The determinants of facial attractiveness are not well understood, but have important implications for how we understand the evolution of other facial characteristics, such as the difference between male and female faces, and of face perception in general.

This study involves both subjective ratings of facial photographs (attractiveness, masculinity, intelligence, extraversion, neuroticism, trustworthiness) as well as facial landmarks, which can be used to objectively quantify parameters including masculinity and averageness.
