Makeup Tips for Heart-Shaped Faces

Heart-shaped face is the most common shape for many ordinary girls and celebrities. Cheryl Cole, Ashley Greene and Eva Longoria, Mary-Kate Olsen- just naming a few celebrities with a heart-shaped face. The list can go on for a long time. This shape assumes that you have a rather wide forehead and small chin. In addition, the cheekbones are well highlighted. Using easy makeup tips for heart-shaped faces is essential to emphasize the benefits of the shape and to hide the disadvantages.


Makeup for Heart-Shaped Faces: Thick Brows

If you are lucky to have thick brows, then you should keep them. This way you will allow your forehead to appear narrower, than it really is. The arch of the eyebrow should be as straight as possible. If you have thin brows, you can use eye pencil to make them look wider.

Makeup for Heart-Shaped Faces: Contour with Bronzer

The contours of the heart-shaped face are not that vivid, so adding a bit of bronzer will not harm. The bronzer can be applied to the upper part of the cheekbones, forehead and nose. The chin should be left for the concealer.

Makeup for Heart-Shaped Faces: Use Concealer for the Chin

The small chin can be visually enlarged with the help of concealer. The lighter concealer should be applied with the help of a cotton pad or sponge. The lighter contrast will make it appear wider. Make sure that the contrast between the main foundation and concealer does not differ too much, since you don’t want it to look like a tinted part.


Makeup for Heart-Shaped Faces: Limited Blush

Similar to oval faces, the cheekbones are already highlighted and there’s no need for overdoing with color.  The blush should be applied in a vertical sweep. The color of it should not be too dark. The light caramel, peach and pink shades will be the best choices.

Makeup for Heart-Shaped Faces: Dark Highlighted Eyes

Dark eyeliner will help you shift the focal point from the lower part of the face to the eyes. Any darker shade will be ok, including brown, green, black and navy blue. Choose the one that looks good for your eye and skin color.

Makeup for Heart-Shaped Faces: Lip Liner for the Upper Lip

Yes! The lip lining pencil should be applied only to the upper lip. This way the attention from the chin will be fully derived. To dissolve the contrast you can apply a thick layer of lip-gloss over the lipstick.
