Hairstyles that make fat faces look slimmer
A combination of proper makeup and appropriate hairstyle can make your face look slimmer and attractive.
- Women having chubby faces and double chin should avoid having short hair and same length hairstyle. Asymmetrical haircuts make face look thinner.
- Layered hair that falls around your face makes face appear thinner. This type of hairstyle aptly covers chubby cheek areas. Layers of hair that fall between the chin and neck or between the chin and shoulder, look ideal on a fat face since this kind of hairstyle hides double chin and puffy cheeks. Hair should always fall below your chin.
- Long hair with layered hairstyle makes round and fat faces look thinner. If this hairstyle is teamed with side swept, long bangs then face looks quite slimmer.
- Side bangs and layers add volume on the top of one’s head thus making the face appear longer and slimmer. Layers and side bangs are ideal for fat round faces.
- Straight bangs totally covering the forehead should be avoided by girls with chubby faces. Girls with fat faces should get their bangs cut at an angular manner.
- Too short bangs on the center of the forehead must be avoided by girls with chubby faces. Curly haired girls should avoid having bangs. For ideal bangs wavy or straight hair is necessary.
- Side swept bangs that fall diagonally up till your eyebrows are perfect for making fat face appear slimmer.
- Avoid center-parting in your hair. Centre parting makes face appear rounder and puffy. Side parting looks nice and gives a slim look to your face, if you have a fat face.
- Hairstyle that adds height on the crown of the head should be preferred by women with round, puffy faces since this type of hairstyle makes the face appear slimmer and longer. Pouf hairstyles make round fat faces appear more oval and attractive.
Makeup tips for wide fatty faces
If you follow these easy, do-it-yourself makeup tips, your face can appear quite slimmer instantly.
- With a blush brush, apply shimmer powder or highlighter powder on the top of your cheekbones. With the brush spread and blend the highlighter powder well upon the cheeks for a natural look.
- Cheekbones appear higher and sculpted when highlighter is applied upon them. The highlighter powder should not be too shimmery or too sparkling.
- Using your finger also apply some highlighter powder upon the bones underneath your eyebrows.
- Never apply blush powder on the apples of your cheeks if you have a round, fat face.
- Use lots of mascara, black eyeliner and darker eye shadows to make the eyes more prominent. When the eyes look more prominent, they divert the attention of the viewers away from your round/fat face structure.

Food that reduce fat in your face and jaws
Reduce calorie intake if you want to lose face and neck weight.
- Low calorie diet is a must for people who want to lose weight from face and body.
- Your meals should have low levels of sodium (salts). High levels of sodium in meals can increase risks of facial puffiness.
- Reduce your consumption of processed food, fast food and table salt. Limit consumption of fats and carbohydrates. Also reduce your intake of refined sugar.
- Dehydration is one of the major causes of facial puffiness. When water consumption is insufficient, our body and face tend to retain water, and as a result our face swells up. So, to reduce facial puffiness, we should consume eight glasses of water every day.
- Stop drinking alcohol and coffee if want to lose face weight. Consume green tea daily to become slimmer.
- Green tea, lettuce, cauliflower, cabbage, strawberries, cinnamon, chicken, fish, apples etc. help to reduce weight from face and body.
