Do you have the right frame for your face shape?
Finding the best-shaped eyewear for your face is the most critical step to finding your ideal frames. With a gazillion options to choose from and not knowing what works best can be quite a task!
There are frames that work to set off your beautiful features, and there are frames that don’t.
So how do you know which ones are right and which ones are not, so you don’t end up looking like Mr. Potato head?
The first thing you’ll need to do is, to figure out the shape of your face, something that’ll bring out your unique facial contours. Having eyeglasses which are in contrast to your face shape will not only help accentuate your features, but also hide your imperfections.
Keeping that in mind, below are a few steps for choosing the most flattering frames for your face shape.
1) Round shaped face
If you have a round face, it’s wise to invest in a pair of angular frames to contrast a round jawline and to add more definition. Choose rectangular frames that help elongate your face and draw attention to the center of your face, making it look slimmer.
So, stop worrying, you look adorable anyway!
Fun fact: People with round faces are predominantly known to be emotional, sensitive and caring.
2) Square shaped face
A square face has more angular lines with cheekbones, forehead and a jaw that are equally wide.
Pick round frames that soften your angular features and make sure that the width is slightly wider than your cheekbones. You require curvier frames to offset the strong jawline.
Fun fact: People with square faces are ambitious and dominating. They can get irritated easily and get angry quickly but they also usually cool off just as suddenly.
3) Diamond shaped face
Diamond shaped face is widest at cheekbones and narrower at both, the chin and forehead. What suits them best are the classic cat-eye or oval frames which accentuate the cheekbones.
Fun fact: People with diamond faces are good communicators and are precise and have an eye for detail. They are also the rarest face type. Well now I know why! 😀
4) Heart shaped face
A heart face is widest at the forehead and gradually narrows to the jaw. Play off your delicate proportions with a frame that’s widest at the bottom. An aviator style or retro-inspired D-frame works great for your features. Look for frames that are slightly wider than your forehead, with detailing on their lower portion. Rectangular frames will also complement your face shape.
Fun fact: People with heart shaped faces can be stubborn because they are so strong minded. A common personality trait is, they have having a strong illusion and are creative people.
5) Oval shaped face
An oval face is the most versatile to fit, with slightly wider cheekbones and a gentle narrow forehead and jaw. It’s an ideal canvas for any frame shape.Choose a bold shape to complement your style like oversized frames; they will work great with your features.
Fun fact: People with oval faces are practical, methodical and overachievers in their careers. No wonder, Beyonce has an oval face!
6) Oblong shaped face
For people with an oblong face, the trick is to break up the long face shape with oversize glasses. Wide square frames or wayfarers help create the illusion of more facial width, and the same goes for accents on the hinges or temples, or a frame with extra thickness on the sides.
Fun fact: These individuals are usually practical and deliberate but may tend to overwork.
So are you ready to show off your super trendy eyewear with absolute grace? Well, I know I am!
