Vertical contouring will help to visually narrow the face and emphasize the cheekbones

Makeup is, in particular, a way to harmonize the shape and features of the face for those who are dissatisfied with them. And although there is no such thing as a bad shape, it is often people with round faces who complain about it.

Of course, TikTok has found a life hack for them. You can emphasize the cheekbones and make them more expressive with the help of contouring. However, the usual approach will not work here. OBOZ.UA tells you what exactly you need to do to correct a round face.

A round face requires not the usual horizontal but vertical contouring. It will help to visually narrow the lower part of the face and at the same time emphasize the cheekbones.

Start by using a contouring stick to draw three or four vertical lines from the hollow under the cheekbone. That's where you would normally do the contouring in the traditional approach. However, here we change the direction of the line.

Next, blend the product carefully so that no streaks remain on the skin. This darkened area should create the illusion of a narrower face.

But you don't have to stop there. Apply another drop of sculptor to the chin so that the darkened area does not end abruptly at the cheek. This will ensure a smoother and more natural transition. But don't overdo it with the amount so that it doesn't look like a stubble.

It is also very important to choose the right color of the bronzer or sculptor. The shade should not be too dark and not too light. It should be less noticeable than horizontal contouring but still create shading.

Choose a shade that is very close to your natural skin color. This will reduce the sharpness of the contrast and make the look more natural. It is also better to give preference to cold colors. They will help to truly imitate natural depth.
