Find The Right Glasses For Your Face Shape
Are you having trouble finding the perfect pair of glasses? One that looks good in the optical shop, on your favourite artist, or best friend may not be that great when you try them on. Why you ask. Well, this is likely because you do not share the same face shape. Finding the right pair for you starts with identifying your face shape.
To determine your face shape, pull your hair away from your face and have a good look at yourself. Trace the outline of your face to determine if it’s square, round, heart, triangle, diamond, or oval.
If you have a square face shape, you have angular lines with equally wide cheekbones forehead and jaw.
Your goal is to soften your angular features. To achieve that, the frame you choose should fulfill the below:
- Round or oval frames
- Width of the frame should ideally be slightly wider than your cheekbones
- Thinner frame that will not overwhelm
Your face has soft angles with slightly wider cheekbones and equally wide forehead and jaw.
You should look for frames with sharp angles to add extra definition to your face. To do so, ensure that you:
- Avoid small and round frames
- Choose frames that are more angular and wide to add the illusion of length
- Opt for angular frames to add sharp and distinct lines to your face
If the widest part of your face is your forehead, which gradually narrows through the jaw, you have a heart shape face.
Your goal is to create balance. You want to choose a frame that is:
- Slightly wider than your forehead in width
- Heavier at the bottom if you have an especially narrow chin
Modified wayfarer shape works great with your features.
Triangle faces has its widest at the jaw and gradually narrows through the forehead.
Similar to heart shaped faces, you want to balance out the proportions of your face. You can achieve this by choosing frames that are wider than your jawline.
Some examples of frames that work for you are aviators and cat eye frames.
Congrats! You have the most versatile face out of all, allowing the most flexibility in choosing the perfect pair of glasses! You have slightly wider cheekbones and a gentle narrowing at the forehead and jaw.
Square, rectangular, geometric shape frames all suit your face shape. You can also carry an oversized frame well with your features.
Go bold, experiment with colours and textures to standout!
