Your eyebrows are a pretty big deal. You may not realize it until something causes them to go awry (Remember that scene in My Best Friend’s Girl, when Jason Biggs has his shaved off? Oh, I’m the only one who saw that movie? Anyway…), but they do a lot—protecting your eyes, helping people recognize you, and yes, giving hints to your personality.
Jean Haner, a facial reading expert who helps directors cast celebs who have faces that match their movie character’s personality, says both Chinese facial reading, which stems from Chinese medicine, and western science have found that we react to people’s faces without realizing that we’re doing it. “It’s an unconscious thing, so we can’t help it. And according to Chinese face reading, you’re born with your eyebrows for a reason. We all come with a [facial] blue print—it’s a map of who you are—so any changes you make to your face, including your eyebrows, can shake things up. It creates an internal change that can be a positive thing that breaks you out of old patterns and gets you going again, or hurts you if you’re not aware of the effects a certain change could have.”
So check out what Haner says your current eyebrow look is communicating to other people, and if you’re looking for a change, don’t rule out a new trend just yet. It may do you good.
2NATURALLY THIN BROWS
Cara may be in Taylor Swift’s squad, but their eyebrows are speaking different languages. Taylor’s are way thinner naturally, and if yours are too, then you may struggle with making decisions and like to get input from others before moving forward with a concrete plan. It may also mean that you have self-confidence issues, so surrounding yourself with friends who lift you up is wise. And since you like to take as few risks as possible, you carefully visualize how situations might play themselves out—which, in Taylor’s case, makes sense because her new Wildest Dreams video looks a whole lot like the VMAs-winning Blank Space. Hey, if it ain’t broke…right, Tay?
