What is the shape of your face?

It is advisable to opt for a rectangular or square pair in order to refine the shape of your face. Round or oval glasses tend to blend with the shape of an equally round face.


  • Oval face


If you have an oval face, you are lucky because the proportions of the latter are balanced. Therefore, you can afford to wear everything, round glasses, square, cat’s eye, rectangular among others.


  • Lower base triangle face


If you have a fairly small forehead, and your cheeks and chin are wider, you have a triangular face with a lower base. In this case, choose thick frames, with bright colors to accentuate the eyes and rebalance it all.


  • Upper base triangular face


You will understand, in this case it is the forehead which is wider than the rest of the face. So opt for a pair of glasses with thin rounded frames and made of light materials. Avoid strong colors and favor pastel colors.


  • Rectangular face


We are talking here of a rather long and not very broad face. The cat eye style will delight you. You can also opt for frames with patterns or several colors. You will need to avoid rectangular glasses which will tend to harden your face.


  • Square face


If you have a strong jaw and a broad forehead, the shape of your face is square. Opt for geometric shapes while avoiding the square, or soften your face with an oval or round frame.


  • Rhombus face


This form is very rare, where the line of the eye and the jaw is narrow with wide cheekbones. Invest in frameswith geometric shapes, or even in cat or butterfly eye. This choice will allow you to soften your features at the cheekbones.
