How to Make Your Face Look Slimmer with Makeup

Amazing cheekbones and rather skinny face shapes are quite popular these days. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to make your face appear slimmer, with more emphasized angles and cheekbones, if you just master a few methods. Your hairstyle can also have a great impact on your face shape: check online or consult with your hairdresser on ideas how to cut your hair in order to make your face look slimmer. Also, there are a few quite simple makeup tricks to help you out in this department: check them out below:

  • Contouring: Kim Kardashian showed us the power of contouring lately and it has become an absolutely compulsory technique to master if you want to add some angles to your face. It is quite time-consuming, so you might want to leave the full procedure for nights out or special occasions, and not do it every single morning before going out. After you have applied your foundation and concealer, simply use a bronzer to make the sides of your face look more emphasized and use a lighter color to bring out the features that you want to capture more attention. Find what contouring patterns are best for your face shape. Remember that you need to have a good quality brush in order to achieve the best possible result.
  • Highlighter: Highlighting would take away attention away from the wide areas of your cheeks. Simply apply some highlighter down the center of your face, between your brows, over your nose and chin. You will then focus light on the middle of your face.
  • Slimming down your chin: Maybe your chin is not as slim as you want it to be? Well, you can use bronzer by applying it along your jaw line. Blend it well, since bronzer can show itself easily. The dark color over your jaw line will slim down your chin.
  • Put an accent on eye makeup: Drawing some attention to your eyes will create the illusion of slimmer cheeks. Play around with eyeshadows and add some highlighter or very light eyeshadow in the inner corner of your eyes and underneath the brow bone. Also, be aware of dark circles and cover them up with concealer!
  • Shimmering technique: Shimmery products reflect the light very well and they make your bone structure look slimmer and more emphasized. Whether you are using a powder or cream product, simply apply it along your collarbones and cheekbones. Easy, isn’t it
