Shapes, according to your face shape

The shape of the face is one of the determining factors when choosing glasses. But, do you already know what the shape of your face is (oval, round, heart ...)? Sometimes it is difficult to pigeonhole our physiognomy in a generic. Now you will see how for each type of face there are a few little tricks to see if it corresponds with your physiognomy, what shape of glasses is recommended in each case and what good features will they accent and which imperfections will they harmonize. Let's go!

Heart / triangule face shape

What features define it?

Heart-shaped faces have the upper zone -Front and eyes- wide, very marked cheeks and the bottom zone - mouth and chin - narrow or with a pointed chin.

What glasses shapes are recommended?

Glasses rounds angled and rounded glasses on top. This second case would be, for example, spectacles aviator, glasses in Cat-Eye shape made fashionable by movie divas of the fifties, oval glasses or Butterly-shaped glasses. Men, in particular, may also try square frames.

What can we improve with glasses?

Heart-shaped faces, with glasses, can minimize the width of the forehead. Try glasses that are wider at the bottom, with soft colors soft materials, or rimless frames. The size of the glasses should not exceed the temples, this way you prevent accentuating the size difference between the upper and lower face.

Square face

What features define it?

Are those that have very angular shapes with a sharp jaw. With a strong line at the height of the jaw and forehead. They have a very similar proportion of length and width.

What glasses shapes are recommended?

The best allies are cat-eye glasses or round, oval, butterfly, or aviator glasses. Within rounded glasses, you have to play with the height of the glasses to match the proportions of your face.

For square faces with large proportions we recommend round or oversize, large, extravagant glasses.

In any case, square faces are advised to wear glasses without too many details, but a rather simple, thin frame. We don't recommend you to wear excessively small nor too round glasses, since they will vertically mark your aface. Light colors soften the hardness of your face.

What will we improve with glasses?

Although in square faces the proportion of the nose, forehead and chin is almost smooth, the main objective is to conceal the angles from the jaw and cheeks. With the glasses mentioned above, people with square faces can relax facial angles and soften the expression and gaze. So, with rounded glasses, hard defined features are compensated.

Round face

What features define it?

Round faces are characterized by wide forehead and bulky cheeks. When looking at the face by the front, curved lines without angles are observed, with a length and width in equal proportions. In some cases, moreover, these can be faces with little side face relief, with flattened noses.

What glasses shapes are recommended?

For round faces glasses with straight lines are recommended, this will allow to obtain a long, narrow face. Therefore, square or rectangular wayfarer sunglasses will fit you well. Retro models are a great idea for this type of face.

We will make a small differentiation: For round and small faces we recommend rectangular glasses. Conversely, for round faces but with higher proportions square glasses are recommended, and this way you will attain to disguise these spaces.

In any case, if you have a round face, you can dare to use colored oversize thick-framed glasses, without fear, because you have the best face for wearing them!

For square faces with large proportions we recommend round, large, oversized, extravagant glasses.

In any case, for square faces we recommend you to wear glasses without too many details, but of rather simple, thin frame. We don't recommend you to wear excessively small nor too round glasses, since they will mark your face vertically. Light colors soften the hardness of your face.

What will we improve with the glasses?

Round faces can disguise those less flattering spaces between eyes, nose and mouth, because the glasses will harmonize their proportions.

Oval face

What features define it?

This shape is considered the perfect face due to the balance of its proportions. There are faces slightly wider at the cheeks and a little narrower towards the chin.

What glasses shapes are recommended?

It is said that if you have an oval face, you're in luck! Most eyeglasses shapes will fit you well, so, in general, you just have to guide yourself by your preferences when choosing the frame of your glasses.

Of course, keep in mind that oval faces have balanced proportions, and therefore it is recommended for the frame to be thin, not excessively thick. To maintain this natural balance, look for frames that are as wide, or wider, than the widest part of your face.

In this case glasses are a fashion and health accessory that will strengthen your style and personality.
