The objective: If your face is rectangular or oblong, your first motive will be to show the face as oval 


The technique: To make your face look a little less oblong, apply pinkish shade onto the cheeks using a multi-volume brush. To make your eyelashes look bigger, use feather-like synthetic lashes that appear naturally flawless. As for the lips, you must use rosy pink shade to make the face look fuller

The objective: The first objective is to make your face look a little bit elongated, so as to minimize the oval effect


The technique: Most of the people with an oval-shaped face do not have a sharp, pointed nose. What you can do is to take a bronzer and contour the sides of your nose bridge. To make your face elongated, suck cheeks in and apply blush
