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. The approach       is novel in that it jointly considers both previous results       on photo quality and beauty assessment, as well as it       incorporates non-permanent facial characteristics and expressions       in the context of female facial aesthetics. This study       helps us understand the role of this specific set of features in       affecting the way humans perceive facial images.       Based on the above objective parameters, we further construct       a simple linear metric that hints modifiable parameters       for aesthetics enhancement, as well as tunes soft biometric       systems that would seek to predict the way humans perceive       facial aesthetics.
