Following is the detail breakup of each feature that contributes to your feminine and masculine features.

Feminine Features
Your 'Nose Width' is a Feminine feature.

A smaller Nose-Width is looked at as a feminine feature, while a wider one is a masculine one. Koehler et al.’s (2004) study suggests that a smaller nose width is considered a feminine trait due to the influence of sex hormones on facial development. Testosterone, typically higher in males, promotes the growth of the lower face, jaw, cheekbones, brow ridges, and nose, resulting in broader features. Conversely, estrogen, usually more prevalent in females, tends to restrict this growth. Consequently, individuals exposed to higher estrogen levels during development may have less broad facial features, including a smaller nose, contributing to the perception of smaller nose width as a feminine characteristic. Moreover, another study highlighted that smaller nose-width is seen as a feminine feature because female noses are usually smaller, shorter, and narrower. In contrast, male noses are generally larger, with wider roots and alar widths, resulting in a more robust and prominent appearance.

Your 'Philtrum Length' is a Feminine feature.

A shorter Philtrum is looked at as a feminine feature, while a longer Philtrum is a masculine one. The philtrum is the groove that runs from the bottom of your nose to your upper lip, and the Cupid’s bow is the ‘M’-shaped curve of your upper lip. Research indicates that these features vary between genders. According to Shin et al. (2014) and Altman (2012), women tend to have a shorter philtrum and a fuller, well-defined Cupid’s bow. This larger Cupid’s bow kind of ‘pushes up’, reducing the philtrum area, contributing to a youthful, feminine appearance. So, a shorter philtrum is seen as a feminine feature. Men, on the other hand, have a longer and narrower upper lip, implying a longer philtrum, which is seen as a masculine trait (Lakhiani & Somenek, 2019). These subtle facial differences help distinguish between masculine and feminine features.

Masculine Features
Your 'Jaw Angle' is a Hyper Masculine feature.


Your 'Bigonion to Bizygomatic Ratio' is a Masculine feature.

A smaller ratio of Bi-Gonional-Width to Bi-Zygomatic-Width is considered a feminine feature, while a larger ratio is a masculine one. The research discusses the role of bi-gonial width (jaw width) and bi-zygomatic width (cheekbone width) in defining gender-specific facial features, focusing on the differences between male and female facial structures. A slender lower face, characterized by a smaller jaw width relative to the cheekbone width, is typically perceived as a feminine feature. This perception is linked to societal and cultural notions of gender and beauty. Studies, including those by Jung et al. (2018) and Lakhiani & Somenek (2019), confirm these gender-linked facial attributes, noting that a smaller ratio of jaw width to cheekbone width—indicating a less robust, rounder or heart-shaped face—is generally considered feminine. Conversely, a larger jaw width, leading to a more angular or square-shaped face, is associated with masculinity. The studies also highlight a slight male preference for the more feminine, slender lower face.

Your 'Subnasale Stomion to Stomion Chin Ratio' is a Masculine feature.

A shorter chin length is typically perceived as a feminine trait, as opposed to the larger, more pronounced chins generally found in men. Men often exhibit more pronounced lateral tubercles (bony areas at the chin base), contributing to a broader chin appearance, identified as a masculine feature. Thus, comparatively, a shorter, less broad chin is seen as feminine. This understanding is further supported by a 2012 study by Garvin and Ruff, which utilized precise 3D surface laser scanning to examine chin differences between genders. The study found that, besides larger overall size and volume, men’s chins feature more prominent mental protruberances (forward-pointing parts of the chin) and lateral tubercles, and are typically taller. Consequently, the relatively shorter, less prominent chins observed in women are considered feminine.
