A lot of people ask themselves this question and still don’t know what their face shape is. Here are the six major face shapes, and glasses that fit them perfectly. This will definitely answer the common question which is “what is my face shape?”


1.Oval shaped face

An oval-shaped face is described as proportional. Also, oval-shaped faces are usually long and at the same time, narrow. People who have oval-shaped faces possess round jawlines and round chins too. The widest part of an oval face is definitely the forehead.

Furthermore, people with oval-shaped faces can wear any eyeglass frame. However, round and rectangular eyeglass frames suit them better. These are the major eyeglass frames that complement an oval face shape .

A recommendation for people with oval-shaped faces is the Elizaveta oval eyeglass.

2.Round shaped face

Round-shaped faces are usually short. They also have soft contours and possess a broad hairline. Also, people with round-shaped faces usually have wide cheekbones. Their jawline and forehead possess the same width. However, the widest part of a round face is the cheekbone.

 

In addition, round faces look good on a variety of eyeglass frames. For instance, square, rectangular, cat-eye, and aviator frames. However, we recommend the Melusine square eyeglass for men and women.

The recommended eyeglass clearly has a square frame. This frame is designed to make the wearer look young. We recommended the Melusine square glass frame because of the fitting it gives to round faces. Finally, they go well for any occasion.

 

3.Diamond shaped face

Most people don’t know that there are people who possess diamond-shaped faces. It is a rare feature. Some people who possess this diamond-shaped face don’t even know about it. Well, this is how they look. Firstly, their forehead and jawline are narrow.

At the same time, their jawline is longer than their forehead. Also, their cheeks are pointed and high. Before buying an eyeglass for your diamond-shaped face, consider giving the face a lighter look. That is, you need an eyeglass that will draw attention to your eyes. We recommend you buy a rectangle eyeglass. And Michael rectangle eyeglasses will definitely draw attention to your eyes.

This face shape is also rare but it is not as rare as a diamond-shaped face. A heart-shaped face is known to have a narrow chin. They also have high cheekbones with very broad brows. Heart-shaped faces look good in every eyeglass frame. However, they look better in oval, rectangular, rimless, cat-eye, and aviator frames.
