D id you just gain a few pounds but your face makes you look heavier than you actually are? Or is your face shape so round that it makes you look fat every time you take pictures with anyone? It can really be stressful and annoying at times. Believe me, I’m one of those women whose face automatically gets “big” even if I only gained a few pounds. And if I lose weight, that’s the last place that will show any sign of weight loss. I have always been bothered by this, so I searched for tricks and tips to look slimmer from my neck up.
Here are some tips to look slimmer I have tried and have been proven to work.
If you want to make your face look thinner, get a haircut that helps you make your face look oval instead of round. Layers can be good for those who’ve a round (or chubby) face. Fringes and long layers along the lines of the cheekbone will give your face a slimmer look as it accentuates your cheekbones and highlights your bone structure. Never go for blunt-cut bangs as it cuts your face in two, making you look shorter and your face wider.
Another trick is to be mindful of how you style your hair. Volume is one thing to remember when you’re styling your hair. If you add more volume to the hair at the crown of your head, this will help slim your round face down. Also, avoid parting your hair at the center because you’re drawing attention to the roundness of your face. Try a side part as it makes your face a little less symmetrical
Makeup tricks help
How you put makeup on can instantly make you look a few pounds thinner. It’s all about optical illusion. You can look thinner by contouring. It’s also important to note that your pressed powder should be one or two shades darker than your skin. Make sure you get the right amount of blending and shading along your cheekbones and your jaw line to achieve that slimming effect on your face..
The accessories you wear can actually make your face look bigger or thinner, so you must choose wisely. Just like makeup, accessories can help create an illusion of a slimmer face. Go for long dangly earrings as opposed to big or wide ones. Any necklace that is long and points down to the center can also elongate your face and make you look slimmer.
Working out and getting fit should always be on your list if you want to look slimmer; however, if what you need is a quick fix, these tips to look slimmer should do the trick.
