Diamonds are a girl's best friend at least that’s what they say. Taking this in account I thought I will show you to accentuate the features of a diamond shaped face by contouring and highlighting the correct areas of the face. I hope everyone can learn something even if you are an advanced makeup applicator or a novice at applying makeup.


The diamond shaped face is very angled at both temples, longer nose, an angles chin that is very prominent.


Contouring is mainly to hide, slim or lengthen the facial structure through the use of makeup. Highlighting on the other hand is to draw attention, improve a flat area on the face (nose) and enhance the overall features of the face. It's like giving a three dimension aspect to your face.

For a diamond shaped there isn't much correction needed but you can contour the hollows of the cheek to give more definition to the face.

Highlight needs to be added to the center of the forehead and chin. This will make the face seem less pointed and balance the features.

The main aim of contour and highlight is to ensure your face is symmetrical. Since most of aren't privileged with perfect features I sure am not lucky with perfect features, we can artificially achieve these with makeup making them look as if we naturally have these features.

I hope you long shaped girls learned something new. Let me know how you contour or highlight. I would love to know if you follow these steps of if you follow something else. Either way let me know.
