There is a good chance that at some point, you have heard the phrase, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." Yes, that can be true, but there are some distinct features that make someone physically more attractive to the common eye. Through continued evolution, humans still seek basic essentials in a mate: good health, superior genes, and fertility.
Our brains subconsciously scan other people for these traits through a person's body and facial features. Clear, smooth skin, and a symmetrical face convey health, portray a youthful look, and are indicators of a person's genetics. When it comes to child bearing, men are more likely to find women that have big eyes, a thin jaw, and high cheekbones more attractive, as these characteristics depict health and youth.
There are some women though that only need one of these features to be a knockout - high cheekbones. There is nothing like looking at a woman with intense, sharp cheekbones; the uniqueness of her beauty is overwhelming. All of the women on this list are gorgeous, and a certain thanks to their unbelievable cheekbones is in order, because we would not be gawking at them otherwise.
