The word 'handsome' can be used in two contexts. Firstly it can be used to describe the physical appearance or characteristics pertaining mainly to one's face; which are pleasing to the eye. The idea of being handsome usually conforms to generally accepted standards of beauty in terms of form, proportion etc. Moreover the old saying holds true – "beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

Secondly, handsome can also be used to describe a large reward, could be in cash or kind. For example, "He was given a handsome reward for his services to the Queen"
