Tips on Choosing Eyeglasses Frames by Face Shape

Pick The Best Glasses for Your Face Shape
 First of all you must figure out what shape you face is. To do that simple take a look in the mirror. 
Ask yourself 3 questions:
1. What is the widest part of your face? Your forehead? Your cheeks (cheekbone)? Jaw?
2. What is the shape of your jaw? Rounded? Square? Pointed?
Then 3. Do you have a long face or a shorter one?

If You Have a Heart-Shaped or Triangular Face (You likely have a shorter face)
 
    Heart shape - glasses
     
A heart-shaped or triangular faces usually have a wide forehead, narrower jaw line, high cheekbones and a narrow chin.
Look for frames that will add width to the chin area. 
 
Tips

  • Wayfarer or cat-eye styles are great for balancing a triangular shaped face
  • Round frames in lighter colors soften a wide forehead
  • Frames that are wider at the bottom than the top help offset the narrow chin
  • Avoid frames that are decorative at the top or that are wider at the top than the bottom

  Round face Shape for Glasses
   
A Round-shaped face has a larger, curved forehead, full  cheeks with a round chin.

Round shaped faces should select angular frames to help  sharpen and add definition.

Tips

  • Angular  frames with rectangular or geometric shapes create balance and definition
  • Rectangular frame styles create a slimmer looking round face
  • The smaller the height of the frame the more thinner the  round face tends to look
  • Glasses with high or mid-height temples help lengthen a  round face

Square-shaped  faces are usually proportional in length and width. A strong prominent jaw line  with a square chin and a wide forehead are characteristic of this shape. Try  round or oval glasses to soften and add contrast to the face.

Tips

  • Round frames create curves and softening square or angular  faces
  • Cat-eye frames also add curves and contour square faces
  • The soft curves of oval frames help minimize angles and  lengthen a square face
  • Subtle rimless frames with soft edges add contrast

    Oval Shape for Glasses

 

Easiest face shape to complement. An oval-shaped face has  balanced proportions, a narrow forehead and chin of equal size, though chin is  a little narrower than the forehead. The proportions being balanced about any  frame shape will complement this face shape.

Tips

  • Most frame styles will work for this face shape, maybe start  with particularly geometric or round frames,
    or rectangular and butterfly frames
  • People with oval faces often have smaller features, so when  picking frames should in proportion and not overpowering.
