1 Heart shaped face

Just like the heart, the face with this shape has broader upper part and goes slightly narrow as it goes down the cheeks. People with heart shaped faces should use glasses that are wider at the bottom, or they can use frame less glasses. Avoid other types because they would emphasize the broad upper part of your face.

2 Oval shaped face

If you have an oval shaped face, congratulations, you are lucky because this shape looks good with practically every frame of glasses. People with oval faces can also pull out any hair style. What’s the secret? Nothing, but good symmetry. When you are picking glasses, make sure you get a pair that is as wide as the broadest part of your face and avoid narrow ones because they can affect your face symmetry.

3 Square shaped face

As the name says, the lines of the square shaped faces are a bit sharper and the bones are pretty visible. Glasses can soften these sharp lines and in that order, always pick glasses that don’t have sharp edges. Round and oblong lenses are recommendable, as well as lenses that go narrower in depth.

6 Round shaped face

Opposite of the square shaped faces, the round shape does not have sharp lines and in fact, there is no definition here, as there is a square shape. When you are picking glasses, your main goal is to make your face appear more angular and slimmer. Narrow framed glasses will elongate your face. Rectangular lenses are perfect for this shape.

7 Oblong shaped face

These type of faces are pretty long and not wide enough. Usually, this type has long nose, so when people with oblong shaped face are choosing glasses, they should seek frames that would shorten their face and make it appear smaller. The best shaped glasses for these faces are the ones that are bigger in height and not in width. The lenses should cover the entire area of the eye. Frames with low bridges will shorten your nose and make sure that the frames aren’t too thin or too thick.
