Can you believe all three of these are
the same face? Today I’ll show you some makeup do’s and don’ts for the oval shaped face. I’m Ern Westmore. As I’ve shown you before There are five basic shapes of face. The Oval The Round the Square, oblong and the triangle. Determined by the breadth of your forehead and jawline There’s a separate set of basic hair and makeup rules for each one of the five face shapes. If you’re to look your best It’s most important that you follow the rules for your face type only ! If your forehead is slightly broader than your jawline Then you’re an oval. So let’s take a look at the oval do’s and don’ts. Here’s Miss oval without any makeup or hair-styling whatsoever. Even an ideal oval face is drab and
uninteresting without makeup. Here is Miss Oval after applying all
of the correct basic rules for makeup for her face shape. I’ll show you how she can destroy her natural beauty with haphazard incorrect makeup. This kind of makeup is actually worse than none. Don’t make your eyebrows up too thin, too
square or too heavy. And don’t start your brows too far back from your nose. Make them up this way Keep a soft natural curve to your brow-line. And use a chisel sharp brow pencil to affect these fine brow lines. Now let me show you the contrast in these eyes, with and without makeup. Remember to apply
your mascara with upward outward strokes This is the wrong makeup for her lips.
Don’t make your lips up too heavy Too dark .. or with this bee stung effect you see here. Try making them up like this With a natural soft curve Remember your upper and lower lips should be about the same fullness. These results were
achieved with a lip brush Rouge and cheek rouge properly applied
works wonders Here’s the don’ts for cheek rouge Don’t apply in a dab or circle, and don’t apply too close to your nose. Here’s the do’s for the oval Apply in the center of your cheek and blend it
lightly up under your eye and over your cheek bones, out toward your temples. I’ll deal later with each one of these features individually. There’s no reason why Miss Oval should look like this When she can look like this By simply following the makeup rules for her shaped face that enhance her natural beauty Proving, there isn’t a woman in the world
who can’t become more beautiful


  1. Me watching this

    Me with glitter eyeliner bright eyeshadow dramatic eyebrows bright lipstick and fake eyelashes 😂

  2. Doesn't anyone like both? The only thing I disagree with are the tootsie roll brows, and that goes for any decade 😝

  3. The "do" side makes her look more youthful and innocent and the "don't" side is cute too but in a more "bad girl" motorcycle chick type of way. Lol

  4. That’s funny, I have the "oval" type of face and I do the exact same kind of makeup ( except for the brows, they’re not 10 miles apart ) And I started doing it based on today’s makeup tutorials

  5. Today's makeup is literally an abomination according to this video (and in many cases according to me). I have just recently started experimenting with makeup and I will be sticking to classic looks like this. Most of today's makeup wearers look no different from drag queens.
