Think we all have different tastes where beauty is concerned? Well, cognitive psychology shows us that an average face (made from several other faces) is almost always judged as more attractive than its constituent faces… Why? It may be for the simple reason that an average face is closer to the mental idea we have of a prototypical face and thus easier for the brain to process.
