Heart-shaped face? You're in good company, and here are 6 makeup tips you should know

Many of Hollywood's leading ladies share something in common: the shape of their faces. Take a look at photos of Reese Witherspoon, Zooey Deschanel, Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson, and Jennifer Love Hewitt, and you'll find lots of inspiration for dealing with any angles you dislike.
As beautiful as these shapes are, they can look unbalanced or angular, and makeup can certainly exacerbate that problem. Luckily, you can soften your edges, contour and reduce the appearance of your forehead, and bring much wanted attention to the center of your face all with a little makeup.

1. Contour your forehead to make it less boxy
Heart-shaped faces tend to be broadest across the forehead. Since your chin is more prominent, you can create the illusion of a more curved forehead by contouring at the temples along the hair line.
2. Bring the light to the center
Highlighting the middle of your forehead, the center of your chin, and the area below your eyes will draw all the attention to the middle of your face.

3. Avoid "boy" brows
Since your forehead is the widest part of your face, make sure your brows have a slightly rounded arch to them. If they're too straight, they'll emphasize the width and undermine the curves created when contouring.
4. Create a more rounded cheek with blush
Gals with heart shaped faces also tend to have strong cheekbones (lucky you!). When applying your blush, though, be careful not to create an angular stripe of color. Focusing on the apples of your cheeks will emphasize their curves instead.
5. Subtle eye shadow is best
While bold, intense eye looks may be popular, they can emphasize the edges of your face. Sticking with soft, well-blended tones creates drama without looking harsh.

6. Let your lips do the talking
There are absolutely no rules when it comes to lip colors, so let your instincts guide you here. Just be sure to blend and diffuse the color, then add a touch of gloss to the center to attract attention.
