If there’s one question we get asked a lot at FramesDirect.com is how do I find glasses that fit my face shape? We get it. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the variety of face shapes and frame styles. So, we’ve come up with a little guide using some famous and familiar faces.
Tips to remember:
- Follow the line of your eyebrows with your frames
- Center your eyes within the lens
- Find frames that visually lift the eyes and cheeks
- Find the frame that fits your curves and angles
Celebrities face shapes to remember:
ROUND: Like Michelle Williams or Aziz Ansari. You have full cheeks, a rounded chin, and the length and width of your face is similar.
SQUARE: Like Angelina Jolie or Justin Timberlake. You have a prominent jawline, angular features, and your cheekbones, forehead, and jaw are similar widths.
OVAL: Like Emma Watson or George Clooney. You have balanced features, high cheekbones, and your chin is narrower than your forehead.
HEART: Like Halle Berry or Ryan Gosling. You have a broad forehead, a narrow, pointed chin and high cheekbones.
COMBO: Like Jennifer Lawrence. Your face is one-of-a-kind like her oval/heart shape.
Tips for choosing the right glasses:
ROUND: Look for strong details to create angles, wide rather than tall lenses, and nose pads to keep frames from resting on cheeks.
SQUARE: Look for a round or oval frame to soften features, frames wider than cheekbones for balance, upswept shapes for lift, and thinner frames to soften sharpness.
OVAL: Look for frames that are proportional to the rest of your features, square and rectangular frames for contrast, and remember, ovals can pull off bold shapes and bright colors.
HEART: Look for frames wider than forehead for balance and details on lower half to offset narrow jawline.0
