Fit Your Face

Hey Dolls,
Dressing for your shape is critical if you desire the most flattered body appearance. The same goes for your makeup! Makeup application can flatter your specific face shape when the right colours, textures, and techniques are used. You may be asking,  'How can I enhance my natural structure ? Should I be trying to lengthen, soften or round my features?' 

I hope to answer those questions by offering a few tips specified to four different face shapes. Below you will find quick tips that will allow you to find a look that best suits you.

Face Shape: Oval

Celebs: Eva Longoria, Kim Kardashian, Megan Fox

Attributes: Same-width forehead and lower face, longer sides 

Your ideal makeup look: To cut down the length of your face a bit, apply a rosy or bronzy blush horizontally across the cheeks; be sure to define your eyes and lips. 

Face Shape: Square

Attributes: Angular jawbone and hairline 

Celebs: Jennifer Garner, Rachel McAdams, Rosario Dawson

Your ideal makeup look: Soften your angular features with a makeup look that's soft, feminine, and filled with dainty shimmer.


Face Shape: Round

Attributes: Forehead and lower face are the same width and prominent cheeks 

Celebs: Brenda Song, Charlize Theron, Kirsten Dunst

Your ideal makeup look: Add definition to your face by applying bronzer to the forehead, jawline and cheeks; pair with smoky eyes.

Face Shape: Heart

Attributes: Wider forehead and narrow chin 

Celebs: Ginnifer Goodwin, Reese Witherspoon, Tyra Banks

Your ideal makeup look: To draw focus away from your prominent chin and cheekbones, try wearing feminine, sheer and soft tones;add a nice pop of color on your mouth and cheeks to downplay the strong cheekbones.

Hope this was helpful !
