Everybody knows Jennifer Love Hewitt, the adorable actress in the hit TV show Party of Five and the provocative actress in The Client List. Well, she's multidimensional and has quite a range in her acting endeavors, but she is also multi-talented and has branched out into movies and music.
What she is also well-known for is her extraordinary beauty. She has a classic heart-shaped face, with sweet eyes and a warm smile. Her whole look is inviting and explains at least partly why she has been such a success in the entertainment industry.
How has she accentuated her incredible beauty?
Let's find out!
Jennifer Love Hewitt Face Shape: Heart Shaped Face
Jennifer Love Hewitt has a heart-shaped face. This means her face is wider at the top at the forehead, gets narrow at the jaw-line and tapers to her delicate chin.
Typically hairstyles and makeup for someone with a heart-shaped face attempt to down-play the top of the face where it is wider and try to play up the cheekbones and chin where the face is narrower.
Jennifer has gorgeous eyes and a sweet smile, so these have always been accentuated by her makeup, being very tantalizing features which she possesses.
Let's start by looking at her hair-styles.

For a heart-shaped face you want to make sure you don't add volume to the top of the hair and to try to minimize the appearance of the forehead. You are wanting to make the face more oval-shaped, which is a more ideal shape.
To achieve this, Jennifer has used side-swept bangs and has sometimes parted her hair down the middle. Side-swept bangs divert from the forehead and parting the hair in the center accentuates length rather than width. In addition, she has made her hair fuller in the middle to show-case her cheeks and jaw-line, again to take away from the forehead and highlight the lower part of her face.
Primarily she has used long-layers that add movement to the middle and lower part of the face, including use of wavy hair to gain this effect. Her hair has beautifully framed her lower face with wispy layers that taper to showcase her jaw-line and chin. Bangs have often grazed her eyes to bring them out and lessen sight of the forehead.
It is important to note that bob cuts can balance out a heart-shaped face too.
With a heart-shaped face you want to avoid slicked back hair that brings out the wider areas of the face too much.
How to contour and highlight heart shaped face
Jennifer Love Hewitt Makeup: Lengthen Face
It is important to highlight the center down of the face and to narrow the sides. You will put lighter makeup at the center of the forehead and the nose to bring attention to the center of the face. You then use darker shades to contour cheeks and temples to narrow them down.

Do not add volume to the top, instead accentuate middle and lower face
Hight-light middle of face to add length, and shape sides of face.
Avoid slicked back hair that accentuates width of face.
Accessories for a Heart Shaped Face Earrings and other jewelry
Loops and straight dangling earrings do well with a heart-shaped face, as long as you avoid jewelry that will point to the chin. You want the jewelry to widen the jaw-line so you do want jewelry that is longer than it is wide, but wider at the bottom to balance out the face by showcasing, to some extent, the jaw-line; and longer jewelry will also lengthen the face to minimize the wider forehead. Chokers also flatter a heart-shaped face.
If you are wearing glasses, you will want to use glasses that are not wider than your face, because, again you don't want to accentuate the width of the upper part of the face; so you also want the glasses somewhat understated, in a light color or rimless.
How Does She Do It?
Jennifer Love Hewitt has been able to accentuate her sweet eyes with bangs that graze the top of her eyes and side-swept bangs, as well as dark eye-liner and only light blush. Her hair is typically relatively long and wavy at the sides, adding movement and grace to her jaw-line and cheekbones. Her makeup contours her temples and cheeks and she uses natural pink lipstick to color her gorgeous lips.
She remains one of the most gorgeous women in show business, gracing the television, music and movie industries with her exquisite beauty and adorable ways.
