A beauty survey conducted by a cosmetic company, Escentual.com demonstrates the stark contrast between how men and women perceive female beauty.
In the survey, both men and women were asked to build up the perfect face based on the features of some of the most attractive women on the planet like Miranda Kerr, Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Scarlett Johansson and more. To bring out a more graphic explanation of the ideal beauties, Escentual.com created two digitally enhanced women using bits and pieces of various celebrities.
As it turns out, men revealed that they prefer blonde-haired women. She should also have full lips, strong cheekbones, a petite nose, a less prominent forehead and finer eyebrows.
Women on the other hand see the ideal woman with lustrous raven hair, a stronger nose and forehead profile, strong brows and narrower bone structure. The female subjects chose Freida Pinto’s mane, Cara Delevigne’s bold brows, Megan Fox’s chin and Mila Kunis’ exotic eyes.
A spokesperson from Escentual.com said:
“These two pictures demonstrate the different ideals men and women have when it comes to the female face.
It seems men are still of the opinion that blondes have all the fun and picked out Columbian singer Shakira’s long platinum waves as their preferred hair style, while women favour a more exotic type of beauty, choosing Freida Pinto’s raven locks.
Interestingly, the faces are made up of a mix of different ages – 38-year-old Angelina Jolie was men’s preferred choice for cheekbones and pout while 21-year-old Cara Delevingne was the women’s top choice for eyebrows.
Meanwhile, Shakira, 36, had the men’s preferred hairstyle and a 44-year-old Jennifer Aniston’s was their preferred forehead shape.
The differences seen in the results from men and women are quite extreme so when it comes to female looks – perhaps men really are from Mars and women from Venus?”
So, do blondes really have more fun now that we know men generally find them more attractive? Share your thoughts with us about the ideal woman in the comments section below.
