Human faces tilted up are rated as more dominant compared to faces tilted down (Mignault and
Chauderi, 2003), and masculinized male and female faces are rated as more dominant than
feminized faces when gaze is directed at the viewer (Main, Jones, and Debruine, 2009)


The typical male perspective on a female face (viewed from above) increases its femininity and
attractiveness, and the typical female perspective on a male face (viewed from below)
increases its masculinity, which will affect its attractiveness in different ways for different
raters.

Been doing this, realized this effect long ago plus I think some faces have better features by angle.

Not just muscle development. Let that sink in

Faces that are tilted up increase fWHR

[font=Arial, sans-serif]Research by a group U.S. scientists have found evidence that titling the head either up or down, is done expressly to appear more intimidating to others.[/font]


[font=Arial, sans-serif]Previous research has found evidence that the facial width-to-height ratio or fWHR is an “honest signal” of the level of testosterone possessed by an individual since it is related to human male cranial growth.[/font]
[font=Arial, sans-serif]The fWHR is the physical measurement of the width of the face from the left cheekbone to the right, divided by the upper facial height, measured as the distance between the upper lip and the mid-brow. A high fWHR is linked to a high testosterone-to-estrogen ratio (high testosterone, but low estrogen) which helps bone growth including the cheek-bones, mandibles, chin, and forward growth of the eyebrow ridges.[/font]
[font=Arial, sans-serif]Recent research has found that males with high fWHR are seen as untrustworthy and racially-prejudiced than thinner faced individuals. Interestingly, these are not necessarily incorrect assessments. Indeed fWHR have been positively linked to greater reactive aggression, feelings of personal power and overall untrustworthiness.[/font]

[font=Arial, sans-serif]The researchers point out that “Humans may have developed this sensitivity to fWHR in order to avoid the physical danger or loss of resources represented by greater fWHR individuals.” They continue, “Indeed, recent research indicates that wider-faced men may be particularly dangerous in combative situations.”[/font]
[font=Arial, sans-serif]For example, wider faced men of the Namibian !Kung San, a primitive human tribe, have been involved in greater violence. Also, forensic samples have shown that men with high fWHR are less likely to be killed by violent contact such as stabbings and strangulations. Those with high fWHR also tend to be less cooperative when working in groups, and tend to rate themselves higher on aggression.[/font]
[font=Arial, sans-serif]“Thus, evidence from multiple lines of research converge in indicating that greater fWHR individuals may be more dangerous in social contexts in which they are challenged, and therefore may be perceived as more intimidating,” say the researchers.[/font]
[font=Arial, sans-serif]Thus, there may be important advantages to appearing physically intimidating. “Therefore”, the researchers speculate, “just as non-venomous snakes may come to resemble their deadly counterparts, individuals might sometimes behave so as to be perceived with a greater fWHR, and consequently, as more intimidating.[/font]
