What is your favorite thing about your face and what does that feature say about you? Maybe your lips are perpetually plump and pouty. Maybe it’s a great, happy smile that draws joy out of those you meet. You might have the cheekbones of a Greek goddess, or a perfectly shaped nose. It could be that your more favorite feature would be considered “flawed” or “abnormal”, like quirky, crooked teeth or freckles across the bridge of your nose. Do you have a round face or an angular face? A dark complected face or a fair one?
Whatever your favorite feature, it’s generally true that the eyes are the first thing others are drawn to. It’s true that the eyes are the window to the soul. Metaphorically speaking, your eyes can see thousands of miles both outwardly and inwardly. No matter the color or shape, your eyes tell a unique story of who you are, where you have been, and how you perceive and receive the world around you.
Many of us also have an exterior “facial feature” in our ever present eyewear. Believe it or not, eyewear says a lot about who we are too! From the thick-rimmed glasses for hipsters to the sleek or rimless glasses for athletes, glasses can be a prominent form of self-expression and an accessory to highlight your favorite features. No matter your style or shape, your face is beautiful!
