This study investigates the relationship between specific facial features of adult women and their attractiveness and response towards men.
In an international selection of photographs of 50 women, accurate measurements of the relative size of 24 facial features were made. Male subjects rated the attractiveness of each individual face.
Positively correlated with women's attractiveness rating include large eyes, a small nose, a small chin, prominent cheekbones and the expressive features of high eyebrows and large pupils. In a second study, men were asked to rate the personal characteristics of 16 previously measured women.
The study proves that certain facial features predict evidence of personality as well as altruistic inclinations and reproductive interests.
The consistent relationships between attractiveness and expressive traits found in these studies showed that beauty is not an inexplicable trait that is only in the eye of the beholder.
