The Golden Ratio & Phi-Lift
The Golden Ratio has been used by artists and architects for over 2000 years to proportion works for enhancing beauty and proportion. Research led to a human archetype can be mapped mathematically to a Facial Mask based on the Golden Ratio (1:1.62). We have modified the mask to use the Golden Ratio for augmentation and beautification of the face.
Within the shape of the Golden Decagon Matrix, forty-two secondary golden decagon matrices, each smaller than the Primary by a multiple of the Golden Ratio. These have been overlaid on the human face, and when the extra lines removed, the resulting image gives rise to a Mask, composed of line segments and shapes that relate to each other through the Golden or Divine Proportion (1:1.62). The Golden Ratio Mask has been superimposed onto photographs of people regarded as the top models, most beautiful women and handsome men.
Critics of the proportional rules of Thirds and Fifths, and The Golden Ratio Mask highlight a bias towards European Caucasian Faces and that there is no absolute universal mask for beauty as some faces regarded as attractive do not fit the mask. Brad Pitt, is considered to by many a handsome man, has characteristics that include a prominent jaw and lengthened chin that fall outside the parameters the Golden Ratio Mask. Woman’s beauty is often enhanced by facial movement and adds to attractiveness. Men, often have less expression on facial movement and rely more on their physical traits such as prominent jaw. Symmetry and proportion are more attractive than distinct or stand-out features, demonstrated by caricatures. Variations from the perceived norm can be attractive, as long as the variations fall along the lines of femininity in women and masculinity in men.
