Square, round or triangular jaw

It has been proven with age that your jaws keep growing in size and as a result most women end up with a square jaw line, which tends to make them look older than they actually are. Your face could be any shape, but if your jaw is too square, too round or rectangular then it is clearly not proportionate to your overall face, needing correction. For women with such prominent jaw lines, muting their jaw line is a must.
This can be best achieved by applying a darker shade of foundation on the most prominent part of your jaw line. This could be on the sides of your face or near the chin or even near the ears. The idea is to pull back what is jutting out, and a dark shade of foundation can help you create the illusion of a shadow falling on that particular part, muting its visibility to a larger extent and making it appear slightly oval.
Corrective Contouring on a Square Jaw Line
The main purpose is to soften your client’s jaw line by hiding all the prominent parts.
Step 1: Take your 127 Blush Brush and dip it into a darker foundation/blush/powder color. Apply this color at the sides of your client’s face (jaw line) where the jaw is the most prominent. This will push the sharp accentuated corners inwards, softening her jaw line.
Corrective Contouring on a Round Jaw Line
The main purpose is to make the client’s jaw line appear more oval and not so round in shape.
Step 1: Take your 127 Blush Brush and dip it into a darker shade of bronzer/blush/foundation. When you are using a darker shade of foundation, then it is best to apply it with your 125 Foundation Brush. Apply this color at the sides of your client’s jaw line, starting just next to her chin and applying it to the outside corner of her jaw.
Step 2: Wipe the brush with a clean tissue.
Step 3: Finally, take the same brush and apply a lighter foundation/powder/eye shadow color onto her chin. This will create all the right angles and make her face appear less round.
Corrective Contouring on a Triangular Jaw Line
The main purpose is to bring the client’s jaw line in balance with the rest of her face, by softening the chin area and making it appear slightly oval.

Step 1: Take your 127 Blush Brush and dip it into a darker shade of powder/foundation/blush.Apply this color onto her chin area. By doing this, you will “push” or hide your client’s prominent chin.
Step 2: Wipe the brush with a clean tissue.
Step 3: Then take the same brush and apply a highlighting color on the sides of her jaw line. This will bring these areas forward by accentuating them.
