The perfect face may be impossible to define, but a new study has offered up these images as the ideal fit for the modern man and woman.

The computer programme that designed Mr and Mrs Perfect is generally used to create images of wanted criminals, but it has been used to alternative effect for this project.

With the ideal thickness of lips, nose length and width and hairline all thrown into the computer mix, the above image was the final result.

The pictures are the result of a two-month-long study led by facial mapping expert Dr Chris Solomon that asked people to put together a composite of the perfect face using the EFIT-V PhotoFit software used by UK police.

"It's important to note that these are the idealised faces according to those living in the UK, so a study in Asia or Africa for example would no doubt have different results," said Dr Solomon.

"For the male face of beauty, women drew a more feminine face than men - women rate a softer jaw-line, slimmer face, fuller lips and clean-shaven look as the most attractive, compared to the more masculine appearance that is considered the most attractive by men.

"Interestingly, for the female face of beauty women rated a sexier appearance as the most beautiful than their male counterparts - women perceived fuller lips, a slimmer face, larger eyes and higher cheekbones as the most beautiful, more so than the male population."

So what do you think - are these the perfect images for a men and women in 2015?
