Eyebrows, eyes, nose, and lips scrunch closer together due to foreshortening. Specific distances; the spaces in between, vary depending on the angle itself. Try drawing in the forehead "keystone" in perspective between the eyebrows and above the ridge of the nose for reference; straight ahead, it looks like:
