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.

A Round Face

On a round face, the width of the forehead, cheekbones and jaw are equal. Round faces usually have soft features and a slightly rounded jaw. To enhance the round face, beauty products should be used to shade the fullest part of the jaw line. To achieve this, highlight the center of the chin and forehead with an iridescent highlighter, keep the eyebrows straight rather than arched and apply eye shadows in straight lines, rather than rounded lines.

For hairstyles, go for soft layered styles like a straight fringe or a straight bob. It is best to avoid full and rounded curly hairstyles. For glasses, opt for square or rectangular shapes. Try to avoid full rounded shapes.

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.
