Face: Pear shaped face has a wide forehead and
a narrow chin line. For a pear-shaped face, the wide
jaw line is the major point of focus. Thin temples just
add to this effect. Through the use of contouring and
softening makeup, you can bring the look of this face
Concealer: Place some
cream concealer on a cosmetic sponge and apply it around
the eye, on the nose and in the centre of the forehead.
Stay away from any where in the jaw area.
Foundation: You will
need two shades of foundation, one dark and one light.
Using a cosmetic sponge, dot the darker foundation along
your full jaw line (including the chin) and in the upper
portion of the forehead. Blend. Take the lighter foundation
and apply it to the same areas that you covered with
concealer - under the eye out to the cheekbones, over
the nose, across the temples.
Final Touch: Using a
makeup brush, apply contour powder below the cheekbones
down to the jaw and across the chin. This will help
to further minimize the full jaw line. Applying blush
can be a bit tricky on this shape of face. Apply blush
to the cheekbones. By dividing the face in half in this
manner, the emphasis remains on the cheekbones.
