Since ancient times, people have tried to understand what is beautiful and why. We are well aware of the ideas of the ancient Greeks about the ideal appearance, expressed in beautiful sculptures. Look at Venus de Milo: her noble nose is completely flat, without a depression at the top, forming a straight line with her forehead.
During the Renaissance, artists closely studied the structure of the human body. They tried to create an image of an ideal person, whose proportions obey mathematical laws and correlated with the golden ratio, the ideal proportion.
You can imagine how difficult it is for a person with a nose that attracts attention. A girl may have incredibly beautiful eyes, but a young man will only look at her too long nose. Or, for example, a man whom nature has “rewarded” with an upturned nose: how can you remain decisive and strong-willed if everyone takes you for a frivolous person? This is especially important when meeting someone. After all, for some time, until a person sees your wonderful character or talents (and he may not see!), You will be for him “the one with a long nose” or “the one with a button-nose”. Very disappointing! Think of Cyrano de Bergerac, who had problems all his life because of his nose.
Nowadays, the proportions of the nose are measured and expressed in numbers.
The bridge of the nose should be located just above the eyelash line of the upper eyelid and protrude 9-14 mm forward beyond the eyelid line or be 4-6 mm deeper than the glabella line.
Of course, it is correct if the nostrils are symmetrical. They are separated by a partition called columella. She, this columella, should be 3-5 mm below the edge of the nostril.
A perfect nose doesn’t have to be completely straight. It is considered correct if there is a small, barely noticeable hump (no more than 2 mm) and a slightly raised tip of the nose.
Have you already wanted to have such a perfect nose? Take your time. Face parameters are not yet beauty. Not everything is so simple: I built it according to a ruler and – beautifully. Such a nose will fit only the same, built according to the laws of the golden section, face. But you can’t attach the entire head of an antique statue to yourself.
But there is a way out. Any artist will say: in order for the whole (in this case, the face) to look harmonious, it is not individual honors themselves that are important, but the correct proportions and ratios of parts to each other. So let’s put a bigger nose to the big face, and a smaller one to the small face. For short women, a slightly upturned nose will go, but for tall women it is completely useless – people will pay undue attention to their nostrils.
Even if we had such a crazy idea to give everyone a perfect nose, we would not have succeeded. No matter how hard we try, the noses will still turn out to be individual, let’s say more – unique.
Many professions require an attractive appearance, therefore, career sometimes depends on it. Needless to say, appearance is important for girls of top models, but there are still flight attendants and secretaries, but what can I say, everyone who has to represent and communicate with people.
Therefore, one can understand how much suffering and even tears can cause in a young girl too big a nose, or too thick, or hunchback, or snub. Such problems often give rise to complexes, a consciousness of one’s own inferiority.
