OMG! I have a PEAR face shape.
How is it I have made my way through life never hearing this term? I have heard of square, round, oval, and heart, but never "pear". MyFavoriteWeapon told me she believed I had a pear face shape, so I did a google image search and found this:
And here is the advice for pear shaped heads (via apply-sexy-makeup.com)...
"The pear shaped face is narrow at the temples,forehead and wider at your cheeks and jawline. If you have a pear shaped face, you should highlight your forehead to create the illusion of width and highlight the area under your eyes on top of your cheekbones and also the tip of your chin.You could contour the jawline and your cheeks to minimize the width too. Ps: Your hairstyle plays a part in balancing your face too. Bangs and hair brushed over your temples can add fullness to your upper half of the face."
While I am concerned about hilighting my forehead and making it any bigger than it already is, I do have to say that I will take to heart the advice for my hair style.
Thank you MyFavoriteWeapon! I am now an expert on my own head shape (hehehe!)!
