Perfect proportions of the face

The face of a woman is a business card that can do a lot
tell: about health, about the ability to look after yourself, apply
suitable makeup and even character. On the face first
they cast a glance, pick things up to their faces, draw attention to them.
The shape and proportions of the face, its lines and features form an impression of
man, affect his image as a whole. That’s why, creating your
image and style is so important to take into account all the features
your face.

In 2009, scientists from America conducted a study during
which tried to calculate the perfect proportions of the face. Scientific
research involved a series of experiments in which men
should have chosen the most attractive female face of all
proposed. So, as a result, it turned out that the perfect face
is considered when the distance from the eye line to the mouth line is
36% of the length of the face, and between the pupils – about 46% of the width of the face. Such
ideal settings are inherent in the face of Mona Lisa.

Golden ratio or “beauty mask”

The question of the ideal proportions of the face worried people with
antiquities. Scientists of the past centuries were not limited to
theoretical studies and once decided to derive some formula
perfect face, which would be considered the benchmark of beauty. So
Thus, the magic proportions of 1: 1.618, as well as such
concept like a golden section mask. Since then, people (in
particular female representatives) seek to bring closer
its appearance to the ideal.

The pioneer of the theory of the golden section was
ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras. It was he who designated
ideal beauty parameters, calculating the ratio of 1: 1.618. This
the discovery, as well as numerous works by Leonardo da Vinci,
dedicated to this topic, based on the famous Stephen Marquardt,
American plastic surgeon who specialized in major
way to correct congenital or acquired defects

One of Marquardt’s activities was to study individuals
conforming to beauty standards. The results of his observations and
observations of predecessors, helped the doctor come to certain
conclusions. Conditionally dividing the face into many pentagons and
triangles whose sides are already known to us
1: 1.618, Marquardt created the so-called beauty mask,
defining the golden section of the face. If the facial features of a person
match this pattern, it can be considered beautiful.
An interesting fact is that almost all famous personalities
last century correspond to almost 100% of the specified parameters.

The concept of the golden ratio is related to proportionality and
harmony of features. The golden ratio is a straight line
the segment divided into unequal parts so that the total
its length correlated with the largest part as the last
refers to the smallest.

To date, the golden ratio is actively used in its
practice, both plastic surgeons and makeup artists.
The fundamental knowledge of the proportions of a human face allows and
both to correct the serious defects of the innate and
acquired character. In addition, the golden section rules give
the opportunity for everyone to compare their appearance with the parameters
which are recognized as ideal.

Modern methods of modeling the perfect face

Plastic surgery does not tolerate approximation, but requires
jewelry accuracy, and modern specialists are unlikely to be
compare the patient’s face and perfect mask

Today, to model the perfect face, taking into account the golden section
can be through a special computer program. For this
you just need to upload a photo of a person made by certain
rules: a person should keep his head straight and look at the brush
hands extended forward. Then the photo is processed (in the photo
The image of the ideal mask is adjusted, which determines
golden section of the face). As a result, the program gives the adjusted
a photograph that indicates the scope of work for the surgeon. Customer, in
turn will be able to see the intended result of the operation and
decide on its necessity.

To calculate the ideal proportions of the face, anyone can
on their own, using the calculator of the golden section of the face.

Practice shows that “perfect” is not always “better.”
Improved face often loses its natural flavor.
Therefore, many people, assessing the result of the program,
abandon the desire to change something on your face.

What are the proportions of the face are considered ideal?

Speaking about the characteristics of certain features, specialists
imply a ratio of the sizes of different parts of the face, as between
themselves, and the attitude of these parts to the person as a whole.

To find out how perfect the proportions of the face, allow the following

  1. The ratio of length to width of the face at its widest point.
    should be about 1.61 – which is the golden ratio.
    This ratio of the lengths of the two segments to each other was used in
    mathematics back in antiquity, but more widespread
    received thanks to Leonardo da Vinci and began to be used with
    success in painting and architecture;
  2. The width of the face along the eye line should be equal to the length of the eye from
    its outer corner to the inner (not counting the eyelashes) multiplied
    by five. The ideal distance between the inner corners of the eyes
    must be equal to the length of one eye. And the segment between the outer corner
    eyes and ear should also be equal to the length of the eye or slightly less.
    It should be noted that some sources mean distance
    between the outer corner of the eye and the edge of the face, and in others the distance
    between the eye and the ear;
  3. The eyes should be on the line that divides the person’s head.
    horizontally in half. And this is not about the face, but about the whole
    head – from the line passing through the lower point of the chin to the very
    crown. In this case, the eye line must divide it into two equal
  4. The length between the upper hairline and the eyebrow line should
    be equal to the line between the brow line and the nose line and the line
    between the nose line and the chin line;
  5. The width of the nose should be equal to the distance between the eyes, more precisely
    their inner corners;
  6. The ideal width of the mouth should be no more and no less
    the distance between the irises of the eyes. Some sources indicate
    the distance between the pupils of the eyes, but the error here
    is small.
  7. When connecting the lines of the point of the outer corners of the eyes (not taking into account
    eyelashes) and the midpoint of the edge of the lower lip, should turn out
    equilateral triangle.
  8. Each eyebrow should start on a line that runs
    vertically through the inner corner of the eye and the line of the wing of the nose, and
    end at the intersection with the line that runs from
    wing of the nose through the outer corner of the eye;
  9. The ears should be located between the eye line and the nose line, and their
    the size must match the distance between the two
  10. The height of the chin should be equal to the length of the eye.

These are the basic proportions of the face. Deviation from them in any
degree and determines the value of characteristics such as “low”
“high”, “wide”, “narrow” and so on.

In nature, the coincidence of absolutely all parameters is a phenomenon
quite rare. But this does not mean that people with no
by ugly faces corresponding to ideal proportions
pretty Quite the contrary, those “defects” sometimes give a face
special unforgettable charm.
