The primary goal for rectangular shaped faces, similarly to square faces, is to round off the corners of your face, although you already have a beautifully long face shape! Drawing attention to the centre of the face will help with this goal. You should also minimize the height of your forehead if possible through contouring and hairstyle choices.
Contouring is important for those with rectangular face shapes in particular, and as such, you will need to use bronzer to contour around your temples and hairline, as well as the hollow parts of your cheekbones and jaw. This will create a softer look for your face and minimize the length of your forehead particularly. Highlighting the ball of your chin will minimise the existing straight-angle lines, and highlighting the centre of your nose and below your eyes will also help draw more attention to the centre of your face, giving a more rounded, smooth look overall.
For your eyes, you will want to create a more dramatic look with extra lashes and a gentle, natural arch to the eyebrows. This helps draw attention towards your eyes and away from your forehead or sharp chin directly, allowing you to captivate anyone who walks by! Notably, your eye shape is crucial for ensuring you are able to fill out your temples and hold attention, so the natural arch on the eyebrows can give a softer and rounder illusion overall.
For those with rectangular face shapes, a careful choice of lipstick is needed to draw extra attention to the centre of your face; a medium or bright colour in keeping with your mood that day will often be a good option here. Try to opt against light shades, as these may have less impact on your overall look. The main thing here is to try and draw attention again towards the center of your face, making your jawline appear less prominent and more rounded.
The best hairstyle that matches your look are styles that will balance out the proportions of your face. This means you should go for hairstyles that have a fringe falling over your forehead to shade the width of your hairline. Your forehead will not stand out as much and it also adds softer curves to your face. Go for styles that fall down the sides of your face all the way past your jaw; to soften your jawline and reduce the prominence of your temples and cheekbones. However, any style you go for should be from shoulder length and longer as these will make your face look a little shorter. If you fancy wearing all your hair back in a ponytail, then make sure you leave some wisps of hair on the sides as this will soften your cheekbones. An off centre or side parting will also soften your features.
Now for the glasses that will round off the perfect look. We want glasses that will give your face shape more of a rounder appearance. The frames that will do this best are large frames; as these will actually make your face look shorter. You can also rock shades with oval or even square frames. As long as the edges have curves; as that will really soften the straight edges of your facial bone structure.
Now your new look is complete! The rest is up to you on how you own it and work it.If you wish to ask me something about face shape, add it as a comment here
