Once you know this you can adjust your look accordingly and make your face appear more oval which is the most desired face shape.

Firstly you need to find out what face shape you have. The easiest way to do this is to tie your hair back with no makeup on, look at your face in the mirror, if you still cant see what face shape you have it might help to draw the outline of your face in lipstick on the mirror.
