Florence Colgate’s Face Is Golden Ratio Facial Beauty

Florence Colgate, 18, has the world’s most beautiful face, according to the Golden Ratio Facial Beauty method. Her face is also the winner of a beauty contest held by Lorraine Cosmetics and is said to have near-perfect facial proportions. The company claims to have the science to prove it.

Colgate has mathematically perfect looks, according to statistics reported by the Daily Mail.

Not only is the 18-year-old’s visage perfectly symmetrical, but she has the “optimum ratio” between her mouth, eyes, chin, and forehead.

For example, scientists say that in a perfectly proportioned face, the distance between the eyes would be 46 percent of the whole width of the face. Colgate has a ratio of 44 percent, Kent Online reports.

Carmen Lefevre, PhD student at the University of St. Andrews, weighed in on other factors contributing to the British beauty’s good looks, the International Business Times reports.

In particular, Lefèvre noted that Colgate’s “large eyes, high cheekbones, [and] full lips” are “classic signs of beauty.”

The competition, called “Lorraine: Naked,” judged contestants without makeup, reports the IBT, and entrants who had undergone plastic surgery were not allowed.

Colgate was chosen as one of three finalists, and then decided as the winner by a public vote, according to Kent Online.

As the winner, Colgate will be featured on billboards at Superdrug stores throughout England.

The English rose is enrolled in her final year at Dover Grammar School in Deal, Kent, and plans to study business management in the future, the Mail reports.

She currently works Saturdays at a local fish and chip shop, but says that she would love to have a career in modeling.

Colgate just might get the job.
