1. Size

Large and Prominent Cheekbones

As I mentioned in the introduction, large and prominent cheekbones correlate with strong metal element. Thus, people with large and prominent cheekbones are authoritative and ambitious. These people are strong-willed, ambitious, independent, and dynamic.

These people have a lot of pride and a certain bossy quality associated with their personality. Usually, they want people to listen and do things in their way.

One of their main negative traits is the high expectations for others. People with large cheekbones don’t want to settle for anything less than their ideals.

Flat and Small Cheekbones

In Chinese face reading, flat and small cheekbones show a person who resists authority. In life, they face great challenges when they try to attain leadership positions. Normally, these people are self-starters.

Not only people with flat and small cheekbones don’t have much authority, they also have problems with their self-esteem. If these people become leaders, they lead others by compassion and inspiration rather than power and rule.

They prefer to work alone without being bossed around. They may achieve great things in life, yet they can feel unsatisfied with what they had attained.

2. Position

High Cheekbones

High Cheekbones
High Cheekbones

The Chinese art of reading faces tells that high cheekbones belong to arrogant people. People see them as troublesome as they usually invite trouble into their lives.

This kind of cheekbones is usually located close to the eyes. Yet, if these cheekbones are too close to the eyes, then it means that the owner has a tendency to cause harm to others.

Remember that high cheekbones are recognized by position while prominent cheekbones are known by size. They are 2 different kinds of cheekbones. People with high cheekbones are also said to be unwilling to let others do things they believe are wrong.

Low Cheekbones

People with low cheekbones are not quite arrogant as those with high cheekbones. Instead, low cheekbones indicate the willingness to follow orders.

Therefore, these people are usually obedient as they have such an easy-going nature. In Chinese face reading, men with low cheekbones are said to be dominated by their wives.

3. Shape

Angular Cheekbones

If you have angular cheekbones, you are sharp, astute, and decisive. You are a perfect candidate for a leadership position.

Chinese face readers tell us that people with angular and sharp cheekbones can handle emergency situations very well. This could be something as small as meeting deadlines, which is what they are very proficient at.

These people are also gifted with the ability to use words precisely. Yet, they should use their sharp words to inspire others instead of criticizing them.

Slanted Cheekbones

If cheekbones are slanted downward from the temple, we have a person who is very curious about learning other people’s cultures and languages. That is, these people want to make new friends, eat new food, travel to new places in foreign countries.

Thus, people with downward-slanted cheekbones are likely to immerse themselves in cultural adventures for the sake of learning.

When the cheekbones are set close to the nose, this indicates someone who is a great mentor with authority.

If the cheekbones are set close to the ears, we have a strong boss who is fair and generous.

Over Protruding Cheekbones

In Chinese face reading, over protruding cheekbones are a sign of unyielding quality. This kind of cheekbones is the intensified version of the prominent cheekbones.

It is said that people with overly protruding cheekbones are stubborn and like to resist the status quo. With the extra arrogant quality attached to them, these people bring pressure to others even though they are great at strategies and tactics.

4. Moles on Cheekbones

Generally, moles on cheekbones have similar meanings to moles on the cheek as they are located in the same place

Moles on cheekbones or on your cheeks relate to the theme of power, authority, and diligence.

A mole on your cheekbone means that you have a positive outlook about life and have enough power to be successful. Yet, this mole also tells that you are a self-center person who needs to learn to care for others.

Mole on the left cheekbone indicates a person who spends money on things extravagantly. If the mole is on the right of the cheekbone, we have someone who is blessed with health.
