If you have diamond face shape, you know, you look like Kate Bosworth for your face shape. Lovely diamond shape. You know, the best hairstyle that matches your look are styles where you have bangs. Updo’s and ponytails always look good on diamond shaped faces but you can’t wear this all the time as they are best for formal type of occasions. But bangs are something you can wear all day, everyday and to any occasion. You gotta be careful though, because bangs can be a hit or a miss on diamond shaped faces, but when you get it right it can literally open doors for you. As you have a strong facial bone structure, hairstyles with bangs will not only soften your face but also shorten the length of your face. Honey, you can achieve this with short, medium and long hairstyles; there’s nothing stopping you from rocking the look you want, we just need to know how to make it work for you. If you fancy a short trendy or even a medium length style, you should go for one with bangs that sweep to one side of your face so the edges of the hair and how they rest on your face will be what people focus on more than the strong cheekbones. Straight bangs are a NO-NO on a diamond shaped face as they can look heavy and are harder to control as you go through your day, so when we say bangs; it always has to be sweeping to a side of your face.
If you want to try a long hairstyle then it needs to have lots of layers, that way it takes the focus away from your chin and wide cheekbones. The hair can be curly or straight, you choose what you feel like wearing, but a bang with a side sweep; with the help of a slightly off-centre parting, will seal the look you’re going for.
When your hair is sorted and looking fine, then the next thing we got to make sure is on point is your make-up. It is very important when you have a diamond shaped face to always use two shades of foundation. The lighter colour is for areas you want to highlight; such as your forehead and chin, and the darker colour should be used on areas you want to take the emphasis away from; such as your cheekbones which are beautifully strong features on your face. You can achieve this by using the darker or warmer colour on the outside of your cheekbones. As your facial features already stand out making you gorgeously unique, there is no need to do anything fancy with your eyebrows or lips; just keep them looking natural and follow the natural lines you were blessed with.
Finally, to set off your whole look we need to get you in shades that will turn heads. The type of sunglasses that will compliment your face should have frames with soft curves such as oval, cat-eye, semi-rim glasses and glasses where the top half is darker and the lower half is lighter in colour; just so it balances out the features of your face. You could even wear retro sunglasses; the browline which are often semi-rimless and was all the rage in the 1950s and 60s are making a huge come back now. Your type of face shape is one of the few that has the flair to naturally carry this retro look. So you see, having a diamond shaped face is a blessing that comes with a responsibility, because knowing what suits your face not only makes you stand out from the crowd in a good way, but it shows people this is someone who knows herself, is confident strutting what nature gave her, and she is doing it so well.
