What Glasses Suit My Face?

When choosing frames for your eyeglasses, you may ask “What glasses suit my face?”. However, each face shape has its own unique characteristics, and these characteristics determine the right style of glasses for you. If you're not sure which eyeglasses are right for your face shape, this article will provide you with tips on how to choose the perfect frames for six common face shapes, and it will be a lot easier to combine these tips to find the right eyeglasses for you.

Frame types suitable for different face shapes

Oblong Face Shape Glasses

People with oblong faces have relatively long face lengths and narrow widths. For oblong face shapes, here are some suitable styles of frame glasses that can balance the facial features of oblong faces female or male:

Round or oval frame glasses can break up the lines of an oblong face and ease the feeling of facial length. Round frame shapes can add soft curves to the face.

Another option is to choose frames with a high curvature (such as a cat-eye shape) that can make the oblong face female and male look fuller and have a sense of curves and refinement, with the center of visual gravity shifting upward.

Additionally, oversize frame glasses can visually shorten the length of the face and create a more balanced look. Try to choose styles that are slightly wider in width to fill in the face space. Avoid frames that are too narrow or too wide, as they may emphasize the length of the face.

Frame Glasses for Diamond Faces

If you have high cheekbones and a relatively narrow forehead and jawline, then you belong to the diamond-shaped faces, also known as Rhomboid shaped face. To balance the angular features of your face, opt for glasses with oval or round frames. These styles can weaken the features of your features and make your face look more balanced. Meanwhile, angular frames such as rectangular or square frames need to be avoided as they make your face look like a geometric figure.

Frame Glasses for Round Faces

Round faces have soft curves and full cheeks. Adding some more angles to a round face will make it look more three-dimensional and contoured. Unlike diamond-shaped faces, people with round faces can precisely choose square or rectangle-framed eyeglasses to add more contour to their faces and balance out the roundness of their faces. At the same time, avoid round frames as they will make your face look rounder.

Glasses for Rectangle Face

For women or men with rectangular faces, it is advisable to avoid rectangular, square or geometric shapes when choosing eyeglasses. Because rectangular faces are characterized by sharp corners and distinctive straight lines, square or geometric glasses will enhance the facial features, as will square faces, as we will see below. Round or oval shaped glasses soften the natural angles of an oblong female or male face, making facial features appear more harmonious. Similarly, brow shaped glasses and cat eye frames soften the curves of the face and draw attention upward to the eyes.

Frame Glasses for Square Faces

The distinctive feature of a square face is that the contours of the chin and forehead are close to each other in width, which is somewhat similar to a square shape. If you have a square face, choose glasses with round or oval frames. These frame glasses styles add curves to the face and balance out the squareness of the face. Angular frames such as square or rectangular should also be avoided.

Frame Glasses for Oval Faces

Oval faces are recognized as the most versatile face shape because they have balanced facial proportions and a gently curved jawline. Most frame glasses are suitable for oval faces, but when choosing a frame size it is best to choose a frame that is slightly wider than the cheek portion.

Frame Glasses for Heart Shaped Faces

A heart-shaped face is characterized by a wide forehead, high cheekbones, and a narrow chin. To balance out the shape of your face, choose cat-eye or round frame glasses to make your face look more proportional while avoiding frames that are too heavy or too wide.
