How To Pick Glasses For Your Face?

It is bothering when you don’t know how to pick the right glasses for your face.No worry,with our little guide, you'll learn that there's a frame for everyone.

The best way to shorten the selection process is by understanding what frame styles will suit your face shape and skin tone.

Face Shape:

1.Oval:An oval face is proportionally balanced, with a slightly curved jawline that is somewhat narrower than the forehead.

1.Oval face allows for the most flexibility in frame options.While frames that have a strong bridge and are geometric or walnut shaped complement the oval face-type best.

2.Avoid frames that are too heavy or bulky looking, or that cover more than half of your face. These types of frames will minimize your natural symmetry.

2.Base-Up Triangle(Heart Shaped): This face has a broader forehead and prominent cheekbones paired with a narrower chin.

1.Frames that are bottom heavy and draw lower on your face, like round frames, accentuate your cheekbones and balance the different weights of your face.

2.Avoid frames that go above your eyebrows or anything that accentuates the forehead, like jewels on the temples or embellishments on the tops of your frames.

3.Oblong: This face shape is longer than its width and tends to have a long, straight cheek line. Sometimes oblong faces also have a longer nose.

1.Find frames that have more depth than width to balance out the symmetry of your face. In addition, frames that are embellished or decorative on the temples and have a low bridge will shorten the appearance of your nose.

2.Avoid frames that are short or shallow, and frames that span the entire width of your face.

4.Round: A round face is typically as wide as its length and lacking prominent cheekbones.

1.Look for rectangular or square frames that are wider than your face or thinner and angular frames. Both these frame types will offset the roundness of your face and will make your face appear elongated and thinner.

2.Avoid frames that are rimless or circular. Any rounded shape in a frame will accentuate the roundness of your face and make it appear rounder.

5.Square: This face is typically anchored by a wide, angular jawline and a similarly broad forehead.

1.To make your face appear longer and to soften angles, try narrow oval frames, wider frames with a shallow depth, ones that sit high on the bridge of your nose.

2.Avoid angular and square frames. These will draw attention to the angles of your face and make your face appear more harsh.

6.Diamond:This face combines an angular jawline and prominent cheekbones with a narrower forehead.

1.Look for round and oval frames that add softness to angular features, or frames which have distinct brow lines to balance facial features.While cat-eye frames can add volume around narrow cheekbones.

2.Avoid frames that are boxy or thin. These frames will make your cheeks look wider.

7.Base-Down Triangle: People with narrow foreheads and have a wider chin and jaw.

Frames that have details on the top and are more delicate or rimless on the bottom will help balance the shape of your face.

Skin Tone:

All skin tones fall into one of two categories. Frames will suit you best if you choose colors that fall into the right complexion tone.

1.Cool Complexion: blue or pink undertones, including olive skin.

1.Silver, black, grey, blue, purple, pink and dark tortoise are the best choices for this skin tone.

2.Steer clear of colors that will wash you out.

2.Warm Complexion: yellow undertones, bronze or golden complexion.

1.Olive-colored frames, light tortoise, gold frames, or brown tones are the best choices for this skin tone.

2.Stay away from black or white frames, as well as pastels.

Face shape and skin tone are the major elements when choosing frames. You can also choose frame colors that accentuate your eye and hair color as well.
