Not knowing which frame suits you best? Wondering whether the frame that you are in love with fits your face shape or not?
But first, do you know your face shape? Ever wondered what exactly your face shape is? Read on, and you may find your answer
Usually, oval face shape means that the forehead and jawline are about the same size. It lacks lines and angles, but this type of face has very balanced proportional features.
If you have an oval face shape, it means you can wear almost any shapes of glasses you want and look fantastic. From the square, round, wayfarer, even to oversized frames, all are a perfect fit for oval face shape. But if you would like to balance the elements on your face, square glasses may suit you better.
Round face shape means that the face length and width are about equal. The cheekbones are the widest part of your face.
If you have a round face shape, you can wear rectangular and square frames which will provide immediate structure and polish to round features
Triangle face shape is also known as pear face shape. It means that the face has a wide jaw and narrow forehead. The jawline is the most prominent part of your face. The face narrows at the cheekbones and temples.
If you have a triangle face shape, you will need detail on the top and a lean base on the bottom to draw focus from a strong jaw. Browline glasses, oval shapes, half-rim styles are great choices to balance a wide jaw. Also, oversized frames will make your jawline smaller.
Heart face shape usually has a wider forehead and the chin is pointed.
If you have a heart face shape, you can try rounder shapes to soften your forehead and chin. Frames like cat-eye styles that are wider on top than the bottom can balance the narrow chin. And don’t forget round and geometric frames.
Square face shape means that the forehead and jawline are nearly equal in width. The face is shorter in length and sharp in features.
If you have a square face shape, you may try rounder shapes, oval shapes, butterfly and cat-eye shapes to make your face appear a little bit longer, and soften your cheeks and jawline.
Diamond face shape usually has a narrow forehead and chin. It looks similar to a heart face shape but more angular. The cheekbones are the widest part of the face.
If you have a diamond face shape, a pair of glasses with a strong brow line will hold its own against your cheekbones. Round shapes and oval shapes are also great choices to balance the angular features.
Oblong face shape sometimes called rectangular face shape. It means a longer and narrower face. Usually, it doesn’t have full cheeks and the forehead, jaw, and cheeks are about equal in width.
If you have an oblong face shape, you probably would like to balance the length of your face, try glasses such as square, tall lenses to offset the length of your face.
