or older, sometimes it appears slightly rounder and longer or almost wider to square shaped

From the beginning Helena appears to have a longer-egg, now much wider-almost more wider to square shaped at times. Allow me to show you a quick film timeline to see how her face shape appears to change over the years below from young age to Early 1990s to now…

You can see how the shape starts to appear much wider to more square over the years.

More about the shape below…

I have found in the past that shapes of faces can be identified by:

  • First, figuring out if it is elliptic, trilateral or even quadrilateral (and in some cases semi-geometric/free formed).
  • Second, by length and width
  • Finally, how round-flat it is.

First, looking at Helena’s shape the first thing you may notice is how wide and flat it is.

You may see that at first,

However, do you see how the chin is also flat and square too?…

The reason why I ask is that not all wide shapes are always completely flat all the time.

Some have more of a slightly elongated, rounder trilateral chin which I like to refer to as a wide heart shape.

But is it wide heart shaped or…

Is the chin along with the top part of the shape, altogether wide and flat, square?

How can you tell the difference?

If you were to trace around the face you may notice something about the chin itself…

That instead of the chin having more of an elongation and trilateral quality the chin starts to 

connect along with the rest of the square form finishing the square form?

Allow me to elaborate on that…

First, looking at the top to bottom part of the shape of face

you may start to notice how there is no protruding, elongation or roundness of chin at all.

Then, looking back at the whole shape of face how box-shaped it is with the chin connecting around it,

like flat, folded in corners, finishing the Box shape”,

finishing the bottom half, closing it and

connecting the unfinished top part of shape before the chin.

Finally, tracing your finger around it looking at the chin

and the shape together, you can see

how box-like it is with a square form, vastly wide and flat 

with a square form, vastly wide and flat aka; Square shaped it is.

If the chin/whole shape itself was longer and not completely flat but vastly wide, it would be a wide heart shape,

which is a very close call.

However looking at the chin to the whole shape it is formed even flatter and vastly wide aka; square shaped.

So, basically, you can see the difference and how wide and flat it appears at first. 

Afterward looking at the chin to the whole shape itself finding it is box-like, 

vastly wide and flat aka; square shaped.

If you are still a little confused

about this face shape and/or how I found it you can see other examples here.

So, one face shape reading down

a million to go
