    I’m guessing the original face picture was generated by averaging a bunch of aligned face photos (of both genders) together? Or is it just one person and one photo?

  2. Eric’s avatar

    Yes, they made an androgynous face from over 100 male and female faces. Eyes and lips were then held constant and the rest with contrast increased or decreased (giving a lightened/darkened look). For more, find the paper on Google Scholar, “A sex difference in facial contrast and its exaggeration
    by cosmetics.”
