THE JAWLINE SLIM

POST + PHOTOGRAPHY BY AMY NADINE

Jawlines are always an interesting subject. Some of us have naturally gorgeous jawlines, some have a little double chin (no matter what we weigh) and some of our jawlines are starting to sag (thanks Gravity!). All of our jawlines can benefit from a little highlighting and contouring. I used to just contour jawlines until I learned that adding a highlight just above it makes the illusion more effective.

But this combines the two and adds a little V in the inside corner. Why? Oh just to make it more stylized and like an exotic little cat! It’s 100% wearable, I promise. And quite sexy. I exaggerated the inside corner a little on our model above but you can shorten it and still get the same effect. Here’s how: READ MORE…
