V Shape Face Makeup Tips for Singaporeans

Many of my Singaporean clients aspire to achieve the coveted V-shaped face, a beauty ideal popularized by Korean celebrities. In this article, I’ll share my professional insights and makeup tips to help you enhance your facial features and create the illusion of a slimmer, more contoured visage.

V-shaped faces are characterized by a narrow chin, high cheekbones, and a slender jawline. While some individuals are naturally blessed with this facial structure, others can achieve a similar look through strategic makeup application. By utilizing contouring, highlighting, and other techniques, you can subtly reshape and redefine your facial features, creating a more sculpted and youthful appearance.

1. Contouring and Highlighting

I love helping clients achieve that coveted V-shaped face. To achieve a flawless makeup look, mastering strategic contouring and highlighting is essential. First, I use a matte bronzer or contouring powder to shade areas I want to recede. I apply it in a “3” shape – starting at the sides of the forehead, sweeping along the cheekbones, and ending along the jawline. This creates subtle shadows that slim the face.

Next, I highlight the high points using a luminous powder or cream highlighter. I focus on the center of the forehead, tops of cheekbones, tip of the nose, and cupid’s bow. These bright spots bring forward the features and create a radiant glow.

With some blending, the contrasting shades sculpt and define for a beautifully chiselled, V-shaped look. It’s an easy technique that delivers gorgeous results.

2. Nose Contouring

Nose contouring is a popular technique. It can give you a slimmer, more defined nose shape. This contributes to a V-shaped face that many find attractive.

To contour your nose, use a matte bronzer or contour powder. Apply it on the sides of your nose to create the illusion of a narrower bridge. Then, use a lighter highlighter shade in the centre of your nose and the tip. This makes your nose appear more lifted.

I recommend trying the Fenty Beauty Match Stix Contour Skinstick. It’s a cream-based contour product that blends seamlessly. For highlighting, the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector is a cult favourite.

3. Lip Contouring

I often get asked how to make lips look fuller and more defined. My go-to trick is lip contouring. First, choose a lip liner close to your natural lip shade or one shade darker. Carefully line just outside your natural lip line, focusing on the cupid’s bow area. Extending the lines slightly past your lip borders creates the illusion of a plumper pout.

For an extra oomph, I like overlining the centre of my lips too. This really accentuates and defines the cupid’s bow shape. Just take it slow and use short, precise strokes. A lip brush helps get crisp, clean lines.

After lining, I’ll go over the lips with a matching lipstick or gloss. The liner provides a strong foundation, enhancing the shape, while the lipstick brings depth and dimension to the lips. With a little practice, lip contouring is an easy way to enhance your natural lip shape.

As consumers increasingly recognize the transformative power of eyebrow shaping as a facial enhancement option, the demand for expert brow grooming has reached new heights.

4. Brow Shaping

As an eyebrow artist, I know well-shaped brows are key to framing the face. I recommend creating a subtle arch to lift and enhance facial features. Fill in sparse areas with a brow pencil or powder, using light, hair-like strokes. Avoid overly thick or straight brows – they can make the face look wider. A softly arched shape helps accentuate that coveted V-shape.

My clients often ask how to achieve the perfect brow shape. I guide them through mapping their brows to find the ideal start, arch and end points. Then we carefully tweeze, wax or thread to sculpt the desired look. A little powder or pencil fills any gaps for fuller, face-framing arches.

Brow shaping is an art. With the right technique, you can enhance eyes, soften angles and take years off. But go easy – overdone brows can look harsh and aging. My goal is a natural, flattering shape that complements each client’s unique features.

5. Hairstyling

I often get customers asking for hairstyles to enhance their V-shaped face. My go-to recommendations are side-swept bangs or a deep side part. These styles create an illusion of a slimmer face by drawing attention inwards.

Sleek, straight hair is another great option. The smooth lines complement the angular jawline of a V-shape. For those who prefer texture, loose waves that frame the face can also accentuate the V-shape beautifully.

Whichever style you choose, I always advise using a light-hold product. This allows you to restyle throughout the day while preventing flyaways. With the right cut and styling, your V-shaped face will truly shine.

if you have more severe sagging skin, HIFU may be a better choice. If you are concerned about side effects, RF Vlift may be a better option.

RF Vlift by Wellaholic for Some Serious V-Shaping

As the Aesthetic Director at Wellaholic, I often get asked about treatments for facial contouring and V-shaping. One option I recommend is our RF Vlift treatment.

RF Vlift uses radio frequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin. This stimulates collagen production for skin tightening and lifting effects. The treatment can improve jowls, nasolabial folds, and create a more defined V-shaped jawline.

Many of my clients see great results after a course of RF Vlift sessions. The treatment is non-invasive with minimal downtime. I find it’s an excellent choice for those looking to enhance their facial contours without surgery.

I hope this gives you a better understanding of RF Vlift. Feel free to book a consultation if you’d like to learn more about this or other aesthetic treatments we offer.
