Study: Men and Women Have Different Ideas About Beauty
Sat 14-12-2013

Escentual.com commissioned a survey which shows that men and women have VERY different ideas about beauty.

Men prefer blonde hair, full lips, strong cheekbones but petite nose, less prominent forehead and finer eyebrows.

Women see epitome of beauty as raven hair, strong nose, bushy brows and narrower bone structure.

Men love Shakira's hair, Miranda Kerr's nose, Jennifer Aniston's forehead, the Duchess of Cambridge's eyebrows.

Women prefer Freida Pinto's hair, Keira Knightley's cheekbones, Cara Delevingne's brows, Blake Lively's nose.

Two 'perfect faces' created from the features of glamorous actresses, singers and models, reveal the stark differences between how men and women perceive female beauty.

The most popular features for men were Shakira's cascading blonde hair, Miranda Kerr's button nose, the forehead of Jennifer Aniston, the Duchess of Cambridge's pronounced eyebrows and Angelina Jolie's cheekbones - as well as her famously full lips.

Women went for glossy hair, refined cheekbones, strong brows and nose and a sensual mouth like Scarlett Johansson's.

The Perfect Female Face According to Women:

Women's selections for the perfect female face included Freida Pinto's glossy black mane, Keira Knightley's refined cheekbones, Cara Delevingne's bushy bold brows, Blake Lively's strong nose and Scarlett Johansson's pout.

A spokesperson for escentual.com, who commissioned the survey,  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 favor 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?"
