Eyewear for Your Face Shape

Find The Right Frame or Eyewear For Your Face Shape



Because a square face is so angular, a rounded or oval shaped frame will soften the look of the face. The top of the frames should sit high enough on the face to downplay the jawline.





If your face is broad in the forehead but narrow at the chin you should avoid large frames or bold colors. Frames with a thin rim and vertical lines will help balance the bottom part of your face.



People with round faces have somewhat of a wide forehead and rounded chin. Choose a frame with an angular shape to break up the roundness. Also choose glasses that are wider than they are deep to make the face look longer.


If you have a large forehead and a neat, heart-shaped chin, you can wear both round and angular shapes. Avoid glasses that are wider at the top than the bottom, it will make your face appear top heavy.



If you have an oval shaped face like Natalie Portman, you’re lucky! Most frames look good with this face shape as long as the size of the frames is in proportion to the face.

Consider the Nose

Large nose- large over-sized frames are recommended for balance. Small frames will accentuate the nose.

Long nose- Frames with high sidebars that draw attention upward toward the temples and away from the nose are a good choice. A double bridge helps a nose appear shorter.
