there is no such thing as proper exposure

It all depends on what you intend to do with the photo. In most cases (especially outdoors) the dynamic range of the scene by far exceeds the DR of the camera. So you have to decide what to capture at best quality.

On the other hand in a highly controlled environment like a photo studio using an exposure meter works great and gives perfect results for skin tones.
