Determine your face shape by simple measurements
Stand in front of a big mirror with a tape. You have to take 4 measurements with this tape and note it down.
1. Length of one cheekbone to other cheekbone: Place the tape on your cheekbone Starting from the outer corner of one eye, to other eye. Note down the length â€œAâ€.
2. Jawline: Place the tape below your ear and measure the length along jawline till middle of your chin. Double this length by multiplying it by 2 so that you get total jawline length â€œBâ€.
3. Forehead: Place the tape on the widest portion of your forehead. Run the tape to the opposite point and note the measurement â€œCâ€.
4. Total face length: sorry there is a mistake in picture above (my self drawn picture). The measurement should start from the mid of your hairline, following nose bridge, to the tip of your chin, note the length â€œDâ€.
Results: 1. You have Oval face if D (face length) = 1 ½ times A (breadth of face)
Oval Face Shape
2.You have Round face if D = A approx
3.You have Square face if D is as much as A but the difference of square face from round face is that it has a more angular shape in comparison to round face.
4.You have Triangular face if Jawline is prominen approx t but cheekbone and templeis narrow.
5.You have rectangular face if the face is angular, and D (face length) is more than A (length of cheekbones)
6.You have heart shaped face if C (forehead) and A (cheekbone) are wider andjawline (B) is narrow. Just opposite to triangular face..
Heart shape Face
Diamond shape face shape
There is also a diamond shape face which has narrow forehead, narrow jawline (which is approx equal in length) but broad cheekbones.
I hope like me you too will feel little more confident about your face shape now
