How to make your face look slimmer (tips and tricks)

Eyes

The bigger and wider your eyes look, the slimmer the rest of your face appears. False eyelashes applied to the outer corners of your eyes will make them look bigger (think doe eyes), and so will extra mascara (but only on upper lashes as applying on lower lashes makes eyes appear smaller).
Tip: Well-groomed brows add definition and interest to the center of your face and take the focus off the perimeter.


Lips

When your lips look small, the rest of your face looks larger by comparison. The best way to plump up your lips is to dab a shimmery gloss in the middle of your lower lip (on top of a nude lipstick or gloss pick one that closely matches your natural lip colour).
Tip: Don't line your lips with liner dark liner, it'll make your lips look smaller.


Cheeks

Bring out the angles in your face by highlighting the "high points" of your face (cheek and brow bones) using iridescent powder.
Tip: Use your regular blush and eye colors in the areas that recede, like the hollows of your cheeks and the creases of your eyes, to exaggerate the effects.
