What are good cheekbones?

On TV you always hear women speaking of a handome man having 'good cheekbones'- what on earth does this mean?

What do good cheek bones look like? What do bad ones look like? How do you tell the difference?

I've never been able to figure this out.

  • Basically, they are talking of high, pronounced, "chiseled" cheekbones.

    I have no care the size or shape of that feature, personally.

    Lorahayes gave two links to photos that are (more or less) what is meant.

    High cheekbones have also been proven to subconsciously bring the thought of mistrust in a person. Many of film villains possess said attribute.

  • around the eye socket...the outer edge of your face.. there are your cheekbones.. Nice cheekbones would be pronounced and reflects light in a shape of a "C"

  • I have always hated the word "cheekbones." It doesn't make much sense to me,either.

    I mean, there have got to be a sh*t ton of better ways to compliment a person.

  • Hmm, usually cheekbones is more of a thing with women's faces and jawlines are more of a thing with mens.
