~ When reading faces, the first thing to notice is the eyes. They say, the eyes are the windows to the soul. Eyes can tell you a lot about what a person is thinking, feeling, or trying to express. The rate of blinking will also tell you a lot about their state of mind. When a person is shocked, he may forget to blink for a few moments. A girl trying to seduce a boy may blink her eyes quite a few times in a seductive way.
~ Next, observe the mouth of the person. If the person is smiling, it may indicate that he is thinking or feeling happy, content, or satisfied. A slight twitch of the upper lip may indicate aggressiveness, anger, or disgust. You can easily notice when someone is frowning upon something. If you catch a person lying, you may notice a slight twitch in the corner of the mouth. The person may also refuse or avoid eye contact, if he/she is trying to hide something.
~ Sometimes, a person may hide their negative emotions behind the mask of a smiling face. However, you can notice the person is annoyed by looking at the pupils, slightly frowning brows, and the slight grinding of teeth.
~ A gloomy expression can be easily understood if the person has teary eyes, a drooping mouth, and is taking long, sad sighs. A person who is worried may have his brows pulled together and may have a thoughtful look.
~ A wrinkled forehead with tense, angry eyes, indicates an angry person.
