Here are some examples of white facial markings and nomenclature for them. The horse on the left has a star on the forehead between and above the eyes.  A star often includes a cow-lick.  This horse also has a stripe (a narrow line on the bridge of the nose) and a snip located on the muzzle between the nostrils. The middle horse has an apron face, a wide blaze that includes the entire muzzle but excludes the eyes. The right side horse has a blaze that excludes the eyes.  Horses with a blaze that includes the eyes are said to have a bald face, and they often have blue eyes.
