Apply moisturizer

Let’s not forget about moisturizer! Your skin needs to be well hydrated at all times. Using a high-quality, organic moisturizer will make your face look narrower. Your skin tone will be more even and not blotchy and dry. When your skin appears nourished and firm , your face looks longer.

Narrow round face makeup: contour your chin

A simple fact about makeup is that darker colors can be used to create shadows and make your face and body appear slimmer. To make your jaw appear narrower through contouring, use a contouring powder or pencil that is 1 – 2 shades darker than your natural color to sculpt your face and accentuate your jawline. Contouring powder just below the jawline will instantly make your face appear narrower by subtly making your double chin disappear.

For the double chin, be sure to try this trick . Apply a bronzer a few shades darker than your skin tone under your jawline and under your chin to reduce the double chin. Don’t choose a bronzer that is too dark, as this can make the double chin appear too prominent.

Makeup for round face: contouring for your cheekbones.

Make double use of your contouring pencil (or powder) by applying it to your cheekbones to make your face look narrower with makeup. Draw in your cheeks and apply the powder to the areas that appear hollow to create the illusion of cheekbone shadow and make your face look narrower.

Accentuate your cheekbones (or create them) by using a shimmery shade. Liquid beauty products look the most natural because they blend seamlessly with the skin. Dab them on with your fingers or a damp cosmetic sponge for a flawless complexion.

Conceal a wide forehead

You can conceal a wide forehead by applying a dark shade of contouring pencil to the temples and around the hairline, then spreading a lighter one in the center in a triangular shape before blending.

Narrow face makeup: highlight the center of the face.

Applying shimmery powder between your eyebrows, on the bridge of your nose, and just above your lips will draw attention to the center of your face and make your makeup make your face appear narrower.

Contour your nose to make it narrower

If you want to make your nose look narrower or more defined, you can’t avoid a good contouring. Contouring powder or a dark concealer applied to both sides of the nose and then gently blended will instantly make your nose appear narrower by creating a fake “shadow”.

Make up face narrower: wear a lighter lipstick

If you want to make your face appear narrower, you should wear a lighter lipstick, including pink tones and neutral colors, but no reds. If you choose a lipstick that is closer to your skin tone, it will look like you are blending your lips into your face. This means that your lips will look longer and wider, and your face will appear narrower.

Draw a slightly higher cupid’s bow than your natural one with a lip liner in a natural shade, which will visually elongate your face and make your pout appear plumper.

Get those cat eyes right

A great way to draw attention to your eyes and make your face appear narrower is with a classic cat eye. However, if you do cat eyes wrong, they could make your face look wider. If you use liquid eyeliner to create a cat eye, make sure the line in the outer corner of your eye is slightly upward and not across to lift your eyes and narrow your face.

Make up your face narrower: apply more eyeshadow.

Applying eyeliner, bold, multi-colored eyeshadow and mascara will make your face look much narrower. Don’t overdo it, though, because it might look messy. The only thing you should do is to draw attention to your eyes. To create a sense of unity and elongate your face, match the color of your eye shadow with the color of your eyes.

Beautiful eyebrows

To draw attention to your eyes, fill in your eyebrows following your natural arch. Why do it. Full eyebrows can draw the eye upward and make your face look longer and narrower. So make sure you don’t pluck your eyebrows too much.
