One of the concepts I heard when I was younger when referring to a person's facial attractiveness is something called the golden ratio. You may have heard of it, and it is used to determine whether your length and width of your face is visually balanced, thus giving you a generally appealing look. Now, there is a new cosmetic fad making rounds on TikTok and it has something to do with the term canthal tilt. What exactly is it? Dr. Kassir, a plastic surgeon, spoke with Glamour and says that it is the angle or slant of the outer corners of the eyes in relation to the horizontal plane of the face. And plastic surgeons are concerned that it might instill skewed standards of beauty.
