Tips on Choosing Eyeglasses Frames by Face Shape


PICKING GLASSES BY FACE SHAPE - DIFFERENT FACE SHAPES AND GLASSES


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.
