Try these makeup tips if you have an oval-shaped face.
Keep a naturally arched brow.
To emphasize your pretty eyes, stick with the natural arch of your brows -- nothing too dramatic or too flat.
Emphasize your lips or eyes, but not both.
When you are going out for the evening, play up the makeup on your lips or your eyes -- but not both. For example, with a smoky eye look, keep your lip color neutral. With a glossy red lip, stick with brown eyeshadow, one coat of mascara and a natural liner.
Stick to your normal foundation.
"This is considered the perfect shape, so unless your face shape bothers you, stick to your normal foundation," says New York makeup artist Jessica Lauren. "If you want make your face appear a little bit shorter and thinner, you can apply foundation one shade darker than the natural skin color. Apply blush under the apple of the cheekbone."
