There are many ways to discover who you are (like your birthday or your sleep position), but did you know that the shape of your face affects your personality and how people judge you?

Defining the shape of your face

It can be difficult to know what face shape you have but here are some ways to find out:

  1. Outline your reflection in a mirror with lipstick

  2. What is the widest part of your face? (forehead, cheekbones, jaw, or everything is equal)

  3. What is your jaw shape? (round, pointy, square)

  4. How long is your face? (short, average, long)

  5. Do you have a widows peak? (yes, no)
