Makeup can do wonders and make you look completely unrecognizable, just you have to learn some basic makeup artist tricks and tips which will make your face look slim instantly.

Just like in the art dark shades recede while the lighter shades bring features forward, the same concept is used in makeup too.

Here are some tips on how to do makeup to make your face look slim.


With the powder slightly darker than your skin, draw a line along your cheekbone. Blend it from your ear to the corner of your mouth. Just above the darker line, apply a line of your favorite blush and blend it in the same direction. Then, above your blush, add a hint of highlighter to really define your cheekbones.

For a thinner nose draw line on each side of your nose using the dark powder and blend it also apply highlighter above the nose, between your eyebrows and draw a line in the center and blend it with your skin.

Blend your contour shades into temples and around the hairline to emphasize the angles of your bone structure.


Choose the right eyebrow shape as they play a bigger part in how your face looks. Your eyebrows should be substantial, but not thick, and have a defined arch in the middle. A higher and more pronounced arch helps balance out a round face by vertical stretching its appearance.

Play up your eyes as eyes that look large with makeup will make the rest of the face appear small in comparison. Use eyeliner and mascara that makes your eyes appear larger, and use an eyeshadow that works well with your skin tone and eye color.

Dark lips can actually make you look heavier, so go on for a light pink lip to make your face look light. Nude color also makes your lips look thin, but pink lips are the best makeup tool to help you look slim.
