Scientists create the ideal woman’s face

Scientists have blended thousands of women’s faces based on 41 countries around the globe to produce the average woman’s face for each country.

Images of 41 women from different ethnicities were laid on top of each other where a unique computer imagery produced the common look. They eye shapes, skin tones, all facial features were depicted from this unique computer programme created by Psychologists from Glasgow university.

Women's faces in different countries

The face of the average woman from a variety of countries including England, China, Switzerland and Japan has been collected by scientists using a modern tool technique pioneered by that of anthropologist Sir Francis Galton in the late 19th century.

The method – called ‘composite portraiture’ has been used ever since, particularly in the study of ‘attractiveness’ – which studies people’s perception of beauty. This method caused some controversy with the results with many saying it does not reflect the reality of the ‘common’ face as they are all beautiful. Many agree that it does make sense the women are all pretty – because averages rule out imperfections – many are baffled that the women all seem to be in her early twenties which is not the average age of any nationality.

Instead of having many blurred images with undefined features, they say the method averages the shape of the features before blending the images together.

Inspiring ideas with the use of modern technology will always fascinate us but at the end of the day all women are wonderfully unique in their own right and as the saying goes beauty is in the eye of the beholder. There are many different women’s or men’s faces you can find at Singles 247 Dating site but which one will take your fancy for a date.
