Tip Tuesday - Face Shapes Part 4

Part 4 of the Face Shape series will be Oblong.  To read Part 3 or the other earlier parts, click here.

Oblong or long faces are very easy to pick out.  The characteristics of an oblong face are generally long and the face will be longer than it is wide.  The face will either have a long chin or a long forehead with the brow bone, cheekbone, and jawbone being the same width. 

The purpose in contouring this face shape is to bring the top and bottom features inward to shorten the length of the face.  In the diagram above, you will notice that they just have the chin contoured but I would also contour the top of the forehead around the hairline. You can also lightly apply bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks.  For highlighting, apply above the cheekbones and apply a blush along the cheekbones. 

Stay tuned for Part 5 on the next make-up Tip Tuesday for another face shape.  

* Just an FYI, the face drawing shown above was found on Pinterest (don't forget to follow us!). I do not know who the original creator was due to there being multiple links for the same drawing.
