What Does Your Face Shape Say About YOU!

mardi 20 octobre 2015
Much like achieving the perfect messy bun or mastering liquid eyeliner, figuring out your face shape is one of those things that sound a lot easier than they actually are. According to fashion consultants there are seven basic face shapes – diamond, heart, turned heart, oval, full, square, or rectangular. Each has its own characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages.

For your benefit, we will clarify the qualities of every kind of face, with the goal that you can without much of a stretch figure out which one belongs to you.

Diamond shaped

If someone drew lines connecting the center of your hairline to your cheekbones and down to your chin, it would create a diamond shape—hence, the name. Diamond-faced women have pointed chins and high cheekbones. The main difference between a diamond-shaped face and a heart-shaped face is the hairline—if you have a diamond-shaped face, your hairline will be narrower. If you wear glasses – choose frames with heavy colorful handles and wider than your upper part of the face. Almost all hairstyles are suitable to your face. Among the famous ladies with diamond shaped faces are Sophia Loren, Linda Evangelista, and Katherine Hepburn.

Heart shaped

If your chin is pointed and your forehead is the widest part of your face, you have a heart-shaped face. Some people may have a widow’s peak at their hairline, but you can still have a heart-shaped face without one—picture an upside-down triangle instead. Hairstyles that work are long, side-swept bangs that hit the corner of the eyes (like Reese Witherspoon’s) work wonders to balance out heart-shaped faces and take the focus off of pointy chins. Tapered bobs that are longer in the front than the back also add balance. You should avoid blunt cuts and heavy, choppy layers will add more angles to your already sharp-lined face.

 Turned heart shape

Here the chin area is wider than this at forehead. In this case you have to add volume to the upper part of the face. Short and voluminous haircuts are a flawless remuneration for the slender temple. Yet, be cautious with the tallness of your haircut. Maintain a strategic distance from hairdos that highlight on the button line. The performing artist Katie Ireland has this face shape.

Oval shaped

Ladies with oval faces will have forehead that is only a tiny bit wider than their curved chin—picture an egg placed upside down. Your face is similar to an oblong face, but with a softer chin and more curve to the sides of your face. Celebs with this face shape include Olivia Munn, Kerry Washington, and Blake Lively.

Round shaped

A round face is just a square-shaped face with softer angles—the sides of your face curve slightly outwards instead of being straight. Your chin is rounded and your cheekbones are the widest part of your face. Celebs with this face shape: Elizabeth Olsen, Jennifer Lawrence, and Ginnifer Goodwin.

Minimize fullness with face-framing layers or a middle/slightly off-center part like Fergie’s. And, as a general rule, it’s a good idea to keep hair longer than your chin to help lengthen the appearance of your face. Beware of chin-grazing bobs, they can make your face look rounder and keep away from blunt bangs that will create a half-moon look. Opt, instead, for a bob that’s longer in the front than the back.

Square shaped

If you have a square face, the sides of your face are straight and your jaw line is slightly angled with a very minimal curve. Your face is nearly as wide as it is long. Celebs with this face shape: Angelina Jolie, Katie Holmes, and Sandra Bullock.

Long layers and wispy bangs will soften your facial angles as will an off-center part like Sandra Bullock’s. Steer well clear of heavy, straight bangs (which Bullock tried — without success — at the recent Golden Globe Awards) and anything that has a lot of height at the crown, which will only emphasize the square angles of your face.
