Choosing the right hairstyle and accessories can make your face look slimmer. You can also use make-up to create the optical illusion of a slender face. In this article, here are some tips and tricks to make your face look slimmer and younger than it really is.
#1. Using make-up techniques to outline
Choose a foundation that matches your skin tone and apply with a brush or sponge. In particular, apply it well to the edges of the face, hairline, and chin. It stands out when you insert a bronzer . The foundation allows the bronzer and highlighter to adhere better to the face.
If you plan to use a concealer to cover the wound, do this at this stage . If you’re using a bronzer and highlighter, it ‘s too late to apply the concealer .
For best results, use a liquid foundation or cream foundation.
Use a large, soft brush to comb the highlights of your cheekbones . Use a small brush to blend towards your eyes. You can see the shape as an inverted triangle. This makes the cheekbones look sharper.
Select a highlight that is two levels brighter than your skin color . You can also use brightly colored eyeshadows such as cream, white and ivory. Glittering a little helps to catch the light.
Apply a highlighter to the bridge of the nose . Use a small, thin brush to draw a long, thin line along the bridge of the nose. Do not make the lines too thick as the nose will look wider.
Use the brush to highlight the area between the eyebrows with an inverted triangle. Blend in the direction of the hairline.
It passes through the shadow just below the chin . Use a large, soft brush. This draws attention to the lips and makes the face look longer. If your chin is already sharp, you can skip this step or draw a thin line that is narrower than your finger.
Swipe the bronzer just below the cheekbones . This is important for creating a thin facial impression. If you are concerned about the unevenness of the bronzer on your left and right cheeks , use the indentation as a guide.
Choose a bronzer that is one or two colors darker than your skin color . Do not use a glossy bronzer . If you don’t have a bronzer, you can use light brown eyeshadow instead. Use warm brown for warm tones and cool brown for cool tones.
Draw a line near your nose with a bronzer . Sweep the bronzer to the side of your nose using a small, soft brush. Blend towards the sides of the face. This will make your nose sharper.
Press the bronzers on both sides of the forehead to fit the temple snugly. Blend with a small, soft brush. You can see that there are some gaps in the temple.
Polish the bronzer up and down your chin. Focus on the center of the chin, not the chin. Blend the bronzer towards the chin and neckto create a box-shaped chin line
Mix everything with a soft brush. However, if you use cosmetics based on body cream and highlighter , use a sponge. Apply a brush to the edge of the bronzer to highlight and blend the foundation. Make sure the blend is smooth so that there are no streaks left to indicate that you are using contouring techniques.
#2. Use of makeup and accessories
Keep an eye on your eyeliner and mascara . If you want to make your eyes stand out, pay attention to your eyes rather than the width of your face. If you use eyeliner, try winged tips or cateye styles . Focus the makeup on the outer corners of the eyes. This way your eyes will look bigger and your face will be slimmer.
Consider picking or shaving your eyebrows to create a natural curve. This makes your face more square.
Apply the technique of contouring your lips with eyeshadow and bronzer to make your lips look richer.This will draw attention from the cheeks to the lips. To outline the lips, apply a powder highlighter along the upper lip and a bronzer just below the lower lip. Mix and apply brightly colored lipstick.
Wear a high-brimmed hat or a small-brimmed hat. These hats make your head look bigger than a wide hat and give the impression of a slim face. Even a normal tall top hat can make your face look bigger.
Try wearing earrings. However, avoid large studs and earrings. When buying earrings, choose one that goes beyond your chin. This draws attention from the side of the face. The sharp shape of the earrings contrasts with the shape of the face, making it look slim.
If you pull your hair all the way through, you can wear long earrings to outline your face.
Choose a long necklace and do not wear a short necklace. Long necklaces draw attention to the floor and keep them away. A long necklace gives the illusion of a long neck and face. A very short necklace pulls your eyes upwards and draws attention to the width of your face.
If you are wearing a short necklace or pendant, don’t forget to put down your hair or cover your cheeks with long bangs to shape your face.
Choose wide-framed glasses and sunglasses. Look for rectangular glasses, but the right angles are rounded. If you wear glasses that are wider than your face, your face will look smaller.
Choose a loose V-neck or crew-neck T-shirt and avoid high collars. Shirts with long necklines look longer on the neck (and face). Turtleneck shirts, on the other hand, make the neck look shorter and draw attention upwards towards the chin line and face width.
#3. Choose the right hairstyle
Consider adding a layer to your hair . Flowing hair wraps around your face, shaping it and making it look slimmer.
Choose long hair over short hair. Long hair not only makes your face look longer, but also increases the natural movement of your hair.
If you choose short hair, choose an asymmetrical cut. If you choose short hair like Bob, avoid flat cuts. Instead, consider a haircut with a short back and a long front. The hair is still short, but the long bangs make the face look smaller.
Avoid very frizzy hair. Curls can make your face look smaller, but large, fine hair can make your head (and face) look wider than it really is.
Avoid flat bangs and choose side bangs. The flat forehead bangs make the face look short and round. Instead, consider laterally stretched bangs. Side bangs make your face stand out and make you look slim.
Consider a flat haircut (for men with very short hair). Ask the hairdresser to cut the hair on the sides very short and keep the top long. This will make it look longer than the width of your face.
#4. New style bald head
Separate the hair on one side. Side parting reduces the roundness and symmetry of the face.
If your hair is very thin, gently stroke the roots to make it look thicker. This way your hair looks longer than it is loose.
Carefully style the ponytail. Do not pull back all your hair with a smooth, flat top. This does not make your face plump and thin. Instead, it’s best to drop a few hairs near your face. Hair covers the face, cheeks and chin, making the face look slim.
You can wrap your hair in ballerina bread. This will make your face look longer.
You can also try the ponytail. This means that only the hair above the eyes is tied with a ponytail and the rest are loose.
Stretch your face with a low ponytail or blade. This gives the impression of a longer and thinner face.
Consider adding highlights to your hair . The highlights move away from the width of the face while adding texture and movement to the hair.
You can also dye your hair in ombre style . Light colors attract more attention than dark colors, so if the tips of the hair are brighter than the roots, the line of sight will be downwards and the face will appear long and pointed.
For men, grow a beard. The beard can make the face look slim due to the contrast. “Goat ” or a triangular beard can also give the impression of a long face.
#5. Another way to slim your face
Do face exercises. In fact, there is no scientific evidence that facial exercises make your face slimmer, but it still helps to tighten your face. There are several actions you can try.
Suck your cheeks and lips to make a fish face. Press and hold for a few seconds.
Tilt your head so that your chin is facing your palate. Lower and lift the lower jaw. Straighten your neck and hold this position for a few seconds.
Look to the left for a few seconds, then to the right.
Close your eyes, frown for a few seconds, then open as wide as possible.
Consider improving your diet. If your face is rounded due to weight gain rather than bone structure, reduce greasy and sweet foods such as fried foods, sodas, and candies. Instead, try eating more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean meats.
Avoid alcohol. Alcohol can make your face look puffy the next day.
Consider losing weight in general. If you are gaining weight and your face is rounded, you can exercise to make your face thinner. Try swimming, jogging, running and walking several times a day. Exercise for 30 minutes a day has a great effect on your body.
Consider plastic surgery and face lifts wisely . Face lift and plastic surgery , the most expensive and permanent facial slimming techniques, are risk-free and can actually cause scarring and swelling. Even untrained professionals can achieve lower than expected results. If you are considering this option, consult your plastic surgeon to check your medical history and make sure this option is safe.
