View Full Version : Achieving a Sharper Jawline?

08-07-2004, 02:34 PM
I think this question might be interesting to all the chubby cosplayers (girls and boys) so I decided to post it. Many times in photos I noticed that my face is almost joined with my neck (i.e. no jaw o_O), especially when there are flashes in the photos. I was wondering if you guys can give me some tips on making my jawline stand out more (and look less chubby by doing so)? What kind of product do I need? How do I make it look, well, natural? Thanks!

To help get a more "defined" jaw and chin you can try contouring with blush and bronzer.

Basically you want to gently highlight and reinforce where light naturally would hit and where shadows would be.

To get an idea of what I mean, check out the photo at http://www.kevynaucoin.com/ (where it says "makeup lesson"). The photo is a bit extreme but it illustrates the basic principles of contouring.
