If you have heart face shape, you know, you look like Tyra Banks for your face shape. Beautiful triangle shape. And you know what? The best hairstyle that matches your look are ones that slim down your jaw line and reduce the width of your forehead; which are prominent features on your type of face shape. There are different hairstyles you can do with short, medium and long hair lengths which can achieve this. Yes, I said short hairstyle; one would think that because triangle face shapes have a prominent jaw line and forehead, wearing a short hairstyle would be a little of a risky style to do, but in actual fact there are a few short styles which a triangle face shape can carry off nicely. As long as the top of the hairstyle is layered heavily this will balance the dimensions of your face and make it look rounder and softer. For a short style you could have a sleek retro crop, short sides and a cool modern bouffant on the top, or you could have a pixie with a fringe; the bangs can be long, short, heavy or wispy, whichever way you want them is fine because what matters here is the fringe; which will narrow down the width of your forehead and at the same time round off the shape of your face.
For short to medium length hair you can have a bob or a long bob; also known as a lob. This style works well with bangs falling straight over your forehead down to your eyebrows and even eyes; which will make your face look shorter and wider, or you can have the bangs swept to the side, its up to you. Either of these styles will balance out the proportions of your face by reducing the width of your forehead, and softens the jaw area giving you an oh-so-cute look. Also, with the medium length style, having the hair fall just past the jaw area also does its own magic of lessening the hardness of the jawline.
Long hairstyles can be straight or curly, which ever style you want, as long as you get a centre parting which allows the hair to fall nicely on either side of your face. Not only will it frame your face nicely by drawing attention inwards towards your eyes, nose and gorgeous lips, but it will also make your face look longer and slimmer. You can play around with any long style really…and by the way, if you ever wear your hair as a ponytail then make sure you have a fringe or at least have some wisps of hair which fall down past your jaw line in order to frame it as this will make it to look softer.
Now my dear, when it comes to your make-up, we are gonna get creative with contouring in order to work the magic to make your face look longer or even a little rounder; depending on the subtle variances nature blessed you with as not all triangle face shapes look exactly the same….basically darling, your contour brush is your magic wand which will work this magic for you. Either way, the goal of contouring is to reduce the width of your forehead and at the same time create the illusion that your jaws and cheekbones are wider. This will totally balance out the proportions of your face, so the emphasis and focus will be more on features that will make heads turn and get the men scrambling for your phone number.
When contouring use a bronzer to shade your temple areas in order to reduce the width of the forehead, use bronzer as well around your jawline to make it appear slimmer and reduce the sharpness. When doing your cheeks contour the area near your ear to the corners of your mouth to make your face appear a little longer. We want to draw attention to the middle of your face so you need to highlight your forehead and the part of your chin that juts out the most.
Your eyebrows will look lovely with an angular arch and with more focus on the colours used around your eyes; we want the dramatic look so as to draw attention to your gorgeous eyes. That is why you shouldn’t be shy to add extra eyelashes or even get creative with your eyeshadow; which should be slightly darker than your skin tone or you could go for a shade that will compliment the colour of your outfit. They say the eyes are the windows into the soul, well, we want you to draw peoples eyes into your soul…what they see there is up to you.
When choosing the colour for your lips don’t go for anything too bright, as we do not want to draw attention to your chin area, so go for a cooler colour or a neutral type of colour that looks almost the same as your skin tone.
Don’t forget to add blush to your cheekbones to minimize the appearance of your strong jawline.
Now for the sunglasses to finish off your new look. When choosing the perfect sunglasses for your face shape we want to draw attention away from your jaw area so we are going to be a little more dramatic with the shades you wear. We are going to do this with glasses that have lots of detail or colour in the top part of the frames, sort of like a bold top frame. Also make sure that the frames are wider around your temple area; wider frames will make the outline of your hair appear wider hence further balancing out the proportions of your face. I would say cat-eyes, oval, glasses with angular frames or even shades with rimless bottoms will do this.
Okay hun, I would say your transformation is done! Now the rest is up to you; go work the shape that Mother Nature gave you.
