Finding the Right Bangs for Your Face Shape

Bangs can give you a totally new look. They can make your eyes stand out, add proportion to your face, and give you a mini-makeover in a matter of minutes. However, all bangs are not created equal. Wearing the perfect bang is a matter of knowing your face shape—and a few makeup tricks won’t hurt either ;).

If your face is shaped like Nicole Richie’s, you’ll look best with a bang that is longer in the middle and tapered on the sides. This slightly-round bang shape will compliment your “square” countenance well, and even make your cheekbones a little higher. A dab of pink blush will bring more attention to your cheeks, and slightly heavy eyeliner will bring balance to your new look.
