#1. What area of the face is the first to show signs of aging?
you correctly answered 8-10: You are extremely well informed
and aesthetically astute.
If you correctly answered 5-7: You are more informed than
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
#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. Palmers theories on beauty and aesthetics-these
principles have earned Dr. Palmer world wide recognition
culminating in his being voted "One of the Worlds
Best Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons" by an international publication.
#3. False-Mens 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-Mens eyebrows are straight and flat. Womens 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
#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. Palmers 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
