1. Sculpt your brows right

Eyebrows can play a significant role in making your forehead look less wide. Hence, grooming them well is imperative.

Be sure to fill your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil or powder, in a shade that matches your brow colour. This will make them look fuller and open up the eye area. Also, change your eyebrow shape into an angular one and brush them to minimize the visual distance between your eyebrows and hairline.

2. Add drama to your eyes

Your eye makeup can instantly make a difference draw attention away from your forehead. Use bold and vibrant eyeshadows to accentuate your eyes, and sweep deeper hues into the creases. Finally, highlight the brow bone in neutral shades, and finish with your favourite eyeliner, kohl, and mascara.

3. Balance with blush

The science behind this trick is that when you apply colour on your cheeks, it draws attention to the center of your face.

So, select a bright peach or rose-toned blush and swipe it on your cheekbones in an upward direction. This will help lift your face and reduce the size of your forehead.

4. Play with your lips

If your face is all neutral, your large forehead is bound to stand out. Therefore, wearing a bright red or berry lip will divert attention to your lips.

5. Use a darker foundation

For a more chiseled look, draw a solid line on the circumference of your forehead using a foundation that is darker than your natural skin tone. Blend it till the contour looks seamless and natural, with no harsh lines. When done correctly, the outcome of this trick will be a sharper and smaller forehead.

6. Highlight to create an optical illusion

Simply take some bronzer (that's a shade darker than your foundation) on a brush and blend it into your temples and around the hairline. Next, apply some shimmery highlighter to the center of your forehead. This technique will help create a stronger bone structure and downplay the width of your forehead.

And there they are! Six sure shot ways to hide your big forehead, and look and feel your best!
