Canthal tilt

The canthal tilt is the angle of the lateral canthus (outside corner of eye) in relation to the medial canthus (inside corner of eye). A positive canthal tilt means the lateral canthus is higher on the face in proportion to the medial canthus, whereas a negative canthal tilt means the lateral canthus is lower on the face than the medial canthus. A negative canthal tilt is an extremely unattractive feature on men, as it looks droopy and unintimidating.

Note that a single flaw, does not automatically make a face ugly, or unnattractive, nor will an excess of flaws, as long as the attractive traits are in excess, the face can still be handsome/beautiful. For example, professional male model Brian Shimansky has a very prominent negative canthal tilt, a somewhat recessed chin, and a bent jaw. However the guy's eyebrow bone, gonial angle, chin width, facial harmony, eyes etc. Are so unbelievably top-tier Brian is still considered one of the best looking dudes on the planet.

In a study conducted, 93% of people preferred women with positive canthal tilts than those who did not.[1]
