5 Beauty Tricks That Make Your Face Look Thinner


While you've already mastered contouring, highlighting, and other well-known tricks to sculpt your face, there a ton of other (more under-the-radar) options. From hair color to makeup tricks to Botox (no judgment!), we're dishing on the most effective secrets we've learned from the beauty elite. Keep reading because we're about to let you in on all our very best secrets to tone and slim your face.


#1. Botox & Fillers
The timeless allure of a fabulously defined V-line spotted ubiquitously on-screen has inspired hordes of ladies to make a beeline for BOTOX® Facial Slimming and Chin Enhancement. Genetically-prone to overly bulked up jaw (masseter) muscles and a deficient chin, BOTOX® microinjection in the masseter is big hit in Asia to magically shave pounds off a heavy square jaw sans scalpel, while the Voluma High Definition Lift sculpts the perfect focal point in your V-zone for a balanced and delicate lower facial contour.

#2.  Get a Facial Massage
Waking up puffy and bloated can immediately effect your face. Drink a ton of water before bed and give a facial massage a go come morning. By using the contours of a facial roller or your hands, you can massage and sculpt your jawline and cheekbones as well as drain away puffiness from under your eyes. Here's a step by step guide on how to do so. 



#3. Sculpt your brows
The arch in your brows will help lift your face (or make it look wider). Have a professional create a bit more of an angular arch to nicely frame your face and slim it out instantly. Also, make sure not to over-tweeze. Patchy, thin brows will work in the opposite way and round out the look of your face.

Anastasia Beverly Hills' Brow Wiz's ultra-fine, retractable tip is perfect for spot-filling in areas where brow hair is sparse by mimicking fine, hair-like strokes. This pencil is idea for places where your arches may be bare or over-tweezed, and the smudge-proof formula stays put day for fresh, natural-looking brows.

#4. Va, Va, Volume
Adding volume to your hair instantly elongates your face. To create height, grab a root-lifting product and section off the hair around your crown. Spray along the part and tease underneath, back-combing from your ends to your roots. Then, smooth the top of your hair and voilĂ ! The higher the hair, the thinner face.

Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast is a volume and texture spray that contains patent-pending expandable, textured aero-spheres called ETAS. They’re lighter and bigger than industry standard ingredients, so they deliver big volume and texture on your hair without weighing it down or creating a sticky after-feel. Shake to activate the formula.

#5. Apply Blush Correctly 
The placement of your blush (as well as the shade) is paramount when it comes to slimming your face. Look for a product with a slight brown undertone to show off the contours on your face without going full contour—a red undertone can often round out your face. Instead of applying to the apples of your cheeks, brush the brush just under your cheekbones up to the middle of each ear.

Touted as up to 12 hours long-lasting wear, TARTE Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush lives up to its name! We were really skeptical until we tested it for ourselves by wearing it at 8am till 8pm at night. The blusher still looks strikingly fresh and almost untouched without oiliness or chalkiness. Let us know if you can get a blusher that works better than this!
