Different Face Shapes

Face Shape is the most important consideration in getting the perfect makeup look.

 1. Round Face Shape

Round faces have soft, curved lines without distinct angles. There are no sharp edges on the face.

To create the illusion of more defined cheekbones and jawlines, focus on contouring and highlighting. Use a contour shade or bronzer to gently sculpt the hollows of your cheeks, temples, and jawline. Apply a highlighter to the high points of your face, such as the cheekbones and brow bones, to add dimension. 


We at Mars provide you with the best contouring palette with 24 shades and a demi-matte finish. The Agory Contour Palette comes with an extremely blendable formula and highlights your facial features.


2. Oval Face Shape

The Oval face is the ideal one. You can experiment with various makeup looks and techniques. To enhance your natural symmetry, focus on defining your eyebrows and eyes.

You can define your eyebrows using the Mars Eyebrow Powder Palette which comes in 4 different shades, suitable for all skin tones. Consider using different eyeshadow techniques, such as a smoky eye or a cat-eye, to add depth and drama.


3. Square Face Shape

Square faces are characterized by strong, angular features and a prominent jawline. Makeup for square faces is intended to smooth out the angles and give the face a more rounded or oval appearance.

To reduce their prominence, pay special attention to contouring the jawline and forehead. To blend along the jawline, temples, and hairline, use a warm-toned bronzer or contour shade. A pink or peachy blush will work best for this face shape. Mars presents a Fantasy Face Blush Palette that has it all for creating your dynamic looks.


4. Heart Face Shape

Heart-shaped faces have a wider forehead and a narrower chin, resembling an inverted triangle. The aim is to balance the width of the forehead and create the illusion of a wider jawline to turn it into an oval shape. To achieve this, focus on contouring and highlighting techniques.

Heart Face Shape

Apply a contour shade or bronzer to the temples and along the hairline to reduce the prominence of the forehead. Use a highlighter on the center of the forehead and down the bridge of the nose to draw attention away from the chin. Opt for lipsticks or lip glosses in nude shades to create fuller-looking lips. 

Mars provides you with the best nude shades to make your lips look fuller and more flawless. Checkout these amazing shades and try them to get the best experience!


5. Diamond Face Shape

Diamond faces are characterized by wide cheekbones and a narrower forehead and jawline. The key to makeup for diamond faces is to minimize the width of the cheekbones and add fullness to the forehead and chin.

Diamond Face Shape

Contour the cheekbones with a shade slightly darker than your skin tone to get the best effect. Apply a highlighter on to the center of the forehead and the chin to add dimension. MARS Wonder Highlighter helps to add that extra glow we all want! Focus on defining the eyes with eyeshadow and mascara.


Understanding your face shape is essential for creating a well-balanced and flattering makeup look. By tailoring your makeup techniques to suit your unique facial structure, you can enhance your best features and create a harmonious overall appearance. 

Remember to experiment, have fun, and adapt these makeup tips to your personal style and preferences. With the right knowledge and techniques, you can confidently embrace your makeup and flaunt it as much as you can.
