It all begins with the eyes - consciousness and perception. Most people are drawn to look directly at the eyes first, unless there is a unique feature on the face that calls their attention. When two people meet, eye contact allows them, within a few seconds, to determine a connection or not. Eyes are the windows of the soul and reflect our inner self and issues.
Eye color is important, with light eye often more favorable then dark -- the lighter the better. Uniquely colored eyes, lighter shades of blue, seem to trigger higher frequency spiritual significance for some.
The person who looks away or has small squinty eyes is secretive and perhaps a dysfunctional personality, someone who does not want to relate. In contrast, a wandering or shifty eye portends a nature given to unsettled and inconsistent habits.
Direct eye contact reflects a personality, that can be controlling, strong, yet honest.
Unevenly set eyes convey that the person is capable of seeing things from a different perspective and applying lateral thought processes to resolving problems.
Ideally with a balanced personality the face has one eye width between each eye; it is even and thus balanced. Eyes closer set to the nose, imply a more limited view of the world. This person may prefer codependent relationships, often remaining at home and not leaving the family once reaching adulthood. This also goes to the person whose life path is parental caretaker. In this case, the person may feel cheated in life, have emotional problems involving moods swings. Professional help should be sought.
People with eyes set wider apart, may be more open minded about life and reality. They often fall into the holistic sciences as a means of self awareness, and find themselves in creative careers that reflect their inner issues. They need space, to be sure and can move on with the drop of a hat. Some have learning challenges, but that does not mean you should be the one to point out their faults, or they will leave. Not bad as friend, but not good in romantic relationships.
Deep set eyes go to deep, intense personality issues. and a serious mind These are the observers who like creative things and inspiring others with artistic expression. They are soul searchers, often here to make a difference with their endeavors. They are romantic and sometimes spontaneous. They are of sound judgement, compassionate and serious minded.
If you look at the eyelids of people through the millennia who were seers, great philosophers, creative geniuses, writers ... you will note they that many had heavy eyelids.

The shape of the eyebrows is easily altered with tweezing or waxing excess hair. One must note the end result to associate with personality type. Many people enhance their eyebrows with pencil or eye shadows. As people age, or if they are sick, the partial or full loss of one or both eyebrows is possible.

Forehead - Head
The forehead is the largest part of the face in most cases. Generally, male foreheads have a relatively flat slope from the hairline to the brow, where women's foreheads have a convex curve both vertically and horizontally. Male foreheads often have a heavy bony ridge just above the eyes, in a line beneath the eyebrows. This is called brow bossing. A brow lift is a soft tissue procedure which tightens skin on the forehead and raises the eyebrows. This is usually done with an incision at the hairline, or endoscopically from smaller incisions within the scalp hair. This has the effect of opening up the face and making you look less stern and tired. However, it has no effect on the underlying bone, so its effects are not as dramatic as bony work. A brow lift is often done at the same time as bony forehead work.

The appearance of wrinkle and lines on the face are usually genetic. They may also speak of a troubled life, too much time spent in the sun, and are sometimes called 'worry lines.' Once again, in this day and age, they can be concealed with botox, collagen, skin peels, makeup, and skin creams.
