With no context, this is the correct answer:

Yes. She definitely is not a natural beauty.

The next answer, "Yes. She definitely is not the natural beauty." would be correct if this woman was among a group in which there was exactly one 'natural beauty.'

The constructions using 'in' construe 'natural beauty' as a location, which is incorrect in all but the most contrived situations.

  • in is not always used to convey location, e.g. in color. – Barmar Dec 26 '14 at 3:05
  • True, there are many uses for 'in.' The explanation was meant only to clarify why the 'in' constructions were incorrect. – Coty Johnathan Saxman Dec 26 '14 at 3:14
