Small secrets of great masters always include a few steps, tips and tricks that work together to create a whole. Despite all the contouring tutorials and the emphasis on prominent facial lines, we still have only one face that can look fab just on its own. Face shapes can generally be divided into 6 categories. Thus we can define oval, round, oblong, heart shaped, square and diamond shaped face.
Ladies with oval faces will have a forehead that is only slightly wider than their curved jaw line. The face is like the oblong face, but with a soft chin and contours on the sides of the face.
The round face is just a square face with soft angles - sides are slightly protruding outwards. The jaw line is rounded, and your cheekbones are the widest part of the face.
If you have a square face, the sides are flat, and the jawbone is slightly curved. Your face is almost as wide all the way. In other words, if you measured the face from one edge to the opposite, you would find that it would be approximately the same as the distance from the left jaw to the right jaw.
If your chin is prominent and the forehead is the widest part of your face, you have a heart-shaped face. Some people may have a widow's peak, but you can still have a heart-shaped face even if the face is somewhat triangular.
The rectangular faces are sometimes referred to as "oblong", somewhat like the face of a square shape, but the face is longer than wider. The forehead, cheeks and jaw have approximately the same width and chin has very little curvature.
If you pull down lines connecting the center of your hair, with the tip of your cheeks up to the chin of the chin, it would create a diamond shape. Women with diamond faces have a pointed chin and high cheekbones. The main difference between the diamond-shaped face and the heart-shaped heart is the hairline - if you have a diamond face, the line of hair will be narrower.
