Why you might want to use makeup to play up your left eye

Have you ever noticed that one side of your face always seems to look better than the other? Whether you consistently find yourself angling your "good side" to the camera or just think that your silhouette is more flattering from a particular vantage point, science now suggests that there's a clear winner when it comes to most people's more flattering facial half

According to a recent study at Wake Forest University, the left side of people's faces is usually considered the most attractive. When researchers took photos of both sides of the face and had viewers rank the attractiveness, the left side usually scored higher. The images were even flipped in some cases so the right looked like the left and vice versa - and people still chose the image on the left.

Glamour Magazine's beauty blog speculates that this could have something to do with the fact that research has shown that the left side of the face is more expressive. Either way, it might be worth it to put a little extra effort into applying your blinc tube mascara and liquid eyeliner on your left eye!
