As if the world doesn’t make us feel bad enough about the way we look, one picture released in 2016 makes us feel even worse:

However, before you get too down on yourself, the woman in the photo with the most desirable face doesn’t actually exist.

The composite image was created from over 1,000 requests made to plastic surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva to determine the most desirable face.

The London-based surgeon has kept track of requests over the past 10 years, and many of them resemble features of famous celebrities. In fact, Dr. Silva says that a huge majority of his patients come into the office with a picture of a well-known person and say that they “want to look like this.”

In an interview, Dr. Silva said, "You will often have a consultation with a patient who will present you with a picture of a well-known person and will say, 'I want to look like that.' Obviously the challenge for me is to look at their facial proportions and advise whether this will be a good look for them after surgery. [Sometimes] we do have to amend the plans because there are limits to how far you can improve what nature has given you."

He says that it’s often a challenge to determine whether or not a certain celebrity feature will actually look good on the face of his patients. However, characteristics like eyelid shape or a nose tend to work well with most face proportions.

Luckily, though, the doctor says that most patients are realistic with their wants and know that a nose like Kate Middleton’s won’t exactly make them look like her.

The requests he gets usually make sense, because the desired features tend to be mathematically desirable. He says that Kate Middleton’s nose is almost perfect mathematically as it has a 106-degree tip rotation, which is an angle that people find most attractive according to research.

After gathering up all of his requests and making a realistic photo out of them, he concluded that the most desired features were the following:

1. Jennifer Lopez's eyebrows

Let's face it: the singer is always looking sharp, but her eyebrow game is definitely particularly strong. She's got just that perfect balance of not too little and not too much, and some great arches as well.

2. Keira Knightley's eyes

Knightley's always had that doe-eyed look down. It's easy to see why her big, brown eyes would be coveted.

As we already said, it's mathematically perfect. I'm no mathematician, but I'm guessing if a nose was mathematically perfect, this is what it would look like.

Cruz's full, pouty smile has always lit up our screens.

5. Cher's jaw line

That bone structure is gorgeous! No wonder people aspire to have a chin like hers.

6. Miley Cyrus' forehead

A forehead may seem like a strange feature to focus on or change, but just in case you're wondering who's got the most desirable one, it's Cyrus.

Jolie is absolutely stunning, so it's no surprise she would be somewhere on this list.

8. Reese Witherspoon's skin

There's no doubt that Witherspoon's skin is always glowing. Who wouldn't want to mimic her look?

9. Selena Gomez's chin

Gomez is beautiful for sure, but who would have guessed that her chin is the feature people most request to look like?

While the girl in the composite picture is the combination of all these traits, it doesn’t mean that she is ideal to everyone. So, take the photo with a grain of salt and learn to love your face just the way it is.
