Face: Rectangular shape is long and narrow with
hollow cheeks. There is very little difference in width
between the top, middle or bottom of your face but it
is more rounded than the square face. Your goal should
be to add width and fullness to the sides of the face
and around the eyes, cheekbones and ears. The basic
purpose of make-up skills for a rectangular face is
to minimize the look of fullness in the forehead, jaw
Concealer: Using a cosmetic
sponge, apply a cream concealer under the eyes, blending
it all the way out to the cheekbones. You can also place
a bit of concealer in the middle of your forehead, across
your nose and above your lip.
Foundation: Dab the foundation on the skin with
a sponge, covering the temples, the jaw line and the
chin. Blend the foundation into the sides of the forehead
and the frontal bone of the eye.
Final Touch: Apply powder
below the cheekbone, including the jawbone and the chin.
This helps to soften the look of fullness in the face.
You may also bring the powder right under the neck.
Apply blush from the back of the cheekbone forward.
Stop at the outer corner of the eye. Get a lighter colour
blush and loosely brush the makeup a little closer into
the apple of the cheeks.
