Is This the Ideal Feminine Face?

A few years ago, scientists found that among 8,000 possibilities this is the most loveable feminine face. She's Florence Colgate, and she lives in Britain. Her face is characterized by full facial symmetry (her right and left sides are identical), the pupils of her eyes are apart about 44% of the facial width (46% is ideal), and the distance between her eyes and mouth are 32.8% (33.3% is ideal). 

Florence apparently does not take this very seriously, but others did. While she was chosen by vote, apparently her biometrics very closely approximate those of the ideal female face according to scientists.

More recently, these five celebrities were the first five rated as the most ideally attractive woman: Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Taylor Swift, Kendall Jenner, and Keira Knightley.

So what specifics contribute to the ideal feminine face? The person having a heart-shaped face, almond-shaped eyes, arched eyebrows, a small, slim nose, and full lips. Apparently hair color and height are not as important. I have no idea how this research was funded but it could have applications.

not sure about most lovable, but she sure has a pleasant face. :)

Not quite symmetrical. Her right eyebrow is arched a little higher than the left. Her left eyebrow is pushing down a little which closes her eye a little more than the right.

The left side of her mouth is a little higher which makes the creases different. It also pushes her left cheek up a little.

I think we have to keep looking for the perfect person. Maybe Diogenes has some descendants that can start a search.

Mike is being way to critical, but I'm concerned about the little lift in her upper lip in the center? Ah to be perfect. She sure does come close. When I see pictures of Taylor Swift, I marvel at her perfect complexion and appearance.

She is good enough for me.

I prefer brown eyes. (And brown hair, if we're gonna take it that "far out".) Also, what's with that little "whistle hole" in the center of her lips? With my OCD, I'd be unable to look away from that.

No. This will not do. This will not do at all, I'm sorry to say.

I think that Keira and Scarlett are both beautiful women.

I also think that in order to be a truly beautiful person, personality plays a big role. Although good looking men and women have an initial advantage, many of them blow it big time when people find out that they are just good looking ass holes.

But I guess that is not what this post is about...
