What Is Your Face Shape?

How to Find Your Face Shape

In the beauty world, your face shape can determine many things from your next haircut to your makeup tactics. Finding the correct measurement is a simple equation of proportions. While the most common shape is oval, others include round, square, triangle, diamond, and heart. Want to find out what category you fall into? Grab a mirror and follow these simple steps to discover your personal shape when you keep reading.

Face Shape Measurements Celebrity Example
Oval If the width of your forehead, cheekbones, and jaw are equal with a slightly rounded chin. Most face shapes are a little bit longer than they are wide. For example, draw an imaginary line just below the eyes (horizontally from ear to ear), and another line vertically (through the nose from the top of your forehead down to your chin). You should discover a cross shape with a ratio of about one (width) to one and a half (length). This length coincides with most face shapes. Beyoncé Knowles
Round If the width of your forehead, cheekbones, and jaw are equal. Round face shapes also have a slightly rounded jaw, but your cross has a one-to-one ratio. Ginnifer Goodwin
Square If the width of your forehead, cheekbones, and jaw are equal. If you have a strong jaw, then you could have a square face shape. Your chin may still come to a point, but the angle will be more gradual or flat. But keep in mind: diamond and triangle face shapes can also appear to have a square jaw. Angelina Jolie
Diamond You have a diamond face shape if your cheekbones are the widest area on your face. Zoe Saldana
Heart When the forehead is widest and the face gently tapers down to the chin, then your face falls into the heart shape category. This is also known as the inverted triangle shape. When the chin comes to a distinct point, you can file your face shape under the heart category. Reese Witherspoon
Triangle The jaw is the widest part of the face on most triangular (aka pear) face shapes. Kelly Osbourne
Oblong You have an oblong shape if your face has a longer lower half. Note: all face shapes (except for round, oblong's polar opposite) may fall into the oblong category, depending on your measurements. An oblong square face shape, for instance, is considered a rectangle Liv Tyler
