Is beauty truly in the eye of the beholder? Apparently, not so much. As it turns out, there's some math involved. Here's what researchers have discovered about just what it is that makes a person's face attractive, scientifically speaking, of course.

According to psychologist Anthony Little, humans have an appreciation for symmetrical-seeming faces. As the psychologist revealed to the website Science News For Students:

"Symmetry looks normal to us. And we then like it."

However, the psychologist further explained that people only think they prefer symmetrical faces, explaining that what we're really attracted to are mathematically average faces, which are less about symmetry and more about the specific features on a person's face, as well as their arrangement.

While symmetry has long been thought to be a key factor in attractiveness, a 2004 study showed that plenty of folks find mathematically average faces attractive whether they're perfectly symmetrical or not. During the study, researchers discovered that manipulating a picture of a person's face shape to become more of "an average shape," while not manipulating the faces to appear more symmetrical, spurred participants to rate the faces as more attractive. This was true whether the volunteer viewed a profile shot or head-on photo. Likewise, when the same images were, quote, "morphed away from the average shape," viewers found them to be less attractive.
