DIAMOND FACE SHAPE
Singer Taylor Swift, 25, and actress Ashley Greene, 28, have this common face shape. It is characterised by being pointed towards the forehead and chin but wide in the middle.
Diamond faced people likes to take control and wants things a certain way. They’re also very detail-oriented and because of that they produce quality work. Someone with a diamond-shaped face ‘communicates well’ and is ‘precise’ with their words. However, this person could be ‘sharp’ if crossed the wrong way.
BEAUTY COMPLEMENTS: A diamond shaped face can be softened with gentle highlights across the cheeks to create the illusion of higher cheekbones. Consider cheek sculpting using structural natural fillers for the cheeks, that are specially designed to give the cheeks a lift without giving the appearance of a pillow face.
OVAL FACE SHAPE
People with oval faces are practical, methodical and overachievers in their careers.
This appears true for American hit maker Beyonce, 34, whose face is longer than wide and she has a jaw that is narrower than her cheekbones. Face readers say people with oval face shapes are also compassionate: The type of person who always knows all the right things to say, so they can make someone feel welcome and comfortable.
BEAUTY COMPLEMENTS: A oval shaped face will look even better when it is balanced with a sharp and defined nose. Consider nasal fillers to give your central beauty feature a boost. Nose threadlifts are also an elegant way to add definition without creating width to the nose.

SQUARE FACE SHAPE
Men and women with square faces tend to possess a sharp wit and analytical mind.
American actresses Mena Suvari, 36, and Sandra Bullock, 51, have this shape, which is characterised by a wide hair and jaw line. Face readers believe that it typically refers to someone who is really gung-ho and into taking on huge projects because they have so much stamina.
