Most women prefer men with feminine shaped faces: StudyApril 25th, 2011 - 7:05 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 25 (ANI): A new study claims that men with feminine faces will be luckier in love as more women are attracted to them than masculine men.
According to the research by psychologists at New York and Princeton universities, most women prefer men with more feminine shaped faces and darker skin, reports the Daily Mail.
But the investigation found that men typically also want women’s faces to be feminine with plump lips and wide eyes.
Two groups of men and women were shown a selection of thousands of computer-generated faces of the opposite sex to rate, which had been manipulated to look either more masculine or feminine.
The computer model tested 50 dimensions of facial features, including nose size, plumpness of lips and facial colouring.
The scientists found that more men want women’s faces to have a feminine shape, while women also want men’s faces to have a feminine shape, but darker skin.
The findings show that male and female attractiveness are not equal and opposite, according to the researchers.
The study will be published by the Psychological Science journal. (ANI)
