About

Anaface is a web-based photo analysis application that evaluates user-submitted profile images and provides a "facial beauty" score, which is determined by geometric calculations based on several points distributed across the face.

History

Anaface.com was launched in May 2009 by the St. Louis-based consulting service company Atama Group.[5]

Features

Upon uploading a photo to the site, the web application generates a beauty score using 17 data points run through a series of geometric calculations. The score is based on bilateral symmetry and a variety of other facial-structural ratios, including the width of the nose and length of the ears in comparison to that of the entire face.
