Beauty products exist to help correct nature’s imperfections. They enhance our God-given features when used correctly. To make the most of your make-up/beauty products, you need to know your face shape, its proportions and features. To determine your face shape and proportions, sweep your hair back from your face and look straight into the mirror. You can take a lip or eye pencil and draw around your reflection on a mirror to help determine your face shape.
An Oblong/Rectangular Face
The oblong/rectangular face has the cheekbones, forehead and jaw in line with each other. This face appears longer than wider. To enhance the oblong face, beauty products should be used to make the face appear shorter and wider. To achieve this, shade slightly under the tip of the chin and across the top of the forehead with a slightly darker foundation or bronzer and add iridescent highlighter to the cheekbones, this will make the face appear shorter and wider.
For hairstyles, fringes will shorten the rectangular face, go for hairstyles with a lot of volume to balance the face. Avoid long straight hair and center parting as this elongates the look of the face.
For glasses, opt for oval, rimless or semi-rimless frames, these frames will add width to the oblong/rectangular face.
