Choosing the Best Glasses for Your Face Shape 101

Have you been struggling to find the perfect pair of glasses for your faces? If you’ve found yourself in a situation where every frame you chose looks odd or appalling on you, it means you’ve been looking for the wrong type of glasses. Whether you’re not sure what your face shape is or you had no idea that you should look for the glasses based on the shape of your face, this little guide will teach you how to find the perfect glasses for your face shape.


Round faces
Softer angles, slightly wider cheekbones, and forehead and chin of equal width are the main characteristics of round faces. Look yourself in the mirror and observe your faces for all the factors we’ve mentioned. If those are your face’s characteristics, you should be looking for frames with bold angular lines. The frames that add definition, such as rectangular frames and D-frames will be your go-to options.


Square faces
Thinner frames are the best choice for square faces. When you have a face that features a straight line from the jaw to the forehead, you'll want glasses that soften those strong lines. The width of the glasses should be a little bit wider than your cheekbones, but that will still look proportional. Feel free to go for vibrantly coloured frames that will put your eyes under the spotlight. Oval and round frames will soften the strong, angular lines and contrast them well.

Triangle faces
Just as a triangle has a wide bottom half and narrow upper half, so does a triangle face. To add balance to your facial features, we recommend glasses with a wider top and narrower bottoms. If you're unsure which glasses would suit your face best, you can always consult a Bulk Billing optometrist because they’ll know which frame to recommend. Frames that draw attention to your face will be the best, so consider cat-eye and aviator frames for the best effect.


Heart-shaped faces
Do you have high cheekbones and a wider brow area that narrows down through to the chin? If so, you have a heart-shaped face. Aviator frames, oval, and rectangular frames, as well as round ones, will flatter your face shape the most. The goal is to balance out the features of your face shape which you can do well with frames that have prominent details on their lower portion.

Diamond-shaped faces
Diamond-shaped faces will look best with oval or cat-eye glasses. The full cheeks, defined cheekbones, an angular jawline with a narrow forehead and chin are all the main features of a diamond-shaped face that need round or D-frame glasses to look flawless. You’ll want to add softer contrast to your well-defined cheekbones, and round glasses will do a great job.


Oval faces
A narrow forehead and an even narrower chin are the main characteristics of oval faces. Glasses with bold shapes and styles will flatter your facial features the most. Think geometric shapes and D-frames, as they'll add angular contrast and compliment your facial features in the best way. Frames as wide as the area around your eyes can also be a good choice for you. Square or rectangular frames will seamlessly add sharper angles to your face.

Glasses can make or break your entire get-up, so you need to choose them wisely. Make sure you know the exact shape of your face to add style and sophistication to your look. Use our comprehensive guide to look for the best glasses for your face shape. Whether your face is round, oval, square, heart-shaped, triangle or diamond-shaped, we have the answer to your prayers.
