Make Up Tips for Round Face
Focus Light Colors on The Center of Your Face
The lighter areas on your face are more prominent, so you’ll want to bring out your nose, chin and center forehead. You’ll need two different colors of foundation to create the elongated illusion. One shade should be your exact match and the other should be just one shade darker. Dot the lighter foundation on the center of your forehead, down the center of your nose and on your chin. Blend well.
Dark Colors Recede
To create those high cheekbones, place darker colors on areas you want to recede into the background, such as your jawline. Using the foundation that’s one shade darker, dot it on your temples, beneath the fullest part of your cheeks and along the jawline. This way, these areas of your face are less prominent, making it appear longer. Make sure you blend your foundation, including blurring the lines between the two different colors of base.
Apply Face Powder All Over
After you apply foundation, use a fluffy makeup brush to apply face powder all over your face. Mineral powders have an iridescent quality that will place extra emphasis on the lighter parts of your face, bringing them out even more.
Focus on One Part
Now you can choose which part of your face you want the focus to be on. If you wear a light-colored lipstick and apply a coat or two of clear gloss on top, you continue to place emphasis down the center of your face. However, don’t feel you have to forgo red lipstick if that’s your favorite. Anytime you focus on your lips is great for the elongating illusion.
Use The Right Blush
Because blush should be placed on the apples of your cheeks, make sure you choose a light-colored blush. This brings your cheeks to the forefront and makes the area under your cheeks recede more, which is what you want if you’re trying to create a high-cheekboned appearance.
