How To Hide Double Chin With Makeup – Top 5 Tricks:

1. Dress Smart:

Divert attention away from double chin with an amazing outfit


You may wonder how your dress can decide what your chin looks like. But the fact is, what you wear can make a lot of difference. In this case, avoid drawing attention towards your double chin. Let people notice your neckline, collarbones or even your throat. How do you do that? By wearing scoop neck tops.

A scoop neck top gives a wide view of your throat and collarbones. Plus, it is stylish and can be teamed up with a formal pair of trouser.

So, the mantra here is to show off!

2. Hairstyle Matters:

Hide double chin with a high ponytail


Wear a hairdo that doesn’t fall on your neck, close to your chin or rather double chin. The volume of hair hanging down your neck accentuates the visibility of the double chin. One suggested hair style is the high ponytail. Or better yet, go for a bob cut. You won’t have to think of a new tricky hairstyle every morning.

One hair style which is a big no-no is hair ending with curls under your chin. Your double chin suddenly starts to look like triple chin.

3. Get Cheeky:

Highlight cheeks and eyes to hide double chin


No, don’t take the meaning literally. All we mean to say is, wear your makeup such that it highlights your cheeks and eyes. For eyes, you could use a subtle eyeshade. For cheeks, use a blusher upwards to enhance the area prominently.

With cheeks and eyes drawing attention, it gets easier to divert the focus from double chin.

4. Lips Do Lie:

Focus attention on lips with dark red lipstick to hide double chin


Your lip color can make a huge amount of difference in your appearance. But here, what’s important is which lip color you wear. To hide your double chin, use bold lip colors like dark red, dark brown, etc. You can also go for shiny lip gloss. That attracts attention to your face, and not to the portion below your face.

5. Define Your Jaw Line:

Define jawline with makeup to hide double chin


Just as you have enhanced your facial features like the cheeks, eyes and lips, another cheat trick is to try and clearly define your jaw line. How? Use a bronzer. Brush it across the jaw line. If you are of wheatish or dark complexion, go for gold-toned bronzer. If you are of fair complexion, opt for rose-toned bronzer.

If you highlight your jaw line, it takes away the attention from your double chin.

So, now that you know some cheat tricks to hide your double chin, you can comfortably move around in the office, chill at a party and not get teased by your friends! But remember, the problem of a double chin arises when fat accumulates in your neck. Why does it happen? Because there is no physical activity happening in that particular area. The cheat tricks are only to hide your double chin. For a long term solution, you must either practice yoga or consult a doctor.

The most brilliant way to learn how to hide a double chin with makeup would be to highlight other features of your face, so the attention is focused on them and not your double chin. Apart from this, you can also opt for all the other tips and tricks that this article offers. From wearing a high-neck top to defining the jawline, your options are endless. Also, we believe it is important to wear your confidence first. Your confidence has the most incredible power to help you steal the show and be the showstopper wherever you go.
