What Are The Best Eyeglasses For Your Face Shape? - Infographic

Different Glasses for Different Face Shapes

Wearing glasses by far is the most popular way to correct refraction problems, but people who find wearing glasses difficult and disorienting opt to have Lasik surgery from a well-known and trusted laser eye surgery centre, such as Optical Express. Lasik surgery is quick, painless and corrects the vision nearly instantaneously. However, many people are still not aware of the advantages of Lasik surgery that’s why wearing glasses remains popular.

Glasses can be regarded as topmost personal accessory. Now that many companies introduce stylish and innovative glasses, it becomes a fashion statement. When looking for glasses, people consider not just the style but also the design that will complement their face shape.

How to get the face shape? If you do not know your face shape, pull your hair back then outline your face with a soft eyebrow pencil or lip liner.  What shape do you see; oval, heart, round, square or oblong? What do you think is the design and style of glasses that will look good on you?

Below are the different glasses for different face shapes that can serve as guide when looking for perfect glasses.

face shapes

Oval
A person with oval-shaped face is lucky as oval shape is considered ideal. Because of its almost perfect alignment, just about any style of eyeglasses will be flattering.

Heart (wide forehead and narrow chin)
Aviators and dark framed is not recommended as it will enhance the width of the forehead.  Softly curved wraparounds with twisted side detail would be perfect because it won’t draw attention to the forehead.

Round
Dark-colored rectangular styles with straight or angular lines will contrast the round-shaped face by making the face look slim. Avoid round frames with designs and/or embellishments because it will make the face look wider.

Square (wide forehead and jaw lines with strong angles)
Round frames, circular lenses, narrow oval or frames with more width than depth will soften the face’s angularity.

Oblong (long face with long lines along the cheek)
Wider square frame is a good counterpoint to oblong-shaped face. This will make the face appear shorter.

In Ancient Cultures, Turquoise is an important gemstone because it is considered as protection against the evil eye and also believed to promote prosperity. If given by someone, that means the wearer will be protected from negative energy and will receive good fortune. Hmmm…let us see. 🙂 Turquoise can be with spider web pattern or vein free but I prefer the vein free just like these beautiful pieces. And I so love the color (bluish with greenish shade of cyan) that is so distinct.

Peridot, on the other hand, is known as a stone of lightness and beauty. It is believed to be a powerful protector against harm and negative emotions and is perfect to be worn by those who don’t have too many problems. Perfect for me, huh?

Topaz, which is also known as the “gem of the sun”, is one of the most important gemstones historically. It is available in many colors but the topaz used on this set I guess is the golden-yellow variety which is relatively scarce.

These lovely ring and earrings set matches most of my tops! Thank you so much Tita Melba.

The mailman knocked on our gate again but this time he handed me a parcel. Yey! I finally got my new butterfly sunglasses from Firmoo.

The lenses of my new butterfly sunglasses are photochromic and because it’s wraparound it fits my face perfectly. What I love about it is the curves contrast by double chin. 🙂

Scarf – A Fashionable Piece

I used to own and use scarf when I was in high school…you know the fanciful teen fashion. Oh, I miss those days! When I entered college, I preferred to be simple, besides too much accessorizing is not allowed in our school. Now I realized that I need to buy myself again a pair of elegant scarf. It may not be expensive but good enough to match most of my clothes. I may not be too old for that, am I? 🙂

Scarf nowadays is not just used for religious reasons or to keep you warm. It is now a fashionable piece. It can be used as cover for big breasts or define the shape of your breast without showing the cleavage on your plunging neckline. I don’t need scarf for this purpose though as I don’t have boobies to hide or define, lol! It can also be used as headband, a perfect hair accessory most especially on summer. It can used as neck accessory as well for that effortless fashionable look.
