    Corrective Make Up For Different Face Types

    Make up is a magic that covers up our imperfections with ease provided we have a complete know-how of one’s face type adds to perfecting the art of fine make up. Here’s an insight on corrective make up for different face structures.

    Square Face
    If you belong to this face type then you have a very strong face shape. You should apply make-up on your jaw gently as possible and use the technique of shading on the forehead and jaw line with one tone darker foundation, this would give the face a lot more slimming affect and would also tone down the wide corners of the face. You could apply a striking lip colour and use a dark blusher from cheeks to cheekbones. You can indulge in good amount of light coloured blush-on to highlight the parts or features you would like to look different. Try using both an eye liner and eye shadow to highlight the eyes. Round arch of the eyebrows provide a softer touch to the face. Long or round earrings add to the look of such a face type.

    Round Face

    If you belong to this category of face type, then you should use a foundation that is matching your skin tone, while the areas around the cheekbones should be covered with darker foundation. You can put blush on by highlighting your cheeks and jaw line. This way the face appears to be oval. You can apply soft pink blush-on at the cheek area, carefully avoiding the cheek pads else it can make your face look even more round. Make sure the eyes are not neglected, so brush a dark shade of eye shadow to get a sharp and natural look. A thick layer of eye liner looks very nice on round faces. Finally, do not forget to wear a light shade or natural tone of lipstick or lip gloss, which should be applied on the inside of the lip line. Pearl jewellery or diamonte shaped earrings would be good for this kind of a face.

    Oval Face
    You are lucky if you have this kind of balanced face type. For an oval face, any kind of hairstyle and subtle make can do wonders. Start with by applying a liquid foundation that matches the colour of skin around the face. To camouflage the strong jaw structure, you can put a dark blush-on from chin to ear. Basically, it should be applied in a C shape and blended to the outer corner of the eyes. For the eyes, try experimenting with a bold eye shadow colour and use false eyelashes to make the look more dramatic. Make sure your eyebrows are arched naturally. For the lips make sure you outline the lower lips. You can go in for any kind of jewellery preferably the long variety.

    Triangle Face

    If you have a triangle shape, then you are blessed with a small forehead. You should go in for light make up. To look wider, apply foundation according to your skin tone. Apply blush on to the cheeks, this will create a knob. Also always apply rouge on the upper cheek base. With the eyebrows, you should avoid forming a razor-sharp curve, because it will make your forehead shape appear smaller. For lips, one can use a lipstick colour in light tones or a natural shade, you may also use lip gloss in order to look shinier, which should be applied on the natural lip line. Go in for studs or hoop earrings.

    Oblong face
    This face type is blessed with a long face in the proportion to the width, alongside hollow cheeks. Apply pancake or foundation matching the skin tone. Put one shade lighter foundation on forehead and neckline to reduce the length of the face. Apply little blusher, maintaining the foundation balance but don’t over do. Eyebrows on the thicker side with a natural arch are essential to minimize the face length. Even the eye liner has to be a thin lining, so as to define just the eyelid. The eyeliner can be applied from the centre of the eyelid tilting it up to the outer corner of the eye. When it comes to the lips, make sure you border the lips with a lip liner and then put the lip stick with a brush to give it a full in appearance. Try going in for simple and flat neckpiece with studs or danglers.
