Are you dreaming of a slimmer face with a sleeker jawline? Well, why not fake more chiselled features by simply mastering some simple beauty tricks?! These tricks can transform your face in minutes and make you look so stunning in every selfie! Here are 10 best beauty tricks for a slimmer face! Brace yourself, beautiful, a bunch of compliments are coming your way!
1. Get The Perfect Haircut For You!
No matter how beautiful curls and waves look, they do make your facial features appear bigger. If you have curly hair, don’t stick to tight curls, try loosening them up for a slimming effect. Remember ladies, hair that’s straighter and cut in layers will always make your cheekbones look slimmer. If you do want to chop your locks, make sure not to go too short, especially if you have a round face. The reason being is, a hair length that reaches your jawline can make it look wider and bulkier. You don’t want that now, do you?
2. Play With Light Lipstick Shades
If you want to soften your face and give it a slimmer appearance, you might want to put your favourite red and dark lipstick shades back in the drawer. Softer shades like pinks and nudes take the focus away from a wider jawline and give your face a slimmer and more balanced look. Not a fan of lipsticks? Transparent lip glosses work like a charm too!
3. Bright Eyeshadows For The Win
Let your eyes do the talking by opting for an intense eyeshadow shade. Go with soft/neutral shades on your lips, and bold on your eyes. Merge jet black eyeliner with a deep eyeshadow shade so that your eyes pop. Remember ladies, the key here is to shift the focus from your face to your eyes.
4. The Shape Of Your Brows
Who knew your brows could make such a difference to how slim or wide your face looks? While sleek and thin eyebrows can make your face look wide, thick and angular brows on the other hand give you a slimmer appearance. The next time you meet your parlour lady, be sure to tell her this!
5. Get Contouring
With a lot of practice and patience, you can master the art of contouring! You can transform your face in minutes by using a bronzer, a contouring stick and highlighting pen to define your jawline, cheekbones and nose. Whether you’re a pro or a newbie, we bet these tips will help you win the contouring game.
6. It’s All In The Hair Parting
If you part your hair in the middle, your face is more likely to look round and wide. Short bangs or short layers that frame the face are a big no-no if you want to slim down a wide face. A killer side parting will accentuate your features and give the illusion of a thinner and slimmer face. Pick a side that you’re more comfortable with and style your hair to create the perfect illusion of a slimmer face.
7. Turn The Volume Up!
Limp or flat locks can accentuate the roundness of your face, so poker straight and flat hair isn’t the best idea. Pick up sections of your hair at the crown and tease them to give a bit of bounce and add that touch of volume. You can also flip your head upside down while blow drying your hair to give your roots a nice lift. Not only will this help make your face look less round, but will also help your mane look bouncy and lush!
8. Darker Hair Colours Are A Good Idea
Light colours like blonde, bronze, red, pink and blue not only stand out, but can also make your face look wider or rounder. Play it safe and opt for darker colours like black, burgundy and chocolate brown. You can also use temporary colour or add streaks around your face that are a shade darker to give you a slimmer look.
9. Prevent Bloating With A Diet Plan
Dear girls, puffiness and a bloated face can make your face look rounder and your skin look stretched. If you want your face to look slimmer, stay away from aerated drinks, junk food and alcohol. These can be toxic for health and will lead to bloating. Try to avoid eating food 3 hours before your bedtime and don’t drink too many fluids before going to sleep. You can also massage your face to improve blood circulation or try these facial exercises for a slimmer looking face.
10. Blush Away
Did you know that you can can also use blush to make your face look thinner? Most definitely! Simply swipe some rosy pink or peachy blush along the apples of your cheeks.Once that’s done, gently work the product in an upward direction towards your hairline for a slightly lifting and sleeker effect. Another reason to give blush a shot is because it also makes your skin glow and shine at the same time.Images: Shutterstock
