You’ve heard it before: makeup is the key to a thinner face. But what does that really mean? Well, first off, there are a lot of different ways to make your face look thinner.
If you’re going for a more natural look (like me), then I recommend using as little makeup as possible and trying to highlight only where needed—in other words, contouring and highlighting!
Then there’s also blending out some areas with bronzer or foundation so they don’t stand out too much against your skin tone (which can make people think you have rosacea).
Use Foundation and Loose Powder.
To make your face look thinner, you will need to use a foundation and loose powder. The best way to do this is by applying a shade lighter than your skin tone with a liquid or cream foundation.
Then, apply loose powder over the top of the foundation for an even finish and set it with some translucent powder (like MAC Studio Fix).
You can also use an eyeshadow brush in place of blush on lips for an added pop of color if you’re feeling brave!
Contour Your Face With Bronzer.
Contouring is a technique used to make the face look thinner, and it’s easy to do. Just apply bronzer on top of foundation or in place of it for an instant contour effect that will help you appear slimmer by evening out your shade and highlighting only those areas where you want more definition (think cheeks).
- Apply highlighter to your cheekbones, nose and chin.
- Start by applying a small dot of highlighter on the tops of your cheekbones. Then, move up towards the bridge of your nose and under it as well (this will give you an artificial lift). Finally, apply another dot directly above your chin—this is where you want to see most of the light reflection coming from!
Thin Out Your Eyebrows.
You can also use a brow pencil to thin out your eyebrows. This is an easy way to make them look thinner without making them appear too sparse or drawn on.
You’ll want to make sure that you apply it in an upward motion, which will help create more space between the arch of your eyebrow and the rest of your face. Then, once you’ve brushed it up onto your hairline, brush it down again at least once or twice more before letting each individual brow hairs grow into their own natural shape (this process takes about 30 seconds).
Finally, finish off with a spoolie brush—this will help define each individual hair so that they stand out from one another better than if they were all uniform in size and shape
Choose a Makeup Color That Complements Your Skin Tone.
When it comes to choosing a makeup color that complements your skin tone, you want to stay away from orange or yellow.
These colors will make your face look more chubby and older than it actually is. Instead of choosing a shade that’s several shades lighter than your natural complexion, opt for one that’s just right in comparison: choose something like “Coral Glow” by MAC Cosmetics (available at Sephora) or “Light Natural Tan” by Lancôme (available at Nordstrom).
These will give you that natural look without making the roundness seem exaggerated by adding too much shine or contrast.
Use a foundation brush to apply this formula evenly over the entire face; avoid using your fingers because they tend to pick up excess product while applying foundation directly onto their skin surface—this can cause streaks!
Use Contouring and Highlighting to Make Your Face Look Longer- Rather Than Wider- and Add in Some Fake Cheekbones to Make it Look Thinner.
If you’re looking to make your face look longer and thinner, contouring and highlighting are a great way to do it. Contouring is when you use the right amount of makeup on specific areas of your face to create a shadow effect.
This can be done with foundation or powder, but using liquid makeup will give you more control over how dark or light each area is.
Highlighting refers to using bright colors and creating shadows in order for an area like the bridge of your nose or cheekbones appear thicker and more defined (and therefore slimmer). In order for this technique work best on someone who has an oval shaped face shape like mine—you’ll want something that’s not too heavy because anything heavier can overpower their face shape making them look wider instead!
Fake Cheekbones: Fake Cheekbones are one way we trick people into thinking our faces are thinner than they really are simply by adding some structure around our cheeks which gives off impressions that we have “high” cheekbones when in reality all we did was add some color/shadowing onto them!
And that’s it! We hope you’ve enjoyed reading about the best ways to make your face look thinner and longer.
We know it can be hard to find the right makeup for your face, but remember that there are so many options out there- and sometimes, it takes a little trial and error before finding what works best.
As we said at the beginning of this article: no matter how much or how little makeup you do wear on a daily basis, make sure it looks natural!
