How to Make My Face & Neck Look Thinner

A round or wide face and neck can make a woman feel self-conscious or unattractive. These characteristics can be played down with a combination of beauty tricks. Make-up, clothes, jewellery and hairstyles are all used to detract attention from the width of the face, helping it appear slimmer. These tricks can be used individually but are most effective if used together.

  1. 1

    Choose haircuts that thin and lengthen your face and neck. Cut hair so that it falls one inch above the shoulder to create the appearance of a longer neck. Make sure the widest part of the hair is not at the widest part of the face. A long bob or long, layered cut works well.

  2. 2

    Wear clothes with a V-neckline. This neckline makes the neck look longer and thinner. Accentuate the v-neckline with long necklaces. Never wear short necklaces; they will cut off the neck and make it appear shorter and fatter.

  3. 3

    Apply a light foundation on the middle of your neck and a darker shade on the sides to make it appear longer. Apply a cool contour powder from behind your ears to under your chin to make a double chin appear smaller. Blend the make-up in well so it looks natural with the rest of your make-up. Accent cheekbones by applying a sheer powder on the top of the bone, a darker shade under the bone and a rose colour on the apples of the cheek.
