Don’t worry if you think that you do not have the perfect jawline you wish you did. To make a double chin less visible, use a matte bronzer or brown blush to contour.

Follow it with an application of foundation that is one shade lighter than your skin tone to make the jaw appear heart shaped. Thereafter, apply a dark contour blush along the entire jawline.
Covering Chubby Cheeks
Begin with cleaning and moisturising the face. Top it with a concealer that you normally use. Apply foundation to your face as is needed. When the foundation dries, dab a matching face powder lightly. Use an eye shadow, mascara and lip gloss as needed so that other features of the face draw more attention.
Hiding Fine Lines and Wrinkles
If you are one of those women who have fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes, you can cover it with make-up. Start with a silicone-based eye serum that will gel with the concealer and prevent it from slipping. It is advised that you use a lighter and darker shade that makes hard lines soft and soft lines hard.

Alternatively, warm colours may also be used to brighte dull skin. When using warm colours, remember to use a foundation that is a shade lighter than your skin tone.
