What is "facial femininity?" What personality traits do you believe it is correlated with it? Certain facial features in women are seen as attractive, and appealing and we may see these faces indicating innocence. Symmetrical facial features, large eyes (Theory attracted to features similar to an infants that effects the limbic brain) and larger upper lip than lower lip and red enlarged lips (similar to engorged labial lips) paler skin, glowing skin, skin free of spots and other facial blemishes. (facial symmetry is about measurement; recent psychology research from the University of California, San Diego and the University of Toronto has found that the distance between a woman’s eyes and the distance between her eyes and mouth are very important in whether people find her attractive.  When the vertical distance between the eyes and the mouth was approximately 36 percent of the face’s length, and the horizontal distance between the eyes was approximately 46 percent of the face's width, the students judged the faces as more attractive. This study shows that the structure of faces -- the relation between our face contour and the eyes, mouth and nose -- also contributes to our perception of facial attractiveness. Those findings also explain why sometimes an attractive person looks unattractive or vice versa after a haircut, because hairdos change the face shape thus the ratios."
