While already being overwelmed with the results that you need glasses. You know have the task of finding eyewear that actually fits and compliments your face. Some people are not as particular as others and will pick up a pair of glasses and say this is it. While others will want to find something that compliments there face and makes a statement. The key to finding this happy medium is made easy by following a few guidelines with face shapes. I know what is that you ask?
Well there are four different face shapes that we have to look at when deciding what eyewear will look good on your face. There is first the oval face. This face shape can wear almost any frame because it is naturally balanced. Most people with an oval face have high checkbones and a smaller chin and forehead. The oval face shape should consider the retangular shape or a butterfly shape to accent this face. This frame should also be atleast as wide as the broadest part of your face. This face shape is the easiest to fit for me and not because this is my face shape but its easier to find different styles that work with this face shape.
The next face shape is going to be the square-shaped face. thes faces are usually proportionate in length and width. This face shape often has a strong jawline with a square chin and a broad deep forehead. For this face shape I would definitely recommend soft oval or round frames to help soften the natural angles in the face . Usually going with a semi rimless frame will soften the look on a square face along with a frame that is also wide enough on the broadest part of the face so that the frame doesnt bow out at the temples.
Another face shape is the round face which features a soft curved look with few natural angles and is equal length and width. This face shape should stick with rectangular or geometric styles which include a combination of round and square in the design. These designs add contrast and accent there features for a very appealing look.
The last shape is the heart-shaped face. This shape face has a wide forehead with high cheekbones and a narrow jaw line and chin. This shape face is the hardest to fit. Most styles that compliment this face is going to be smaller frames with either a rimless design or a soft cat-eyed look which uplifts the eyes. The butterfly shape also works well because it is narrow near the nose and widens toward the ears. This will accent the face evenly and make the face seem more balanced.
While these are just suggestions I hope you will consider them when purchasing your eyewear. Its always good to have a patient proud of the way there glasses make them look. This encourages them to wear them more and create a look that is personalized by them. Having someone to help you with those choices is why i love my job!
