My face is not exactly round, however, it also isn't extremely long.....

Jane's answer...
Hi Cristina. You're right! Your face is not round and while it is slightly longer than it is wide it is not extremely long compared to its width.

Your cheek bones are the widest part of your face. Your forehead is slightly wider than your jaw.

However, your nose and mouth are a little too large for your face shape to be oval and your face can't quite be divided into 3 equal horizontal sections (between your hairline, eyebrows, end of nose and chin) -- your forehead is the largest horizontal section.

You also have a widows peak. Therefore, although your face shape is close to being oval, your face shape is actually heart shaped.
