6 Makeup Tricks to Slim Your Face

Posted on July 14th, 2020 12:28 AM


If you’re after razor sharp cheek bones, but haven’t been gifted the features naturally, don’t fret! There are a few simple techniques you can borrow from the world of contouring to subtly define and enhance your features in seconds – we show you how. 



WHAT YOU’LL NEED: 

A matte bronzer or foundation 
highlighting product
Appropriate brushes (good blending is essential!)
An eyebrow kit and a volumising mascara 

 

1. DEFINED CHEEKBONES
Choose a matte bronzer or foundation that is two shades darker than your natural skin colour. Pucker your lips, and use a makeup brush to draw a diagonal line from the hollow of your cheek to your ear. Once you’ve blended the colour, follow by sweeping a highlighter across the apples of your cheeks.

2. CHISELED JAWLINE
Use a fluffy brush to sweep a bronzer along your jawline; this will add definition. Then take a darker shade and apply it underneath your chin, blending the bronzer down your neck to create depth. 

3. SLIM YOUR NOSE
Create the illusion of a slimmer nose by sweeping a darker powder or foundation down either side of the bridge of your nose. Then take a highlighter and swoosh it down the centre of your nose. Blend the shades together with a makeup brush and you’ve got a slimmer nose in seconds!

4. STROBE
The strobing technique uses highlighter products to draw attention to the centre of your face, slimming it down. To do it, you’ll need to dab a highlighter along the bridge of your nose, across your eyebrow bones, at the centre of your chin and above your Cupid’s bow.

5. PRONOUNCED EYEBROWS
Full brows will balance a rounder face shape. If you have skinny eyebrows, fill them in with a brow powder and create a pronounced arch to lift your face and to draw attention to your eyes.

6. WIDE EYES, TRIM FACE
Dark lipstick can make your lips look thinner and plump your face, so focus on your eye makeup instead. Eyeliner and volumising mascara (like this one by The One) is a great way to make your eyes pop
