Turns out Beauty IS NOT In The Eye of the Beholder

It has long been said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder or varies based on race, culture or era. There is some truth to this, as each of us may hold some bias towards certain features, such as a preference for certain hair colours or skin tones. Aside from these variations, we are actually hard wired to perceive true beauty as fitting within a mathematical equation known as the Golden Ratio or Phi. People whose face and body dimensions vary significantly from this ratio are generally perceived to be unattractive or even deformed.

So what is The Formula that Determines Universal beauty?

The idea of measuring beauty has been around since the time of the Ancient Greeks. While the Golden mean/ratio aka Phi, has always existed in our universe, but we are unsure when humans first discovered this mathematical equation and applied it to the physical world.

The Golden ratio is 1.61803398875, and while this may mean nothing to you, it has been successfully applied to some of the world’s most aesthetically appealing, architectures, paintings, statues, and visual arts. The principle has also been found in nature in everything from pretty plants to attractive people’s faces.

What is the Perfect Face?

Thanks to Dr. Stephen Marquardt we now have a formula and mask that can demonstrate the perfect face. Dr. Marquardt has studied human beauty for years in his practice of oral and maxillofacial surgery, and has found that all groups of people had the same perceptions of facial beauty.

Through his research, he discovered that beauty is not only related to phi, but can be defined for both genders and for all races, cultures and eras with the beauty mask which he developed and patented. This mask uses the pentagon and decagon as its foundation, which embody phi in all their dimensions.

Even with a perfectly proportioned face though, there are endless variations in colouring and the shapes of each facial feature such as eyes, eyebrows, lips, nose, etc. that give rise to the distinctive appearance of each race and provide for endless variations in beauty that are as unique as each individual.

So there is such a thing as the Perfect Body? What is the Perfect Female Body?

Bluebella, a woman’s lingerie company, recently decided to apply the Golden Ratio to the bodies of the most revered beauties in Hollywood. What they found is, women the general population consider stunning, fit within 10% of the perfect Golden Ratio. When the bodies were measured, within the highest scores were Scarlett Johansson and Kim Kardashian. These two women are renowned for their feminine curves and stunning features. It seems their bust,waist, and hip measurements, create a nearly ‘perfect’ female figure with Scarlett scoring 96.4% and Kim coming in a close second at 96.3%. Looks like that hourglass figure were always yearning for is even mathematically favoured.

Not only can the formula be applied to the body as a whole, but also to body parts to help us discover the perfect breast or bottom.

What can I Do to Fit Closer to the Golden Ratio?

If you are happy with your body the way it is then you have won the lottery because most women are not born so lucky!!Thankfully there are surgical options to change the way you and others, look at your body. Procedures like the Brazilian butt lift can help create a stunning butt, shape, and waistline. Breast lifts and breast implant surgeries can help restore or create breast fullness. A tummy tuck can tighten up a waist line and eliminate loose and unsightly tummy skin. Of course, attaining perfection should never be the goal, instead you should strive to be your best possible self in both body and mind.
