It might not launch a thousand ships but this is the face that won the title Britain’s most natural beauty. Eighteen year old Florence Colgate’s face is considered almost flawless. It’s perfectly symmetrical with large eyes, full lips, and high cheek bones.
I had to send in a picture with just wearing like no make-up and from that I got called to say I got through and I went to the top five out of eight thousand people. It’s just unbelievable. I honestly did not expect to get this far at all.
The competition wasn’t just about subjective beauty, it was settled with science.Researchers say that distances between facial features and the width and length of are deciding factors for perfection. And Colgate scored very close to the ideal.
I think I just look at my face and I just see me, I don’t really see, like science. It’s just yeah…
Colgate works part time at a local fish and chips shop. But she says her new found fame doesn’t seem to have made her more popular with customers.
I haven’t really noticed, obviously we still have regular people that come in every week, but no I haven’t been really...I think it’s over-sitting, I don’t know. I think it’s just a busy fish and chips shop anyway.
Colgate plans to study business management at university unless of course a lucrative modeling contract shows its face.
