Choosing glasses that compliment your facial features
While Dr. Shelly Cadman's first love is to her Optometry practice and helping her patients receive the best possible care, her second passion is finding the perfect pair of glasses that compliment the wearer and express their inner nature.
Here at Eyes on Fremont, glasses are an accessory much like jewelry. Glasses express your creativity, style and confidence. The first step in finding a great pair of glasses is to select a frame that compliments your facial features.
Here are some simple guidelines to get you started:
A square face is often characterized by a strong jaw line, a broad forehead, and a wide chin and cheekbones. Frames should be selected to make the face look longer and to soften the square angles of the face. Choose frames that are slightly curved (like an oval shape) and that have more horizontal than vertical real estate.
The oval face is identifiable by its balanced proportions. The forehead is slightly wider than the chin and cheekbones are high. Choose frames that are wide or wider than the broadest part of the face and that follow your brow line. Often, diamond or rectangular shapes work best for oval shapes.
A round or full face is characterized by having the same width and length. Frames that lengthen the face are typically angular, narrow and are wider than they are deep. It is best to avoid round style frames.
Heart Shaped Face
A heart shaped face looks like a heart or a triangle with the point facing down. The forehead is very wide and cheekbones are high while the face narrows towards the chin. Choosing frames that are wider at the bottom. Generally, light colored and rimless frames work best, although aviator, butterfly and low-triangle styles also work well.
A diamond shaped face is often characterized by high, dramatic cheekbones with a narrow eye line and jaw line. Oval frames typically work best to highlight the eyes and cheekbones. Select frames that have detailing, distinctive brow lines, are rimless or a cat-eye shape for best results.
Once you have determined your face shape and recommend frame style, now it's time to start trying some on!
