Tips to remember:

  1. Follow the line of your eyebrows with your frames
  2. Center your eyes within the lens
  3. Find frames that visually lift the eyes and cheeks
  4. 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.
