Face it

Is there such a thing as a perfect face?

Scientists in Britain say yes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meet Florence Colgate.

She won Lorraine Cosmetics ‘most beautiful woman in Britain’ contest, and researchers say it’s because her face is almost perfectly symmetrical.  Using The Golden Ratio*, researchers determined the 18-year-old girl’s face has the strongest chance of attracting the most people.

Guess she didn’t need cosmetics after all.

Wondering if your mug is symmetrical?  SymFace allows you to upload a photo and calculate your own ratios.

* The Golden Ratio is roughly 1.6, which means a beautiful person’s face is about 1 1/2 times longer than it is wide.

  1. She is beautiful, but the picture also tells me you need more than this face to be attractive (she could very well be, the picture can’t tell).
