Being blessed with a round face makes you so lucky! You naturally have fuller cheeks, something many celebrities get fillers for. Plus, you’ll keep a youthful look for way longer. Women with round faces tend to look youthful, sweet, and cute.
But maybe you don’t want to look cute all the time. OR maybe you want to enhance your natural sweetness! Either way, read on to learn the top tips for doing the best round face makeup to suit you.
A round face is generally characterized by an asymmetrical face and slightly fuller cheekbones. The jawline is mostly round, and the face is nearly as wide as its length.
This face shape is actually the most common one. Many of your favorite celebrities are rockin this round face shape.
There are many types of round faces. Some have an overall round shape; others have full cheeks but a more defined jaw.
Generally, round faces have a youthful look, wider cheeks, and a curved jaw.
Contour Tips and Tricks
Contour works really well for round face shapes. It defines and adds structure to your facial features. A popular trick used by Kim Kardashian herself is the “3” contour.
Find a contour shade that suits your skin tone. Opt for a greyer or cool-toned one rather than an orange-toned. This will give you the illusion of having shadows on your face. Finding the right shade is important!
Use a contour stick or a cream contour. Now, let’s follow the illustration above and draw a number 3 on the sides of your face. Start from your forehead to your temples. Find your cheekbones and draw along there. Next is to swipe it down your jawline.
Blend, blend, blend. We don’t want any harsh lines showing a number 3 on your face sis. Use a damp beauty blender or a contour brush. This brush has an angled cut so it’s easy to get a beautiful contour.
We’re not done yet! This is only the first step to achieving that defined look.
Eyebrows can make or break your look as they frame your round face.
Those with round faces typically want to achieve a less circular face illusion. Try a brow shape with an angular or sharp arch at the end. Don’t be afraid to go a little bold with your brows if you have a round face!
Not all people are fans of putting blush on their face. 2022 made us think otherwise! Blush makes you look more alive, adding a flush of color to your face. Putting on blush also enhances the definition of your contour.
Start from the apples of your cheek and swipe using a backwards motion. Moving towards your ear. For round faces, keep a snatched, angled look with your blush.
