The goal for square face shapes is to create a rounder look. Therefore, softening the edges of your face while drawing attention to the middle of your face (nose, eyes, lips, and chin) will be a key goal to follow.
We have to contour the face to give it more of a roundish look. We will contour the sides of your face, including your temples and jaw areas, to give the appearance of shadowing. Then, to draw attention to the center of the face, the middle of the face needs to be highlighted, including the nose, chin, forehead, cheekbones, and above the lips. This will help to soften the outline of your face overall and provide a fresh and ready-to-go look.
Around your eyes, you’ll want to maintain a natural arch with your eyebrows to add a little more curvature to your face, but don’t be afraid to add some colour in doing so! Doing so will draw attention to the centre of your face and away from the sharper edges, giving your face a more rounded appearance overall. Besides, this can help you keep eye contact with that hot guy who next passes by!
Wear bright or head turning lipstick, to ensure that you’re draw attention inwards to the centre of your face. Bright lipsticks help to take the focus away from your wider and more angular jawline, as well as adding to your face’s final beauty overall.
The best hairstyle that matches your look are styles that will smooth out the edges. This will give your face a slightly rounder look and soften your jawline. We can also achieve this with a short, medium or even a long length style. The most important thing to remember is that with such a unique shape, we need to go for hairstyles that will compliment your face.
With a short style, you could get a fringe which is layered in a way to draw attention to your cheekbones and away from your jawline. You could get a bob with bangs on the side which will frame your face nicely. Even a pixie cut will do, and yes you can get away with it if you layer the hair at the front so as to draw eyes and attention to it.
If you want to go for a medium length style, you could have the hair falling nicely down the sides. Loose curls or straight hair is up to you. Then you could have a rounded fringe, which will give your face a rounder look. You could also have bangs that you sweep to the side; which will flatter your gorgeous cheekbones.
If you want to go for a carefree look, then you could go for a shaggy lob; this style will minimise the appearance and sharpness of your angular jawline.
A long hairstyle is a fantastic option as well. You can have an off centre, side or even a centre parting. Spice it up by getting long layers, choppy waves or even going for the really curly curls. What these styles will do for your face is give it the appearance of a smooth rounded look. It will also soften the jaw area and also draw attention away from it.
Finally for your sunglasses, keep in mind to always go for glasses that are the opposite of your face shape. This way it will balance out the proportions of your face. It will also compliment your strong features; a result of the magic curvy frames can work on square faces is to soften the angles. This means cat eyes, oval, pilot glasses or even round framed glasses will suit you. All of these will go a long way to balance out the proportions of your face; by giving it a longer and slimmer look.
I hope you now see how hairstyles, make-up and even the sunglasses you wear can mask or hide certain features you have. They also work the other way round to compliment those features that some might view as a disadvantage. This is why it is important for one to know their body and face shape. That is the only way you can work with what you have; to turn what might seem like a negative into a super plus positive.If you wish to ask me something about face shape, add it as a comment here
