Square Face Shape
Oblong Face Shape
Although oblong face shapes are found throughout both women and men they are most common in men.
The length of the face is longer than the width and tends to have a prominent chin and can also be common for the forehead to be slightly longer.
Here you would contour the chin to make it appear shorter and shorten the face, blush would be applied on the applies of the cheeks to widen the face.
A celebrity with this face shape is Sarah Jessica Parker.
Round Face Shape
Round face shapes usually have rounded forehead and chin with fuller not very prominent cheeks.
This is where you would use the typical '3' contour where you'd contour the temples, cheekbones and jawline in 3 shape to make the face appear narrower and more oval then highlight the chin and forehead.
A celebrity example is Kirsten Dunst.
Diamond Face Shape
The diamond face shape is the face shape of which I have. People with a diamond face shape have narrower foreheads and jawlines and fuller cheeks.
They would contour their cheekbones to make them appear narrower like their forehead and chin.
Celebrities with this facial shape include Rihanna.
I hope this blog post has helped you get your head around the different face shapes and how to contour for your face shape.
