Having a heart shaped face myself, I have learned couple tricks to help certain features stand out. Celebrities go all the way on contouring, they’re faces always looks well proportioned no matter the face shape! You can do it too! I will walk you through the steps on how to achieve this look.

Tools:

NYX Matte Bronzer, its affordable, great quality and comes in 5 different shades.

L’OREAL Magic Lumi Touch for highlighting.

Avon Mineral Blush for a soft rosy cheek.

Angled brush for easy contouring.

or

Revlon PhotoReady Sculpting Blush Palette, contains everything! Blush, highlighter and a contouring shade.

Bronzer:

Here are the places to apply…

Using your angled brush, apply bronzer right under your cheekbones and on your temples. Tip: In order to figure out where to contour, just start where the central part of your ear is and blend downwards at an angle from that point. This will really emphasize your cheekbones.

Apply on the sides of your nose from the bridge straight down. This will make your nose appear thinner. Make sure to blend well.

Apply on jaw line and chin, which will make your face more elongated, for those who don’t have the ideal oval face shape.

Highlighting:

Apply to these places…

Top and bottom of your lips to make their shape more prominent.

Apply to browbones, forehead, above cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose.

The key is to blend really well to prevent demarcation lines.
