Glasses for Your Face Shape

Glasses for Your Face Shape

Finding the right pair of glasses can be a challenge, especially if you're trying on eyewear that doesn't compliment your face shape. Whether your face is round, oval, heart, or diamond-shaped, you can find the perfect pair as long as you know where to start. Read on to find out how you can discover the perfect pair of glasses for your face shape for an attractive, stylish look you'll love to wear.

Best Glasses for Oval Faces

If you have an oval face, your cheekbones are higher and slightly wider, narrowing closer toward the forehead. This elongated, yet rounded face shape means you can wear just about any style of glasses without an issue. Oversized and wide frames look terrific on people with an oval face shape. You can even go wild by choosing something featuring a unique color, texture, or shape like trapezoid or rectangular glasses. It's best to avoid narrow frames or anything with overwhelming designs if you have an oval face shape since they can add too much length to your face.

Best Glasses for Square Faces

If you have a square-shaped face, you can also wear several different types of glasses. People with this face shape have a wider jaw and forehead, and a stronger jawline. Glasses that sit high on the nose can flatter this face shape. If you want something that will draw attention to your facial features, look for glasses that are dark and round glasses rather than angular. Round frames soften a square face and angular features. Rimless or semi-rimless glasses frames can be a good option.

Best Glasses for Round Faces

Geometric glasses work best on those with a round-shaped face. If you have a round face, everything is in equal proportion in terms of width and length. Try a sharp-angled frame if you want to add more depth and definition to your face, and stay away from small, rounded frames if you can. Anything that is angular and wide will look great on a round-shaped face since it creates the illusion of a longer length. Try full or semi-rimless frames to achieve this look.

Glasses for Heart Shaped Faces

Those with a heart-shaped face tend to have wider foreheads, narrow chins, and high cheekbones. Many different styles look great on those with a heart-shaped face. Try something with a round or oval-shaped frame in a light, thin design and light color. Stay away from wearing frames that are heavy on the bottom, oversized, or those that have lots of complicated designs and colors. You want your glasses to draw attention to the top of your face to create a nice balance. Rimless glasses should look attractive if your face has a heart shape to it.

Glasses for Diamond Shaped Faces

While diamond-shaped faces are rare if you have full cheeks and a narrow forehead and jawline, this could apply to you. Try a rimless pair of glasses with oval glasses and a strong brow line. This design can help to balance your face while helping to highlight its best features. A cat-eye or horn-rim frame is a fun choice for those with a diamond-shaped face. Just make sure your glasses have delicate features, so they don't accentuate parts of your face you'd rather not show off.
