Your face reveals a lot more than you might realize. For instance, it can "tell you things about your physical health, personality, and a certain time in your life."
via: CosmopolitanThat's coming from Jean Haner, the author of The Wisdom of Your Face, a book that explains what certain features mean to you and those who see you. Apparently, different facial features speak to your personality at different points in your life. Your forehead reveals things in your '20s, eyes in your '30s, mouth in your '50s, chin in your '60s, jaw in your '70s and the sides of your face in your '80s and '90s. But what about your '40s? Well, that's when your nose tells the story. So figure out what type you have from the pics below and see what your nose shape is telling others about you...and see if it's telling the truth!

Large or plump nose.

A small nose.

They're not necessarily perfectionists, but they're not sloppy with their work either. And they often get frustrated with people with large noses, since large-nosed folks can't always let things go," says Haner.
Petite and soft noses.These are indicative of friendly folks who are often family-oriented. You'll enjoy success but without as much power as some other types.

Scooped with an upwards pointing tip.

A nose that hooks down at the end.

If your nose juts out at the tip.
via: CosmopolitanThis means the end of your '40s will be more eventful than the beginning or middle. If it's pointy, you strive for perfection. If it's rounder, you're more easygoing.
