Mathapatti / maangtika as per your face shape

The first point before picking up your head jewellery would be to analyse and understand your face shape. Which could be referred from the chart under.


Square face cut – (Celeb match – Kareena Kapoor)

A strong jawbone, cheekbones and brown bone is your type and a asymmetrical maang tika or matha Patti with hair parted to one side would flatter your face the most. Passa’s also make a great head piece for this face cut.


Round – (Celeb match – Sonakshi Sinha)

A fuller and a round face requires more length to be added, which is done easy by using smaller pulled back maangtikas, with elegant trinkets. We’d suggest keeping off matha Pattis for this face type. Rajasthani bodlas work wonderfully with this face type.


Oblong – (Celeb match – Katrina Kaif)

A long and narrow face, consider adding width to your face type by using a chunky and a broad maatha Patti. Elaborate head jewellery should be your go to thing.

Heart shaped – (Celeb match – Deepika Padukone)

If a Pointed chin, and cheek area that is wider than the forehead is your face type then multilayered but elegant mathapattis with trinkets would be the most ideal or you could go in for soft and small manngtikas with danglibits.


Diamond -(Celeb match – Malaika arora)

Yep your cheekbones stand out and that you don’t want to take away from, using one sides jhoomers and passas shall add more charm to your face type. Try keeping away from super chunky accessories.

Oval – (Celeb match – Sonam Kapoor )

Congratulations! You have the most ideal face type and any thing and everything would suit you. From bold and chunky to light and asymmetrical they would all flatter your face cut.
