Makeup Hacks To Hide A Double Chin

Many consider a double chin not just a flaw but a mark on their face that ruins their perfect pictures and causes insecurities. While weight can be a factor leading to the formation of a double chin, it can also be rooted in genetics or face shape. However, why should you beat yourself up and spend a ton of money on surgery when you can just control it? Makeup offers a rather cheaper substitute for surgeries. While it is, admittedly, only a short-term fix, cosmetics can give you the flawless, glam look that gives you confidence in yourself. Here are a few ways to manage your features like a pro:

The lipstick shade
