I don’t know about the majority of people, but I can never find a pair of perfectly fitting eyeglass frames that fit my face while looking great at the same time. I almost dread going shopping for them when the time comes. For many people like myself, how a pair of designer or hi end glasses look on our face is the single most important aspect of finding the perfect pair of eyeglass frames. The only thing you need to do to make sure you pick out the perfect eyeglass frames is to simply find one that suits the shape of your face with a small judgement of the color or gradient.
Eyeglasses are more than just means to an end. They do far more than just helping you see the world, as they are important fashion statements with huge effect on your appearance. If you’ve ever had the misfortune of buying glasses that just don’t look right on you, these following tips can hopefully help you out for next time. After a long and frustrating process of finding the perfect glasses frames to fit your face shape, here are a few tips to help you out:
* What you want to do first off is inspect your face to see what kind of shape it is. To do this you need to pull your hair back into a ponytail if you have long hair and look at it closely in a mirror. Different face
* shapes require different frame styles. Oval faces, for example, are proportionally balanced on the top and bottom. Any frame type will work with an oval face.
* People with long, thin faces need a larger frame that gives off the impression of a wider and shorter than it really is face. Go with frames in round or triangular shapes. Even a wide, rectangular shape can work with this type of face. Another way to broaden a long, thin face is to wear a frame that has color around the sides of it. More people are starting to wear round frames that are made from a thin metal. This look softens the hard, angular look of a square face, of someone with wide forehead and cheeks, and an angular chin.
* Round faces are fuller and have a soft, gentle chin, wide cheeks and smaller cheekbones. For all of these mentioned reasons is why people with this type of face shouldn’t wear round frames. It will only give off the impression of a large face. You don’t want that. Instead, wear boxy or rectangular ones and go with a lighter color to make you face appear less heavy.
* If you find yourself having a heart-shaped face, then your best bet is balance with frames that are wider at the bottom and narrower at the top. This looks much better for faces with a wide forehead that angles down to a smaller chin.
* There are a good number of people with a diamond-shaped face. This means that they have a narrow forehead, wide temples and an small angular chin. Flatter these facial features with small frames that have geometric or oval shapes minimizing the horizontal distance between the temples.
* If you have any facial features, then you it is a smart decision to buy a smaller pair of frames, especially with a beard. Large frames only mask your features that you want to show off. Small heads need to stick to wearing small frames that are no wider than the widest part of your face. Never wear glasses that look like they are tight on your face and squeezing it.
To summarize my emphasis on the definition of you that is reflected in the fames you are wearing, remember to not buy on impulse because you may sacrifice style over fit/comfort. Be patient with your own selection process and get the frames that suit you all around. Happy Shopping 🙂
