I don't want to post pictures of myself straight on, because of this very reason...
But this girl has a very similar face shape:
I almost never find someone with a face shape similar enough, and even then this is not quite there. Forehead isn't as wide as my cheeks or jawline, cheeks a little wider than jawline, but then my face is kind of chubby.. I have all prominent cheeks (full), chin (in profile and pointy when smiling), and jawline (squared and seen in profile). My face is about as wide as it is long, but my forehead isn't short. I kind of have all of the face shapes in one except oval and long?
Any help? I've literally done ALL the research one could possibly do about the traditional denominations of face shapes... and I've found I don't fit into any of the definitively. I used to just sweep myself under round.. but square or rectangle eye frames look absolutely terrible while I find only round frames to look good on me. However I do not have prominent cheek bones (even though mine are high, I have a chubbier face despite being 90 pounds) and other square face shape advice does not jive.
Really blurry picture of how my face shape looks when smiling... it's ridiculously strange because it looks nothing like this when my face is relaxed. Also this is blurry and therefore kind of flattering as my cheeks are usually more prominent. I'm not smiling all the way though... then it starts looking really terrible. My chin goes \/ but it looks strange with my full cheeks and then I have dimples under my lips? @ ~ @
I've never gotten my hair professionally cut. I've always done it myself, and I'm convinced a hair stylist can't really offer my that much further knowledge than the amount I've researched online for the price of about 60 dollars. Should I really spend that money? I mean, I've played around with all sorts of styles.
I'm honestly so insecure I'm hoping I can get jaw and cheek reshaping surgery... but first I might try botox in my masseter muscles and then buccal fat pad removal (I know it's not recommended but I doubt I'd miss the cheek fat in the future).
EDIT: Everyone seems to be mislead by my smiling pic! This is what my face is when relaxed and mouth slightly open... (also my face is super asymmetrical.. in my jaw line too which makes it even harder), shrunken because I look ghastly haha, sparing you of the details:
Took this especially for this thread. Hair pulled back straight on.. gah...I actually look a little better without bangs though, it lengthens out my face since I dont have a squared forehead?
