You are a Pear or A-Triangle face shape if your jawline is the widest part of your face. The difference between the two is the angular or rounded nature of the jaw and chin.

You are a Pear shape if your jawline and chin are rounded and soft as seen in the top photo of actress Raven-Symones.

Conversely, your face is a A-Triangle shape if your jawline and chin are angular, as in the bottom photo of this dark-haired model.
