Welcome to the 'beautycheck' homepage!
If you take a look at the picture to the left, you will quite certainly think that this is a very beautiful face. But what makes you be so sure about that? Finding answers to why we regard one face as being more beautiful than another is actually not as easy as it seems.
Nevertheless, at least in the case of the above photograph, it's not a big surprise that you think this is an attractive face. Each pixel of that face has been calculated by scientists using a specialized software program - that is, it has been altered in a special way in order to make people think this is an attractive face.
On this homepage, you will find plenty of information on a large research project on 'facial attractiveness' that has been carried out at the universities of Regensburg and Rostock in Germany.
