Understanding your face shape is paramount when applying makeup.
Today we will delve into the oval face shape and explain where to concentrate your makeup.
The oval face is an elongated face shape. As a makeup artist or when doing your makeup personally, the aim should be to make the blunt features like the nose, eyebrow, lips/eyes cheek look sharp.
Cheeks: This is where your blush and highlighter come to play. Proper application of blush on the cheekbone help to suck your cheek in, thereby highlighting your contour. Doing this properly gives that sleek look you have been looking for and the sharpness in your oval face shape look.
Lips/eye. It’s always advisable you highlight either one of them. You can decide to highlight the eye and keep the lips simple to bring that sharpness in your oval sharp look. Also, for an oval face, try lining your lips before filling them in with matching lipstick for an extra look.
Eyebrow: An ideal eyebrows for an oval face are soft yet angled with a natural lift in an arch. It is advisable to go for eyebrows in their natural brow bone direction.
Nose: Most oval shape comes with a blunt nose which necessitates shadow effect by applying bronzer to sides after the foundation has been applied. This helps to highlights and highlight the top of the nose thereby making it sharper.
Understanding this technique helps bring out the “queen look” in you. Don’t forget to keep it simple.
