    not a teacher

    There are probably several more elegant ways to phrase this. Perhaps, "Veiled beauty is attractive".

    Re: covered beauty

    I think the sentence is not logical. How can you see something that is covered?
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: covered beauty

    I think it could be seen if it was covered with filmy material, but I am not a teacher.

    Given Untaught's nationality, I suspect he means a niqab.

    Re: covered beauty

    How about 'Invisible beauty is tantalizing'?

    Not a teacher.
