    My cheeks have always been like this and my mum says I look malnourished and unhealthy. I put on weight in freshers a couple years ago but my face looked horrible when I had more weight. Didn't suit me. I'm back to normal now and so is my face but I am slightly concerned about when I get older and my face starts to look even more drawn.

    Obv this isn't me but this is just an idea:

    I can't tell if it's just my mum trying to fatten me up or if it does actually look bad.
    I think the gaunt look looks really good on men but I dunno if it looks to harsh on women. Looks fine on models but don't know about the average girl.

    What's the point in posting pictures that aren't of you? You might (probably will) look nothing like them.

    Don't compare yourself to others, it's your face and unless you wanna get some plastic jobs done - you can't change it and you have to learn to live with it. Maybe learn to contour it if it bothers you this much but I'm sure you look good!

    To me it looks like you just have a defined facial structure.

    As a man, I find it less attractive than a "filled" out face. It can look a bit unhealthy, but if you are already a healthy weight and that is how you naturally look, don't fatten yourself up. If you are underweight then get yourself to a healthy weight. Prioritise health over looks, although most of the time people look a lot more attractive when they are at a healthier weight especially if they exercise a lot.

    Because I know that my face is equally as gaunt as the woman in those pics but I didn't want to upload a picture of myself. The focus of those pictures is the cheek volume, I'm not asking whether you think she's pretty or not which is why I didn't choose the most flattering pics of her because I didn't want that to sway people's opinions. And that's also why I didn't upload a picture of myself because I don't want people focussing on my other features.

    Thanks yeah I thought this would be quite a popular opinion because I know guys like when girls are a bit cuddly (in a healthy way) so I thought it would probably apply to faces as well.

    At the end of the day those features will suit some women (or men) and not others. I had a girlfriend once who was very very thin and had a very "gaunt" (as you put it, though that also refers to colouring) face and she looked amazing. That said, more recent pictures of her - a little older and pinker and more filled-out, she looks even better, so I don't know.

    I'd have to see a picture of you to judge *shrug*

    Obviously facial structure is attractive. The chubbier ones look less attractive and have weaker genes.

    Your facial features are a factor in how your facial structure looks. If you want useful answers you’ll have to show your face, then people can say if you pull it off or not.

    Personally I would love to have a slim and defined face, my cheeks are much too filled out for my liking.

    I don't want to know if I can pull it off, I'm asking what the general consensus is. E.g. most girls love a defined jawline on guys, most guys love juicy lips, some guys like a defined jaw on a girl, others think it looks manly etc etc.

    Your pics weren't helping much so I googled some random D-list celebs I found attractive for gauntness assessment and have come to the conclusion that I don't think I really care.

    ...you're welcome?

    They look fine to me. I mean, it wouldn't be bad to put on a bit of weight (not a lot is needed) but as long as you feel healthy and good then it doesn't matter.
