But although the variables in appearance allow a beautiful individualization between each plant, the arrangement of the petals and form of the plant creates a unity amid the diversity. Similarly, the nose has a magical way of conveying someone’s ancestry, while still displaying their individuality. It acts as a storyteller, sharing their ancestors’ stories …

When it comes to facial harmony, balance is a very delicate aspect. Despite the flawless images that infiltrate our newsfeeds, most people have at least one feature that is disproportionate to their overall facial structure.
