Think about exaggerated features that may look good on certain people, bigger eyes, bigger lips, etc. Personally, I don't think having a symmetrical face automatically makes the person good looking. What do you think?

Symmetry and how much they conform to a typical canon tends to be society's criteria for judging looks, but the people I found most appealing usually had some asymmetry to their face, like a beauty mark on one side, slightly asymmetrical nose, expressions they made often which weren't symmetrical (a lopsided smirk), etc.
It's a bit different between what's ideal for fashion and photography and film and so forth and what qualities make me really drawn to a person.
I think symmetry tends to make people quite photogenic for sure. But photogenic people aren't always the most eye-catching people for me in person, but their smooth and symmetrical looks do tend to kind of make it easy for them to be popular, a "straightforward" face.
Oh well, I'm having a hard time describing it, but typically I like the slightly-flawed gemstone, maybe because I was more into fine arts than photography (I liked people's flaws for drawing portraits, it brings out a less generic "character"). It's all in the eye of the beholder anyway.2

I guess it could help. It gives the face a clean, neat look in terms of feature placement. But there's definitely attractive people with slightly asymmetric to very asymmetric faces (although everyone is slightly asymmetric). Stella Maxwell, a VS Angel is rather asymmetric in the face.1
