Hi, I'm Christine. I'm a makeup artist and today I'm going to show you makeup tricks to make your oval face look slimmer. The things you'll need are a bronzer, preferably with no shimmer, a contour brush, either eye shadow or a light powder like these and a small fluffy brush. The first step is going to be to apply the bronzer. You just take the contour brush, you dip it in the bronzer, tap out the excess and then we're going to go into the cheekbones to carve out the hollows of the cheeks. You can make a fish fish to carve out the hollows of the cheeks if you want like this and then you kind of know where to go. So, you go up, and then kind of around the bend here on both sides and you can take it up into the temple. We're just trying to create a shadow all the way around the face to slim it out. The next step is going to be the jawline. You're going to take the same brush, same bronzer and trace along your jawline to create a shadow. Start all the way up here, work your way under the chin and all the way to the other side. Once we have that done we only have one more step and that's the forehead. We're going to outline where the hairline is to slim the forehead. Now we're on to the last step which is highlighting. We're going to take that small fluffy brush and dip it into the light color here and use that to highlight the cheekbones. Tap off your excess again and then go into the top of the cheekbone and we're going to create a highlight just like we created the shadows. And this will make the high planes of the face kind of pop out. You can also do here on the nose and if you don't have already, on your eyebrow bones. And there you have it. That is how you can make your oval face look slimmer by creating shadows and highlights with your bronzer and your eye shadows or powders. Thank you so much for watching. I'm Christine.
