IV. Know your face shape and what type of glasses are suitable for your appearance
Glasses not only have the function of correcting various refractive errors, but also have the function of aesthetics. Therefore, having a pair of glasses suitable for your face shape will radiate the brilliance of your personality.
1. How to choose glasses for different face shapes
Oval face, also known as egg-shaped face, is suitable for wearing all kinds of frames, but the size of the frame should be proportional to the size of the face.Especially for women, oval face can be matched with any style of frame, but it is best not to use straight-line frame, that is, too high or too flat frame.
People with round faces usually have shorter faces, and they need frames with more obvious edges and corners to improve the contour of the face. They are suitable for slender frames, square frames or pear-shaped frames.Therefore, they are best matched with a slightly curved elongated frame to balance the overall feel.Horned and square frames are good for modifying facial lines, highlighting vertical lines.
Men: Flat or pear-shaped frames should be selected, avoid too round and square frames.
Women: In principle, avoid using any frames with very obvious features. It is better to choose slightly flattened and warped frames. It is not suitable to choose a frame that is too round or straight.
People with square faces have wider cheeks, shorter faces, more prominent mandibular lines and more edges and corners, which makes them look strong. In order to soften the facial lines, square faces are suitable for round frames, especially those with round-bottom rims, which can reduce the feeling of too obvious edges and corners.Choose a frame that takes curve slightly to be able to make face look softer, soothe the two wide cheeks.And you should choose frames that are slightly wider than your face shape, which will make your face look slightly longer.
At the same time, you can also choose frames with smaller height——if the frame is too high, it will take up most of the face and make the face appear shorter.If possible, choose a frame with a higher leg position, since it makes the face appear longer.
Rectangular faces, like square faces, have obvious angular jaws. We still need round frames to soften the edges and corners.Due to a longer face, the frame should cover the face as much as possible, and you need rectangular frames and choose thick frames to reduce the impression of long faces.
At the same time, you can also choose a larger frame with the legs in the middle, so that the frame can occupy the appropriate part of the face, and shorten the face.
Men: It is advisable to choose frames with high rims, such as those with large approximate square shape.
Women: It is advisable to choose an approximate square frame with edges and corners, and the height of the rims can be bigger to neutralize the excessively long face.
Melon seed-shaped face
People with melon seed-shaped face are blessed, and they can wear a variety of glasses, among which elliptical glasses with narrow frames are best suited, especially those with narrow frames and vertical lines:
Men: It is advisable to choose a frame with a narrower lower side than the upper side of the rims, generally not a flat frame.
Women: It is advisable to choose glasses with a narrower lower side than the upper side and upward-turning glasses to increase the visual length of the face.
A heart-shaped face, also known as an inverted triangle face, is characterized by a broad forehead, prominent cheekbones, and a narrow, pointed jaw. This face shape is not balanced from top to bottom in appearance, with the top larger and more prominent than the bottom.It is necessary to wear a frame with the opposite appearance, which is wider at the bottom so as to increase the width of the lower half of the face.Choosing a lower leg position also helps improve this effect.
Fringe: the upper edge of the frame should avoid touching the hair;
Curly hair : the frame should not be too large to prevent the rims from touching the hair.
You can choose the right style of glasses according to your temperament.
Coordination: similar color collocation;
Contrast: choose warm and cold colors to foil;
Embellishment: embellish the clothing with eye-catching colors to give a finishing touch;
Time and occasion
It is very important to choose a pair of glasses that suits your personality and the occasion.Formal occasions with a smaller frame, exquisite style glasses, both elegant and capable; Leisure, parties and other occasions, it is appropriate to choose popular glasses, both youth and fashion;Of course, but also according to your favorite, choose irregular shape lens glasses to go in and out of some personalized party occasions.
2. The influence of nose on the selection of glasses
The nose is the only vertical line on the face, so emphasizing the line can enhance the three-dimensional sense of the face.
People with short noses should choose glasses with the lens frame joint at the top.On the contrary, they should choose glasses with joints at the bottom, which can effectively "shorten" the length of the nose.
People with a larger nose are suitable for glasses with a high lens frame joint. If the frame does not touch the nose and the frame itself is thinner,the effect will be better.
People with low nose bridges and those with high nose bridges should have different frames. The best frames should be close to the eyes, so that eye fatigue may not be easily generated.
If the nose is too tall, wear a low bridge or a double bridge frame to conceal the problem. If you wear a high bridge frame, the small nose will appear larger.
3. Position of the eyes
The position of the eyes in the lens gives a different impression.Generally speaking, the position of the eyes appear to be carefree and listless at the top;It feels funny at the bottom.Therefore, it is necessary to choose the right glasses, so that the eyes are slightly above the horizontal midline of the rims.
Eyebrows have a significant impact on the facial image, and glasses are also sensitive to the aesthetic defects of facial details, so usually the top of the frame should be equal to or slightly higher than the eyebrow arch (if the frame slides, the top should be as high as the eyebrow arch), that is, the eyebrows are the same height as the top of the frame, but slightly above the frame is ideal. If the wearer has a high eyebrow arch, it is better to choose a dark frame over a light one, which accentuates the wearer's brow height and gives the impression that another eyebrow exists.
For upturned eyebrows, the tip of the brow naturally cannot be aligned with the frame of the glasses, but the header of the brow must be aligned with the frame. At this time, the glasses with a straight frame must be selected.
People with thick eyebrows should choose glasses with a thin frame or no frame, or they will weaken the impression of the eyebrows.On the contrary, glasses with thick frames are suitable for people with light and thin eyebrows.
In short, there should be no gaps between the eyebrows and the frame of the glasses, or it doesn't feel natural.
