Makeup to Make Face Look Thinner

The right shape of your eyebrow

Eyebrows play a big role in how slim or heavy your face appears. Your eyebrows need to be thick with an arch in the middle. A higher arched eyebrow lifts the face and makes a round face appear slimmer. You can also use an eyebrow pencil with a shade darker than your natural brow to make them stand out.

Hide your eye circles

Dark circles add weight to your face. Cover your under eye circles with a concealer and blend it to match the rest of your face. You can also use a white eye shadow or a highlighter to the corners of your eyes to make them stand out. By making your eyes stand out your face will look slimmer.


Blushes with brown undertones make your face look slimmer. Pink or peach blushes make your cheeks appear fuller and your face appears heavier than it actually is. Apply your blush under the cheekbone and sweep it diagonally upwards to the middle of the ear. Make a “fish face” while doing this to figure out the perfect placement. Do not apply too much of it.

Highlight your eyes

The more dramatic your eyes look, the slimmer your face will appear. Use eyeliner and mascara to make your eyes appear larger and a dark shadow to add volume. Gold and pink shadows work best for blue eyes, copper and plum for green eyes and blue, teal and purple look great with brown eyes.

Bronzer is the key

In makeup, dark shades recede while lighter shades highlight the features. Use a bronzer correctly to lift the weight off your face. Apply the bronzer on the jaw line to highlight your cheek bones. Blend the bronzer properly with your makeup so that you do not appear too dark. To hide your double chin, apply bronzer on your jawline to define the area. Blend it perfectly.


Add a little touch up to your cheek bones with a light highlighter. Also apply some on the center of your nose and forehead to elongate your face and make your entire face look lighter.

Pink Lips

Dark shades of lipsticks make you look heavier. A light pink shade makes the face look light and gives fullness to your lips. Nude colors make your lips appear thinner.
