Men don't always prefer feminine faces Published: May 2, 2014

Think supermodels are the most desirable women in the world? Not always. A study of nearly 2,000 men from 28 countries published Wednesday found that certain beauty traits such as feminine faces, aren’t as desirable in less-developed nations, according to Yahoo Shine.

While biologists at the University of Turku in Finland say that overall, men desired “feminine-looking” women — those with softer, delicate facial features — the degree to which they did so varied, depending on the wellbeing of the country, measured by its average life span, maternal and infant mortality and other factors. Results showed that in unhealthier countries, guys were drawn to women with “masculine” (stronger, more prominent) faces than those with softer ones.
