Contour Contouring isn't something that you'll want to do for your everyday makeup, because it's time-consuming. But for special occasions it will work beautifully to slim your face. Use a darker color to make the sides of your face recede, and a lighter color to bring out the features you want to draw attention to.


Contouring is a great way to slim the face and draw attention to the features you want to highlight. To contour, use a darker shade of makeup along the sides of your face to make it appear slimmer. Then, use a lighter shade of makeup to bring out the features you want to draw attention to. For best results, use a matte foundation and a powder bronzer. You can also use a cream contour product for a more natural look. Be sure to blend the colors together to create a seamless look. Contouring is time-consuming, so it is best reserved for special occasions.



Highlighter Highlighter is a very quick way to make your face appear slimmer, by taking attention away from the wider areas of your cheeks. You will need to apply it down the center of your face. Start between your eyebrows and work your way down. Put the highlighter on the bridge of your nose, then just above your upper lip, and finally on the middle of your chin.


Highlighting is a great way to make your face look thinner as it draws attention away from the wider areas of your face such as the cheeks. Highlighting should be applied down the center of the face, starting between the eyebrows and working down to the bridge of the nose, just above the upper lip, and finally on the middle of the chin. Highlighter can be found in many shades and colors, so you can choose one that best suits your skin tone. When applying highlighter, it is important to use a light hand and blend the product out so that it looks natural. You can also use highlighter to create the illusion of a sharper jawline by applying it along the jawline.


EMPHASIze Your Eyes

EMPHASIze Your Eyes Another trick to focus attention away from the wider parts of your face is to emphasize your eyes. Use a shade of eyeshadow that's flattering to your coloring, and add highlighter to the corner of your eye and underneath the brow bone. But to avoid drawing attention to your eyes for the wrong reason, make sure that you cover up any dark circles.


Chubby Chin

Chubby Chin If your chin isn't quite as slim as you'd like it to be, your bronzer will come in handy to make it appear slimmer. Apply the bronzer along your jawline. Be sure to blend it very well, so that you don't end up with some very obvious stripes.


Hair Hues

Hair Hues You can also use your hair to make your face look slimmer. But rather than using your hair to try to hide your face, which may not be terribly effective, use a clever color trick to slim your face. Color your hair ombre (darker hair with lighter tips). You can also color the strands around your face in a darker shade, with lighter highlights around the crown.


Cat's Eye

Cat's Eye Cat's eye makeup is always in vogue, and it's a style that will help girls who want to make their face seem slimmer. This is because the line of the 'cat's eye' sweeps upwards. This draws attention to the outer corner of the eye and thus away from the side of the face where it is widest.



Shimmer Another way to draw the eye away from the width of your face is with a shimmery product. Apply the product along your collarbone and cheekbones. Like the highlighter, this will reflect light on your bone structure, and thus make it appear slimmer. Use a powder or cream product.

While you can't do much to change the shape of your face, aside from losing a few pounds if you need to, clever makeup tricks like these can be used to give the illusion of a slimmer face. Contouring can change the look of your face, if you want to put in the time! Which makeup product could you not live without?
