What Makes a Face Attractive?

It has been long believed that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but even so, what makes a face attractive? There are certain features of an attractive face that are generally universally pleasing. So if you’re looking to make yourself even more beautiful, how do you go about it?

In this article, we’ll explore the various facial features and characteristics that contribute to an “attractive” look and tips and tricks to achieve the look.

Facial Symmetry

A symmetrical face plays a particularly important role in how attractive a face is deemed. Studies have shown that people with symmetrical faces – with similar proportions on both sides – are considered to be more attractive.

One of the reasons for this is that facial symmetry usually is connected with a healthier lifestyle, from a healthy diet to plenty of exercise. Achieving perfect symmetry is hard to do, however emphasizing symmetry can be done when applying makeup or styling hair.

In addition to makeup and hair styling, there are other ways to emphasize facial symmetry. For example, wearing glasses that are the same size and shape on both sides of the face can help to create a more symmetrical look.

Additionally, wearing accessories such as earrings or necklaces that are the same on both sides can help to create a more balanced look.

Facial Asymmetry

While symmetry is considered attractive, contemporary beauty standards have demonstrated that facial asymmetry can bring a pleasing aesthetic to the face as well.

Having subtle varying proportions between the two sides of the face can bring greater personality to a look, and express different aspects of the individual’s features.

When you’re focusing on asymmetry, aim to make sure that one side of your face doesn’t look drastically different from the other – subtlety is key if you decide to go down this route rather than emphasizing symmetry.

When creating an asymmetrical look, it is important to consider the balance of the face. For example, if you have a strong jawline on one side, you may want to balance it out with a fuller cheek on the other side.

Additionally, you can use makeup to create an asymmetrical look. For example, you can use a darker shade of eyeshadow on one eye and a lighter shade on the other. This can help to create a more balanced look while still emphasizing the asymmetry.

Features Indicating a Good Health Condition

When it comes to facial features, a healthy appearance is seen as attractive. For men, the definition of strong jaw lines and sharp cheekbones gives them an overall ‘manly’ look.

For women, highlighting these features can not only make them appear more attractive, but they can also give the illusion of a more youthful and healthy look as well. Ensuring you eat a balanced and nutrient-packed meal is key to achieving this.

In addition to facial features, healthy body weight is also a sign of good health. Eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly can help you maintain a healthy weight. Taking care of your body is essential for achieving and maintaining good health.

Visually Attractive Face Shape

The overall shape and size of your face can make you stand out from the crowd. If you have a round face, highlighting high cheekbones and slightly more definition in the jawline can make you appear slimmer and more sculpted, whereas if you have an oval face choosing sizing and contouring styles can provide an interesting and aesthetically pleasing look.

For those with a square face, the goal is to soften the angles and create a more oval shape. This can be achieved by using a contouring technique to create shadows and highlights that will give the illusion of a more oval shape.

Additionally, using a light foundation and blush can help to soften the angles of the face and create a more balanced look.

Higher Cheekbones

Higher perky cheeks appear more attractive in general – whether your own cheekbones are quite high or not. The trick here is to use highlighting and contour techniques in order to emphasize the area, creating a warmer and softer facial look. However don’t go overboard and create a look that is too harsh or feels too forced – subtlety is key.

When highlighting and contouring, it is important to use the right shades and textures. For highlighting, use a light, shimmery powder or cream to draw attention to the area. For contouring, use a matte powder or cream that is slightly darker than your natural skin tone.

This will help to create a more natural look and will help to define the cheekbones.

Shape of Eyes

Different techniques can be used to make eyes appear bigger, brighter and whiter, which makes you look more attractive.

Applying lighter shades around the eyes, or using light-coloured eyeliners and eye shadows (such as light pinks or white), will emphasize the eyes more and make them appear awake.

Additionally curling eyelashes before mascara application makes eyes appear opened up.

Using a highlighter on the inner corners of the eyes can also help to make them appear brighter and more awake. Applying a light-coloured eyeshadow to the brow bone can also help to make the eyes appear bigger.

Additionally, using white or light-coloured eyeliner on the lower lash line can help to make the eyes appear bigger and brighter.

Blepharoplasty and eyelid surgeries can also be used to enhance the shape of the eyes, creating more open and attractive eyes.

Nose shape

Nose shape has a huge impact on the overall attractiveness of the face. Generally, a symmetrical nose that is proportional to the rest of the face is considered attractive. A nose with a slightly upturned tip and minimal bumps or indentations is often seen as attractive.

Highlighting your nose can draw attention away from other parts and towards the area you want to emphasize.

Contouring around the bridge and bridge of the nose and mixing shades lighter and darker than your skin tone can create an illusion of a slimmer nose.

In addition to contouring, you can also use makeup to create the illusion of a more defined nose. Applying a light shade of foundation to the bridge of the nose and a darker shade to the sides can create a more sculpted look. You can also use a highlighter to draw attention to the bridge of the nose and create a more prominent look.

Dermal nose fillers can be used to enhance the nose’s shape and reduce the appearance of bumps or depressions. They can also be used to treat nasal asymmetry and improve the face’s overall balance and structure.

Mouth Shape

Having lips fuller on both sides makes them appear more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing. If you want to make your mouth appear bigger than it is, use a slightly darker shade than your natural skin colour to outline the lips.

Dermal lip fillers can also be used to create fuller and more attractive lips.

Smooth and full lips are the goal for attractive lush-looking lips.

Facial Skin Tone and Health

Having good skin health also contributes greatly to overall attractiveness. To keep your skin looking healthy and glowing, eating a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water should be your first priority.

Additionally using natural antioxidants such as Vitamin E can help nourish skin from within, as well as using high-quality skincare products for washing and moisturising.

Anti-wrinkle injections, facial skin tightening and skin pigmentation treatments can go a long way in assisting you to achieve that youthful glow.


The shape of eyebrows can be key when it comes to making a person look clean and streamlined. Aiming for lightly shaped brows that have an emphasis on the arch can offer a flattering look for any face shape.

If eyebrows are quite thick and dark, using a tinted brow gel or pencil to lighten them up can also help make them appear less stark.

These are just some of the tips and tricks you can use in order to make yourself look more attractive and radiant.

There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to beauty; however, by focusing on your unique facial features and enhancing them, you can achieve an overall attractive and attractive look that will be sure to turn heads!

Full well maintained eyebrows frame the eyes and finish off the look of the face, to create a balanced and symmetrical facial aesthetic.
