face reading eyes

In literature eyes are romanticised to be the window to the soul. When face reading, eyes can be just as transparent. In face reading, eyes – along with the mouth – are a feature that moves on the face. For this reason they will attract out attention and the way someone moves their eyes provides clues to their character.

It is thought that the first feature a baby sees on his or her mother’s face are the eyes. Looking at a person’s eyes has a greater significance because people naturally have more emotion connected with looking at eyes. Someone who is nervous or shy will find it harder to look into someone’s eye than any other feature.

As always face reading can be ethical, life enhancing, positive and constructive.
