facial width to height ratio (FWHR): 1.8-2.0
measured by dividing the bizygomatic width (distance from cheekbone to cheekbone) by the height of the lower part of the eyebrow to the upper lip.

midface ratio: 1.0
measured by dividing the interpupillary distance (distance between the centers of the pupils) by the height of the nasion to the upper lip. the closer to 1:1 this is, the better.

mouth to nose ratio: 1.5-1.62
measured by dividing the width of the mouth by the width of the nose.

lower to upper lip ratio: 1.62
measured by dividing the height of the lower lip to the upper lip.

chin to philtrum ratio: 2.0-2.25
measured by dividing the height of the chin to the height of the philtrum (distance between the upper lip to the lowest part of the nose).

forehead height: 3 fingers
measured by clenching your fingers together and seeing how many you can fit on your forehead horizontally before reaching your hairline.

very legit. for midface its way better to be slightly compact than slightly long. i actually think the ideal ratio is like 1.02

3 fingers feels short for forehead. thats how big my forehead is and i always need to wear my hair up and give the illusion of more height

lower third ratio is also very important. almost all GL men have lower thirds as their longest third. 35-40% of total facial height is a good range.

1 or slightly above but below 1.1. Chico is 1, and he's the harmony king.

3 fingers probably is too little.

Also IPD should be 46-48% of bizygomatic.

measuring digitally from a photo has the advantage of being pixel perfect, with the downside of possible lens distortion. if you're using a camera make sure you take the shot from maybe around 6 feet away to reduce that possibility. mirror would definitely be more accurate if done properly from the right perspective using the right tools.

the philtrum measurement is base of nose to stomion. you probably measured to the top of the lip. 3.13 would be a disgustingly large jay leno tier chin

yes, if your mouth is narrower than your nose.

for anyone looking to widen their mouths to fit the ratio better, one non-surgical option would be to use mouth wideners (go figure)



also, here is a picture of another model who fits the mouth to nose ratio more ideally than o'pry. tim borrmanns mouth to nose ratio is measured at 1.613, closer to the golden ratio.

My nose is just really wide (I'm black btw). I asked for a morph of what I might look like with rhino to make my nose smaller and it looks like the ratio of the male model on the bottom. I will look into the palate expanders tho.

very interesting, I think my mouth is averagely narrow so I will measure it and consider using that thing to widen my mouth
