Prepping the chin

Before applying makeup, I always suggest you prep your skin well to remove impurities from your face so that you have a clean and smooth surface to work on. Start by cleansing your face and applying a good quality moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. Chin is my focus point here, so that I will prepare my chin well. 

Treat Your Chin with a Wrinkle Filler

Wrinkle filler expands when applied, filling in your cleft chin and almost masking it. Wrinkle fillers are non-surgical methods to cover the cleft chin.

The most popular wrinkle fillers contain hyaluronic acid. They are cream, ointment, or gel-based, and wrinkle fillers are used as “volumizers” to plump cleft chins. I prefer to use RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Filler. You can apply wrinkle filler in these steps. 

  1. Squeeze a dot of wrinkle filler at the back of your hand.
  2. Apply it gently to the chin area with your fingertip or using an applicator brush. 
  3. Dab the filler into the line of your chin dimple.
  4. Don’t rub or smear it.
  5. Keep patting it on the chin by dabbing it with the pad of your fingertip. 
  6. Allow the product to sit and let it dry for a few minutes.
  7. By this time, It will expand and diminish the appearance of a cleft chin.

Warning: Wrinkle Fillers can make your chin area dry if over-applied.

Makeup application

It can be a bit tricky for you to apply makeup to hide your cleft chin. The makeup routine remains the same except for specific techniques. You can use different types of makeup products, and also, using these few makeup application techniques can make your cleft chin less prominent.


Use a concealer that exactly matches or a half-shade lighter to your skin tone to hide the chin. You can use Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-In-Place Flawless Concealer. Start by dabbing the concealer lightly not to disturb the wrinkle filler. Always use a damped sponge to apply the product to your skin smoothly. Try to blend the concealer out toward the chin to reduce the shadow of the dimple. 

Note: Keep in mind that you use highly pigmented and full coverage concealer. 

Setting powder

To make your concealer smudge-proof and to ensure it lasts longer, you should always set it using a setting powder. You can either use a pressed powder or loose powder. You can pick up the powder onto a fluffy brush, then dust it lightly on the chin area. Laura Mercier’s Translucent Loose Setting Powder is my favorite.

Cleft chin fillers

There are mixed opinions among people about the appearance of a cleft chin. Some consider it a beauty symbol, and some relate it to the flaw of facial features. It is up to you whether you want to flaunt your dimpled chin or hide it. You can opt for cleft chin fillers in two ways:-

  1. Non-surgical cleft chin fillers ( Derma fillers)
  2. Surgical cleft chin fillers

Derma fillers

The derma filler is the most common injective method to fill the cleft chin. Doctors inject gel-based substances known as dermal filler into your chin. These last long for 6-12 months. 

Depending on the depth of the cleft chin, you can decide with the doctor what proportions of derma fillers to inject. It is the best alternative to surgical chin fillers. 

Warning: It involves the risk of allergic reactions.

Fat grafting

Your body fat is grafted to fill in your chin. It is done in liposuction surgery, in which the excess fat is removed from your belly area, refined, and transferred to the chin.  


It involves injections that paralyze the chin muscles to reduce the appearance of the cleft chin. It doesn’t last long. You can repeat it.
