Flattering Makeup for a Heart Shaped Face

Do you have a heart shaped face? In case you don’t know what it means, the forehead is quite wide, the cheekbones are high prominent, while the chin is much narrower. It literally resembles a heart. Surely, such a description seems to be too asymmetrical, but asymmetrical does not mean less beautiful. There are many well-known women with this face shape who are worshipped for their beauty worldwide. They are Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Love-Hewitt, Scarlet Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, and gorgeous Naomi Campbell.

Considering that heart face shapes already have all the angles that are so desired by women with round or long faces, your task does not involve accentuating your high cheekbones and the chiseled jaw. But it doesn’t mean that you can skip contouring as it will help you create the visible symmetry you have been craving for!

How to do that? Determine your natural complexion and pick either foundation or powder that is one to two shades darker, comparing to it. Apply it strictly to the temples and the top area of your forehead. This trick will create the visual proportion. And when it comes to contouring, always blend well!

We use contouring for the creation of shades. But what about highlighting? We use this technique to accentuate the most winning features, which would be eyes and cheekbones for your face shape.

To draw attention away from your forehead, add some lighter foundation or concealer to your cheekbones and also under your eyes.

Also, apply some concealer to your jawline sides and chin. Thus, you will make your chin appear broader and thus create the illusion of proportion.

Tell us, who wouldn’t envy your exceptional high cheekbones peculiar to a heart shaped face? All is left is to apply some blush under the cheek apple along the cheekbone bottom and then blend out towards your hairline. Your cheek angles require little softening, and delicate and muted pinks will do the job. However, make sure you don’t slope any blush downwards. This can make the chin appear even longer, and we don’t want that.

Your task is to accentuate your eyes, and this can be done with dark eyeliner. Just blend everything well to achieve a softer look as angular or harsh lines are unlikely to flatter the chiseled cheekbones and chin!

However, you should keep in mind one thing. Super heavy eye makeup makes eyes appear smaller, disregarding a woman’s face shape. So, don’t overdo the eye makeup. Instead, make the eyes pop with subtler shades of eyeshadow, for example, beiges or pinks.

For a more complimenting effect, go for fluttery lashes. They can also soften the angular lines of your face shape. Opt for feathery false lashes or just apply two coats of mascara.

If you have a heart shaped face eyebrows makeup matters, as well. The correct shaping and grooming will help you improve the symmetry of your face dramatically. And remember that your eyebrows can either break or make your look!

Your face shape is heavy at the top. So, well groomed brows will make sure the eyes are not visually drawn towards the forehead. Thus, you should opt for a bit rounded arch. This eyebrow shape is ideal for your face as it will emphasize it subtly and soften your pointed chin at the same time. What can be better?

Finally, we will give you a chance to think how lucky you are to have this face shape. You have an excuse of wearing vivid lipstick at any occasion as it does flatter your face shape and enhance your features. True, your chin will appear wider if you put on lipstick in a bold shade.

Have much fun wearing fire red or fuchsia pink! Just don’t go for vivid eye makeup when you do as that would be too diva-like.

Another advice is to add some lip liner to the lip bottom. This will grant more width to your narrow chin. Don’t forget to blend it well in order to soften all those sharp lines!
