The first step is to diagnose what face shape you belong to.
A person’s facial shape has a lot to do with the choice of hairstyle, clothing version, accessories, etc.
Face shapes are usually divided into eight types: oval (goose egg), inverted triangle (melon), square triangle, oblong, rectangle, square, diamond, and round.
Among the above eight face shapes, the oval face (goose egg face) and inverted triangle face (melon face) are the standard face shapes.
Whether it is glasses or hairstyles, the purpose of image design is to shape the non-standard face shape to the standard face shape.
Choose frames according to your face shape
1, oval face
The widest part of this face shape is located in the frontal bone area, and it moves smoothly and evenly towards the forehead and chin, which is a standard face shape. Generally speaking, you can wear any style of glasses.
2. Inverted triangle face
The inverted triangle face is also a standard face shape; you can wear any kind of glasses, just be careful to avoid choosing heart-shaped glasses, this kind of glasses repeat the face shape will make a face look more pointed.
3, long and rectangular face
Wide-edge nose frames and dark-colored temples will break the sense of straight lines of long faces. The choice should be to pick round or slightly longer frames. Frames with large widths and low temples can modify the shape of your face and reduce the length of your face. And pick browline glasses are also a wise choice for this face shape.
4, Square face
This face shape is characterized by a wide forehead. The face is angular, the jawbone area is high and wide, the side of the face is very inconspicuous, and the face is square.
In the choice of frames, you can choose oval streamline frames, and softer square frames are most suitable. The frame lines need to be delicate and simple. Avoid choosing glasses that are too square, as they repeat the shape of the face and will make it appear more square.
In order to elongate the face, you can choose a frame with a small height or a darker upper and lower frame, or a lighter color. The high position and narrow width of the temples can also help to elongate the face. Wearing metal frames with bright tones can also eliminate this stiffness.
5, Triangular face
For this angular face shape, round and oval frames are ideal for softening the rigid lines of your face.
Choose frames that are narrower in the upper part of the face and taller in height to blend in with the wide upper part of the face. Also, higher-positioned temples can have this effect.
6, diamond-shaped face
The diamond-shaped face is characterized by sunken temples and prominent cheekbones, so it is suitable to wear glasses that can compensate for the temples and cover the cheekbones. The frames of glasses suitable for diamond-shaped faces are large because of the need to modify the temples and cheekbones.
But the frame should not be too big; this is also very important; all purchase glasses according to their facial shape; buying too big and too small glasses is not suitable.
Careful children may have found a rule that almost all face shapes in the selection of frames follow the same principle: reverse lines to make up for the relationship, remember not to pick and face shape to repeat the frame type.
According to the characteristics of the five features to choose the frame
Some people choose frames according to their facial shape, but they still don’t look good wearing them, so it’s time to take special consideration of the features of the five senses and some facial characteristics.
1. Eyebrow-eye distance is wide
For a wider eyebrow-eye distance, the thickness of the upper frame can be increased appropriately when choosing glasses. For a beautiful long face, you can choose a full-rim frame thick frame. For short faces and big noses, it is recommended to choose half-frame glasses and increase the thickness of the frame between the eyebrows and eyes.
2. Wide jaw
For rectangular faces, square faces, and other facial types with wide jaws, never choose boxy glasses again. When picking glasses for a face with a wide jaw, the glasses should be wider, and the length of the frame should be longer to modify the jaw, by contrast, making the jaw appear less wide.
3. Large nose, wide nose
If you have a large nose and a wide nose, try to choose a frame with a relatively higher nasal bridge position, choose a frame with a thinner nasal bridge position, and try to choose one with a relatively larger nasal bridge width and a larger opening angle.
This can visually maximize the sense of coherence of the nose, make it look longer, and will not squeeze the nose very wide.
Another idea is to wear half-frame or rimless glasses; without the black line outline, the big nose part will not become so obvious.
4. Short face
When picking glasses for a short face, both the glasses and the frame can be chosen narrower to make it look more harmonious with the face. You can also choose half-frame glasses so that the visual focus is also on the eyebrows and eyes.
Do not choose toad mirror frames for short faces, as they will continue to move the line of sight to the lower half of the face and crowd the space of the lower half of the face.
5. Smooth lines
For the smooth lines of the round face, goose egg face, and do not recommend the frame to round glasses.
The face line is more rounded, and you can consider more angular glasses, small curvature of the cat eye glasses, and box glasses can be.
6. eyebrow shape fit
When picking a framed mirror, the curvature of the upper edge of the frame is similar to the curvature of the eyebrows and cannot conflict with the curvature of the eyebrow shape. Also, the upper edge of the frame should be flush with or below the eyebrows, not over the eyebrows.
Finally, I would like to emphasize that the comfort of wearing frames is always higher than the aesthetics; when selecting a frame, you must wear it on your face to feel how comfortable it is and how uncomfortable it is, and then the good-looking frames should be passed.
