6 Makeup Tricks to Make Your Face Look Thinner
A natural urge for many women with rotund faces is to make their faces appear thinner. Thanks to makeup, nothing is impossible. Here are a few tips and tricks you should use to make your face appear thinner than what it really is.
1. Highlight your eyes
Your eyes can become your most critical assets when it comes to making your face look thinner. Use generous amounts of mascara on your lashes to draw attention towards them. Define the shape of your eyes by using an eye liner along with eye makeup according to the time of the day and occasion. Lengthening your lash line with an eye pencil to give yourself cat eyes can also be used as a technique to make your face look slimmer. Placing a focus on your large eyes will create a visual illusion that your face is thinner than usual.
2. Contour your cheekbones
Contouring is a makeup technique which you can use on your cheekbones to make them look angular. Use a blush or a face powder which is one shade darker than your skin tone. Swipe your brush diagonally from your cheeks to your ear in an upward motion. This will make your cheekbones appear much higher than they are and it will give your round face a basic structure. Your face will appear slimmer as your contouring makeup will create an illusion that you are sucking your cheeks in.
3. Avoid a double chin
Sporting a double chin is a killer for women who have round faces and baby fat around the areas of their necks. Negate your double chin by using a bronzer to define your jaw line and make it appear more prominent. Blend the bronzer with the makeup that you have used on your neck so that your jaw line doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb. Once you lift your jaw line, you will notice that half the weight on the bottom of your face has disappeared.
