Few Tips to Wear Maang Tikka for Different Face Types
# 1 – Round face cut
So if you have a round shape, try choosing a longer style of maang tikka, preferably in oval or rectangular shape. This will help add length to your face. Avoid round and circular shapes in your maang tikka as well as other jewellery items that you choose.
# 2 – Oval face cut
If you have an oval face then consider yourself lucky as most make-up artists consider this to be the best face cut. With an oval face you can experiment with almost every type of maang tikka but try avoiding the ones which are extra long in length as these will add an unnecessary length to your face.
# 3 – Rectangular face cut
With a rectangular face cut it is obvious that you need to avoid any maang tikkas which have square or rectangular motifs in them. Small or large round pendant ones are likely to be the best option for such a face cut
# 4 – Heart shaped face cut
With such a face cut, the chin area is narrower so it is better to wear shorter maang tikkas with dangling parts so as to add some length to your face. Avoid going for smaller or pendant shaped maang tikkas though.
