But Before Reading these tips u must know about your face type


This could be a bit tricky. 9 out of 10 women think they have oval face. Not all of them do!!

Visualize your face to be divided in three horizontal parts. Your forehead and eyes, your cheekbones and nose; and finally your lips and chin.

If no part of your face is especially wide, you have a round face.

If you can trace a perfect egg shape around your face, you have an oval face.

If the middle part is considerably wider (you can see the cheekbones protruding outwards) so that you have a narrow forehead and a narrowing jaw line, you have a diamond face.

If you have a very wide forehead, flat cheekbones and very narrow chin, you have a heart shaped or triangular face.

If you have a very wide forehead and wide jaw, and the middle part is not jutting out, you have a square face.

If you have a very wide forehead and wide jaw, but your face is very long, then you have an oblong face. A wide forehead is what distinguishes an oblong face from an oval one.
