In just a few minutes, you’ll be on you’re way to looking like you’re here for the party. You’re Welcome!

Square Shaped Face

People with square faces have broader foreheads, strong jawlines, and a square chin. Celebrities with square face shapes include Olivia Wilde, Jennifer Hudson, and Nicole Richie.

When browsing for eyewear opt for round, oval, and cat eye frames. Whereas, sharp angles and square frames are a definite no-no. Your frames should soften your sharp features and lengthen your face. Browse for eyewear longer in width and smaller in height.

Heart-shaped Face

Like a heart shape, your face is wider on the top and becomes narrower towards your chin. Babes like Eva Longoria, Naomi Campbell, and Scarlett Johansson all have heart-shaped faces.

Your eyewear should widen the appearance of your chin and downplay the width of your forehead. Grab a pair of semi-rimless, round, or square frames and stay clear of oversized or top-heavy styles.

Oval Shaped Face

Essentially… any frame will suit someone with an oval-shaped face. Like Beyoncé and Rhianna, an oval-shaped face is well balanced with a subtle narrow chin and well-defined cheekbones. Most distinguishable, is that oval faces are longer in length than in width.

Cat eye, square, or rectangle it doesn’t matter, they will all look incredible on you. Just don’t go too oversized as it could become overwhelming and uncomplimentary.

Round Shaped Face

If you have a rounded chin, a wide forehead, and full cheeks like our favs Chrissy Teigen and Selena Gomez, then your face is round shaped.

Eyewear that features straight or angular lines will add contrast to the roundness of your face. Also, bright coloured frames, frames with print, or highly decorative frames will compliment your face perfectly.

Still can’t find locate a pair close by? Measure your face from temple to temple instead, just hover the tape measurer over your face so that it hits right below your eyebrows.You can use a tape measure or even your old school ruler.
