In an attempt to understand the centuries-old fascination with the ‘ perfect female face’, researchers asked men and women to use facial features of celebs to describe the face that they consider ideal.
According to The Vine, men’s ideal female face consisted of blonde hair, full lips, strong cheekbones, a petite nose, less prominent forehead and finer eyebrows.
Meanwhile, woman imagined a perfect face to have dark hair, a stronger nose and forehead profile, strong brows and narrower bone structure.
When surveyors, cosmetic firm Escentual.com , constructed men and women’s described faces using Shakira’s blonde hair, Mila Kunis’ eyes, Angelina Jolie’s full lips, Megan Fox’s chin, Freida Pinto’s hair, Keira Knightley’s cheekbones, Cara Delevingne’s eyebrows and Scarlett Johansson’s mouth, the results were 2 different versions of the ‘ultimate face of beauty’.
Researchers concluded that men’s and women’s version of ideal faces, which ended up looking like cartoonish heroines in video games, are very different from each other and apparently quite eerie. (ANI)
