Want to know a secret? There are ways to achieve the coveted V face without having to break a sweat, completely giving up your favourite food or having to go under the knife. We’re revealing six beauty and fashion tricks for slimming down your face. You’re welcome, ladies.
Get a Flattering New ‘Do
Just as your makeup can instantly hide your imperfections, so can your hairstyle. Make your face appear thinner with these hair colour and style options:
It’s all about depth and shades for contouring your face, so strategically place your highlights and lowlights in your hair. Place lowlights around the facial contour area and subtle highlights towards the crown, which draw attention away from the face. Or go for a trendy ombré colour with darker roots and lighter tips. This gives the illusion of a slimmer face because dark hue recedes while the lighter shades bring your facial features forward.
Long and soft layers elongate the face, achieving a thinner look. If you want to change your hairstyle with bangs, opt for a soft fringe instead of a blunt cut that will put focus on your face.
Want an instant face-lift? Simply pull hair back into a tight and sleek ponytail that will highlight your cheekbones for a slimming effect. Avoid short ‘dos that go above the ears. These cuts will only make the face appear rounder.
