The Geometry of Faces: How to Blush and Bronze For Your Face Shape

Are you a square, round, oval, or a heart? What is your face shape?

Yes, every person out there is unique, however, the basic shape of your face likely falls into one of four categories - square, oval, round, and heart shaped.

Each shape is beautiful and creates different angles, but because of the shape of your underlying bone structure, each face shape needs to be treated differently, especially in the application of blush and bronzer.

Contouring your face is an awesome way to amp up your routine and get glamour gorgeous, and each face shape can achieve beautiful contours, but each requires a different method.

For square faces, apply your bronzer in a sideways triangle next to your ear and apply your blush to the center of your cheeks.

For oval faces, apply your bronzer in a sideways triangle just below your cheekbone and apply your blush in a horizontal rectangle on top of the triangle of bronzer.

For round faces, apply bronzer under your cheekbone in a sideways triangle and apply your blush in a horizontal rectangle on top of the bronzer.

For heart faces, apply blush in a sideways triangle and apply your bronzer underneath that in a horizontal rectangle.

You see I've given a lot of thought as to the best way to enhance your features, which for me is probably your eyes, your cheekbones, and your mouth. Your blush and bronzer are best when used to make your eyes sparkle, to make your cheekbones stand out, and your mouth look the sexiest. I'm sharing with you my secrets for how to apply your blush and bronzer to make you the most gorgeous, glowing you.

Why Using Toner is Important!

We all have our daily facial routine. Some of us go with the pure basics of washing and if we feel dry, add some moisturizer.  Some of us go a little further and use serums and some of us are wise to exfoliate.  No matter what side of the facial routine bridge you stand on, you are probably looking for your skin to be different and better.  Maybe your pores need to be tighter, maybe you are still oily after washing, maybe you are super dry after washing.  Using a toner can help with all of these issue and more.  Toners have the amazing capability of correcting your Ph balance, tightening your pores, removing any left over traces of makeup and/or dirt after cleansing, helping the moisturizers and serums penetrate deeper into your skin, refreshes and awakes your skin.  If you have skin feeling like the Sahara Desert then choose a toner that is full of humectants and not an astringent, like a rosewater based toner or our Faces Beautiful Hydrating toner would work wonders for you!  If your skin is more on the oily side even after you cleanse then you may want something along the side of our Faces Beautiful Papaya Enzyme Toner or Peter Thomas Roth Conditioning Tonic.  There are so many different toners to choose from, make sure you are choosing the best one for your skin type!

How Your Brow Shape Effects Your Face

Let's play a game of good brow, bad brow.

If I'm a bad brow, I might be too thick or thin, too far or too close to the nose, I might have had the wrong hairs removed, or I might not have a sexy tail. Oh how sad!

What results do I give? I might make you look angry or sad, worried or surprised, I might even make you look droopy or older than you are! My general result is less attractive than you deserve!

On the other hand, if I'm a good brow I'm going to be tailored not only to your face shape, but also to your individual asymmetry.

I'm going to make you look younger, fresher, more well rested, and generally sexier.

I'm the brow you deserve, and I'm the brow you're going to get at Faces Beautiful!

Here at Faces Beautiful we strive to give you the best eyebrows for your face. We look at how your face shape and asymmetry effect your brows naturally and then we tweeze to bring out the best shape from your natural brows.

We can't wait to see you!
