Face Shapes Defined By Makeup

Everyone has different face shapes, and everyone always has the same goal of looking younger and thinner. You may be unique and not care about looking younger and thinner, but no matter what your face shape is, you can attain a youthful healthy glow. The goal is to find your oval face by highlighting your facial high points and coloring with contours what falls outside your oval. Find the best sculpting methods for each characterized face shape here.

Oval Face Shape

United States National Sales Director of Mary Kay, Connie Kittson, has a beautiful oval face. Oval faces have a curvilinear shape, and are considered the perfect shape face. They have a beautifully symmetry with broader cheeks and tapering slightly at forehead and chin. Its length is equal to one and a half times its width, with the forehead and the jaw the same width. Usually, no contouring or highlighting is needed, but the oval face shape supports most make-up trends...so have fun.

Round Face Shape

United States Mary Kay National Sales Director Bette Bridges has the circular, round face appearance. It is generally fuller. With its length approximately equal to its width. It holds youthful appearances longer. Contour jaw line, temples, and cheeks for a more oval look. Make the center of the face by Highlighting the forehead, chin and under eyes and top of cheekbones. Don't wear blush on the apple of cheeks because this will widen the face. The goal is to create an image of an oval face.

Square Face Shape

United States Mary Kay National Sales Director, Charlotte Kosena, has that strong square face featuring a broad forehead and angular jaw. This face shape suggests strength and has a great balanced symmetry. Contour the hairline on the temples and jaw at both corners to softer "the four corners" and apply blush to the apple of the cheeks. These things will make the face more oval in appearance. Highlight the center of the forehead, under the eyes nose and tip of the chin to draw attention to the middle of the face.

Oblong Face Shape

Stacey James, United States National Sales Director of Mary Kay, has one of the most beautiful oblong faces. Oblong faces are longer than they are wide with long straight cheek lines. Usually, there is a long and deep forehead with a strong, sharp and chiseled jaw line. Contour the bottom of the face across the chin to lengthen it less. Apply blush to the apple of cheeks as it will shorten and widen the face. Bangs help shorten the length of the face also.

Pear Face Shape

A United States Mary Kay National Sales Director that has a wonderful pear shaped face is Evalinda Diaz. Pear shaped faces have forehead and cheekbones that are narrow with a wide jawline. Contour the jawline and blush the cheeks to minimize the width. This will make the face look more oval. Highlight the center forehead, under the eyes, over the cheekbones, and the tip of the chin to create the illusion of more width. Highlighters draw attention to the middle of the face.

Heart Shaped Face

Dawn Dunn, United States National Sales Director of Mary Kay, has the most attractive heart shaped face. Heart shaped faces are wide at the forehead and cheekbones, that curves narrow at jawline like an inverted triangle. Contour the temples and the hollow of her cheeks to minimize the width for that oval face illusion. Highlight the chin, the middle forehead and under the eyes to create the illusion of more width.
