Traditionally, Chinese people have used several unique techniques for divination. Up till today, many people are still relying on some traditional methods of divination techniques in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
One of the most popular divination techniques is known as 'mian xiang' (面相), commonly known to people as face reading. Face reading is the interpretation of facial features to predict the future and to give the person deeper insights about his/her personal life. The interpretation of facial features usually covers 4 main areas: Luck, health, wealth, and interpersonal relationship.
Face reading is predominantly seen as a respected and integral part of social and business culture in a Chinese society. Face reading experts often advise business owners and leaders on important decisions, in the hope that it can influence a positive outcome.
You may not realise but to some extent, all of us read faces all the time. When we get acquainted with someone, we unknowingly assess them and form opinions about them. Based on a book written by Daniel Hamermesh, a U.S. economist and Professor of Economics at Royal Holloway, University of London, attractive people earn an average of 3 to 4% more than people with below average looks. He found that attractive people also tend to get hired more easily, get faster promotions, and more adored by line managers and colleagues.
Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, Medical Director of Radium Medical Aesthetics shares with us some tips on making slight changes to your facial features to improve your quality of life.
SMOOTH AND ROUND FOREHEAD FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE
Forehead is one of the most important aspects of the face. It forms about one-third of the entire face. A smooth and round forehead represents your future and how smooth sailing your life is. Keeping your forehead smooth, clear and bright is important because it is considered auspicious. A high and fleshy forehead is usually interpreted as intelligent and having a brilliant luck in career.
Blemishes such as scars and pigmentation are considered inauspicious and should be removed immediately. A sunken forehead represents bad luck with career and no authority or influence over anyone.

LIVELY, STRIKING EYES FOR INTELLIGENCE
Sitting just below the forehead is the spirit of the face and the person. The eyes are considered one of the most important features to a feng shui master. To be successful in everything you do, your vision must be clear and unblocked. Traditionally, Chinese doctors practising traditional Chinese medicine use the eyes to diagnose several illnesses because they reflect our energy levels.
Good fortune will be bestowed on the person who has big and bright eyes. The eyelids should be lifted and not block your vision so that you look more youthful and energetic. Lifted eyelids naturally make you look younger and intelligent.
Hooded eyelids make a person look sleepy and tired. Eyes should also be clear of lines, wrinkles and eye bags as these are often seen as obstructions to your good fortune.
