FACE SHAPE

Hello awesome people!!! Its Friday again and you know what that means??? Its Fashion Friday!! So today I would like to talk about our faces. Strange I know, but read on to see a couple of things you would find amazing about our faces.

The face is the only part of the body that is hardly covered. This is important to identify with because it means it is the part of the body that is exposed to almost every element in our environment- The sun, the rain, wind, dust, sweat, exhaust fumes etc. I mean it must be the dirtiest part of our bodies and it is the first part that tends to age faster due to this exposure.

The face is also the first thing we see about you and the first feature someone will use to prejudge you on your mood. personality and the who you are as a person. that is why we have statements like “Why are you upset?”and yet you aren’t and wondering where that statement came from. So your face tells us a lot about who you are.

So How Do I Know the Shape of My Face???

Method 1 : Trace- Out Method

  1. Stand in front of a mirror. Any large, stationary mirror will do. You should be able to easily reach it from a standing position in front of it – you’ll need to be able to draw on it without having to lean forward.
  • Stand looking directly forward into the mirror, with your back straight, your head high, and your shoulders back. If you have bangs, pull them out of the way.
  • Make sure the lighting is over head and not directional. Lighting will affect the shape you draw
  • .Trace the outline of your face. Using lipstick, a bar of soap, chalk, a dry-erase marker, or some other non-permanent sketching tool, carefully trace the outline of your face in the mirror. Start from the bottom of your chin, proceed up the edge of your face on one side past your cheek bones, follow the curve of your hairline, go down the other side of your face, and end up back at your chin. Try to stay as still as possible while you do this.
    • Don’t include your ears – just the edges of your face

 

  • Judge your facial outline

Method 2 : Using Precise Facial Measurements

Measure your cheek-to-cheek width. To find the width of your face, measure across the top of your cheekbones. Place the end of your tape measure just past the outer corner of your eye – this is your starting point. Then, carefully 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. The tape measure should be resting on the top of the “apples” of your cheeks (in other words, just on top of your cheekbones). Read the number on the tape measure and record this measurement

Measure your jaw line. Next, you’ll want to determine the size of your jaw. Look straight ahead into the mirror and find the widest part of your jaw. Usually, this is an inch or so below the bottom of your ear. This will be the starting point for your measurement. Measure from this spot to the tip of your chin. Then, simply multiply this number by two to get the combined length of both sides of your jaw. Record this number

Measure your forehead. Look straight ahead into the mirror and find the widest part of your forehead. Usually, this is about halfway between your eyebrows and your hairline. 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. Read the number on the tape measure and record this measurement.

Measure the length of your face. Finally, it’s time to determine the length (or “height”) of your face. Find the exact middle of your hairline (the line formed where your hair meets your forehead). Start your tape measure at this middle point. Run the measuring tape down your face, over your nose, and to the tip of your chin. Read the number at the end point and write down this measurement.

  • For men and women with shaved/bald heads – try to measure from the point where your hairline would be. Unless you’ve shaved your head within the past few days, you should be able to feel the light “stubble” of new hair growth at the top of your forehead. If you’re unsure, estimate by raising your eyebrows and measuring from just above the highest wrinkle that forms on your forehead.

There you have it. Knowing your face shape helps you determine the best styles that go with you to bring out the best in you!!
