How to make your face look thinner using makeup

“Contouring is creating an optical illusion with shadows. Depending on the shape of your face, you can do things to minimize features and create angles,” says celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes (the guru behind Jennifer Lopez’s iconic glow). “If you have a long face, you can shorten the chin. If your face is round, you can emphasize cheekbones. And if you have a wide nose, you can slim it down.

1.WEAR A LIGHTER SHADE OF LIPSTICK
To make your face look thinner using make-up, it is a good idea to wear the lightest possible shade of lipstick. That would include the neutrals and pinks, not the reds. Picking a shade of lipstick that doesn’t stand out as much and is closer to your skin color will make it seem like you are blending your lips into your face. That means your lips appear extended and lengthened to make you look thinner. The lighter the shade of lipstick, the better.

2.SLIM YOUR CHEEKS

If you are looking to slim your cheeks down with make-up, here’s how you do it. Start by selecting a good-quality bronzer to apply to your face. The key here is to apply it to emphasize your cheekbones. You do that by putting it on your cheekbone and extending down to your chin. It is a good idea to use a touch darker shade than your own skin color to make a shadow. This shadow will make your face look thin and more angular, as it creates a heart-shaped face out of a rounded one.


3.GO EASY ON THE BLUSH

Depending on how much blush you apply to your face, it can actually make your face look rounder. If you have round cheeks, applying blush to them will just emphasize them further. That’s why it’s a good idea to go easy on the blush if you have a rounder face. Stick to neutrals if you must apply something. Also, make sure you blend the blush lightly into your face with a brush so that it appears to be lengthening your skin if you do use a neutral color.

4.TURN UP THE EYE SHADOW

If you really want to make your face look thinner using make-up, apply more eye shadow. Emphasizing your eyes will take away from the rounder parts of your face. That means putting on bold eye shadow, eyeliner, and mascara will help your face look thinner. However, you don’t want to go too overboard so that you look messy – you want just enough to attract attention to your eyes. Matching the color of eye shadow with the color of your eyes can also help create a sense of unity and therefore will lengthen your face as they will appear to be a whole.

5.USE A BRONZER FOR YOUR JAWLINE

If you have issues with a double chin, this little trick can help. By applying a bronzer several shades darker than your skin color, you can reduce the appearance of a double chin. Apply it right under your jawline and under your chin. This will create a shadow under your chin that will hide the appearance of a double chin. Don’t get too dark of a bronzer though, as that can make it look too noticeable, which is not the goal here.

6.EYEBROWS

Don't Forget to fill your brows.
