Does your face have a round shape? This face type has gentle lines and it develops widthwise. Forehead, cheekbones and chin are not very prominent.
How do you correct and emphasize a round face?
For this face type, the role of contouring and strobing is to give it a greater verticality and to sculpt face features.
STEP 1. With a 3-shaped motion, use shade number 4 starting from the hairline on the higher part of the forehead and going down to reach the cheekbones; then blend from the jaw line down to the chin. If necessary, outline the sides of nose, blending upwards to the eyebrows to make it look thinner.
STEP 2. Blend nuance number 3 around contouring made with nuance number 4 to soften the shading and make it look warmer.
STEP 3. Make the central areas of the face look lighter with shade number 2.
STEP 4. After contouring, apply shade number 1 of the highlighter on the high points of the face – cheeks, bridge of nose, areas above and under the eyebrow arch, Cupid’s bow, chin.
Remember to always use the Slanted Blusher Brush of the Professional Brushes line of products on forehead, cheekbones, cheeks and chin. Use the Blending Brush of the Professional Brushes line of products on bridge and sides of nose, on the areas above and under the eyebrow arch and along Cupid’s bow.
