Type Of Nose
But Wayne Rooney has one of the most attractive noses in the country, according to researchers. The Manchester United stars nose or rather its snub shape has been deemed among the most appealing by an academic who has completed what he claims is the first survey of its type to classify and record the different shapes of the human nose.

The snub: Wayne Rooney scores well with his attractive nose

The Duchess: Kates straight-edged shape is a favourite with artists Before Rooney lets the compliment go to his head, however, he should know that those with snub noses are often viewed as lacking in maturity, warns the researcher. Professor Abraham Tamir toured shopping centres in Europe and Israel, taking candid photographs of people with interesting noses. He then sorted the 1,300 pictures and matched each with a face on a painting or other piece of art. This revealed there to be 14 types of nose, with classifications ranging from fleshy to celestial.

The most common, particularly among men, was the fleshy nose, best illustrated by Prince Philip, which featured on almost a quarter of all the faces studied. Writing in the Journal of Craniofacial Surgery, Professor Tamir says those with such a nose are likely to be generous, emotional, helpful and sensitive.

The fleshy: As seen on Prince Philip, the most common nose

The hawk: Barbra Streisand's sharp profile is 'unattractive'

The Mirren: Queen actress Helen's is thin and pointed

The Greek: Fabregas's classic shape is often found on models

The aquiline: Daniel Radcliffe's nose symbolises a cool tactician

The Roman: With a sloping tip, Tom Cruises shows ambition

The Rumpole: One in 200 have a bulbous beak like Leo McKern

The Celestial: Carey Mulligans turned-up shape is a beauty

The Lenin: Broad with large nostrils, found on one in 25

The Redknapp: Just one in 50 have a nose like Spurs boss Harry

The Nixon: A rarity, fewer than one in 100 had a presidential proboscis

The Tara: Just one of 1,300 studied had a nose like

Mixed Types

It is rare to find the pure type of faces, since other planets modify the influence of the main planet considerably. Hence most of the times, the main planet becomes obscure in the face of the person and the Face Reader will end up with wrong analysis. Let us take the case of Abraham Lincoln, the renowned President of USA. The face of Lincoln is upright rectangular with its bony appearance denoting the planet Saturn. The fact that he was born in an uneducated peasant family and raised from penury is enough to understand the Saturns effect. Also, Saturns bad effect is responsible for losing his children. He fought against slavery in America which indicates again Saturns influence. The deep set eyes and firm lips are marks of Saturn. Apart from Saturn, the rectangular face also indicates the planet Mercury. Abraham Lincolns long straight nose confirms this. He is a great orator and worked as a Postman and as a Lawyer. Mercury gives him excellent mental acumen. His forehead is wide. The cheek lines from the nose to the chin are prominent. This is a mark of the planet Jupiter. This planet is responsible for his religious nature, diplomacy and exceptional leadership qualities. Thus, we see three planets: Saturn, Mercury and Jupiter influenced the entire life of Abraham Lincoln and we can attribute all the major events in his life to these three planets.

Type Of Eyes
Almond This shape is classic and easy to make up. You can do truly anything with almond eyes. Just keep them looking fresh and simple. Apply a shimmer pale color across the entire lid, moving from lash line to brow. For added emphasis, take a darker color and create a soft horizontal V around the outer corner; with the legs ending at the pupil . Deep-Set The goal : to bring your eyelids out. Apply a light shade all over the lid. Skip shadow in the crease and focus on lower lid and / or outer corner : For emphasis apply color across the lower lid from inner to outer corner: professionals use dark shadow along the lash line from center to outer corner. This makes lashes look thicker and smokier focusing attention on the eye, not on the recessive lid. Hooded Hooded eyes, where skin from the brow bone extends almost to the lash line, present a where -to -put-the -shadow problem. The solution: medium color goes slightly above the crease. Stay away from light lid colors and opalescent textures, except at the lash line, and avoid putting highlighter at the brow. finish with smoky outer corners; line the eyes with dark shadow from the outer corners to just above the pupils. Asian Stay away from light shades; light emphasizes the lid instead of the eye add depth with a medium shadow, staring near the inner corner and taking it up to the crease ( side-sweeping the lower lid on the way up). Then apply it vertically, covering about half the upper lid. Next , line the entire upper lash line with a darker colors, ending with a slight upward tilt. Line the bottom lash line, too, but end in a straight line. Round Big round eyes ( like Demi Moore ) are often thought of as innocent. Women who like this look can use the almond technique; But if round eyes seem too girlish, we suggest de-emphasizing them by applying dark shadow on only the outer third of the lower lid, which "stretches" the eyes. For added drama extend dark shadow one eighth of an inch past the outer corner in an upward.
