Now stretch the skin of your forehead to the sides just slightly and stick your tongue out as far as you can.
Stay in this position, inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth, for a couple of seconds and let go.
Continue to do so for about 30 seconds and your face is ready for the ultimate transformation!

Why use makeup to contour a perfect jawline, when you can easily sculpt one?
It only takes one simple exercise that should be repeated every single day!
First off, you should place the palms of your hands on both sides of your chin just along your jawline.
Then, slightly push your chin upward, creating resistance in your neck muscles.

Hold this position for a couple of seconds and release.
Doing this at least 10-15 times a day will make your jawline way more defined.

Hold it for 2-3 seconds and let go.
This is a complex exercise, so make sure to do it about 10 times for each side of your face.

Now before you try the whole routine out, there are a couple more things you need to

This tones your muscles and reduce puffiness from the night before.
So wash your face as always, apply your moisturizer, and go on with your face exercises!

If you perform the exercises too harsh, you can get bruises, so no additional force.
• And finally, patience. This face yoga can work wonders but it’s completely natural which means that it won’t be quick.
