    My face is rather round so it looks pudgy on camera and it looks a little fat for my body type.

    Some people just have a naturally round skull, and so their face will always be somewhat round. From your picture (assuming that's you) it doesn't look like you have excess fat in your face so if you're at a good body fat percentage then that may just be your shape. As for the chin, though, there are some good exercises available for toning up the neck, chin, and jawline (I use these a lot while I'm working). Try a Google search for "double chin exercises" or "jawline exercises" and you should be able to find some good ones.

    (I was going to write this last, but let me start positively for you)...
    You look like a very attractive girl. You should feel blessed with the looks you were given, and don't do anything to RUIN your face...

    Answer: Not really...
    Please do not try any "exercises" for your face. I really want to emphasize that point. I don't want to make you feel bad, but that is your face's natural structure. If it was a body fat issue, you would have a chubby neck (and everything else). The exercises for your face would go against natural movements. Your face is made up of small fast-twitch muscles that are not meant to be posed for long periods of time. Even if you noticed a slight change, your face would return to normal as you aged, because you would not have the energy to keep up with face exercises. Only it would show a lot more wrinkles and sagging, like a body-builder who is past his prime.
    There may be slow responding things you could do. Make sure you are eating a healthy diet, not smoking, not drinking too much, and don't overly stress yourself. These things may make you look "better", but that would be more because of the glow of a positive life. However, stressing about something as minor as your cheeks is guarenteed to make you look worse.

    Faces seem to go hand in hand with overall body fat. Typically, when someone starts to lose weight, the face is the first place you will see it. If you have a completely toned body, where all your muscles appear to be carved out of wood, "similar to a fitness model", then you have probably reached the point where your face can't get any slimmer.
    I have known people who were very thin and had some decent muscle. They would work out constantly. When summer came, they wanted to slim down a bit for it. When they did, they cut their muscle size down by half and tightened everything up even more than before. This was when they got to the point, to where their ribs would show if they stretched out. Or if they bent over, you could see them in their back. To look at before and after photos, they looked anorexic. And yes, it showed in their face dramatically.
    Other than becoming skin and bones, there isn't much else you can do if you are thin. Eat an ultra clean diet and exercise regularly. Otherwise, there are plenty of ways to make your face "appear" thinner. I caught an episode of a talk show once, where trying to appear thinner, was the topic. It showed different things that people can do, ways to dress or cut hair, to make them look thinner. Change your hairstyle or wear over sized glasses and sunglasses, and your face will appear much thinner! Good luck!
    P.S. You look fine, and you are always gonna be your worst critic. So ask people you can trust to give you an honest answer. You'll never be perfect in your own eyes!

    As previously mentioned here, your face will react like the rest of your body. Increase the amount of vegetables and fruits and decrease the amounts of meats, sweets, pastas. Whole grains are fine. Eat four or five small meals instead of the usual three. Drink water with your meals and try for your meal to be at least two hours before retiring for the night.

    Overall, you seem to be very attractive, so just be yourself!!!

    You look beautiful!  You have a beautiful A-shaped face with enviably high cheek bones.  You look like you could be a model. 

    With that said, if you want to achieve the appearance of a thinner face, try a new hairstyle.  Different hairstyles can give you the appearance of  having a thinner face. 

    It's the same logic that is applied to fashion.  We all have different body types.  I am sure you have seen fashion do's and don'ts--three different women with three different body types wearing the same outfit.  They each have a different appearance, but are wearing the exact same clothes.

    There are computer programs, you can use that will put a certain hair style with your face so you can see what you will look like before cutting your beautiful hair. An upscale salon will be the best place to find this type of service.

    You may even be able to style it in a different way, to get the desired effect. 

    Keep in mind, it could also be fun to visit a wig store and sample different styles.  Be sure to take a friend and make it a fun day experimenting. 

    Good luck!

    Am I the only one that thinks you look beautiful with the face you have?  When touching a woman's face it's nicer to touch a face like yours. Just sayin' :-P
