Types of face shapes - which one are you?

So many different face shapes out there, everyone's face is completely different.. But we have defining features similar to others which determines our face shape. 

Why should you know your face shape?
No, its not essential but its helpful! Certain hairstyles complement face shapes where as other hair styles look horrific. You can learn how to apply makeup to benefit your certain face shape and to show off your best assets.There are a handful of categories your face shape could fall into, so here we go and lets get started explaining.

The first tip i give you(which may sound a little strange!) Pull your hair back into a tight ponytail, grab a lipstick, preferably a bright coloured one and stand straight on to a mirror. Then in the mirror trace around the outside of your face in the reflection. Step back and take a look at the shape you drew. This will help you see which category you fall into. This step isn't necessary, but it is helpful.

You tend to have wider cheek bones, narrow smooth jawline and a narrow forehead. Celebrities: Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Mariah Carey and Uma Thurman all have oval shaped faces.

You tend to have fuller cheeks, a round jawline and a round forehead. You don't really have very defined features, and can give you a very young, youthful look. Celebrities; Kate Winslet, Drew Barrymore, Charlotte Church and Kirsten Dunst all have a round face shape.

You tend to have defined cheekbones, higher forehead and narrow smooth jawline. Celebrities; Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashlee Simpson, Elle Macpherson and Sarah Jessica Parker have an oblong shaped face. 

You tend to have a narrow chin, defined cheekbones(not as defined as the oblong) and a wider but short forehead. Celebrities; Michelle Pfeiffer, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Claudia Schiffer, and Naomi Campbell have all got heart shaped faces.

Your forehead, cheek bones and jawline tend to be around the same width, you have quite a squared jawline. This face shape can appear quite masculine if your not careful with your hairstyle and makeup. Celebrities; Sandra Bullock, Demi Moore, Rosario Dawson and Angelina Jolie

If you are still unsure run your fingers over your jawline to feel the shape and structure, you will then get a better idea as to what face shape you have.
