An indispensable accessory: how to pick up glasses according to the shape of the face?
Glasses are a serious accessory that can sometimes change a person’s face beyond recognition, make it more attractive, or vice versa, significantly spoil the appearance. In order for the latter not to happen, you need to learn how to pick up glasses according to the shape of the face, with which we will further help you.
Choosing glasses in the shape of the face
Decide what your face shape is by focusing on the image below:
And now look how to choose the right accessory according to this form.
First, let's figure out how to pick up glasses according to the shape of the face, if you are the lucky winner of the “oval”. Despite the fact that the oval is recognized as ideal, and this form is almost any option, here, too, has its own nuances.
First of all, the “ovals” are beautiful in their proportions, which must be preserved, therefore, the accessory should be selected in size: no too wide frames; Also this accessory should not subside or hang out on the nose.
And besides this limitation, the “oval” can wear copies of different geometric shapes with dark and light frames, butterfly glasses, cat glasses, aviators (“droplets”), with a semi-rimmed frame or rimless.
"Circle" and other forms of faces in how to choose the right glasses according to the shape of the face, are guided by the perfect "oval". So, in order to correct a round face with glasses, you need to work hard to visually lengthen it.
Forget about the wide light frames, which will make the face even wider, about small glasses and round glasses. Your option is a rectangular or square shape, as well as options with angles that are pronounced - such as glasses, butterflies, "cat" frames, etc.
First of all, squares should try to soften the angularity. That is why glasses for a square face should be with round, drop-shaped or oval frames.
Copies of a square shape are taboo, the same goes for glasses with small glasses. Pay attention to the frame: you can pick up color or with patterns on its upper part, as long as it is not wider than your face. It will be good to look at all and without rim.
The length of the rectangle is much greater than the width, so the difference is to balance and soften the sharp corners of the chin. Here, too, we reject square shapes, narrow glasses and thin frames, and pay attention to the glass with half frames and a low-set jumper on the nose. To this form, you can pick up colored massive frames.

- Oh yeah! Are they up to me?
- No, the face is still visible.

How to pick up glasses in the shape of the face, if you have it elongated? The narrow face, besides also elongated, needs to visually make it a little wider. In fact, here are the same types as the glasses for a square face: oval, rounded glasses, a safe option - "aviators".
Since such persons are characterized by the presence of a broad face, but a narrow forehead and chin, they can be balanced with the help of glasses. The square shape will not suit you, but still be wary of narrow and subtle options that only emphasize the inherent flaws of your type.
Choose the forms that can smooth out your features - this is an elongated massive frame that will emphasize the eyebrows, as well as the rounded shape.Look especially good at a rimless or half-rim version.
Here we will tell how to choose glasses according to the shape of a face, if you have a face in the shape of a heart, but these recommendations are also suitable for “triangles”, which are distinguished separately in some classifications. Since for such people the upper front part is wide, and the lower one, on the contrary, is very narrow, the task is to expand it.
To balance the bottom and top, you should choose a round or oval specimens with light rim or without it. Avoid glasses-cats and other similar models with pronounced angles and width greater than the face itself.
Sometimes this form is also called pear-shaped. The situation here is opposite to the persons-hearts: the main goal of the “inverted triangles” is to balance the narrow forehead and the heavy chin. Expand the top will help such forms of points as "cats" and butterfly glasses - in other words, the lower part of the glasses should be narrower than the top. Say “no” to narrow rims with right angles.
