‘Netflix face’ – high cheekbones, feline features

As Seen on Mail Online

You could be forgiven for thinking that ‘Netflix face’ is an affliction that comes from watching too much TV, overindulging in streaming boxsets and movies. Yet dailymail.co.uk explains that the ‘Netflix face’ refers to facial features and characteristics shared by many of the top female leads.

Mail Online discussed the phenomenon of ‘Netflix face’ with input from Dr Ross Perry and other experts.

The article explained:

“Women with ‘angular, feline’ faces are being cast in leading roles in Netflix original shows as the shape shows ‘power and control'”

This is said to create a distinct personality that helps viewers to recognise the characters.

The article goes on to say:

“…it’s also favoured by producers, as it works well on smaller screens because angularity provides contrast and works well with make-up free skin giving the appearance of a more realistic scene”

Famous names associated with the look include Emma Mackey (Sex Education), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit), Lily Collins (Emily in Paris) and Hollywood A-lister, Emma Stone.

Dr Perry concluded:

“All the faces have a fairly angular profile which means that they have relatively high cheekbones and wide open eyes but then also a slimmer jawline and this is often not a classical beauty sort of shape.

“However it can be very useful for creating distinct personalities and characterisations of certain people I wouldn’t go as far as to say it looks quirky but it is certainly different yet not unattractive and I think the facial structures for these suit their roles that they have been chosen for.

“Classical beauty typically tends to have a more proportioned face in terms of where the cheekbones are in relation to the nose and the jaw are and that would often tend to gives more of an attractive appearance.

“I’m sure it’s set to stay’.”

  • Cheekbones – cheek fillers are a popular non-surgical option that adds volume to the cheek area, creating more pronounced cheekbones for a more striking, youthful and angular look.
  • Lipslip enhancement fillers can define lips for a more flattering and seductive look.
  • JawlineBelkyra is an injectable treatment that works to reduce excess fat below the chin, producing a more defined jawline. Other options for producing a more defined jaw include the 8-point facelift using advanced dermal fillers, or the thread lift.
