If you have a wide face, you can make it appear less wide by applying a rosy, creamy blush only on the apples of both your cheeks. However, you should be careful to not apply it too close to your nose or extend the color out past your ears as this will make your face appear even wider.

Hairstyles and colors can be used to create the illusion of a thinner face. Styles that are longer and add length to the face will help. Opt for a hair length that lays somewhere between the chin and shoulders, but no shorter than the chin. Adding lowlights or highlights can help to frame your face. These are especially flattering and draw the attention to your facial features.
Use a brow gel to stimulate growth in sparse eye brows. Whether you have naturally sparse brows or got a little overzealous with the tweezers, a brow gel can help grow hair back. Look for one that has added protein. In the meantime, use fillers to shade the thin areas.
To make red lipstick last longer, apply powder and lip liner to your lips before applying the lipstick. First, powder your lips with your usual face powder.

A beauty tip for you: Lengthening mascara that is waterproof will make your lashes appear longer and won’t run. Many mascaras claim to be able to increase the volume and curl of your lashes. These mascaras can be very heavy. They end up weighing down your lashes. Try a moisturizing formula instead, which will not only make your lashes look fuller while you wear it, but will also help them grow. If you want voluminous lashes that curl upwards, then you want a lengthening formula.
If you have time for nothing else, focus on your eyebrows. Sometimes you might not have time to do your makeup. This is fine. However, if you still want to pull a look together, try focusing on your eyebrows. Shape them, brush them and be sure to fill them in. Eyebrows are often the focus of your face.
When you want the added beauty of curled lashes, and do not want to hassle with getting them to set, try this: before you use the curler, apply a thin coat of mascara to your lashes. Then while your lashes are still wet, use the curler. Doing this will allow you to curl your eyelashes faster and easier.
