Choose Right Eye Wear According to your Face
Choosing glasses can be challenging, especially when you consider the wide range of styles and facial shapes available.
However, choosing glasses gets simpler if you are aware of your face shape and the type of frame that best complements it.
What Kinds of Face Shapes Are There?
It’s significant to remember that there is a vast range of facial forms, and not all faces will completely match one particular shape. For instance, oval faces might have similar traits to round faces, such as a rounded jaw and wide cheekbones.
Some faces may lie anywhere between the two shapes, in which case you should experiment with glasses designed for both shapes.
However, there are commonly five different types of face shapes:
Square: Square faces have strong, wide jawlines that are also wide at the cheekbones, giving the impression that the face is square.
Round faces tend to be asymmetrical and have wide cheekbones, which can give the impression that the face is unevenly round or circular.
Inverted triangle: Faces with an inverted triangle shape also have chiselled cheekbones and broad foreheads.
Pear-shaped faces, commonly referred to as triangle-shaped faces, are a less typical face shape type. These face types are distinguished by a wide jawline and a narrow forehead.
Oval: The length of an oval face is greater than the breadth. These faces have longer foreheads and rounder jawlines.
Examine hues that complement your skin tone
Your skin tone influences which frames appear best, just as your facial shape does. Skin tone determines the style of high fashion frames more so than hair colour or eye colour. Choose a colour that matches your skin tone the closest:
Skin Tone: Warm
You have a warm complexion if your skin has a yellow, bronze, or golden hue. Avoid using contrasting hues, such as pastels. Black and white frames are very unattractive. Instead, light tortoise, brown tones, gold or honey, beige, and olive green are the ideal frame colours for you.
Skin Tone: Cool
You have a cool complexion if pink or blue undertones can be seen in your skin. Reach for frames in silver, black, dark tortoise, pink, purple, blue, mauve, and grey instead of colours that bleach you out.
What Face Shape Do I Have?
Examining these four facial traits while looking in the mirror or taking a photo of yourself is the easiest approach to figure out what face shape you have:
How long your face is
how wide your forehead is
how wide your cheekbones are
Before checking your face, it could be helpful to pull your hair back or wet it down.
You should be aware of whatever area of your face is the widest and the longest. You may quickly identify the type of face shape you have or whether your face fits into more than one form by noting the widest and longest regions of your face.
By comparing the length and width of your features to those described above, you may then make an educated judgement as to what kind of facial shape you have.
