Fake it till you make it part II

In part one of Fake it till you make it i shared some tips about hiding weight gain by using wardrobe pieces. In this part i will be sharing some tips on doing so using hair and make up. So without further ado, here they are…

1, Nude Blush…

When it comes to blush, use  neutral tones like browns, peaches or such instead of the usual rosy ones. Apply blush under your jaw bones instead of on the apples of your cheeks. Blend softly into your hairline. Also, avoid using shimmer on your face. Remember, the more light reflects from your face the bigger it will look.

2, Contouring… 

Lightly apply bronzer on the hollows of your cheeks and under your chin and jaw line.

3, Side swept bangs…

Unlike regular bangs, the side swept look is more subtle and the diagonal shape reduces the appearance of a fuller face.

4, Volumize your hair…

Add some body to the crown and roots by flipping hair forwards and blow drying the roots before ironing.

5, Straight hair…

Yes, its quite unusual, but straight hair distracts from any unnecessary attention to your cheek bones.

6, Manage your brows…

Brows can make your face look wider or slimmer. Dont sport very thin brows. Go to a professional for advice on what shape flatters your face.
