Florence Colgate, an attractive woman blessed with perfect facial proportions, is believed to be the most beautiful woman in Britain, based on science.
In 2012, Colgate joined a competition sponsored by Lorraine Cosmetics that sought the most naturally beautiful woman. The blue-eyed blonde bested 8,000 other contestants who were judged without make-up. Those who underwent cosmetic surgery or chemical enhancement were disqualified in the competition.
Using the proportional beauty theory, the judges of the contests chose Colgate as the winner of the competition because of her optimum proportions for beauty.
Carmen Lefèvre, a professor from the University of St Andrews perception laboratory in the School of Psychology, thinks that Colgate possesses traits that indicate the classic signs of beauty.
“She has large eyes, high cheekbones, full lips and a fair complexion. Symmetry appears to be a very important cue to attractiveness.”
The Scientific Definition of Beauty
According to the scientific definition of beauty, a woman’s face is believed to be most attractive when the space between the pupils of her eyes is less than half of the width of her face from ear to ear. In Colgate’s case, she scored 44 percent.
Meanwhile, the relative distance between the mouth and the eye should just be over a third of the measurement between her hairline and chin, according to experts. Colgate scored 32.8 percent in this criteria.
Britain’s most beautiful woman, who normally wears light foundation and mascara and uses concealer and Vaseline, said people should not opt to go under the knife just to be content with their physical appearance.
‘‘I hope people will look at me and think they don’t need to. I’m very happy with the way I look and I would never have any plastic surgery or Botox,” Colgate said.
American actress Jessica Alba, American country singer Shania Twain, and British actress Elizabeth Hurley have been listed among celebrities with perfectly symmetrical faces.
