When it comes to your beauty look, it’s no secret that your face shape plays a huge role in what works for you and what may be better suited for someone else. We’ve covered makeup techniques like the right way to contour and the perfect eyebrow shape and hairstyling options including how to find the best part and the best bangs for you—all based on your face shape. But what about your glasses? If you have less than 20/20 vision, or simply want to rock a pair of spectacles to make a fashion statement, your face shape should play a role in finding your most flattering pair. Lucky for you, we’re sharing how to pick the best glasses for round faces, square faces, oval faces, and heart-shaped faces. Click through to find your perfect specs!
If you have a heart-shaped face, your forehead is wider while your chin in narrow and pointed. You have high cheekbones and a defined jawline. When it comes to your glasses, you’ll want to choose frames that’ll balance out your face shape. Round, oval, and rectangular shapes will be most flattering, though be sure to choose frames that are wider than your forehead! Picking a pair that is equal in width will only highlight the difference between your forehead and chin. You’ll also want to search for a pair of frames that are bottom heavy. This means looking for glasses that are slightly wider at the bottom, longer than they are wide, or have a slightly thicker frame at the bottom. Just keep your goal in mind and you’ll find your perfect pair in no time.
Those with square faces have a face that is equally as long as it is wide. When choosing frames, you’ll want to look for a pair that will elongate your face shape and soften your angular features. Your most flattering frames will be rounded in shape—browline, thin and round, and cat eye glasses are a few of our top picks! These will help to soften your sharp features. Additionally, you’ll want to choose a frame that’s slightly taller than it is wide to create the illusion of length.
Have an oval face shape? Lucky you! Your face is slightly longer than it is wide, while also symmetrical. Those with oval faces can pull off quite a few different eyeglass frame shapes, though there are certain frames that are more flattering than others. If you have an oval face shape, try rectangular, square, aviator, or cat eye glasses. Look for frames that are wider than the broadest part of your face to avoid adding any extra length. Oversized frames are particularly flattering, since they highlight how balanced your face shape is.
Is your face equal in length and width, but rounded rather than defined like a square face? You have a round face shape! Your ideal specs will help add length to your face without adding any extra fullness. Angular frames—like rectangle and square shapes—will be your best bet. Look for frames that are bottom heavy, as this will add length and—most importantly—steer clear of small frames (especially small, round glasses) as these can make your round shape appear fuller. A cat eye frame can also be flattering for round faces.
After you’ve settled on your spectacles, you may be curious as to how to do your makeup when you’re wearing glasses. Thankfully, we know a look that’s amazing for glasses wearers. Here’s The Easy Eye Makeup Tutorial for Girls with Glasses.
