Contouring has been a makeup secret for a long time but became a huge hit this past decade due to influencers like Kim Kardashian. Although it takes practice through YouTube tutorials and a lot of product with contour kits, once mastered, it's a quick and easy way to make your face slimmer.
This technique by highlights the points on your face where light hits the most and darkens those areas that are usually covered with shadows. After blending everything out, it can increase facial definition as well as sharpen your jawline.
2. All sharped up
Now this is what some people do for a faster and long term result.
Originally developed to reconstruct damaged bone structure of victims of mechanical accidents, facial restructuring has now gained a lot of popularity in Asian countries. Now differentiated as cosmetic surgery, it takes proper medical evaluation and psychological preparation before each patient makes the decision to proceed with the surgery.
With this procedure, the surgeon will have to access your jaw via an incision made inside the mouth so there will be no external scars, and physically shave it into a smaller size. This method can also be done on the cheekbones, forehead and nose.
3. Clean Slate
For starters, try to eliminate processed food, salt and sugar from your diet and too much of these are bad for your health as well. As cliché as it sounds, you are what you eat and what you eat can (and will) show up on your face. One of the main culprits behind the swelling in the face is water retention.
Face shape mainly develops from the shape of your bone structure. It's a bit to change that, but you can change the fat percentage on your face, and create illusions of a more defined V-shape.
4. Face-Up Rollers
These may look funny but some people swear by them. Even on some Korean dramas, you can see characters using these facial massagers to avoid sagging skin as your nasolabial becomes more prominent and jawline loose definition due to aging and gravity.
They are extremely affordable and can be found on stores such as Daiso, Miniso and such. This technique does a massaging action that will help with microcirculation and lymphatic drainage, which will generally visibly decrease any puffiness, water retention or bloating in the face for a while.
5. Ultimate V-Shape
Now, on to the best part. If you're not ready for a permanent result from cosmetic surgery or getting tired of quick-fix results from contouring and facial massagers, you might want to try V-Shape Contour by Skin Buffet.
