Recently in one of our local newspapers there was an article about what comprises the perfect woman's face.  Florence is a young lass in England who is blessed with what is described as the perfect face.  She scored very highly against 8,000 contestants in a competition to find Britain's most naturally beautiful face.  This contest banned anyone who had had plastic surgery or chemical enhancement.

A woman's face is said to be most attractive when the space between her pupils is just under half the width of her face from ear to ear.

Experts also believe the relative distance between eyes and mouth should be just over a third of the measurement from hairline to chin.  Florence's ratio is 32.8 percent.

I have no idea who these so-called experts are but I guess it's time you looked in the mirror and perhaps grabbed a tape measure to see if you perhaps also have the PERFECT FACE.   Would be most interested to know if you fall into that category.  My face?  No, I've not yet checked it out yet and not sure I want to.  At age 80 there is a chance some bits may have moved around a little, although out of sheer curiousity I just may do so when nobody is around watching.


  1. I am a tad disappointed as I had hoped someone who read this would tell me they indeed did have the perfect face...anybody????

  2. No, sorry. Mine's not symmetrical - in fact, I prefer something a bit out of the ordinary as far as faces go. I haven't seen this so-called 'perfect' face, but whenever they do those compilation faces (with bits and pieces from famous people) they always look a bit bland. Thanks for making me think though x

  3. I don't think mine is the perfect face, it may be all in line persay, but I am quite happy with it!

  4. Actually there was an actual photograph of Florence in the paper but I'm not clever enough to somehow copy it and show it here. Needless to say she did have a very lovely face although I'd not say she was beautiful. It was definitely not a composite made up of many parts of different faces. I was just interested to think there actually was a formula for 'the perfect face'.
