If you have oval face shape, you know, you look like Beyonce for your face shape. Our Queen B’s oval shape! You know, the best hairstyle that matches your look are almost any style! Oval shaped faces are one of the lucky ones to be able to rock any style due to the versatility of your face shape. This means any style for short to long hair lengths will suit you. And as that is the case, we could be here all day with me going through all the hairstyles you could wear, so I’m going to give you just a few examples so you have an idea about how those hair length styles will compliment your face.
The short pixie cut will look super gorgeous on you, if we add some height at the top, and wisps of hair on the side of your face this will make your eyes and cheekbones the focal point…this style on you would look incredibly chic.
Or you could go for a short crop style swept to the side, this is where the hair is layered and you’ll have a fringe which can be swept forward onto your forehead; with a bit of scissor work, guurl! Your face would look absolutely stunning as this style will draw attention to your beautiful eyes and jaw line. You could do a long bob, also known as a ‘lob’ or a classic bob and get away with it. If you want to do a little something different you could have a short style with layered hair that has a quiff at the top and the hair on the sides shaved, this style will show off all your facial assets and give you a punk rock chic look.
For long hair you have lots to play with. You could have it long and wavy with no parting, add a wet look to it with a descent hair gel or wax, or you could put a side or centre parting which would frame your face nicely. Your hair can be straight, wavy or curly; the whole of your hair or half way from the roots, its up to you, you can do any of the styles I’ve mentioned and change things up any way you feel depending on the type of look you’re going for.
For medium length hair you can do the same thing as I’ve suggested with the long hair, you could even add bangs to any of the styles to highlight your beautiful eyes.
Now….it’s, make-up time! Even though your face shape is near enough flawless, a little contouring doesn’t hurt even the perfect ones. So, what you can focus on here is bringing attention to what you feel your best features are. You can add some blush to the apple of your cheeks or apply bronzer to the underside of your cheekbones, either of these will lift the colour of your face giving it a vibrant healthy glow. If you feel your eyes are your best features then add a natural arch to your eyebrows and thick eyelashes for a dramatic look. If your lips are what get men to open doors for you then any colour you choose to wear depending on your mood, make-up and outfit is fine, as long as you highlight those lips with lip gloss to add some excitement to your look….watch out boys! Now, it is important to remember two things though when doing make-up for an oval face is 1; You do not need to enhance all the features on your face at the same time or else it will be too much, so for example if you want to enhance your eyes on a night out then tone down the make-up you use on your cheeks and so on.
And 2; Stick to your normal foundation, simple IS better and what you know goes with your skin already is what you should work with. This is because with oval shaped faces there is some untrue chatter about being able to use different foundation to change ones face shape, but that is all it is, ‘chatter’. Foundation is based on ones skin tone and can do nothing to change your face shape.
Now you are going to be needing some bad-azz sunglasses to top your look off. But as you are one of the lucky ones with your face shape you can get away with wearing almost any type of sunglasses. So you could go for cat-eyes, wayfarer, rectangle shape or even totally round glasses. There is a general rule though I’d like you to keep in mind, and that is to always go for frames that are slightly wider than the widest part of your face in order to keep everything looking balanced.
So you see hun, there is such a thing as perfection when it comes to face shapes, and you’re one of the lucky people on earth to have that perfect oval shape. All you need to do is know how to visually present yourself to the world, and let your face do the rest..
