You are a Heart or V-Triangle face shape if your forehead is the widest part of your face then slopes down to a narrower jaw line and chin. The difference between the two is the angular or rounded nature of the jaw and chin.

You are a Heart shape if your jawline and chin are rounded and soft. You may also have a Widow’s Peak as shown in the top photo above of actress Alyson Hannigan.

Conversely, your face is a V-Triangle shape if your jawline and chin are angular, as in the above photo of actress Reese Witherspoon.
