You can use lighting to mold the face and body as well as utilize shadows to slim and flatter your model. Notice how the light source is above eye level casting the shadows from the top of her head to the bottom. To see if you have your lighting right, always look to see if there is a slight shadow under the nose. If there is no shadow, either raise your light source, or have her bring her chin down. Always utilize the light on the most flattering side of her body.
