Just like you can choose the perfect hairstyle based on your face shape, you can also choose the perfect pair of glasses that will flatter your natural beauty! Here’s a guide on how to choose a pair of glasses based on your face shape:
For Oval Faces:
If you have an oval face, that means the widest part of your face is your forehead and you have a softer jawline and a longer face. People with oval faces generally have very balanced features and higher cheekbones. Because of this, people with oval shaped faces should try to find frames that are wider than the broadest part of their face (the forehead). Bold shapes and fun colors will draw attention to and complement your high cheekbones. Oval faces can really go for any shape, round or square, and choose either dark or light frames!

For Heart Faces:
If you have a heart-shaped face, this means your forehead is the widest part of your face but you have a smaller, more pointy jawline. Similarly to oval-shaped faces, heart-shaped faces have higher cheekbones and a wider forehead. However, due to the strength of the chin in heart-shaped faces, you want to find a frame that will minimize the width of your forehead and broaden the appearance of your chin.

For Square Faces:
If you have a square-shaped face, this means your forehead, cheekbones and jawline are all around the same width and you have a strong jawline. Due to the harder angles of your features and jawline, you want to look for frames that have a lot of curves (think oval, rounded rectangle, circle) to soften your features.
For square faces, try frames like these!
For Round Faces:
If you have a round face, this means your cheek and cheekbones are the widest part of your face and you have a softer jawline and a shorter face. Because of this, you want curvy frames, as they will exaggerate your face’s natural roundness. Wider frames give the illusion of a slimmer face, and strong details in your frames (like prints and designs) will serve as a nice contrast to your features.
