A double chin is an extra layer of fat or loose skin beneath the chin. Although overweight or elderly people are most likely to have double chins, genetics can also cause them. You don’t have to go on a crash diet or get cosmetic surgery to get rid of a double chin.
Keep Your Neckline Free of Hair. You can keep the neckline free of hair by wearing your hair up. This can help giving an illusion of slimmer and longer neck and draw the attention from your double chin. The other alternative is to cut the hair short in chunky layers that can take the attention away from the chin.
Keep your lips as neutral as possible. A bright lip color will draw attention to the lower part of your face and make your double chin more noticeable. Apply a moisturizing lip balm to get rid of any dry skin on your lips. Smooth on a lip gloss or lipstick that resembles your natural lip color. If you want to give your lips some definition, choose a lip liner that matches your lip color. Outline and fill in your lips with the pencil, then apply your lip color.
Highlight Your Eyes. Your eyes can also play a very important role in helping to draw attention away from your double chin. You can start by applying a neutral shade of eye shadow to your brow bone and the inner corner of your eye.Then apply a darker shade to the crease of the eye followed by a really dark shade of shadow along the outer corner of the eye. Smudge and extend this shadow a little outside the eye in order to create a dramatic effect. Add even more drama to the look by making use of black eyeliner and a few coats of black mascara.
