The gorgeous star of hit television series Smallville and Beauty and the Beast seems perpetually youthful and able to look exquisite using various looks. Let's look at Kristin's looks, her face shape, her facial features, and hair-styles to see how she's been able to accentuate her beauty for us, the very lucky adoring fans.
Round Face Shape
The round face shape is characterized by the face being almost as wide as it is long. The chin and jaw-line are rounded and not sharp. This face shape makes a person look young and vibrant.
However, the oval face shape is considered ideal. The purpose of most hair-styles is to make the face shape look more oval; while a face that is already oval in shape has an advantage and many hair-styles easily compliment it.
To slim down a round face, it is necessary to add length; and because the roundness of the face tends to take away from other facial features, such as the eyes, it is necessary to bring out these facial features by lending some definition to the face.
How to Slim Down a Round Face
To slim down a round face, it is necessary to accentuate height and tone down the width. One way to do this is to add volume to the top of the hair with a volumizer. You'll want the hair close to the sides to soften the width but not let it lay right on the jaw-line. Natural wavy hair lends itself to slimming down a round face too, but not curly hair. Bangs swept to the side detract from the width of the face and brings it a slimmer look. Also, make up that draws the eyes vertically rather than horizontally will lengthen the face nicely.

The Mystery of Kristin Kreuk
This lovely young actress is able to pull off anything, wear any hair-style and her beauty still shines through. Why? Well, her features are naturally soft, her skin tone is warm, her eyes are like green gems. And she has a secondary face shape. While she does have a round face because it's about as wide as it is long, her jaw-line is somewhat chiseled and her face is almost oval. This is the reason she is able to have very straight hair with not so much volume at the top and low-cuts too, while totally pulling her hair from the sides. So, many hair styles work for Kristin; long, short, low volume on top, and even hair pulled away from the sides. Her beauty always shines through!
