How to look thinner with makeup
Using makeup is a great way to transform yourself when you want to look stunning, not only because it’ll make your face look more attractive, but also because it’ll help you to contour your face and make it look slimmer.
Using a bronzer, contour your face so you’ll highlight your cheekbones and hide the cheeks. When you highlight your cheekbones, the areas of the face that look slightly chubby, will go into the background, while other parts will stand in the foreground, and guaranteed to get thinner appearance. Here’s an easy way on how to contour your face using just a bronzer and highlighter:
Gather your lips and make a ‘fish’ face. Using an angled blush brush, apply bronzer in the hollows of your cheeks. This way, you’ll make a deeper shadow on your cheeks which will make your cheekbones to stand out. Apply a little bit of bronzer on your temples too, because it’ll make your face look longer and slimmer.
If you have a little bit of double chin, you can hide it with bronzer too. With a blush brush, apply some bronzer on your jaw bone and bring it slightly to the neck. Start to contour from behind your left ear all the way to your right ear. Make sure that you blend everything together with a clean blush brush.
And don’t forget to highlight the beautiful features of your face. Apply highlighter where the light naturally falls on your face, for example in the center of your forehead, on the bridge of your nose, on the center of your chin and on your cupid’s bow. Of course, apply some blush on your cheeks too.
Of course there are tons of ways to contour your face using makeup. Some women for example use two high coverage foundations, one that’s 1-2 shades darker than their skin tone and one that’s 1-2 shades lighter. You can watch some online videos that will show you how to do face contouring in details.
How to look thinner with a hairstyle
The perfect hairstyle can frame your face beautifully and it’ll make your facial features more attractive. But a bad hairstyle can make things even worse. For example if you have a round face, don’t cut your hair in a bob hairstyle because it’ll only emphasize the circular shape of your face. The most important thing is to find the perfect haircut for your face shape that will make your face look more attractive and beautiful.
Here are few suggestions on how to look thinner with a hairstyle:
High ponytail. Gather your hair into a high ponytail. This way you’ll get a small ‘face lift’ and you’ll get a hairstyle that will highlight your cheekbones.
Wavy hairstyle. Don’t wear a perfectly straight hair. Hair straightener is your enemy if you want to look thinner. Straight hair stands flat on your head, and as a result, your head will look smaller and your face will be fully highlighted. Grab your hair curler and create a modern wavy hair, especially if you have a longer hair with layers.
Side part. Avoid parting your hair in the middle of your head. If you want to elongate your face and make it look slimmer, do a side part.
Finally, keep your head high. Fill yourself with confidence, because if you have self-confidence you’ll look attractive in the eyes of others. Also, the good posture will instantly make you look more beautiful.
Skip the chewing gum. Chewing gum will make you swallow a lot of air and it’ll bloat your tummy.
Drink plenty of water. The more water you drink, the more you’ll help your body to get rid of excess fluids and toxins. If your body doesn’t get enough water, it’ll store more water and you look bloated.
Stay away from soft drinks. Don’t satisfy your thirst with soft drinks, even if they’re diet drinks. Studies show that the sodium that soft drinks contain can increase the appetite.
