Arghh I hate the moon face. I think you would be hard pressed to find a woman who is not vain about
the dang moon face, most men too I'd bet. There are a few contouring makeup tricks that can make it a little bit better. I do mean a little, but vanity being what it is, I'll take what I can get. It involves using darker makeup under your cheekbones (or where they used to be
) for contour and the same under your jawbone, maybe along the side of your nose. Then lighter shades on top of your cheekbones. Also, play up your eyes with makeup so that people have someplace to look. Go to a good department store and speak to one of the makeup ladies. Tell them what you need. Ask to have them show you how to make your face appear slimmer. You don't have to buy the products. You can get the same type of things at Walmart or the drug store. Just don't go at the peak time. Oh, and don't wear high neck lines, you end up looking like a turtle!
I was on high doses for a few years and learned a few tricks. I didn't do this everyday, but when I knew I was going someplace special I pulled out every trick I could.
