How To Find Your Face Shape:

Features are proportional

Features are proportional like that of an Oval but you have more length in your forehead and chin

Wide Face, with a lot of ooomph to your cheekbones and cheeks

More oblong face, and you have a strong jawline and hairline

Same features as a person with the Rectangle Shape but shorter proportions

You have narrow forehead that widens down to a more pronounced jawbone

Your hairline and chin are the narrowest parts of your face, while your cheekbones are your widest, this gives the illusion of a diamond

Inverted Triangle:
Your widest features are the upper parts of the face that gradually tapper to a narrow chin area

Wide forehead, heart shaped hairline, cheeks widen at the temples and then thin out at the above the chin 

Knowing your face shape will help you figure out how to do your eyebrows, what makeup looks look best on you, and even what hairstyles look good on you!
