We all know that feeling of getting the same exact haircut as your style or beauty icon and then looking at the mirror and seeing that the hairstyle does not look good on you. We've all been through that one haircut we regretted, and it's mostly because it doesn't fit our face's shape. 

For a quick Hairstyle 101, here are a few tips to know which type of hairstyles would work best on different face shapes!

For round faces, asymmetrical cuts, long layers, and piecey bobs work best.  A mix of lengths makes the face slimmer, especially if it's a deep side part paired with side-swept bangs. It's also safer to work with lengths a few inches past your shoulders to create the illusion of an angular jaw. However, if you really want a short haircut, stick to a soft, layered cut or a defined pixie cut that emphasizes your eyes and cheekbones.

Oval face shapes look longer than usual so cutting straight bangs across the brow line can break up the length by creating the illusion of width. You can also go for a bob with side bangs. Your most adventurous haircut option is an edgy pixie similar to what Rihanna had a few years ago.

Square faces look more angular and strong so you need to soften it out with a tapered haircut like a thinned-out bob or a tousled shag. You can also wear your hair really straight and long so it falls softly against the square angles, drawing attention away from the jawline.

Heart-shaped faces seem to have more freedom in wearing mid-length and short haircuts, most especially the bob as it hits right below the jaw to fill in the area hollow area around the chin. You can also draw attention away from triangular shape, by wearing long, layered waves. It does the same "filling in" but it looks fuller and longer.

“Awaken creativity to reveal undiscovered beauty,” that is what International artistic director uchiide says regarding Shu Uemura's take on street art and beauty--a street art inspired collaboration for their newest Vision of Beauty Collection Vol. 2. Haute Street

The collection is sparked by street art as a premium means of visual expression and poetry in the modern city--meant to lead you down a liberating road of feminine beauty with inspired daily make-up, artistic palettes of colour, and perfectly calculated brush strokes. 

Our personal favourite from the bunch is the tint in gelato. It comes in a paint-tube-inspired packaging so you can paint the town in 4 shades of Urban Coral, Graffiti Orange, City Dusk, Street Rose. It also has a fresh and creamy texture that's super pigmented and blendable--easily transitioning between variations of finish (from intense dewy to soft matte). 

The haute street look goes downtown edge with a range of products consisting of 2 palettes of 6 eyeshadow shades ranging from easy-to-wear neutrals to eye-catching pearl artist shades, drawing pencils, limited edition dual-ended eye color pencils in vivid paint shades, and 4 rouge unlimited central and supreme shine lipsticks in signature lippie shades city neon, avenue sunset, brick burgundy, and highway pink.

Aside from the bright pigments and street art-inspired packaging by artist, Ōyama Enrico Isamu, the collection's focus is also make-up design that emphasizes the V shapes of the face and accentuates the V's with colour.

The face's V shapes are: the outer corner or inner corner of the eyes, the end of the eyebrows, the cheekbones, and lip corners. Highlighting the V shape with a vibrant colour will give you an effortless, modern and stylish look; skin will look clear; and colour will blend with the contours of your face.

Add the V-beauty techniques to your daily make-up for a creative, cool, fresh twist to your beauty style as inspired by this latest collection by Shu Uemura
