Knowing your face shape can come in handy, especially when deciding on a new haircut or which bangs hairstyle works best for you. But discovering whether you have an oval or diamond-shaped face isn't always as easy as looking in the mirror.
You'll need a camera or phone, a sheet of paper, printer and permanent marker. Take a photo of yourself with your hair pulled back. Then, draw dots around the outer corners of your printed picture. Connect all the dots until you have a clearer image of your face shape.
There are obvious distinctions between each face shape, as Birchbox points out. For example, individuals with oval faces tend to have curvier jawlines that are slightly narrower than their foreheads. Meanwhile, those with heart-shaped faces may have a widow's peak, and possess foreheads that are wider than the jawline.
