Face: A large, curved forehead with a rounded
chin. The face looks full and has very few angles. Cheekbones
are clearly wider than brow bone and jaw line. Widest
point is at the cheeks and ears.
A round face lacks dominant facial features and the
principal object is to counter the roundness of the
face and give it a long and elongated shape. To make
the face appear longer, use makeup to create lightness
from the lower lip to the chin and from the brows to
by applying concealer to make the skin tone look equal.
Apply concealer in such a way that the cheekbones are
highlighter while the jaw line is lightened. Using a
sponge, dab the cream under the eyes. Blend it in up
on the sides of the nose and out to the upper cheeks.
Highlight the centre portions of your face by applying
concealer on the forehead and chin.
Foundation: For redefining a round face you need
foundation of two different shades, one light and one
dark, which should be just one shade deeper than your
skin tone. Place the darker foundation, in the fullness
at your temples, as well as in the fullness of your
jaw line. Keep the chin clear - this helps to make the
face look longer. Smooth the liquid into the skin using
a sponge. If you find that you have fullness under your
chin and your neck, apply the darker foundation down
in that area. Blend the lighter foundation into the
same central areas that you placed the concealer - under
the eyes, on the nose, chin and forehead. Use a translucent
powder to lightly cover the area.
Final Touch: After the
face shape has been corrected with foundation, apply
a contour powder and blush. Place the contour powder
on the fullness of the temples with a makeup brush.
Continue to blend the powder down along the fullness
of the jaw, keeping the chin clear. Finally, apply blush
directly onto the cheekbones.
