Women can accurately scope a man’s income from merely looking at his face for just a few seconds, scientists reveal.
Men who are wealthy often tend to have healthier diets and lifestyles and this is seemingly reflected in their skin and the ‘look’ of their eyes.
The study found participants were more likely to correctly gauge a household income from men’s faces rather than women’s.
‘We found that people are able to detect a person’s mate value through his or her face,’ said the researchers in a paper just published in Personality and Individual Differences, a journal.
‘Among men, facial attractiveness significantly predicted their household income . . . It has been suggested that developmental stability associated with social class can be conveyed by facial features.
‘It appears that perceivers catch this association between face and social class more easily when observing men’s than women’s faces.’

Despite being a part of one of the most successful UK bands, Westlife-singer Shane Filan was declared bankrupt in 2012.
His company with brother Finbarr, Shafin Developments, went bust after borrowing millions from the Bank of Ireland and Ulster Bank.
During the economic boom the siblings borrowed millions from the Irish banks to build a 90-strong housing development along with a nursing home and supermarket in Dromahair, Co Leitrim – close to Shane’s home in Sligo.
These plans were scrapped when the company went bust and Shane filed for bankruptcy in Kingston County Court.
Relocating to Surrey, Shane and wife Gillian were forced to sell their home in Sligo – valued at €10 million during the financial boom – for €800,000 in 2014.
