How to correct your face shape with makeup

How to correct your face shape with makeup There are four basic face shapes – long, square, heart and of course oval, which is considered as the ideal shape. Whatever is your shape, skillful shading and highlighting can help to enhance your good points and minimize the less desirable ones, achieving the ideal oval face. The foundation must always be lighter shade than your overall base. Highlights make features more prominent and shades (darker tones) make features recede into the background. You should highlight your good points and shadow the points you want to make more invisible.

A few tips before you start – keep your hair off your face by tying it back or using a hair band or scarf. Examine your face from the front and in profile to understand how it is structured. Decide which features you want to shadow and highlight and then choose a foundation color that blends perfectly with your skin tone when applied along the jawline.

Apply a slightly darker shade of foundation to the areas where you want to emphasize the shadows such as a heavy jawline. Use a slightly lighter shade on the areas that you want to highlight, such as cheekbones. Apply the base foundation to the whole face and neck, blending into the border lines of the light and dark shades. Check that the makeup looks natural and go back over the light and shadow areas if necessary.
