Certain Dimensions And Ratios Create Harmony In The Face Attractiveness Features!
To determine the Face Attractiveness Score, PinkMirror analyze the geometric proportions of facial features such as the eyes, nose, lips, etc. and the distance between those. When the face analysis is finished, you are able to see which features of your face determine your beauty score.
Beauty is in the balance of these face analysis features which artists from NeoClassical era called the Aesthetic principles. These aesthetic-principles are analyzed from the portraits and they are then drawn and extracted into two generic rules. The ‘Rule of Fifths’, the ‘Rule of Thirds’ and the ‘Rule of 77’.
Rule Of Fifths
A proportionate face may be divided vertically into fifths with each of those fifths being 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.
Rule of 77
Frontal dimensions is only one aspect of facial beauty, out of two key aspects. Second equality important aspect is Lateral depth. Frontal dimensions is considering the edges of facial features and face itself as visually perceived as lines. However it is just one part of the beauty equation. Lateral depth consider the gradients between brightness & darkness which give the perception of the depth for the face in three dimensional space.
The Beauty Scale
The Rule-of-Fifths, Rule-of-Thirds and Rule-of-77 is a simple representation of a complex interplay of aesthetic measures between different parts of a beautiful face.
In this beauty scale, following aspects are considered.
- Face-structure (Frontal and Lateral Dimension)
- Symmetry (between left and right side of the face)
- Feature-structure (Shape of individual features such as eye brow, nose, etc)
- Skin quality (Skin Tone and Skin Clarity.)
Skin Tone: Skin quality which is mostly even across the face.
Skin Clarity: Lesser spots, wrinkles. The radiance of skin showoff the health of the person.
Please note that the face attractiveness score system with PinkMirror has limitations hence it is not final. Beauty is the proportion of the whole face, rather than just with the individual features so please use these values for informative purposes.
Score – [0 ~ 1]
With this face analysis score, the results may determine a very unattractive face because there is hardly any symmetry with the features. It also may be because the face detection had gone wrong.
Score – [1.0 ~ 2.9]
With this face analysis score, the results determine an unattractive face because the symmetry is not inline and the proportions are not great.
Score – [3.0 ~ 5.9]
With this face analysis score, the results determine an average face because the facial symmetry is almost there. This group is the general population.
Score – [6.0 ~ 8.9]
With this face analysis score, the results may determine a very beautiful and attractive face because the symmetry is close to perfect.
Score – [9.0 ~ 10]
With this face analysis score, the results are unrealistic because you may be super beautiful or your photo is already retouched.
The Angle of the Face and Score Variations
The variation of the face score generally has to do with the angle at which the photo is taken and the pose of the face. When you add portrait photo in PinkMirror.com for beauty analysis, it is important to use photo with the person looking straight into the camera in order to do accurate calculations. The Rule-of-fifth, Rule-of-third and Rule-of-77 is formulated based on photos with face looking straight onto the camera.
