Do you know what your face shape is? Every person's face is different, however, the vast majority of faces fit into one of the following categories: Heart, Square, Oval, Round, Oblong, and Diamond. Knowing your face shape is very useful because that will help you pick the right earrings, the perfect haircut, makeup you should wear, a suitable pair of glasses, because a style that looks great on one face shape won't complement another face shape in quite the same way.
To determine your face shape simply grab a flexible tape measure and takes the following measurements and read them then write them down on a piece of paper:
1. Forehead: Look straight ahead into a mirror and place the start point of the measuring tape on one side of your forehead at its widest point. Run the measuring tape along your forehead horizontally until you come to the same point on the opposite side of your forehead.
2. Cheekbones: Measure across your upper cheeks. Start by placing the end of your tape measure just past the outer corner of your eye. Then, lay the tape measure in a straight line across the bridge of your nose to just past the outer corner of your other eye this is the end point of measurement.
3. Jawline: Measure from the tip of your chin to the point below your ear where your jaw angles upward. Usually, this is an inch or so below the bottom of your ear. Multiply that number by two to get the combined length of both sides of your jaw.
4. Face length: Find the exact middle of your hairline; this is your starting point. Run the tape measure down your face to the tip of your chin.
Note which measurement is the largest, and use the information below to determine your face shape.
