Can Your Eyebrows Get You a Promotion?

There are ways that your face can help you succeed. No, I’m not talking plastic surgery.  But there are little changes you could make that will have a real significance for your personal energy, and can support a new way of being in the world. 

For example, if you allow your eyebrows to grow in a bit more fully, or add to them with make-up, this can have the effect of improving your self-confidence and assertiveness. It can also contribute to your ability to be decisive, get organized in life, and take action to achieve your goals. 

If you draw in your eyebrows so that they’re longer, this can add to your ability to tolerate the “toxic” people around you. In other words, you'll be more able to deal with a variety of personalities without getting too drained. It’s said that people with long eyebrows can maintain many friendships, because they aren’t so stressed by other people's dramas!

Most men would not be comfortable using make-up to alter the appearance of their eyebrows, but there is one thing they can do that women can’t—grow a beard! If a man doesn't have a strong or well-defined jaw line, he can grow a short and neat beard that defines or enhances his jaw line, and this can increase his level of confidence, drive, and the ability to move forward in life, especially in his job.

But watch out, because in all these cases, such changes could also stimulate your competitiveness, your tendency to be judgmental about others, and even increase the potential for impatience, frustration or anger.

Changing your hair color or style will also impact your energetic nature.  Dying your hair red, or making it very curly or spiky could increase your focus on having more fun in life! But it might also make you a bit more excitable, or increase any existing anxiety. If your hair is already very curly, straightening it could positively influence your ability to stick with a project and bring it to completion. Changing red hair to a different color will have the same effect.

Men who are balding on top are often very self-conscious about it, but Chinese face reading reveals that this type of baldness indicates a person with charm, a great sense of humor and an overall love of life! If a man wears a toupee or gets a hair transplant, this effect is diminished or eliminated. Men who shave their heads also receive a boost in their ability to have fun in life, and can be very romantic in relationship!

One thing women might want to avoid is heavily lining their lower eyelids with dark eyeliner. This part of the face is linked to the emotion of anger, and emphasizing it with make-up can actually boost the potential to become angry. Research in Western science has shown that the lower eyelid tenses up only when someone is feeling angry. This validates its meaning in Chinese medicine.  So go easy on the eyeliner, and enjoy a successful week.
