MAY 30, 2019 / BC

MELBOURNE, Australia  Is your head a little square? Round like a ball or a lovely heart shape?

 

Follow along as our in-house stylists delve deep into the theories behind face shapes and pair them with the most suitable shades on the market today.

First things first; find your face shape by looking directly into a mirror with your hair behind your ears (no hair? no problem).

Then match your faces silhouette to the ones described below and discover our pick just for you.

FULL CHEEKBONES,

ROUNDED FOREHEAD AND JAW

#ANGELFACE

Ok so your face is a little round and circular? Divine darling! 

 

Both wide and angular frames will help compliment those perfect curves by adding some defined angles.

 

Also look for deeper colours when selecting shades, as black and tortoise shell will help minimise fullness.
