For Small Face– Highlighter is the real key player in widening a narrow face. With a great cream product like Lakme, apply highlighter on the center of the forehead, below the eyes, and on the tops of the cheeks. Hitting these high points of the face will draw attention upward and out.

(Q) Makeup for broad face  and how to achieve a slim nose

The steps for making your face look squarish or broad are these-

Step 1- Determine your face shape

Look at your face and help determine your face shape. Look close and look from far away. You can easily spot your face by noticing your jawline, cheekline and your forehead. For example, with square faces, the brow bone, the cheekbones and the jawline are all about the same width. You’ll also want to look at your chin. Shorter chins are a hallmark of square faces.

Step 2- Highlighting

Highlighting isn’t just about adding dollops of glow. Highlighting essentially means highlighting the high points in your face such as under the eyes, and high point of your cheeks. Also since your face is square make sure to pick up a highlighter two shades lighter than your shade.

(Q) What is the reason I get mouth round full black and ofter bathing get very dry mouth round

The skin around your mouth can become dark due to hyperpigmentation which is a very common cause. Hyperpigmentation is the excess production of melanin in certain areas of the skin, which make those patches darker than the rest of your skin. Some ways to tackle hyperpigmentation is-

  1. Exfoliate. If you exfoliate the area around your mouth regularly with a gentle exfoliator, it can remove dead cells and help to lighten the skin
  2. OTC Skin-Brightening Creams
  3. Medically Prescribed Ointments
  4. Laser Treatments
  5. Acid Peels

(Q) Can we layer the foundations two or more. To get desired result?

Layering your foundation is the key to a seamless finish. Getting the right coverage that looks natural, offers longevity, and the exact colour match, is tricky to find from just one product. To give skin the best finish, we start with fluid or liquid makeup to correct uneven colour, then use a hydrating cream foundation or stick to blend imperfections,. Finally nothing adds SPF protection like mineral makeup, which happens to also be ideal for knocking back shine.
