How to draw a human face using the Intuitive Geometry method

How to draw a human face using simple geometry Fig 1

At any point (A) draw a circle of any size. Find any point on the circumference (B) and draw a circle with the same radius (AB). Continue around drawing a circle at any new intersection (C etc.) on the circumference.
