THE SHAPE OF YOUR EYEWEAR MUST CONTRAST THE SHAPE OF YOUR FACE


HEART-SHAPED FACE
CHARACTERISTICS: wide forehead, high cheekbones, narrow chin

Look for frames that will broaden the appearance of the chin and minimise the forehead width.

CHOOSE: slightly rounded frames that dip between the eyes to break up the wider forehead or frames that are wider at the bottom.
AVOID: overly embellished frames and top-heavy styles that draw attention upward.
FRAME SUGGESTIONS: aviators, butterfly-styles, rimless profiles

OBLONG FACE
CHARACTERISTICS: face is longer than it is wide, narrow chin and cheeks, large forehead

Look for frames that break the length of the face, making it appear shorter and wider.

CHOOSE: deep frames to minimise facial length, and wide, oversized frames to bring proportion to the face.
AVOID: short frames without depth that will accentuate face length, as well as frames that are too narrow.
FRAME SUGGESTIONS: oversized styles, wrap-arounds

ROUND FACE
CHARACTERISTICS
: full cheekbones with little to no angles, the width and length of the face being similarly proportionate

Look for frames that will make the face appear longer and thinner.

CHOOSE: slightly angular frames that will create a narrowing effect
AVOID: round frames of lenses that will exaggerate this shape face
FRAME SUGGESTIONS: rectangles, squares, sporty or squared-off retro styles

Grass – Bamboo Natural


 

OVAL FACE
CHARACTERISTICS
: chin is slightly narrower than the forehead, considered the perfect face shape due to the balanced proportions

Look for frames that keep the natural balance of the oval.

CHOOSE: a size that is in proportion to the face.
AVOID: oversized styles that will swallow a petite oval shape or too-small styles on a larger face.
FRAME SUGGESTIONS: options aren’t limited, ovals can really have fun and play with styles available to them

Grass – Sunset Glow


 

SQUARE FACE
CHARACTERISTICS
: broad forehead, strong jawline, wide chin and cheekbones

Look for frames that balance out the strong jawline and make the face appear longer.

CHOOSE: round, oval or curved frames to soften the face and jaw
AVOID: boxy and angular frames, as the sharp lines will come across as harsh
FRAME SUGGESTIONS: rounded or oval Jackie O styles, cat-eyes, semi-rimless frames with soft curves
