We are told that the shape of our faces affects which hairstyles, glasses, or makeup effects look best on us. We disagree. Here’s why.
Every person has one of nine face shapes: oval, round, square, rectangular, long (or oblong), heart, inverted triangle, diamond, or pear (trapeze). We are told that knowing which shape our faces are can help us choose hairstyles, glasses, or makeup effects that are the most flattering on us. We don’t agree. More about it later.
Round Face Shape
A round face tends to be as wide as it is long. This, of course, may vary a little; we are not talking precise measurement to a millimeter.
You have a classic round face if:
- You have fullness at and below your cheekbones.
- Your jaw is slightly rounded as opposed to angular.
- You have soft features in general. The difference between a round face and a square face (which also measures the same across as long) lies in the angles.
- Your neck seems short.
