Choose the Right Eyewear

What is the best eyewear frames suited for you ?

Well a lot of people think the same thing, will it fit and look aright on my face, some people go to the store and try on glasses, which is best way as you know for sure if they fit and suit you, but if your not able to do
this we can help to find the correct style to suit your face.

First we need to find three keys:

  1. The frame has to be to same size measurements to scale with the face size.

  2. The Frame shape has to combine with contrast with the face shape.

  3. What correct colour suited to your face and your personal best feature.

Well most faces have a combination of different shapes and angles, there are several types of shapes of peoples faces like round, long, oval,
square, wide, so below is information to help you out trying to find the correct style for you to work with.


Oval Face


Oval shaped facess are considered to be ideal for most frames as they have balanced proportions, the chin is a little narrower than the forehead, also the cheekbones are a little higher

  • The part of the face where it is broadest the frames should be wide to suit your measurements
  • Make sure the face keeps to the same proportions to the frames
  • Make sure you keep to the eye brow line so it will not create a different expression
Round Face


Well if your face is round with a touch of a few angles, make sure you keep to your proportions of width & lenght.

  • For a round face you need a light angle and narrow frame which will help to lengthen the face
  • Best to avoid the round frames styles
  • The frames are best to be wider than higher
Square Face


This is for people who have a strong jaw line, a broad forehead, and wide cheekbones and chin which is what characterize a square face.

  • A narrow frame with gentle curves will help to minimize the square shape of the face
  • The frame is best to be more horizontal
  • Oval frames are a good opinion
Rectangular Face

 Oblong / Rectangular

Oblong faces are longer, so the best option is a frame that is not wide , but that has a high lens. This will help the face look shorter.

  • It is best to have more depth in the frame from top to bottom
  • Best suited to soften the face are, round and deep frames.
  • The bridge is best to be very low to help shorten the nose area
Heart Face

The Base-up Triangle or Heart Shaped Face 

This shape has a very wide forehead and high cheekbones. Face narrows gradually to the chin.

  • Frames should add width bellow the eye line to offset the narrow chin. Very light colours and rimless styles are very effective.
  • Try frames that are wider at the bottom.
  • Other choices include aviator, butterfly, or low triangle styles; frames with rounded tops and squared bottoms will also work
Base down Triangle Face

Base-Down Triangle

This triangular face has a narrow forehead that widens at the cheek and chin areas. To add width and emphasize the narrow upper third of the face,
try frames that are heavily accented with colour and detailing on the top half or cat-eye shapes.

Diamond Face


Diamond-shaped faces are narrow at the jaw line, and cheekbones are often high and dramatic. This is the rarest face shape.

To highlight the eyes and bring out the cheekbones, try frames that have detailing or distinctive brow lines, or try rimless frames or oval and cat-eye shapes.
