What is the proper, or best, usage of: face, visage et figure ?
A very tricky question here, Michael ! Basically, all three have more or less the same meaning as face in English but with some nuances in the usage.
Overall, the three words describe the same area of your face, but I won’t recommend using the French word face unless you want to be mean to someone.
I hope this helps.
