Physical attractiveness has important social consequences and well defined facial features are socially considered the most important traits of physical beauty. Our magazines and television screens are not just filled with any faces—they are filled with attractive faces. What makes a face look attractive and beautiful? What are the differences between very attractive and less appealing faces? are some of these markers of beauty? And more importantly, why do we find them to be beautiful? While you may spend hours scouring beauty counters searching for miracle concoctions to help you look more attractive, what others inherently find beautiful about your face may actually be based more on proportions than
- · Forehead higher than average,
- · Fuller lips, higher cheek bones,
- · Regular jaw line with tapering chin
- · Smaller nose.
For women; “large eyes, a small nose and fuller lips are generally found to be more attractive as they are considered to enhance facial femininity” says Dr. Mishra.
