Round

This face shape has a balanced proportional length and width with softer angles and slightly wider, full cheeks, with equally wide forehead and jaw.

Look for angular frames to provide greater definition to the curved angles of your face and to make it appear slimmer and longer.  Good examples are square angular frames, such as Wayfarers or Cateye Shape.

Best examples are: Cateye, Rectangular, Wayfarer.

Best to avoid round frames, since they tend to accentuate your face’s contours.

Oval

This face shape has a balanced proportional length and width with softer angles and slightly wider, full cheeks, with equally wide forehead and jaw.

Almost any style works with your face. Select frames that maintain your proportional balance. Recommended that frames are as wide as your face at its widest point.  Butterfly shape works well, among others.

Best examples are: Aviator, ButterflyCateye, Rectangular, RoundWayfarer.

Avoid frames that are too large (especially too wide) for your facial features.

Heart or Diamond

This face shape has a slightly pointed chin, but is often widest at the forehead and gradually narrows through to the jaw and chin.

Look for square or oval frames with curved edges that give your jaw a broader look, and minimize the wider parts of your face, such as that above.

Best examples are: ButterflyCateye, Semi-RimlessWayfarer.

Minimise large, geometric frames that widen to your upper face or teardrop lenses or those with too much detail at the top.

Square or Rectangular

This face shape has an angular bone structure, with a strong, wide jaw line and high cheekbones. May have equally broad, or occasionally slightly narrowing forehead.
