The eyes are half way between top of skull and bottom (chin)

from hairline to chin is divided in thirds: 1) hairline, 2)brow ridge 3)bottom of nose to bottom of chin

from bottom of nose to chin divided in thirds: 1)bottom of nose, 2)parting of lips, 3)top of chin (or bottom of mouth muscle or in profile indentation) to bottom of chin
(an easier solution to that is to say that just below bottom of lip if halfway between bottom of nose and bottom of chin)

head 5 eyes wide (.75 of height of skull) one eye width in between eyes and lateral to eyes
