Eyeglasses aren't typically talked about as part of a beauty look, yet on the off chances, if you ask me, they should be. This is because flying on a couple of glasses can unbelievably change up your look from basic to a class that makes a statement. Whether you wear glasses on a regular chance, go after them only on occasion, or just popping up a pair on sometimes to put on a little extra fun, the frames you pick can eventually direct the way the world sees you and more importantly, how you see yourself.

Factors like frame shape, color, and style all come into the most important elements and can alter your aesthetic. So when picking a pair, it's better to be aware of your face shape and to have some thoughts of what you're going for to make the shopping process more seamless. You know what also makes a difference? A little inspiration! That's why we went ahead and curated a little handy guide where you'll learn that there's a frame for everyone - and we can tell you what the best fit is for you!


What Face Shape Do I Have?

It is most likely that you have one of the following face shapes: oval, heart, round, square, or triangle. By looking at a mirror and taking a closer look at your facial features, you can figure out which one matches you the best! Read on below to know which face shape you have, and what glasses will look perfect on you.



Oval Faces

Well... You’ve struck gold! The most common and almost perfect face shape: well balanced and softly rounded, with a forehead slightly wider than the jaw and high cheekbones. The sky’s the limit for you as all frames will complement your face perfectly. But to keep your true oval shape, look for styles that are as wide as the broadest part of your face. Why not try some round, rectangle and square shapes.

Frames to Avoid: Frames with a small width can draw attention to a narrow line, so try and stay away from these.


Round Faces

For you, it’s all about creating angles! A round face has softer angles with a wide forehead, often with full cheeks and a rounded chin. Rectangular, square and narrow shapes are your best friends as these styles give the illusion of a longer face by making it appear slimmer and longer, adding balance to your round features.

Frames to Avoid: Small, round and oversized shapes will make your face appear rounder, so it’s best to steer clear.


Square Faces

It's hip to be square! And when it comes to proportion, a square face has more angular lines with equally wide cheekbones, forehead, and jaw. Many great pairs of lenses can flatter your features but your aim should be to elongate your face and to soften the jawline. Round and oval style frames or glasses that sit high on the nose will help you achieve this while adding length that flatters this face.

Frames to Avoid: Thin, angular & square frames will draw attention to your chin, so try and avoid these.


Triangle Faces

A triangle face is widest at the jaw and gradually narrows through to the forehead. To minimize the width of the top of the face, try frames that are wider at the bottom, very light in color & materials and rimless frame styles. Basically, glasses frames that are wider on the bottom, Frames that are all one color and made of light material.

Frames to Avoid: Frames that wide at the top, styles with a bold upper and light lower rim.


Heart Faces

Lucky you! Lots of shapes will suit you. People out there with heart-shaped faces are revered for their broader brow and sharply tapered jawline. You have a giant list of frames to choose from but your goal is to choose frames that will provide contrast and balance to your face, not mimic it. Bottom-heavy frames will help add width to the lower face, while rimless frames will let your natural face shape shine.


Frames to Avoid: Styles that are wider at the top, like pilot and semi rimmed glasses, will emphasize the wider part of your face, so say NO to those.


Now that you perfectly know about your face shape & structure, you must be wondering to try a new look. An Elegant eyeglass can change your appearance and Lenskart has a lot of eyewear styles to choose from.


Tips: The key to finding the right frames is to remember that opposites attract. Select eyeglasses that contrast from your facial contours and bring symmetry and balance to your prominent features: choose angular shapes for rounded faces, and rounded shapes for angular faces.

Q. How can I figure out which color standard will suit my face?

A. It is very easy to understand what the colors that fit you better are. Look yourself in the mirror and answer a simple question: Do I feel more comfortable wearing Gold or Silver? If your answer is Gold: you have to choose Warm frame colors and If your answer is Silver: you have to choose Cool frame Colors.


Q. Does hair color also matters while choosing frames?

A. Yes, it does matters just like it goes with the frame colors. Hair colors also are considered warm or cool. Strawberry blond, platinum, blue-black, white, Auburn, salt-and-pepper and ash brown are cool. Warm hair colors include golden blond, brownish black, brown-gold and "dirty gray."
