How To Contour For Your Face Shape
Contouring techniques can vary according to your face shape whether it is round, long or oval, and so it is essential to identify before application.
Square: If the width of your forehead, cheekbones, and jaw are all nearly the same soften the edges by contouring along the perimeter of the face.
Round: You have a round-shaped face if the width and length are equal and have gentle, rounded corners. An angular shape can be created by contouring the sides of the forehead, along with the temples, below the cheekbones and on the jawline.
Oval: The forehead is larger than the jawline, the face length is larger than the width of the cheekbones and the angle of your jaw is rounded. Focus on contouring facial features such as slimming down a wide nose.
Long: The forehead, cheekbones, and jawline are similar in size, but the face length is the largest. The illusion of a shorter shape can be created by applying contour along the forehead and jawline.
Heart: The forehead is the widest part of the face; the chin is pointed and there may be a widow’s peak at the hairline. Contour the bottom half of the face to soften the shape of the chin.
Diamond: A pointed chin and high cheekbones, with a narrower hairline than that of a heart-shaped face. Contour the sides and centre of their forehead to make it appear longer.
In the beauty industry, makeup lovers and professionals use these techniques daily, and they can take your look to another level by adapting them to your routine.
