Florence Colgate, age 18, won a British contest last year to find the most naturally beautiful face in England. Entrants were judged without makeup, and having had plastic surgery or other enhancements was a disqualification. Colgate, who works in a fish and chips shop, beat 8,000 other entrants to win the title.
According to the Daily Mail UK, "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. Florence scores a 44 per cent ratio. 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 per cent."
From a plastic surgeon's perspective, there are a few key features that make Colgate's face empirically beautiful.
1. It is symmetrical
2. Her complexion is smooth and free of blemishes and wrinkles
3. The mathematical proportions of her face accord with the plastic surgeon's golden ratios
That being said, there are several aspects of Colgate's face that are not "textbook beautiful."
1. Her central upper lip is slightly less full
2. The tip of her nose is slightly bulbous
3. Her eyebrows are slightly flat rather than arched
4. Her jaw is slightly square-shaped rather than cone-shaped
Colgate is by all indications a beautiful woman. The ways she deviates from "textbook beauty" just go to demonstrate that an important part of beauty is the gestalt first impression. Gorgeous women come in many variants, and there is no one recipe for beauty that applies to all people.
