Face shapes 2

Face shapes /Part 2

Square face shape
How to recognize square face shape?
Length and width of this face appear to be the same.Square face and its jaw line through the chin, is almost square.Another characteristic feature is same width of  forehead, cheekbones and jaw line.
Forehead is narrow from the hairline to the eyebrow.

Medium hairstyle is recommended.If you decide to go for short hair, don't forget to add some height to the crown.Soften sharp edges of the face by wispy bangs, flowing layers or angles cuts starting at the cheekbones.
 Contouring: Adding darker make up to both sides of the forehead will help to get length to the face. Apply  darker make up to the jaw line to soften sharp edges of the face.

Blushing : Apply blush to the ball of the cheeks and fades towards the ear, to create illusion of rounded appearance.

Examples of square face shape:
Rectangular face shape

This shape can be easily mistaken with square face shape as the jaw line is also square and forehead, cheekbones and jaw, are similar in width.
Typical feature to recognize the difference is long face with the square hairline and high forehead.

Hairstyle that adds some width and volume to the face is highly recommended.Bangs goes great with the high forehead and creates softness with short to medium hairstyle by rectangular shape.

If you decide to go for medium to long hairstyle, add some layers that will soften sharp features and creates illusion of wider cheekbones.

Contouring: We needs to create illusion of shorter face and add width to the cheekbones.
Apply darker make up at the hairline and under the chin.
Apply shading to the hollow of the cheeks from the ear downward towards  the corner of the mouth.

Blushing: Apply blushing  to the cheekbones, directly under the outer corner of the eye.
Highlighter is added high onto the cheeks.
Never apply blush lower that the tip of the nose!

Examples of rectangular face shape:

Triangular face shape:

Widest part of the triangular face shape is jaw line which is most prominent feature of this face shape. Cheekbones are narrower than jaw line an wider than the forehead.
Width of the face is face is 1/3 less than the length.

Medium hairstyle that falls just bellow the jaw line, is best  length for this face shape.Main intention is to bring width and volume to the top part of the face to widen forehead and soften the jaw line. Layers on the top of the face or bangs that brings some width would be great.

Contouring: Apply darker makeup to the chin and jaw line to make it narrower.Lighter make up should be applied to the hairline .
Blushing: Apply blush in a V shape from the brow to the temples, down to the cheekbones.

Examples of triangular face shape:

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless
    I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you are interested feel free to send
    me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Terrific blog by the way!
