and beauty can only be found in their eye, i.e. only them can tell whether *they* find the person beautiful, and another person might find that same person ugly.

Unless it was a typo and you actually mean that ';beauty is in the eye of the beerholder';, which is also perfectly true.'beauty in the eye of the beholder'?
Each person sees beauty in different ways and therefore beauty is a subjective thing. A person may have a great fondness for an old, raher ugly object which has great memories for them. For that person the object would have a certain beauty, that perhaps only they would appreciate.
The phrase 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder' is dealing with

perception. It states that one subject can find something to be beautiful ( the beholder), and that another subject may not.
It means beauty is subjective. What you (the ';beholder';) finds beautiful, I (as a different ';beholder';) might not.
beauty means beauty and nothing else. if u like something , it is beutiful, if u dont like it, it might be anything, makes no diff.
