Having a double chin can be one big embarrassment, right? If you feel your levels of self-esteem and self-confidence plummeting due to your double chin, then it’s high time you did something about it. Because the longer you tend to ignore the issue, the more you will get upset and embarrassed.

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

1. Dress Smart:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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.
