Another tip here:

Make sure you get the measurement of this area right because if you goof up here, can throw features like your ears way off proportion. Further, the width of your cheekbones is especially important when you are picking a hairstyle for yourself.

Size your face by placing the tape across the sharpest part, just below the outer corner of each eye.
