If you correctly answered 8-10: You are extremely well informed and aesthetically astute.
If you correctly answered 5-7: You are more informed than most.
If you correctly answered 1-4: You have average knowledge of facial beauty and aesthetics but you may have some misconceptions.

The correct answer key is:

#1. D-The eyes begin to show signs of aging in the third decade as the tissue sags and fat deposits begin to appear. The outer portions of the upper eyelids sag at a greater rate causing the overall shape of the eyes to change from almond to round. Aged eyes give a tired appearance to the entire face.

#2.C-The cheeks are the most important facial beauty feature and are responsible for the vast majority of whether the face will appear masculine, feminine, youthful or old. It can literally be said that the tissue of the face hangs from the cheeks. This revolutionary concept is at the core of Dr. Palmer’s theories on beauty and aesthetics-these principles have earned Dr. Palmer world wide recognition culminating in his being voted "One of the World’s Best Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons" by an international publication.

#3. False-Men’s ideal facial features are those that appear angular/chiseled giving their face a ruggedly handsome appearance. Women, on the other hand, look their best with features that are more rounded-giving an overall appearance that is soft and feminine.

#4. False-The nose carries no inherent aesthetic value and should not draw attention to itself-if it does it will be at the expense of the more important beauty features of the face and the result will be a less attractive individual.

#5. D-Men’s eyebrows are straight and flat. Women’s
eyebrows are far more complex in shape. Ideally the female eyebrow is broad and club shaped by the nose. It thins and arches at a point measured by a vertical line drawn through the outer colored portion of the eye. This is the eyebrow peak. The brow then continues to taper as it approaches the outer portion of the face leaving the peak at a 45-degree angle. The outer edges of the eyebrow should be approximately 1 small finger width above the rim of the eye socket.

#6. True-Gravity is an unknowing force that pulls the tissues of the face similarly for all individuals. As the tissues of the face fall inward towards the nose and mouth the face takes on a relative angular appearance that is perceived as more masculine. This is why men are said to age better than women. As we age the face appears more masculine. This suits men but not the appearance of women.

#7. C-The size and shape of the cheeks determine how well a face ages. Cheeks that have more volume will logically deter sagging tissue to a greater extent. If the cheeks are flat, there is virtually nothing to stop the facial tissue from rapidly sagging and the face will appear prematurely aged and relatively masculine.

#8. True-The cheeks account for a whopping 75% of facial beauty, the eyes/eyebrows are a distant second at about 10%, and finally the lips contribute about 5%. These are Dr. Palmer’s trademarked principles of facial beauty-the basis of his revolutionary techniques in plastic surgery.

#9. C-Men are ruggedly handsome with cheeks that are short, narrow and prominently placed on the face. Women appear soft, youthful and feminine with cheeks that are full, round and low to the face.

#10. D-See the answer to question #8.
