From the moment we are born, we are unique. All of our face shapes are different (unless you are a pair of identical twins), which means different things suit us differently to others.
One of the key factors in choosing what hair style will suit you and how to apply makeup is our face shape. Our face shape has a lot of control over what looks good and what will make us look the opposite, so this piece is going to talk about how you can accentuate your face shape so you can look your best!
What Is Your Face Shape?
If you want to accentuate your face shape, the first thing you need to do is learn what your face shape is. If you are not sure, or want to double check, you can do so here at Her Online World.
Once you know what shape you are working with, you can move on to the different processes that will help make the most of it and look your best.
Choose Your Contour and Highlight Placement Carefully
The idea of contour and highlight is to create a harmonious balance to your face. It is said that the oval shaped face is the most balanced shape, so makeup can just be applied standardly. However, for other shaped faces, you will want to look at creating more depth, length, and width where it is lacking for a balanced look.
An example of this would be to use products such as highlight to emphasis cheekbone structure on long faces, to detract away from its length.
For those with a round shaped face, it might be that you want to add some edges, so using contour under the jawline, down the sides of the nose, and around the forehead can help give you a little more definition.
Get The Right Hair Cut
The right haircut can work wonders for us and our face shape, just like the wrong one could make us look older or more ridged that we might prefer. Once you know what your face shape is, you can take a look at the different hair styles that help balance out your features and help you look your best.
Understand The Best Neckline Shapes
You might not have considered that your clothing can have an impact on how you look in terms of your face shape, but it definitely can! This is because the tops of dresses and t-shirts all come with different necklines, which work to either complement our hair style and face shape, or work against it.
Accentuating our face shape with different clothes and necklines works in the same way as it does with hair and makeup. Different necklines will offer different looks.
For example, square necklines or high collars look great with a heart-shaped face, whereas those with a round shaped face look best with low plunging necklines and scoop necks.
Remember, whatever your face shape, you can wear whatever you like and have your hair and makeup however you like. As long as you are happy – it is perfect.
