Face Score Analysis.

Certain dimensions and ratios create harmony in the facial features!

For calculating the Face Score, PinkMirror looks into the geometric proportions of facial features such as eyes, nose, lips, etc and the distance between those.


Beauty is in the balance of these facial features, which artists from NeoClassical era called it as Aesthetic principles. These aesthetic-principles is analyzed and from the portraits they drawn and extracted two generic rules. The 'Rule of Fifths' and the 'Rule of Thirds'.

Rule of Fifths:

A proportionate face may be divided vertically into fifths, each approximately the width of one eye. Aesthetic balance is considered ideal when the facial features fall within these parameters. The width of the base of the nose is approximately equal to the distance between the eyes.

Rule of Thirds:

Leonardo da Vinci, that all-around genius of science and art, developed a formula for determining a well-balanced face. He found that a well-balanced face can be evenly divided into thirds, vertically. The top third is from your hairline to the top of your brows. The middle third is from the top of the brows to the bottom of your nose . The bottom third is from the bottom of your nose to your chin.

The Rule-of-Fifths and Rule-of-Thirds are more apt for females. For males, these rules mostly stays true with minor deviations. Face-Attractiveness-Analyzer finds the most beautiful celebrities.

The Angle of face and Score variations:

The angle at which the photo is taken and the pose of the face, significantly contributes to variation in the face score. For an accurate result, please upload a portrait photo with the person looking straight into the camera. The Rule-of-fifth and Rule-of-third is formulated based on straight looking face.

Important Notice:

Please note that the face score system with PinkMirror has limitations and not final. Beauty is the proportion of the whole face, rather than individual features. Please use these values only for fun.

Why are some faces worthy of a second look?


What makes a person attractive? Even though you can probably determine pretty quickly if you think someone is attractive or not, you might struggle to explain why you feel that way. In fact, many people find it hard to define what they consider beautiful. Although individual preferences regarding things like hairstyle and eye color can vary and beauty trends change over the years, there is one common thread underlying nearly every idea of attractiveness. It actually all comes down to one very simple concept: the golden proportions and facial symmetry.
