Human perception of facial aesthetics in images is subjective and has long been explored from photographical and from psychological points of view. In this work we study the connection between subjective evaluation of facial aesthetics and selected objective parameters based on photo quality and facial soft biometrics. Unlike previous work, we here jointly consider both photo quality and beauty assessment findings, as well as introduce non-permanent facial characteristics and expressions in the context of facial female aesthetics. This approach helps us further understand the role of this specific set of features in affecting the way humans rate female face images. We further construct a simple linear metric, based on all these objective parameters, that on the one hand predicts the way humans perceive facial aesthetics and on the other hand hints modifiable parameters for aesthetics enhancement.
