• Know Your Face Shape

    The visual effect of certain hairstyles, makeup, and glasses will change based on the proportions of your face, but it's difficult to deliberately plan this effect if you don't already know what shape your face is. To determine your face shape, examine an outline of your face or take precise measurements of your cheek width, jaw line, forehead, and face length to determine its proportions. Then, compare your findings with the basic face shape categories: oblong, heart, square, oval, round triangular, and diamond.

  • Stand in front of a mirror. You should be able to easily reach it from a standing position in front of it - you'll need to be able to draw on it without having to lean forward.

    • Stand looking directly forward into the mirror, with your back straight, your head high, and your shoulders back. If you have bangs, pull them out of the way.
    • Make sure the lighting is over head and not directional. Lighting will affect the shape you draw.

    Start from the bottom of your chin, proceed up the edge of your face on one side past your cheek bones, follow the curve of your hairline, go down the other side of your face, and end up back at your chin. Try to stay as still as possible while you do this. 

    • Don't include your ears - just the edges of your face.

  • Blush seems fairly straightforward: You swirl your brush into your rouge then dust it on your face. Blush may seem to be the makeup .. with the easiest & simplest application, but it's NOT. You need to know the way u apply it, depending on ur face shape; blush can be incredibly flattering to your bone structure if you use it more strategically.

    Once you know your perfect blush color and technique combo, you'll NEVER have to go back to that typical round pop of rouge again.
