How to determine your face shape?

A wide or narrow forehead :A wide forehead can mean that you belongto the shape of oval faces or face in heart or even diamond, especially if the lower face ends in a point, with thin jaws. If your chin is pointed, with prominent cheekbones, you are probably a heart or diamond (or inverted triangle) face. If your cheekbones are thin, with a forehead the same width as the jaws, you have an oval face shape.

Cheekbones:The widest face shapes around the cheekbones usually belong to round faces, but the length of your face also comes into play. With a round face, the width and length measurements are basically equal.

Jaws and lower face:If your jaw is the widest part of your face, you have a square face shape or triangle. In the case of a square face, the width of the forehead, cheeks and jawline are almost equal. In the case of a triangle face, the jaws are the widest part of your face.
