Face Shape: Cheekbone is clearly wider than forehead
and jaw line. Your aim should be to reduce the width
around the cheekbone line.
In a diamond-shaped face more emphasis is to be given
to the chin, the cheeks and the forehead. Applying cosmetics
can help to bring the facial features forward.
Concealer: Apply concealer
to get rid of any discolorations, redness, brownness
etc. Apply concealer into the centre of the face to
create a look of lightness. Blend it in the centre of
the forehead, under the eyes and on the sides of the
Foundation: Use two
different colours of foundation i.e., one dark and one
light. Using a cosmetic sponge, apply the dark shade
to the areas that you want to minimize, such as the
temples and the jaw line. Keep the centre area where
you applied the concealer clear. Next, choose a lighter
shade of foundation, one that is very close to your
natural colour. Put it on the same areas that you used
the concealer - under the eyes, across the nose, forehead
and chin. Next, use a sponge to apply a translucent
powder, preferably one that doesn't have a colour.
Final Touch: After correcting
the face shape with foundations, brush contour powder
onto the jaw line to help provide some facial definition.
If you feel that your chin, temples or frontal bone
protrude, you can cover those areas with some contour
powder. To add colour to your face, apply some blush
with a makeup brush. Starting from the back of the bone,
blend the blush forward.
