Whenever you go shopping for glasses, it is always a great idea to bring along someone to give you an honest opinion about how they look. When you pick glasses that look great on you, they are not only fashionable, they provide you with a look that really works with your face shape and best features.
It is a great idea to get the sales associates help you choose several eyeglass frames that work with your face. Since they do this all the time, they have a great sense of what works on people.
When you are choosing eye glasses, choose frames that help to bring out your best features.
When you choose the frames for your glasses, a good optician like Mike from Look Optical can help you choose what fits your face the best, as well as customize the glasses to be the best for your health and comfort.
A round face has similar width and length in the same proportions, with no angles. To enhance your eyes, if you have a round face, narrow eyeglass frames are excellent, since they contrast the curved lines and provide an appearance of wider eyes, and more length to your face.
An oval face is idealized because of balanced proportions. To enhance your eyes, try frames that are as wide, or even wider, than the broadest part of your face. Walnut-shaped faces are often ideal, since they are not too deep and do not appear to be too narrow.
If your face appears to be longer than it is wide, with straight cheek lines, frames that have more depth than width can help to balance your features. A low bridge, with some decoration on the rims can help to add width to your face and bring out your beautiful eyes.
A narrow forehead that widens at the cheeks and chin is considered a base-down triangle. Frames that are heavily accented with colour and detailing on the top-half can effectively add width to the narrow upper third of your face and the right colour can also enhance your eyes.
If your face appears to be wide in the top third, and more narrow in the bottom third, you have what is considered a Base-Up Triangle shape. Your eyes can really stand out if you try frames that are wider at the bottom, with very light materials, colours and rimless frame styles. Rimless frames give a light, airy feeling since there are no heavy frames around the lenses.
If you have broad cheekbones that are high and somewhat dramatic, along with a face that is narrow at the eye line and jawline, you are blessed with the rarest shape of face. If you go to a big eyewear store, they may not have as much to offer as an optician who can customize your glasses for you. To highlight your eyes, try on frames that have detailing or decorated brow lines. Rimless, oval or cat-eye shapes are also very effective in showing your eyes and balancing your face as well.
A strong jaw line, broad forehead and similar proportions in length and width are the elements of a face that is square-shaped. Narrow frames, and frames that have more width than depth with narrow ovals help to lengthen the face and soften the angles.
